Kailey's birthday party

Kailey's birthday party with her friends was Saturday night. We had 9 girls and Kailey (=10 girls!). Yikes! We had friends from the 'hood (neighborhood), from new preschool, old preschool, and soccer. I came up with this idea to make pillowcases for the girls to decorate. It was easy and it was hard. The easy part was sewing three basic seams. The hard part was figuring out the fabric, the markers that we could use, and the blanket silky that I thought would look great on the end! I'll start the party pics with some of the pillowcases being decorated. I think I have heard that most of the girls went home (oh yeah, they came in their PJ's) put their pillowcases on and crashed!

We also did a chocolate fountain, which Jason was in charge of, and pedicures...Thanks to the help of Katie and Renee! After presents and cake, we ended the night with some Phineas and Ferb, one of Kailey's favorite cartoons.

Kailey's weekend with Ted/Ted's brother

Kailey's preschool class has a class mascot, Ted. I get a little confused on some of the finer points, but Ted's brother gets to visit the kids and go on "adventures" with them. Then the kids have to "write" in the journal what the adventures were. So Kailey's turn was this weekend, and here are our pictures with Ted's brother. She was pretty cute Friday before we left for school as she was realizing it was going to be her turn to bring Ted's brother home. She told us, "I get to sleep with Ted's brother tonight!"

Falls Park

We went to Falls Park before going to the Camp-a-ree. We had a great time enjoying the beautiful fountains. Enjoy our pictures!

First Day of School

Kailey was so excited for her first day of preschool! I'm not sure what was more exciting for her: To have lunch AT School or her new class! She goes M,W, F 9:15-1:15.
Sorry for my delay in getting the pictures posted.

Omaha Zoo

We stopped on the way home for a brief Zoo visit. We have special friends that we would go to the Zoo with, and rarely without them. It was fun to reconnect at the zoo and the kids to see each other.


Sunday we were part of the 45th Annual Camp-a-ree. Now that I start to type about it, I'm thinking I need to revisit the true history of the beginning of the Camp-a-ree. So Mom's family has been getting together for 45 years now. I remember the days of we just meet. Maybe, we should move the Camp-a-ree over to my idea of camping, A HITLON! We could call it a CampHilton-a-Ree. We had a good time seeing Mom's brothers, sister, and their families. Its good to have a reason to all come together.

Articles | My Essentials: Rolanda Peterson, 35 | Ink

This is an article about my friend Rolanda. We met last year and found we had several things in common. Since then, we have had some really good laughs, and I'm proud to call her a friend.
