London and her BFFs at NJPAC… the Best Birthday Party Ever!

By: Roxy on 02/8/09 @ 9:03 pm

London described it as “the best birthday party ever.” Maddie just loved having our own private balcony for ten, looking out over the crowd. Rex said, “Weird… but wonderful.” One of the other moms kept looking for Eloise from the Plaza Hotel… she didn’t find that naughty little six-year-old, but enjoyed many other surprises. I [...]

Jellicles do and jellicles would
Jellicles would and [...]
