Happy Birthday & Happy NYE!


Today is Mr. Mustard's birthday and it is also (in case you've been living under a rock), New Year's Eve. It is also the last weekend of Mr. Mustard's supposed month long vacation, which I am laughing about because it really wasn't a vacation at all!

This month he worked for a week in Santa Barbara finishing that documentary, then a week on Skating With The Stars, and then for the past two weeks has been working long hours with Paula Abdul on her new dance show. So, um...yea. But having work in this industry is good, so I am not complaining in the slightest.


Anyhoo, I am hoping that Mr. Mustard gets the day off today because it is both his birthday and New Year's Eve. If he has to work, we'll just postpone til a later time, no biggie. But we are all missing him, so I hope he gets the day off so we can have fun together!


The weather here has been kinda cold and dreary sprinkled with fleeting moments of gorgeous weather. We have been doing a lot of indoors stuff, and I have been trying to keep Ginger and Paprika from literally climbing the walls.

This glow in the dark drawing set was a Christmas present from Santa. Paprika has been pretty scared of the dark lately, so I guess Santa thought maybe it would help her get over that fear. So far it's working (and it's a really cool toy!)


We've also been relying on the standard Princess role-play stuff. For some reason, Paprika keeps casting me as either The Pirate or The Wicked Witch. No leading lady roles for me! Oh well. There are worse things.


When we get so bored that we just can't stand it anymore, we start making up games. One night when I was doing laundry, Ginger started begging to go inside the washer. I mean, she wanted IN there and there was no reasoning with her. So, I let her stand inside and she was pleased as punch.


The the next thing you know, Paprika had to go in and all of a sudden, it was a party!


I don't know how they can make standing inside the washing machine an event, but they did! Didn't you know, standing in the washing machine is the thing to do!


Happy New Year's Eve! I would say that we are going to stay home tonight and watch the Ball drop on TV, but we don't have a TV, so that's out! Whatever we do, we will make it is the start of a new decade, after all.

Sooo cute! I especially love the last picture.(heart melter)

Today is my daughter in law Eve's birthday and she is from Santa Barbara too! I think she is friends with Mr. Mustard. Makes since because I found your blog through her.

Looking forward to a new year of firsts and I want you to know how much I enjoy you sharing your girls. Sweetie pie Grandson #3 arrives the end of March. The other 2 grandsons are 2 1/2 and 10 months. Next year is gonna be great fun. Grandparenting is off the charts fabulous, it's important to keep a twinkle in your wrinkle, and with my sweet darling boys it's easy to do.
Happiness hugs for a fabulous 2011.
