On to a slightly greater success story...I started these little numbers almost a year ago, and I have JUST finished them/taken them to get monogrammed. Pace's is going to be more like a shirt than a dress by this point :) In order to sew (without a sewing room), I either have to let the house go, make a big mess, and just do it OR leave it all down in the basement until the urge takes me again. Obviously, the urge hasn't taken me in a while, but since it did and since I had to go pick these finally finished dresses up in Homewood...
We decided to make a little trip to Homewood park! This child will not, under any circumstance, keep her left shoe on her foot, but look at what a little gymnast she is.
And this one too.
Look who else came with us to the park--Aunt Caroline! She really was a sweet sister to come spend the morning playing with us. Especially since she and Dad took the girls to the zoo for half the day yesterday to let me have some alone time (and some time with that wretched sewing machine). THANK YOU!!!!! Does anybody else do this? Kill two birds with one stone by putting BOTH of your children in the same baby swing? It sure is a lot easier than trying to push two different swings, and they love it (even though it's not looking like it in this picture). After play time, it was off for Friday's Special at Tazikis. If you haven't partaken, then you are sadly missing out. They really do ONLY serve it on Fridays though. Don't go in on Thursday thinking you're going to weasel it out of them--I've tried :)
Dapples and her grilled cheese.
Just in case any of you were getting ready to post an "aren't you a good, crafty mom" comment, I'd like to leave you with this.
