January 27, 2010 - "You stand right there!"

The littlest has developed quite exciting vocal skills and is pretty demanding at times, now that she knows how to make herself heard. Tonight, while trying to get a modeling shot of her big sisters new skirt, she ran into the kitchen, slammed herself against the cabinets and basically said "Caylee! You stand right there!" which really sounded like "Cayay! You and eye hair!" She kept pointing next to her, in front of the cabinets. Her sister ran over and I quickly snapped a shot.

January 26, 2010 - A ruffled skirt

I made this cute ruffly skirt out of a pair of the middle one's jeans. They had a worn out knee but were otherwise great jeans. I thought to make them into a skirt, which she has now dubbed the Lovey Day Skirt. Here it is finished.

January 25, 2010 - Princess Fashion Show

My girls were having a ball playing together. It doesn't happen often and certainly not so organized. Monday they decided to have a princess fashion show. The big girls helped the little one put on a costume so she could play too. I managed to get a couple pictures of them all together, but I had to bribe the littlest with a french fry to get her to sit!

January 24, 2010 - Potty Training

The little one has gone back and forth on potty training for a while. She seemed so ready and then she stopped. The last few days she's been interested again. We found her yelling in her room at 10pm last night, without her diaper. I brought her down, gave her a drink and sat her on the potty seat. She turned her head, looked at me and said "You go potty too?"

January 16 - January 23 - Catching up

January 16, 2010
The girls wanted to try out the heart shaped ice trays. I thought it'd be fun to make them different colors so we added food coloring to a cup of water and poured it in. I think I am beginning to dislike the gel coloring a lot. It totally separated after freezing, even though we mixed it really well. Oh well. The girls loved it.

We had gone to my mother in laws for the day, and I totally forgot my camera :(

January 18, 2010
No school today!! The girls stayed home and we had a lot of quiet activities. The most exciting part for the girls? Making "Toasty Pizza" for lunch. So simple. Bread, spread a little bit of pasta sauce on top, sprinkle with cheese and add your fave toppings (pepperoni for the girls, tomatoes for me). Bake at 350 till it's all melty and crisp. The best part? The "crust" is so much easier to cut than regular pizza dough, you can just use a butter knife.

It was another yucky snowy day but we made the best of it. Even in the dreariness the girls had a ton of fun playing in the snow. The all seem to love eating it, no matter how many times I told them not to, I guess it can't be resisted.

Look at how I found TJ sleeping. He is sooo weird. I'm posting two pics today because it really needs to be seen from different angles. Everytime I see this, it reminds me of catdog haha

Poor little one has hit the terrible twos a few months early. She's so cranky and miserable these days. Some times all she wants is to curl up on the couch under a soft blanket and cry. Like this...

I have been really busy with making bows. I had some orders come through the shop for customs and I'm really proud of them. I especially love these ones. They're simple and sweet, in my opinion.

January 23, 2010
Last night I made some pillows for my living room. I'm pretty proud of how they turned out. Of course, it only makes me want to sew more!

January 15, 2010 - My boys

In our house of pink, we have two boy kitties. TJ is our white and orange domestic short hair. Leo is the half Maine Coon. They're very lovey. Here's a quick picture of the two of them.

January 14, 2010 - Almost 2

See this little girl? She'll be two on April Fool's Day. How did that happen? How did she grow into such a little person? We tried to take some pictures for her birthday invitations. She was bawling her eyes out before we started and as soon as we set her down, she smiled. Love her.
