I have been away from the blog for so long! I've been reading a lot of other blogs, which is taking up the time I would usually be writing. Plus I've been unhappy with the camera and not excited to post pictures, etc.
Anyway, lots of doings around here. Penelope turned one. We had a pool party in our back alley (who says you can't hav?e it all in the city... As the picture shows, it was freaking hot! But both sets of grandparents came down which caused us all to realize that they hadn't seen each other since our wedding!

Diego started his new school--Monetssori, which he seems to really enjoy. When I ask him what he did at school, he says stuff like "I did pouring work today" and then he will describe in great detail (first you get the tray and carry it very carefully with 2 hands) what pouring work entails. I'm really glad he's there rather than at the Waldorf school, which was the other option that tempted me a lot.

More news: I turned 30. We spent a week out at the beach.

I've been sewing more. I made each kid a pair of flannel lined corduroys and have a pair of corduroy overalls in process for Penelope. I've been finishing up some old quilt tops and have been contemplating buying more fabric (gasp) for bumpers and a quilt for Penelop's cage (I mean crib) where she now sleeps at least part of every night (see http://www.reprodepot.com/whmtr.html) to understand why I'm so obsessed.

I'll be in NYC for Sarah and David's marriage celebration party (not sure what else to call it for a post-elopement celebration) and am hoping to have a chance to get down to Purl in Soho to visit with some of the fabrics in person.

I'll post some pictures of the stuff I've been working on when we get our new camera. In the meantime, some pix of the kids to keep folks happy...

Wow- Penelope looks like Al and Diego (but I don't think Diego looks like Al...)! Can't wait to see you guys soon! -Nikki
