Welcome to Colorado!

Today Chloe and I had lunch with a childhood friend of mine, Manya, and her two kiddos, Celestia, 3, and Jack, 16 months. Manya and I grew up together in California, were in the same first grade class at Alamo Elementary, and graduated Vaca High the same year. We both danced for Vacaville Ballet Company, attended the same church, and our moms were and still are good friends. Manya is nearly 9 months pregnant with her third baby (bless her heart) and just as cute as can be! I'm so happy we are once again "neighbors" and hope to see a lot more of her in the upcoming months. Welcome to Colorado, Manya!

How WONDERFUL! I am going to call Vicki right now! I am sooooo excited sweet Manya and her darling family made it there. I know you've been anticipating this for some time. The picture is adorable. Three little darlings, two sweet mommies, and a little one on the way. It will be fun for Neil and Manya's husband to become friends too. Give them all my love, please!
Love love love,
Mama Jill

That's so cool that you guys got to hang out. I can't picture manya pergnant at all. Her tummy must be bigger than herself. Her daughter is such a little manya. and her son looks just like her husband. I wonder what the next one will look like.
