Somebody Help This Dog

We've tried explaining to The Princess that the dog is NOT a doll--or even a little person--but I don't think she's getting it....

The other day she told us Oreo liked to "spin." WHAT? It seems she had put the dog in my office chair and was "spinning" her around...*sigh*

Dino Days

My kids' school has Dino Week--a week focused on books and reading--and today was "Dress Like Your Favorite Book Character" day. My girl chose to go as Laura Ingalls and my son decided to go as The Man in the Big Yellow Hat (from Curious George). All I have to say is, "Did I REALLY think I could make a big yellow hat all by myself?" While the costumes are definitely NOT even close to my quality standards, it just doesn't matter, because my kids thought they looked SO GOOD--and that's the point!

Feelin' the Love

The kids both had fun parties at school. I think you can tell what they both enjoyed the most!

Some PUPPY love....Oreo has secured her place in our hearts!

A Little of This and A Little of That

Just a little "catch-up" post...

The Prince had a birthday--

The birthday cake:

The birthday sundae (We take the kids to IHOP on their birthdays--it's the ONLY day they get ice cream at breakfast!):

Cupcakes I made for his class (yes, I made them):

Six big BEAR hugs from his teacher:

The rest of the birthday cake at the family party:

The Princess gave us some looks--

If I don't eat all my pancakes, I don't get ice cream? OH MY!!

This is THE LOOK...you know, the look only girls seem capable of giving:

And, the DOG--

She needs another trip to the groomers:

She's learning a few tricks:

She LOVES to play with The Prince:

News From bella*tessa designs!!

In the midst of all the healing going on around here, some other changes have occurred, as well...

I am now a member of the ebay design group:

It's an exciting new venture for me and have listed my first set with them today. You can find it HERE!

Where I've Been...

I've been nursing the sick...in my own household. Everyone in my home has been on antibiotics in the past month, so we are all doing much better!

In addition, I made the decision to return to teaching next year. However, it seems God had a different idea, because I'll be returning AFTER SPRING BREAK! A teacher in my children's school is going on maternity leave and I'll be taking her place. It seems there's quite a bit of paperwork involved to return to a job that you left 6 years ago.

I will be continuing with my sewing, but am excited that it will be shifting from a full-time job to an enjoyable hobby! I will still be listing sets on ebay and etsy and will keep you updated here. I just won't be listing quite as many, so if you like something, get it while you can!!

Life is returning to normal, so hopefully my blog posts won't be quite as sparce. I'll be posting about my son's birthday next!
