Hawaiian Clothing

From Stacie Manning

I am looking for any Hawaiian Clothing (boys & girls). We used to have grass skirts but just recently gave them away out of state. I would be using them for my daughters class party. They are third graders and would be used for a game. If any of you have dress up and wouldn't mind letting me borrow them, that would be awesome!! The party is on Thursday, thanks!!

What's Cooking at Daybreak

This weekend is Daybreaks biggest event of the year! Come to the new Brookside Model Homes in North Shore for free cooking demonstrations. There will also be food vendors from local restaurants in the street. There will also be live music at a concert on the beach and cookie decorating for kids. You don't need to be a resident to enjoy this event. Friends and Families welcome!!

I'm always curious on what they are doing with those new model homes. Now we can find out. Residents only can beat the crowd on Friday night and walk through the new homes. from 6-8pm

Do you know a resident who can BBQ, cook or bake better than the rest? Is that person you? Daybreak is looking for people to teach classes in the new model home kitchens in the Daybreak Cooking Series June 29th-July 2nd.

Sitter needed

Hey everyone,
Jennifer Wood needs to find a sitter (possibly a young women) to watch her 4 year old boy for about 4 hours on Fridays. She works and her husband is trying to get his dissertation done so she could use some help. Does anyone know of anyone who might be able to do it?? You can leave a comment or email her at:

Also, this is probably a good time to ask for everyone to know. Who are the good babysitters around?? Anyone's daughter, granddaughter or neighbor interested in babysitting??

Playgroup Friday 6/18

From Mary Lampros:

Hi there everyone,
Looks like this crazy weather should clear up by Friday and be nice and warmish again. Why don't we do a retry on Wheeler Farm? If anyone feels passionately about the time (I'd love to accommodate those who have kindergartners if it's at all possible), let me know...otherwise, let's meet at 10:30 by the geese. I don't remember the address offhand so just Google Wheeler Farm for directions. Should be free and you can do a tractor ride for money if you wish. Bring a lunch if you want, and maybe bread for the geese! Hope to see you there!

Hey everybody, something has come up, and I apologize that I won't be able to make it to Wheeler Farm tomorrow. I could meet anyone who wants to at the park on Navarro and DeGray tomorrow at 10. If you were planning on going to Wheeler Farm, please still go...I'm sure y'all will have fun. Sorry about the last minute change.

Girls Scouts in Daybreak

From Kristin Brandt:
For those of you who might be interested in Girl Scouts for your daughter(s), there is going to be a parents informational/registration meeting next Wed. the 16th from 6:30 to 7:30 at the DCC. If you have any interest at all, come and ask all your questions. Girl scouts is a great program! No uniforms are required, cookie selling is optional (although you can ask Karin about the year that she sold enough cookies for a trip to Disneyland), and it's very low cost because it's volunteer run. Girls of all ages beginning with Kindergartners can join. AND, Karin Brooks and I are willing to serve as leaders in our neighborhood. We are so excited to get this going in our neighborhood! It would help me if anyone interested would also email me at so that I can tell the Girl Scout rep. how much interest we have in our part of the neighborhood. Thanks!

Be healthy!!

From Kira Cook:
Notes from last nights enrichment

Positive attitudes like Jessica:
Vitamins in foods

Preservatives to try to avoid: you can google these and find out what
harm they really have
Sulfur is used to keep dried fruit fresh
Formaldehyde to disinfect frozen vegetables. The formaldehyde allows
the vegetables to retain their bright colors.
Arsenic (that is the chemical name) has been found in frozen chicken
and in the feed of most non- organic chickens.
Carboxymethylcellulose is found in some ice creams to stabilize shelf
life and thicken the product.
Phenylalanine found in pretty much ALL chewing gum.

Find out where you really stand:
1. Go to assess your food intake
2. Fill out a profile (4 minutes of your time)
3. Enter in the general food items that you ate that day. Be as
specific as you can with the choices they give you.
4. After completing the list of the foods you ate that day, go to
select quantity
5. Then hit save and analyze
6. See your "DG comparison" (you'll get happy or sad faces here)
7. Then go back and look for "calculate nutrition intakes from food"
(they'll tell you where you are too high or too low concerning what
you are eating)

Me and some other girls start watching it at 9, so we can put the kids to bed first and then fast forward through the commercials. Come over and enjoy some yummy junk food and hilarious commentary.

Matilda Jane Trunk Show

From Kristin Brandt:

I am hosting a Matilda Jane trunk show at my house on Tuesday, June 15th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Matilda Jane is mostly little girl clothes sized from 12 months to 12 years, although they now have some items for moms as well now. These clothes are so super cute. I can't say enough about them. I think they are cuter than most of the stuff I see on Etsy and in boutiques. Love, love, love these clothes. Girly, fun and comfortable. Check out this link to some pictures taken by Utah photographer Skye Johansen using Matilda Jane clothes: There is also a Matilda Jane website ( ), where I got the following photos.

At this time the Matilda Jane clothes can only be bought through a trunk show, so this is the perfect time to come and see the clothes in person and find out if they are something you are interested in OR you can just come and hang out with friends and have some refreshments. :) Everyone is invited. In fact, if you have friends or family that would be interested in these clothes, please invite them! I'm trying to spread the word. No pressure. I'm only having the party so that I can see the clothes myself. :)
