It was bound to happen... Anna has her own Snow White costume, courtesy of Holly, little Tasha's mom. And she sure received a lot of sweet comments during our outing in public. Who needs an excuse to get all decked out, not Anna!

After the recent rains we were greeted by a rainbow, can you see it faintly in the background? And it looks like Anna is warming up to her brother, I like the protective hand contact she's giving him.

Anna turned 4 yesterday, and to celebrate, we went to the "Princess breakfast" at Disneyland. The Disney princesses meet and greet the guests as they dine. Anna loves Snow White right now and she is dressed in her rendition of Snow White, a blue Clifford shirt topping a yellow dress, with pink headband. Snow White was super sweet and put nervous Anna at ease with her kindness.

This is little Sam, born New Year's Day. In this photo we look nothing alike, other than the size of our noses.

4. Write down 5 songs that mean a lot to you.

These are all on my "Sam" playlist on my IPod

- Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra - makes me think of when I went to NY with Mari
- My Song by Ewan MacGregor - love him and his voice
- End Title (You Are Karen) Out Of Africa Theme - makes me cry every time I hear it, makes me think of the innocence of
my two kids
- Here Comes the Sun by Nina Simone - makes me realize everything is going to be alright
- Prelude -Bach Cello Suite 1 in G Major played by Yo Yo Ma - I play this for my students over and over when I need
background music

Give me time for this one!
