I am sure you know by now that the four of us love Kids Night Out at Alena's school. Our activity in the afternoon of the day of "Kids Night Out" is to make the pizza. I generally make the dough alone or with help of the girlies, and the girls put all the toppings on the pizza. Last Friday I took pictures (yeah we have our camera back...) of the girls making the pizza :) - Pepperoni and Asparagus it was very, very delicious :)))

Alena first started Preschool when she was 3. My cute little pumpkin and I looked around in the school wow all those huge kids. Yes, I kid you not I registered all kids older than 3 or 4 as huge kids. Those huge kids certainly were not cute, only the littles. I was all consumed by melancholy realizing that soon my cute tiny little pumpkin would be one of those huge kids. Oh, what would I do??? Now fast forward to 2010. Alena is now in Kindergarten at the same school. The Kindergartener's are the oldest children attending the school. Oh, and how cute they are. Every single one of them and there are also the little kids. Even Mia Rosie is no longer a "little". I am so excited that Alena is now a big kid. She is learning to read and write. We can have great conversation, we talk about books, animals, nature....oh all the wonderful things. It is so exciting to see her as well as Mia Rosie grow, and see how they develop into these wonderful individuals. All the previous years just weave into this fantastic tapestry...now if I could only figure out how to add music to this post because surely I would be playing "Tapestry" by Carole King...Yes, I am not kidding - I totally would and I love Carole King :) - There is one side note I would like to make...the thought of Galactosemia, or metabolic disorder never crosses my mind. There is no difference between our children, and somebody else's children...
I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day.

I have to say that this really shook me up. It just takes a split second for something to happen. I am still a bit shaken-up. Thankfully Alena is all better. I got her early from school today and all she wanted to do was get a movie. So you know what she picked at Movie Madness? "Princess and the Frogs" and a box of Junior Mints :) The people at Movie Madness were so nice. Alena told them what happend and they gave her the box of Junior Mints to feel better. Isn't that sweet?!
Alright here is to getting better...we have to run to pick-up Mia Rosie from school :)

mornings. Not so much this morning as I had a doc appointment
scheduled for myself. Mia Rose was so good! She read her books,
played with toys...quite amazing :) In any case, I had originally
planned to take her to the Wednesday Market after the appointment but
guess what? It rained...with not enough time left to go to OMSI I
asked her what she wanted to do. "pizza" was her answer so here we are
at Hotlips Pizza on Hawthorne. Both of us had a delicious slice of
fresh yummy pizza. Yes, you read correct they also had a slice for my
little girl. Hotlips actually has vegan foccacia every day. Today's
selection was cilantro pesto, potatoes, olives, onion, and roasted
garlic. Yum! Mia Rise loved it, topped it with nutritional yeast and
ate the entire (!) slice. Ok - I admit to having had a couple of bites
but no more.
Hotlips had several locations here in Pdx. Check it out at www.hotlipspizza.com
Have a great day!
