Elayna's Sports Day

Well it has been one beautiful sunny week here. We went to the outdoor waterslides on Monday, have been BBQ'ing for dinners, putting on the AC, and bought an outdoor kiddie pool today which the kids have already spent a few hours in. And yesterday was Sports Day for Elayna at her school - a full day of being outside and watching the competitions. Even Alyssa lasted the entire day and crashed early for bed last night.

Pure Fun!

I just love this pic of Elayna & Chantel - sliding down an inflatable slide at the Buddy Walk this past weekend.

Two more Gracie dresses . . .

So the other two Portabellopixie Gracie dresses are done! The third one is for my niece so the three girls can match at a family wedding next month. The fabric is from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden - three different colorways of the Peonies print. I'm happy to have this project done (on time!) but now I really need to get the flowergirl dress finished for Alyssa - that one is a bit more of a challenge. I also offered to make some matching ties for the ringbearers so I'm hoping to get some time in the sewing room in the next week and stay focused on getting those done before I get side-tracked into a different project.

Alyssa is 2!

So my baby turned two this past weekend. We had a big family get-together on her birthday and today she had a few friends over for a party.

hibernating . . .

We're enjoying a cooler week over here. Lots of cookies and bread being made inside, and rain coming down outside. We also moved the girls' beds downstairs this past week. We took them apart, so no more bunkbeds, which means no more climbing up a ladder to change sheets or having to heave a girl to her own bed when they fall asleep together. So far it's working out well and my storage closet is being emptied of all the baby stuff I need to go through. Today Alyssa is feeling a little feverish so her blanket and soother are going everywhere and there's lots of snuggles going on.
