It's coming , I promise.

To all of those that keep looking to see if there is anything new on this blog, I promise I will get something on here soon. We've just been taking it easy and trying not to have a whole lot on our plates. I'm sure this will soon be changing as we have fun activities and things to attend in the next few weeks. Thanks for checking!!

The forgotten gift.

On our way to church this morning I came to the realization that January is one of my favorite months. I always forget how much of a present it is. It seems like November and December and busy and filled with fun but then there's a pause..... January. Quiet. I have found this to be true for a couple of years now and realize it's like the forgotten or ignored present left under the tree to be opened when the Christmas decs are packed away. Just a thought.
Congrats AMY!!

Lilly

These are some clips of Lilly that we thought we would share. The first one is dark but is nothing else you can hear her. The second one was inspired because she is infatuated with a little boy she knows and the last couple of days she has decided he would enjoy teac parties, games, and who knows what else. I'm sure these are just what he would like to be doing Like I've said before we are in so much trouble! Enjoy!

Dolls, Dolls, Dolls!!

Today Madeline had a tea party with a friend, Elizabeth, who has two American Girl Dolls. Madeline also has two. Ironically, they both "Elizabeth". Needless to say they had fun. There were enough clothes to fill a full size suitcase! Ok, maybe not quite. They both have the doll beds to go with their respective dolls and both have horses for their dolls. They started their afternoon off with making mini pizza's for lunch and then dressed the dolls and themselves for a tea party. The last pic is on of Madeline's dolls and Lillian's Bitty Baby dressed in the replica's of the girls Christmas dresses. Pat sewed the green last year to match last years dresses and the red one's match this years dresses.


Tea Party in Progress
Kit and Felicity got elected to sit at the little table.

Making the tiny treats for the tea party.

So much fun! They were quite serious about this creative process.


All in all a good Friday!
