Kids - they will always be little to me

Another birthday is approaching and we are celebrating it two times this year. Once a week ago with the Grandparents and another time in the very near future for the offical day. Check out this cake - the Barbie Cake - Grandma spent a few hours on this one on a rainy day here in the mountains. I remeber this cake from 30+ years ago when my little sister used to always ask for it. Now my children are asking for it as their birthdays approach. Good thing Grandma keeps those cake pans and barbie dolls.

I know that our 3 girls will continue to grow but I am always going to be thinking they are little and worry about them. It is difficult to let them grow up but the joy of the success they achieve in life is just so fun to watch and experience. AND on the other hand the feeling of their disappointments or mistakes made is sometimes hard to watch and not pull your hair out about. AAA's - you will always be little in my eyes so please understand my tears of happiness, sadness, joy and frustration is just from the love that I have for all of you. Little A - Happy Birthday with LOTS & LOTS of love and big, sloppy, moutain man hugs.

We have 2 New Tessa Clogs Open Toe Sandals in stock now for the end of the summer and the fall months -

* High Heel 2 Strap Cerise Nubuck Sandal

* New Blue Jessica Sandal

The Blue leather on our Jessica is a beautiful full grain leather and a very deep dark blue. We have made a limited supply of these so if you are interested give us a call or order on line as soon as possible.

Thanks for reading and give all those little ones out there a big hug, life is way too short so give lots of love now.

Loyal Customers and our Blog

One of my best friends (and smartest), Steve H, has reminded me that it is good to stay current and up to date on our Clog Blog.
  • I know that you have the on-line store but if you can also have elements on your site that change (i.e. clog blog) thats the key for your loyal customers. They will keep coming back. You can even keep the changing elements not so much store bases as to news/activitity in Vail.

Steve - thanks for that reminder and you have been awarded the picture of the day. A little background about our friendship and photo. We have been friends for over 20 years first meeting at St. John's, then being room mates in 1988 & 89 and is the god father of our oldest daughter. We have stayed in touch over the years (Steve - thanks for being the driving force with your emails and calls) and usually get the families together once a year. This photo is from the boys night out celebrating our 20 year reunion up at SJU. Everytime I see it I break out laughing! This photo taken from behind the pine curtain will always remind us of SJU and the H1N1 epidemic of 09. Steve - thanks for the great memories and friendship - we hope to see the family again soon!

For those that read our blog - also a big thank you. I'll keep the camera handy and let you know about the happenings around our Happy Valey here in Colorado.
