Growing Up

Abby's new favorite thing to do is computer games. I think she could do it all day which amazes me because things rarely hold her attention like that...even tv! We've been doing playhousedisney.com and she can do most of it without assistance.
Also, when I picked them up from school her teacher told me that when Kane got them dressed for school Friday (I was out of town) he put them in each other's clothes! I had laid out everything...even the bow and socks. They had each others monogram on and abby's pants were short while Reese's pants were long! Haha, I thought that was cute!

***Apparently, when my friend Buffie went to pick them up after school, the teachers had them in hall taking pictures of the mix up! HAHA

I made some hairbows today...our supply had gotten scarce and the girls have been leaving the house with mismatched bows...or NO bows at all! (gasp!) I used this awesome tutorial I made them for about $2 a piece and they would retail for 8-10 I'd guess. I think I could make them cheaper if I didn't pay retail for the supplies. I took about an hour from start to finish.

Night Gowns

Here's the nightgowns finally! I forced myself to finish last night just in time for bedtime. They are not my best craftmanship...I was in a hurry. But they are just nightgowns after all! Abby loves hers, it's purple and princess-y...her two favorite things!

Nothing Special




I know it's been a while...sorry 'bout that! The truth is that we have been doing a whole lot of nothing! We have been hanging around the house as much as possible. Here are a few pictures of the girls painting with do-a-dot paints that they got for Christmas, they love it and do that everyday at least once. I have not been sewing, except for some monogramming. I monogrammed my whole set of new towels the other day and some of Kane's work shirts. Honestly I think I'm a little burnt out after Christmas! I'm almost done with the girls' nightgowns but they need to be hemmed...maybe I'll get around to that today. Mostly what I have been doing is reading. I am utterly obsessed with the Twilight series and have been reading them with all of my free time...and then some. I've read them all multiple times and seen the movie a few times too. It has really made me aware of my addictive personality! They make my tv shows a bore in comparison. That's all I have been doing but I hope to get back to my sewing soon...my fabric stash is obscene and I have tons of fun projects planned for the girls' spring wardrobe.

Christmas at Mimi's




We had our party at my mom's a little late because some of us were sick on christmas day. When we felt better it was such a relief to still have some Christmas left! We had a great time, although my tummy still hurt and I really couldn't eat the YUMMY food, I was so sad. The girls got a wonderful playhouse but not until Mimi could give them a talk about sharing...Abby loves that thing so much. i think I could have skipped all my presents and just saved the money! We have had a little trouble with sharing...this morning Abby actually yelled for me to come and get Reese because she wanted some "privacy!" AKA...I don't want to share!

Grandma's Party




We always have a separate part for Kane's Grandma, this year the girls had a ball! They went over early to help decorate her tree and then played in Grandma's fantastic playroom. She used to have a little daycare/preschool in her garage attic space and it is still filled to the brim with goodies of all kinds. We had a great time and Abby adored the mermaid Barbie from Grandma.

A Sewin' Christmas...







Now that all the gifts have been given out, I can finally show you what I have been up to for many late December nights! I did a lot of sewing...I couldn't finish one project which were night gowns for the girls. I might finish them this week but honestly am a little burnt out!

Christmas Parade






It's a little late, but I finally got my pictures from the parade off the camera. We had such a great time...it was a beautiful day and we had a great seat! I put my chairs down hours before it started and we hung out with Miss Dena while we waited. We had a picnic for lunch in front of the store and just had a great time! Miss Dena went to the old fashioned drug store and got us all fountain drinks and old fashioned candy! What fun we had.
