Kasey went to Francesca's Pony Party, where Brighty and Teacup were the special guests.
The kids put on cowgirl hats and had a blast riding the ponies.

Our little cowgirl, KC, wore her cowgirl Jessie shirt just for the occasion.

Ride 'em, cowgirl!

Kasey would like to bring one home as a pet.

Even Madison got to ride a pony!
Madison had to ride Brighty since Teacup was too small for an almost 13-year old.

Madison's head was way too big for a pink cowgirl hat though.

The ponies and the kids had a GREAT time!

We are the Champions!

Madison's basketball team - the Huskies - won the Championship Game!
They are the CHAMPIONS!!!

Congratulations to the girls who had an amazing 11-1 season!

Thanks to Coach Ray for bringing the girls to a winning season!

First Place Champions!!!

Gina, Sammy, Morgan, Madison, Megan, Brigitte, and Baylee



They moved on to win the All-Star Game as well!

You win some - you lose some...

Well, we finally recovered from the Steelers loss to the Packers.
There was so much excitement at our house that day...

There is always next year...

Kasey Fun

Kasey is our "little bit of fun" wherever we go!

Running errands with the Goo.

Kasey showing off her clean teeth at her last dentist visit!
Also a fun time for her.
(Notice the Steelers jersey - the day after the big win!)

Madison texted me from upstairs saying "Look what I found in my bed..."
Apparently Kasey wanted to play with someone and had to wake her big sister up.

2010 Fun

Here is a look back at some of the fun of 2010...

Of course - one of the biggest events of 2010 was Allison and her role as Small Alice in Alice in Wonderland, Jr.
Allison loved being in the show. This was the first song in the opening scene.

Here she is in full costume...

There was always fun to be found!

Bob and our friend, Tom.
No comment. (Love the wig though!)

Madison, a Big Inflatable Monkey, & Carlye

There were several trips to visit this giant mouse!
(We even dragged Jen to see him when she visited this summer.)

Madison attended several bat mitzvahs and bar mitzvahs this year. She had a blast at these celebrations and now wants to convert so that she can have a huge party!

KC, Daddy, & Madison before her friend's bar mitzvah.

Party Time!
Madison's friend, Lilly, had a great 12th birthday party!
The limo arrived to pick up all of the girls...
Must have been Bieber Mania

KC & Lilly chilling in the limo.

Central Park is always fun - especially when the visit is for a great cause!
Allison, Katie, Madison, Simon, & KC

The ladies and I enjoyed a weekend in Cape May! It was a great way to end the summer and gear up for the school year. (And we left the kiddies at home with the dads!)

Renee, Joelle, Gloria, Kim, Me, & Doreen

Winter came quickly.

We actually got some snow. The kids loved playing in it!

(I actually got the WARMEST boots ever this winter - which I highly recommend. They are Sorel's Joan of Arctic boots, and every woman should own a pair for the winter!)
Simon, Allison, KC, and Madison

KC tubing away.

Allison is always prepared for the snow.

Madison enjoyed the Harlem Wizards Game!

Christmas was a BLAST! Santa was very good to the kids!

Notice the Justin Bieber Doll

Look who Simon and Allison found outside!

Daddy and Kasey ready for the New Year!

Have a Happy New Year!

Simon loved Rita and Clark!
The boys had a great time and were so happy to visit Uncle Jeff, Aunt Diane, and Cousins Theo & Vincent!
