    Great chapbook! Looks like a fun night.

  2. Rachael Levy says:

    Thanks! We had a great time.

  3. I'm sorry I missed it! I'm feeling much better today. When Eli woke up this morning he said, "Mama, I want to get some lemonaide and make a party like Ivan's house!"

  4. Rachael Levy says:

    Eli and Ivan were quite a pair, losing the frosted tops of their cupcakes within five minutes of each other. They handled it with aplomb; one more reason to go back to the dessert table for seconds!

    Glad you're feeling better. Just don't overdue it.
