Finished with Braces, Round One

This girl got her braces off after a year and a half.  She was too excited and decided to throw herself a party.  Abby always loves a celebration and any excuse to hang streamers all over my house.  She and Reese even dressed up in costumes.  It was a fun evening.  She is thrilled to be brace free and I am thrilled with her beautiful smile.

This is her cute orthodontist.  If you are in the Charleston are I couldn't recommend Reagin Orthodontics any more.  They are great to work with.  I can't say enough good things about them, go see it for yourself!

Cheer Camp 2014

Abby is on "B team" this year so she has a new different uniform and a serious routine.  She gets to cheer on the field this year for the B team football team on Thursday nights through half-time while the Senior Cubs like Reese cheer in the bleachers during the first quarter of the Varsity game on Friday nights. I am going to be using a ton of gas back and forth to school this year I think...
From last year to this year! What a difference, look how tall Reese is! And how straight Abby's teeth are, braces come off on Monday!

 My girls have really gotten into the habit of smiling for the camera. Sometimes they focus so much that they aren't paying attention to what they are doing!
 Reese really got into this cheer game, its a silly cheer about a turkey.  The ones in the middle say it first and the outside circle repeats.  I can see she was in her element here.

 Never thought of my tiny Abby as a base!  She is a trooper although she says this hurts her leg.

Beach Vacay 2014

 A good time was had by all.  What a treat it is to go every year.  I truly love spending time with my extended family and girls could not have had more fun with their cousins.

 I caught a genuine smile.  This one is going in a frame. <3 p="">

 It's a Kelly's Kids add once again!

 First time surfing!

Sewing Room Accessory Basket

Every year my smocking guild puts together raffle baskets to raise money and this year my friend Kelly and I had a great time sewing and putting this basket together.  To be honest I haven't been sewing much and there is nothing like signing up for something with a deadline to make you hit that power button!
 We decided to make our basket themed around ironing, which is an important part of successful sewing projects!  I had this great Alexander Henry sewing theme fabric in my stash and we started with that.

These are in the hoop zipper pouches by Pickle Pie Designs.  They are so much fun to sew!

 Iron Board Caddy with thread catcher and pin cushion

 The cover is included!

 I have to confess....I wanted to keep it. ;)

Zoo Visit

They're almost too big to look cute in a pony picture. :( I wish they would stop growing!!!

This is a terrible picture but Reese got head butted by this cow a few times.  I think it was trying to nuzzle.  Slammed her head into the fence!  She is a trooper though.

Reese in particular loves to pet animals.  I have to drag her away from the petting zoo portion.
Mimi gave the girls these cute hats for Easter.  They are for our beach trip this Summer but they couldn't wait to wear them!
