Here's Another

One of the moms in The Prince's class comes to every special event and documents it with pictures. I was able to snag this fabulous one of The Prince giving his Poppi a special picture he had colored at home to give to him on Grandparent's Day.

Grandparent's Day

Today was Grandparent's Day at the kids' school. They talk about this day for weeks before it arrives. This year my mom and my father-in-law came for the whole thing (they spent time in each class), and my dad was able to pop-in for a few minutes--which was all they really needed. My mother-in-law had planned to be there, but had to fly to be with her father this week as his health is deteriorating--and they TOTALLY understand it--they said, "She can just come next year!"

Pictures are distracting when they are trying to "perform" for the grandparents, but I managed to snap a few of them with their Grandma and their Poppi. I was taking some pictures with my mom's camera, too, and I guess I forgot to take one of The Prince with Grandma--she'll have to forward them to me (hint, hint).

I took them both home early when the event ended, because they were exhausted! I just love it when they are like this--close and cuddly!

There is no other way to describe how I feel about them...they are my heart!

I snapped some pictures of them right after their showers tonight. They were willing to cooperate and I snapped away! These were my favorites, by far!

A dress celebrating everyone's favorite "sweet" game, Candyland, which can be found HERE.

And, a sweet moment: Daddy reading books at bedtime. *sigh*

Today, I listed two sets. They are by far 2 of my favorite sets. They take FOREVER to make with all the detailed applique work, but those Japanese fabrics basically SCREAM at me to make appliques for them! The first is a new set requested by a favorite customer and inspired by Goldilocks fabric. The second is a relist of my poplular OZ--Over the Rainbow--set. You can find them both HERE!

Today, I also walked in on this:

The Princess had gone into my closet and shut the door. After a bit, I hear her talking "very authoritatively," about her "work" and having to find her "important papers." I just don't know WHERE she gets these things..... ;)

This and That....

As you can tell, blog posts have begun to fall by the wayside as other events are seemingly overtaking my life--orders, laundry, taxi-service, school meetings, practices, lessons, dinners.... I have NOT given up on blogging, and will continue to post as I have time--or as there are things to say.

This fall, The Prince is playing soccer (again). The Princess has decided that she wants to play when the Spring season starts up (much to the joy of her father). They are BOTH in dance classes. Our dance studio started up a boys' hip-hop class and The Prince loves it!! He's learning a routine to the High School Musical basketball song. The Princess is continuing with ballet/tap and is enjoying it!

Here's The Prince at his first game this last Saturday. When I see pictures like this, it is uncanny how much he looks like his dad when he played. He scored 2 goals and it was fun to watch!

Both of the kids have been wanting to help with the cooking lately, so we are taking advantage while we can! Tonight they each took turns coating the meat with cornstarch.
