Archive for the ‘Decorating’ Category

Still a few things to be finished, still quite a few boxes unpacked. But we are settling in nicely and it’s feeling like home. And what a cozy lovely home it’s gonna be.

I have to say – some people have asked me why I haven’t blogged about the renovation, with before and after photos and all – but this has all been such hard work and more stressful than I anticipated. I have a renewed appreciation for anyone who can enjoy revamping an hold home. Not for the feint of heart!

So for now here are some sunny, cheery, semi-finished, semi-moved in and lived in shots:

Our friends in Astoria did up their house, with a movie projected on a nearby building and everything! I guess we have to step up our game next year, now that we have a home to decorate:

Well it was a can of crazy here late last week, but somehow miraculously (with the help of grandparents) we managed to get kids in costumes and out to parties. Four parties in our ‘alley’ alone! By the way, the ‘alley’ is our back drive, filled with children and great neighbors, and described by others in the hood as the equivalent of moving ‘into Sesame Street’. You will hear a lot about it on the blog I’m sure. What a great, warm receptive group of neighbors we have. Ezra was a Dinobot and Zoe was one of the thousands of Elsas on the street… but I still think she was the prettiest. Who needs candy when all this other fun is going on?

Before school started – we enjoyed a leisurely pot luck and BBQ at the lake last weekend. It all ended with the kids sending paper lanterns up into the night sky – something that we tried to do at the beginning of the summer but it was just too windy. On this perfect night they finally took flight:

I am posting tonight and tomorrow morning in-between a flurry of graduations this week. Ezra has a graduation ceremony and show on Friday, and Zoe’s was earlier this week. When did this girl get so big? With her own birthday and graduation parties to go to .. I barely recognize this social little bunny –

I guess we know a lot of cute folks whose birthdays are happening this month … just some more gratuitous pix of birthday fun. I love this ‘photo booth wall’ and may have to copy this idea for E’s bday in August:

We were back here again – Z and E’s dad was the staff photographer for the event but regardless, this street fair had my kids involved from 10 a.m. all the way up to the close at 6 pm. The themes were space, robots and weather.. and we loved learning about all three!

this boy robot from Italy was amazing. Even his mouth and eyebrows moved to show frustration or happiness.
