So, I just returned from Alpha Phi Convention in Arizona, and, while I was gone, Elizabeth had a fabulous time with Daddy, Grammy, and Pop-Pop!

Since I took the camera with me, I don't have pictures to post of Elizabeth, so I am posting some pics taken at Convention instead!

Here I am with my fabulous roommate, Laura, at the Red Dress Gala!

As you can see, we were all smiles...but that is before we spotted the giant Texas-sized cockroach crawling all over my dessert plate! EEK!

Here are some of the fabulous ELCs who will be traveling for Alpha Phi this year! Left to right (from memory!): Monica, Emily, Becca, Megan, and Kat! Whoohoo! Not pictured are the two Ashleys, Sarah Beth, Sam, and the incredible Courtney McCallum!

And finally, there are too many photos to choose I will just add one more. Here is a picture of me with our fearless leader, Laura M-S...AKA "the big cheese"!

"Did you have fun?"..."Did you play with toys?"...These are just a couple of Elizabeth's favorite questions to ask! (I guess we've asked these questions of her so many times that she now asks us this when she is trying to tell us that she had fun and played with toys!)

At any rate, she loves having fun and playing with her toys in the back room! Especially when the fun includes pulling all of her toys out of the toy box and climbing inside it!

And Elizabeth was happy to be there to share in the occasion!

Here she is with her Auntie Sammy!

And Daddy, too!

And "Happy J" the after graduation soiree! Whoohoo!

Curious Monkeys and Big Yellow Hats

Hmmmm...something about this monkey looks very familiar! ;-)

Elizabeth loves "Daddy's hat"...and I know you do, too!

Hey...don't be can pick one up for yourself on Santee Alley in Downtown LA for just $5! ("For you, pretty lady?...$4.99!")

Okay, Okay...I'm UPDATING!

Some of you have been hinting in subtle (and not-so-subtle) ways that I have been neglecting Elizabeth's blog. So I am vowing to post a little more regularly--at least for the next week or so! haha!

Here is Elizabeth at Daddy's last rugby game (about a month ago). She is completely content to run around the field pointing at the planes!

(As luck would have it, the rugby pitch is in the flight landing path for Santa Monica Airport!...and despite the fact that she just LOVES her Daddy, he can't compete with THAT!)

Coffee Beaner

It's official...Elizabeth is helping to enable Mommy in her Coffee Bean habit!

Here she is enjoying a cup of whipped cream at the Coffee Bean in Playa Vista! "A cup of whipped cream?!?!" you ask...

Well, you didn't think I was gonna give her COFFEE, did you?!

Yeah...this is what I like to call uber-responsible parenting! ;-)

Need any tips? just give me a call! haha!
