My Mom Was Here!


My mom went to a painting workshop in Laguna Beach, and afterwards came to stay with us from Sunday until yesterday (Thursday). It was great having her here!

The first day she was here, we went to the beach. It was a gorgeous day for it (the weather has been picture-perfect all week)...and we had a great time while Paprika ran around and made friends.


Paprika made friends with a little girl her age and her older sister. They were BFFs for a few hours until the sun went down and it was time to head home!


Anyhoo, we mostly hung out at home while my mom was here. We spent a lot of time in the backyard lounging and soaking up the sunshine.


My mom stayed home with Ginger when Paprika had her ballet class (I found a class that actually has other students- she is loving it!). Ginger isn't napping at all (except in the Ergo), so it was nice to get out and have that special time with Paprika.

Paprika is really into ballet lately. She loves everything ballet and everything having to do with the color purple. Such a girly-girl!


So, when my mom was here, we spent lots of quality time together, and just enjoyed eachother's company. The girls kept us really busy, of course!


On Tuesday night, a film Mr. Mustard edited had its Los Angeles Premiere, and we went to it while my mom watched the girls. It was a great night and I am super proud of Mr. Mustard and everyone involved with the film. It was so fun to get dressed up and be at a Hollywood thing- I don't get to do it as often as I used to! Anyway, Mr. Mustard's Premiere deserves another post of its own. More later when I can catch a few moments to blog!

So nice when Mom gets to spend time with us and their grandchildren, isn't it? So glad you experienced that recently.

My daughter took ballet for years. I'm going to have to repost some of her recital pictures soon. May is recital season and we miss it!! She expecting my first grandchild in June. A little girl whose nursery theme is ballet!

Happy Mother's Day!

Your mom is lovely; what incredible genetics are in your family, lucky girl! The ballet pic of Paprika is SO precious. And a huge congrats to Mr. Mustard on the documentary and DWTS--what an accomplished hubby you have.
