Mario's 7th Birthday Party.

We celebrated Mario's birthday with a cool science party. Mario asked us to have a science party with cool experiments. I did my best and some of the experiments were a little sad :)
I honestly had everything ready except for the logo for Mario's birthday.
I work really well under pressure. Last night I put most of the stuff together with the help of Jared.

I made this cute birthday banner.  Some of the moms I invited were praising my craft skills. I told them, I hate crafts. I just do them because Mario likes them. 

Happy Birthday Mario!

Every Scientist had his/her own journal.

Sensory experiments. 

We made elephant foam. Jared explained everything so well.

and our take home experiments

At the end of the two hours, we were exhausted. Mario's favorite part was that he got to open many presents :)

After Mario's party we had the auction for Mario's school. It was the first time for us bidding on things and partying with other parents.
The food was excellent. There was so much wine ( we didn't drink)
Our prom picture ;)
Update: we got all these! so exciting.

We have been decorating our place and because we live in an apartment we have to get creative. I have become a craft mom :/ The boys love that kind of stuff even if I dislike doing crafts. At least I am spending time with them. 

I took Milo with me to celebrate a birthday from someone from church. Milo was so excited.

I am still wearing my overalls. I love them and Milo asked to get him a pair too. 
For FHE we went to the melt. The most expensive cheese sandwich ever. The boys loved the place. Jared and I were just thinking, well this is our first and last time. Everything is organic, gluten free and the drink taste like the real stuff. I guess you have peace of mind knowing what type of foods you are putting in your body.
Milo is working hard on his homeschool assignments and trying to not have accidents. He gets distracted and forgets to use the bathroom.
The boys love Stanford mall. We went to the American doll store. They were the only boys there and they loved the stair case. They told me that it looks like it belongs in a castle. Too bad there is not an American doll action figure for boys. They had fun playing with the stuffed animals.
This week I have a school auction to go to with Jared and also a surprise birthday party for a friend. The invitation says, cocktail attire please. How cool is that.
 I have a lot of dresses but I wanted a new one. I took the boys to Bloomingdales. It was heaven. The place looks really nice and everybody was kind of stuck up, even the employees which is funny because that is minimum wage job. The quality of the clothes is amazing and believe me, I know my fabrics. Too bad I am too poor for a $400 dress :(  
Oh well, there is always Macy's.
"Baby, you are on my mind." 
That is me sweet talking to the dress.

Our new obsession is this cute book series. We got them at the library. We read them in a day. The boys love them.
Mario's birthday party supplies are here. He insisted on having a mad scientist party. He wants to be a scientist for now. He wanted to be a cop last year and I showed him the show cops. Hahaha. He doesn't want to be a cop anymore.

Halloween. Part une

It seems that I update my blog every other day but there is so much to do here. Never a boring moment.
After the usual gym and grocery shopping, Milo and I bought some pumpkins to decorate. He picked them carefully.

My friend Anne Butler took me to a French restaurant to celebrate my late birthday. It was fun. I didn't take a picture of Anne because she wasn't wearing her makeup. 
After that we went to Stanford mall and Milo used the gift card grandma Hobbs sent him. He loves McDonalds.
We went to Pottery Barn with my friend Colleen and her adorable girls.
 Time to pick up Mario from school and get some ice cream.
It was super windy and cold today. 
After that we headed home and Mario did some homework and reading. We also decorated our place for Halloween.

Highlights of the day:
1. Jared's mom bought Jared a cool Christmas present. He is going to love his present.
2. My dad is in Boston this week and he sent me a few hundred dollars for me and the boys. Late birthday presents. He knows how much I love going out.
3. And Jared came home with GREAT news. Want to know? Call him.
