.......so that the kids can play dress up and go around the house and completely ruin them!!!
And believe me, he feels pretty good about himslef when he wears my shoes. For some reason completely unknown to me, these are his favorites!! At least the child has a pretty good taste.

Trust me when I say that today that bump (or should we call it horn given the size!) on his head, is way smaller than yesterday right after the unfortunate accident. Lucas is going through a period of frequent accidents to say the least. His forehead has acquired this funky look after one of his many attempts at running without looking. Yesterday morning during what we thought was going to be a peaceful Sunday morning, he stumbled into the "roomba" (our robot vacuum cleaner) and banged the head against the edge of the bathroom door.
Big drama for a little while, but today everything seems to be forgotten!
ON TO THE NEXT CRISIS!

But it is OK, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I can be patient (that may not apply to every member of our family).
I am looking forward to having more space in the house, to get rid of boxes that right now are everywhere in the house, and to restock my kitchen with nice supplies, dishes and linens.
I am also looking forward to have the library completed (we bought a nice bookcase that should arrive any day now) and I have chosen the colors for the walls, so as soon as the dining table gets out of the room we can start creating our new library.
I better go, the kids are asleep and if I am lucky I may have one hour to do something I like

The past two days it has been very warm in the Bay Area, with temperatures in the 90s. Personally I love it! It reminds me of the summer that is to come and the time we will spend in Italy. Furthermore, I love the shed the winter layers, going around with a shirt and a pair of shorts is how I could spend every day of my life and be happy. My kids seem to embrace the last feeling very literally, they love to shed ALL the layers of clothing possible, down to their underwear (or diaper, as in the case above). This was Lucas last night.......... totally loving it!!

Well, the numbers on the candles kind of give it away anyway!
Greg surprised me with calling Grandma and Grandpa down for a baby sitting impromptu (thank you guys!) and the two of us went out for dinner (by the way, if anyone wants to know a great restaurant in Mountain View, let me suggest XHAN, great food, really wonderful flavors!!) and after we got back we had cake (cheesecake, my favorite!) and opened the presents all together.The house is still a huge mess and the celebration had to take place on top of a bookcase, but those are details!
Also, I did not get to blow out the candles once,not even after they were lid three times (I believe Ryan was the one who got to them first each time), but when one is turning 43, it doesn't really matter, does it??
It was a good day.
