I was asked to be the Featured Educator in The Happiest Baby Educator Newsletter! I thought it was an awesome opportunity! I am not sure if you will be able to read this well, it was hard to take good sized screen shots that would look good here!


I was also asked to go to an American Baby Magazine photo shoot this week, where they needed someone to ensure things were being done correctly for the magazine. I LOVE NYC so I jumped at the chance! (Never driven there alone, this should be fun!) I can't wait to go this week. Of course, this means LEAVING by 5:30 am. Let's hope it is at least a nice day to drive!

Recall 5/4/11
GMA Accessories Inc., of New York, NY, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), have recalled their beaded curtains. The beaded curtains are prone to entanglement. When an adult or child plays with or runs through the beaded curtains, the risks of entanglement and strangulation are posed.
These beaded curtains were sold at Justice stores nationwide and online at shopjustice.com from August 2010 through March 2011 for approximately $20.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled curtains and return them to any Justice store for a full refund.

We had a great time at the Easter Family Brunch at the Turning Stone Casino. This is hosted every year (used to be at the Calvary Club but the family got too big!) by Chris's Aunt Sandy and Uncle John. We always enjoy seeing family that we never get to see, except for special events.

They had a few different buffets, a chocolate fountain, and tons of great things to eat. They also had a face painter and balloon clown.

So here are a couple pictures!

The kids in the pics are Nick (11), Evan (22m), Patrick(5), Wyatt(4), Alexandria(3), Erin(8 ), Michele(8 ), Kelsey(10) and Zack(1). Smile 9 out of 16 cousins Smile The ones not there, are Katie(7), Audry(5), Joseph(1), Kline(10), Ben(8 ), Matt (7)and Alex(4). The kids always love getting together. The last time they saw each other was September!
