Take at peek close (really close!) she is so proud of her makeup and that she got to wear my beautiful red beads, let's hope those make it back home! Oh, and her date is pretty smashing too!

Sometimes as a child you get what you want, other times you don't.

See this is why you have kids........

(If you have never heard the story behind this, well, then consider yourself better off!)

Last night the cupcake fabric laying on my office floor was calling my name. So off to search for a pattern. I found one on Oliver & S for a Lazy Day Skirt. Perfect. 20 min later my skirt was complete. I highly recommend this pattern for newbies to the sewing machine. Really, they even eliminated the bottom hem and replaced it with a ribbon.

Of course every cupcake skirt needs a matching shirt. I searched though Hailey's closet, by the light of the nightlight, and came up with her Halloween shirt. Put a cupcake over the pumpkin and the rest is history.
My model was a little cheeky this morning....

10 months!

Jenna celebrated her 10 month birthday today. At 10 months, she is a climbing and standing champ. She can crawl from one end of this house to the other in no time. One moment she is eating rocks in the locker area, the next she is picking feathers out of the down filled pillows. She is also pulling herself up onto everything -- yes, the crib has been lowered once again. She is still has happy as can be just gibber-jabbering away with her favorite words - Mama, Dada, uh-oh and baba (that's bottle). Here is a photo of her taken yesterday. The hat she sporting is one I made for Hailey back in the day.....and no, she does not have a choice in what she wears! :)

Fancy, Fancy.....

Last weekend we attended the Celebration of the Holiday Party. You can read all about it here. Christine does an excellent job of describing it. BUT I wanted to add how thrilled we all are that Nate won the silent auction for the dance lessons.......

(just turn your head, I have no idea how to flip a video!)
