Like the little lady's new hairstyle?? She had 30 clips in her hair today, all in neat little sections through her hair. She certainly is a trendsetter! Who knows maybe we'll be seeing all the runway models sporting this look come fashion week ;) Continue reading

They've been calling for potential severe thunderstorms all day. It's been super overcast and just generally icky out. The thunder started rumbling in the distance, the winds started picking up and the sky-well it just got DARK! I snuck out to take some pics of the clouds (as dark as... Continue reading

We needed to stop into Target this morning so I asked the little lady to please get dressed. This is how she came downstairs. Light up glasses, Rapunzel princess gown, and daughters in tow. She looked so darn cute how could I not let her go like this?? We turned... Continue reading

We had friends over this morning. The kids had.a.blast!!! But they are both exhausted from playing just a little *too* hard! Alex was asleep within minutes of them leaving. The little lady, well she fought it a bit. It took about 15 minutes but I knew once she sat down... Continue reading

Elizabeth has been helping me make end of the year gifts for her teachers. She has been doing so well with her writing (we're still working on the spacing ;)). We made a clipboard for her gymnastics teacher and Elizabeth wrote her a note that we mod podged to the... Continue reading

Today we celebrated Father's Day with a rare day off for Chris ;) We lounged in the morning and then after naps we headed up to Elizabeth for some hot dogs at Chris' request. After dinner we took a trip down memory lane for Chris and went off in search... Continue reading

After a year of dancing, prepping and practicing for it, the day is finally here! Recital day is a fantastically fun day but it is also an absolutely exhausting day! We have 2 shows today and Elizabeth is in 2 dances in each. Makeup, costume changes, on stage performances, backstage... Continue reading

Lazy day at home today to recoup from the craziness of the week and in preparation for the craziness of the weekend ahead. We lounged on the couch, watched movies, ate some (delicious) fruit and just got in some relaxation. Somedays the lazy day is *so* needed and today was... Continue reading

Today's the day!! Preschool Graduation! I cried through the entire ceremony (like the big sap I am) though luckily I managed to just shed tears rather than the sobs that I was afraid might happen ;) She did such a great job!! She sang her songs for us and gave... Continue reading

*sigh* it's a bittersweet day. Today was Elizabeth's last day of preschool and I can't believe that she has gotten so big already! Where did the time go?? I can vividly remember her first day at Maple Stream Road Preschool and today here we are at her last. I'm not... Continue reading

We are down a car this week since mine is in the shop getting the transmission fixed. We dropped Chris off at work this morning so I could have the car during the day. On our way to pick Chris back up this afternoon, Elizabeth was chatting my ear off.... Continue reading

Tonight we met up with Marco and Thais for some delish dinner at NanKing. The restaurant just happens to be across the street from Friendlys so we popped on over to visit Angie at work. It was the perfect (sweet) ending to a nice dinner. Alex surely enjoyed himself :)... Continue reading

Today is the big dance recital dress rehearsal! We got Elizabeth all dolled up and glittered. Then came the *best* part of the outfit, the big long (fake) ponytail ;) All dancers are required to wear their hair in a low ponytail for the recital. Well with her short haircut,... Continue reading

Today was Elizabeth's last day of soccer for the season. She had such a blast playing that we are doing it again come fall :) The girls played their last game in the rain. We lost, pretty badly, but Grey Storm still had a great time. Then we were off... Continue reading

It's the sweet small little moments like this that just make your heart melt. We had a surprise doctor visit for Elizabeth today (ear infection :( first one ever). While we were waiting for the Dr to come into the exam room both kids sat on the little step stool... Continue reading

Alex has taken to throwing food lately. He grabs fistfuls of food and flings it anywhere and everywhere saying "YUMMY!!!!!" the whole time, most likely because he starts throwing food and the dogs come out from nowhere to clean it up. He laughs and giggles and just enjoys the heck... Continue reading

Welcome to a "normal" day in the Socha house!!! I was loading the dishwasher listening to some music on my iTunes. First in comes the boy into the kitchen dancing along to the tunes. Then comes the girl (wearing her size 3 winter coat because she is cold, of course!)... Continue reading

Because, really, can you ever *really* have too many passers?????? Alex keeps a stash of pacifiers around the house and any time he sees one he has the compulsive need to switch out the old for the new. It's an all day long process that results in him using several... Continue reading

Every spring we get a little frog that hangs out near our front door. It's pretty usual to see the frog hanging out at night since the house lights bring LOTS of bugs to the area but today I noticed our little frog friend hanging out during the day. He... Continue reading

Annual end of the year Gymnastics show today!! Elizabeth did awesome!!! She has really done a great job this year. Hard to believe she is the same girl that used to be *so* very nervous on the balance beam. Now she can walk on it with her eyes closed! Great... Continue reading

We said goodbye to our house guests today. They came to us as these tiny little fuzzy caterpillars and they are leaving us as these beautiful butterflies. Elizabeth was SO excited because they climbed onto her hand before flying away :) They hung around the front yard for a while... Continue reading

Today was our turn to go into Elizabeth's classroom for the "Beyond the Classroom". It's a special day-someone's mom or dad (or both) comes in and talks to the class about a family tradition, a fun family activity....whatever. Then the parent gets to stay for the Shabbat service with the... Continue reading
