An open letter...

Dear "Anonymous": (commentor #17 from previous post)

As always, I am so thrilled that anyone takes the time to read our blog. So glad you took the time to check in!

Though your comment was short and to the point...I could sense the underlying frustration that the posts at Livin' La Vida Lia have slowed down tremendously. I, too, am a bit sad that I have not been keeping up with the many fabulous(!) happenings in our little world. I hope someday...maybe this summer...to catch up with it all and continue to record our day to day life as a keepsake for Lia.

Rest assured that we are well and having lots of fun! We have attended birthday parties galore, planned a trip to Disney for the fall, completed continuing education hours (me, not Lia!), done a great deal of organizing and furniture buying in preparation for company, played outside as much as possible, attended dance class (Lia, not me!)...and in our spare time...slept! We are happy and enjoying life!

So...only for you, anonymous commentor # 17 (because honestly, I am on the lamb right now from Jim...who thinks I am cleaning out a buffet drawer that holds 5 years worth of stuff)...I thought I would share the few photos Lia allowed me to take this week!!

And so...dear Anonymous...I hope all is well with you too...Lia misses you and her cousins terribly!! :-) She would like to know when you are opening the pool...and if you have that great snack cupboard filled with those organic dried fruit roll up things that she so adores(!?!)...

Peace out sista!! :-)

Happy Easter Kate, Jim, and Lia! I am getting the hits from my family too that I am not posting on my blog as much. I am taking a much needed break from blogging. Life has been too busy.

Love the "birthday parties galore" line. I made have to use that one. I wanted to post about the 5 birthday parties we attended in the last 5 weeks.

p.s. my word verification is "traggic"...like it is traggic we are not blogging as much! I crack myself up!

I've missed seeing you, but totally understand the busy thing.

Glad all is well. I love the last picture of Lia turning away and I love the skirt she's wearing!

Enjoy your fun, busy spring!

HEY!! How did you know that was me? Perhaps I need a new name like "Unknown" or "Mystery Guest". Well, tell my little buddy the pool will be open within the next 2 weeks, and Daphne is waiting to swim with her. We will be fully stocked on fruit rollups!!

And don't worry.... I'll still be here to stir things up once in a while.....

beautiful pics.

Casey said...

Happy Easter!! Stunning photos!! I LOVE that last one!!

Jboo said...

Great photos of your beautiful Lia! Am glad she is still cooperating for photos as Miss M does not like the camera much lately and it's a struggle to even get a picture and then it's often a very forced smile (grimace)! Hope you're having a great week!

I have been super behind on reading my bloggie friends blogs. Love the pictures. I am glad your life is filled with joy and love and the hustle and bustle of being a Mommy!

Chris and Deb said...

LOL! Love these sweet Spring photos of Lia...she is so adorble...

I completely understand fewer posts....we have been rather M.I.A. ourselves.....just too busy living life at the moment! Hope you are having a great week!

Rebecca said...

OK that is just FUNNY. At first I thought it was some weird person who stalks your blog... by the end I had figured out it was somebody you know! Hilarious!!!

I am glad to hear you're doing well and enjoying life, staying busy, and still managing to snap some great pics of Miss Lia! They are FABULOUS as always! I love the colors.

Hugs,
R

I also am not blogging near as much as I used to or as much as I would like...just not enough hours in the day.

You will have to let me know when you are going to Disney. We are going in September and can't wait. : )
