it's so sad too...
look at his happy face. oh my gosh, he LOVED it!!!
and i cringe at the site of this!!!
thank goodness for sissy! if it wasn't for her, i would have had to enter the OCEAN!
salt water, sand and shaven legs = no bueno!
what will i do without her???
the little princess keeps asking the same question,
for without her, the little princess doesn't get to go to the beach as often as she would like.
she has a great time making new friends and finding sand crabs.
maybe i can go through hypnosis and become a beach lover!
have a happy summer!
oh. and beware of the GIANT SQUID!!!

it's a childhood favorite...
as a child i always got pralines n' cream and burgundy cherry. as a teen, i loved pink bubble gum and as an adult my favorite is p'nut butter n' chocolate with whip cream and a cherry on top. YUM!!!
- lately, i've been craving my favorite and the kids are all benefiting.
bub was slightly disappointed when he realized his chocolate chip cookie dough was lacking the cookie dough. lucky for the baby, because he got what bub didn't want.
he LOVED it!
down to the last drop!!!

there are at least 5 things in it that i want to make right now.
i can't wait for fall!
this is a must for anyone who loves cupcakes like i do...
my dear friend patti gave this to me
and i LOVE it!
this fabric line is a perfect blend of vintage and modern.
sissy loves it (that says a lot) and wants a quilt made for her bed when she moves
next month. i just ordered fat quarters and can't wait to get them!

i spent the after trying to help her keep a straight line...
while i was away...dad teaches algebra...
completely eliminating the need for arithmetic!
while i was working at the quilt shop, i get a picture message...
it's a picture of the barbie dress daddy helped her make.
she even drew the pretty rose on the front.
they were both so pleased...
i was also informed that that was the second attempt at doll clothes.
the first was a top that ended up in the trash.
apparently, barbies' boobs were too big for her top!
i thought that was hysterical!

when i asked the birthday girl what she wanted for her birthday dinner she asked for leanna's strawberry spinach salad.
i was surprised!
then when she said she wanted the strawberry trifle and the fruit pizza we had seen in the family fun magazine
i was even more surprised.
i ended up using sharyn's recipe for the fruit pizza
and it was a hit!
i even got to set the table with the fancy nancy plates and cups that didn't get used...
can you see her cute face in the background?
as a matter of fact, i had a fancy nancy parfait paty all planned when my little princess
decided that she wanted to go to chuck e cheese.
for those of you who know me or have followed my blog for awhile,
you are probably laughing because you know how much it killed me to agree.
but agree, i did... (very relunctantly)
every child should have at least one birthday with the big rat, right?
do you see that big ol' medal around her neck?
that's why she wanted to have the party, so she could get the medal!
the girls had a GREAT time and i didn't have to do a thing!
i didn't even get to make cute cupcakes.
your right punkin, it was great!
(four years old - you still love glitter and sparkle, but you are having a better time at putting your outfits together.)
(five years old - your fairy party was the perfect party for you. you loved to dress up in your sister's old dance costumes, put makeup on and dance!)
and at the age of six, you are still as girly and fashionable as EVER! you dress yourself 90% of the time and i love your individuality. you are a fantastic artist with a wonderful imagination! you love your baby brother and argue with bub constantly! you are strong minded and determined. you are sensitive and kind, loving and thoughtful. you love to bake, cook and make up your own recipes. you are content to sit in my sewing room with me and create. your favorite colors are aqua and pink. you learned to ride a quad and a motorcycle this year and can't wait to go camping! you aren't looking forward to sissy going off to college, but you are looking forward to having your own room and you are so excited that mommy is having a baby. you are a joy and a blessing! i pray that you will always be strong in spirit and true to the person the Lord intended you to be.
