Sooo... So long school! So long alarm clocks and carpool! So long sewing/crafting! There will only be time for chasing children and cleaning all their messes. Well paid job? NO. Appreciated job? NO. Best job in the world? TOTALLY!!!
I do have a couple of photos I snapped ever so quickly before zipping off. They all make me smile! Wish I were better at taking pics, but usually I finish the work and then race out the door to deliver it. One day I'll be organized (ha! ha!). Fun fact: a sweet gentleman in my life calls me "Piddles". You get the picture :). So here's what I have to offer...
It's she adorable?? Totally in love! I have decided that the combination of pink and aqua is THE color combination of the season. Along with a zillion others I'm sure. Next up, pink/aqua tote for yours truly!
Here's a yummy baby gift. Triple trouble survival kit is what you call that! Zip out the door with these supplies and you're set for a little shopping trip. I vote Anthropologie. Goodness, gives me goosies just thinking about it :)
Now back to girl! Baby shower gift. Her sweet onesie is in a cupcake box & the tutu around the outside. Just lovely.
Now this is just for fun. Look at my new table decor! Stinkin' cute baby frogs! Just squeal... Didn't that feel good?!
Here's to warm days, loud children, and chaos. Life is good!

Now the second outfit. So miffed at myself for forgetting to put the matching headband in the photo, but too late now. It's totally cute though. There's a third outfit but I ran out of time to take pics. Maybe tomorrow... Well, maybe not - I'll be at church. Smile.

Yes, headbands. It's like the bow on a package. These are gifts from God you know! The design I put on them was actually a Sew Poshy creation - how fancy is that! I have grand software to design amazing things, I just don't know how to use it. This project gave me a little practice. I should take more classes, but I play too hard (giggle, giggle, just ask my hubby). Close ups? Absolutely...
So there you go. Smooches to the sisters. And smooches to my sister, she's amazing! Nothing in life compares to a sister. If you have one, cherish her.
Thought I would give you a peek at a few more pics. I haven't blogged alot recently. It's all to do with my KISS. "Keep It Simple Sista." It does magical things in my life. Ever read If You Take A Mouse To School? Yeah, that's me. So when I remember to KISS, life is much easier. And then I have more time to kiss, if you're following me. (I just cracked myself up!) Here's baby girl's new leggings:
We went to a birthday party last weekend and here's our gift.
This has a zipper. Ooooh, aaaaaah. I have been working on zippers these days. BTW, I don't like them and they don't like me. Yuck. I've been sewing for so many years and have never perfected this skill. The time has come. One day I will conquer a silly zipper!
Now I'm off. I hear pitter patter upstairs. Sleeping house is now awake. And yes, I'm smiling huge. Off to kiss (literally) my babes! Kiss yours today too!

It's that time of year again... We now refer to Halloween as "Creepy Time." I still can't wrap loving arms around this holiday. All of my children seem fasinated with creepy time though. I'm sure it's the lure of candy jackpots and getting to dress up in wonderful costumes. I suppose I'll have to decorate the mantle again. I even might have to set out something orange (gross). BTW, the color orange makes my top 3 list of things I don't like. Well, maybe I can make a glitter pumpkin. That makes me smile!!
Oh my, this was quite the sparkly day! Two fabu tutus and two very happy girls. They are the sweetest little duo that performed in a fall festival for their screaming fans (okay, I was the only one screaming). When we found out about our performance, the little divas went right to planning their outfit. It was so amazing to see how detail oriented they both were and even quite particular about the shades of pink they picked. So while they played away all evening, I was Cinderella. I worked until 3:30 in the morning and got back up early the next morning to finish them. Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!! It just feels good to make children a priority in life. :) Drown them in love, teach them how to be a lady/gentleman, and show them how to love Christ. Come on Mommies, let's be warriors!!

Lila Tueller fabric... It takes me to such happy places! Every time I look at it I giggle. I have even been skipping. You know, just like happy children do. Spread a little happy around you today. Maybe you should skip. It will make someone smile (or laugh!).
