Earlier this year I told my mom she should do something special for her birthday because it was 12-13-14. She called me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I would want to come out for her birthday and I said YES!
I had to make some arrangements, and my dad said he could come to my house and fill in at home while Ben is at work.
My mom did a get together with her friends to celebrate her birthday, and it was so much fun. We had a baked potato bar and a German chocolate cake (her favorite).
Of course if me and my mom are together there is going to be sewing! Carma got introduced to my mom's sewing studio.
Carma got some quality time with Grandma and Grandpa with no other kids to compete with.
Carma got introduced to Grandpa Tom's train room.
We made it down to the city for an afternoon. This is the view from my step dad's office. You can see the freedom towers, the river and the Statue of Liberty.
We also made it over to Rockefeller center to see the Christmas tree.
Carma rolled over to her tummy for the first time.

And I learned how much I LOVE you FaceTime. It was so fun to stay connected with my kids at home. Zephyr would call me on face time multiple times a day, and I loved it, except when he showed me my dad's bruised toe!
Zephyr in this picture is showing off to me that he is eating in the front room.
Autumn told me it was fun to have my dad there, because it was like having a substitute teacher and you can get away with more.
Now me and Carma are on our last leg of the flight home. Can't wait to be home!
