It is the most beautiful weather today. Skies are blue and its 60 degrees out. We had an afternoon snack of beignets on the balcony. We try new a new treat everyday but somehow the beignets have been in heavy rotation.

[The striped shirt is from American Apparel who sent me a few kids clothing items right before we left. I actually buy a lot of AA for my kids. I love the quality and that they are cool.]

Moses is 3!

Moses turned three yesterday! Between Paul finishing up the Commission Project and Roman’s surgery this isn’t the year for a fancy party. But I did manage to throw something together last minute. We had a few friends over, ordered some Delfina’s Pizza and Kara’s Cupcakes. Then I stopped by the toy store for presents and the party store for balloons and confetti cannons. I decorated his presents and the wall with Japanese tape. It was perfect.

Watercolor Paper Chain Garland

I had the watercolors out this week so Moses was painting on some strips of leftover printmaking paper. It was so pretty I thought it would make a nice paper garland.

It was a great little project to do with kids. The main thing is to paint on both sides of the paper before you cut. And I’m not sure if you can tell the scale here but I think the teeny tiny links are the cutest (even though they take a little longer.)

Moses goes to Louie’s

A few weeks ago I took Moses to get his first real hair cut. (I don’t count the infamous head shaving incident.) I asked Aubrey Trinnaman, my good friend (and photographer) to come and document it. We went to Louie’s in the Castro which is a classic old barber shop. It makes me so happy to have good photos from these little life events. Aubrey also took photos of Roman’s Birth and even my wedding photos. Email her if you need a photographer for milestones and stories of any sort.

I’m a Lumberjack and I’m Ok!

Halloween is so fun with little kids. This is the first year Moses has really understood what is going on. We dressed up on Saturday but by Sunday I was losing the Halloween spirit and just dressed normal. (Roman was asleep during pictures but I’m totally dressing him up again today to get photos!)
