Eliza and the Sewanee Children’s Center are participating in the St. Jude Trike-a-Thon to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Not only is the Trike-a-thon an opportunity to give to an awesome charity, it’s also part of a campaign that teaches riding safety. You can sponsor her in any amount, no matter how small. […]
photo Originally uploaded by griffey Our annual trip to Rosemary Beach was a huge success. Eliza absolutely loves any body of water, so she was thrilled with the ocean and the swimming pool. We also loved getting treats at the Sugar Shak, meeting the Easter Bunny, doing the huge egg hunt, listening to music in […]
IMG_3510 Originally uploaded by griffey Eliza did an amazing job during her first dance recital. Her first (but undoubtedly not the last) time on a big stage. She was fearless. In fact, she loved the whole experience. And she looked adorable as a caterpillar dancing to “Under the Toadstools” from Alice in Wonderland, which is […]
IMG_3366 Originally uploaded by griffey It has been teasing us, coming in and out, but Eliza is loving the idea that Spring is (sort of) here. If it’s even close to 70 degrees, she’s begging to wear a sun dress. She’s excited about all the fun things coming up in April: her first dance recital, […]

But in the tradition of this blog, I wanted to give a quick overview of what Miss Eliza (“Princess Eliza,” if you please) is […]
IMG_2612, originally uploaded by griffey. Eliza and Parker are now 3! It’s a cliche, but it doesn’t really seem possible. Eliza is growing into a really amazing girl…happy, vibrant, and just smart as hell. Happy Birthday, my awesome girl.
IMG_1851 Originally uploaded by griffey What Eliza wants for Christmas is a Calico Critters house full of furniture and “all different kinds of critters.” And in her stocking? “Candy and lollipops.” She loves to be the center of attention, and getting her photo taken with Santa at the Chattanooga Choo Choo was no exception. He […]
IMG_0606, originally uploaded by griffey. Every morning, I go into Eliza’s room and say “Did I hear a monkey in here?” Lately her response has been “I’m not a monkey, I’m princess Eliza!” Not sure how I got myself a Princess, but there you go.
Best. Pic. Ever., originally uploaded by griffey. Well, this past week Eliza got to live out a huge number of little girl fantasies, as we spent the week at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. This is one pic of the dozen or so Disney characters she got to meet, not even counting the several […]
