Caution: Contains Cuteness

Here are some of the projects completed in the past week. I am having sooooo much fun creating, sewing, and trying on the clothes on my kiddos. Some are cuter than others. Hey, that is what happens! Sometimes my ideas fall short (like not so sure about the orange and pink shirt). Amelia inspired the ballerina shirt with her newfound love of ballerina music, ballerina flats, and her toot-toot. She wore her undershirt, tutu, tights, and flats all day. After dinner she came up to me and said, "Mom, I am a tired ballerina girl. Let's take it off and go to sleep." She did go to her bed, mostly to enjoy some binky time. What a funny little girl. She called me "darling" all day yesterday. The pants on Phillip are repurposed from a pair of ladies linen capris. I took my favorite pair of Phillip's pants, pinned them to the legs and cut away. They are a little wonky and long but still adorable. Good thing I have another pair of slacks to repurpose for him! The inspiration came from Dana at the Made website. Next pair will have knee pads on them!

Last night a thunder storm rolled through Sidney. After Phillip went to bed Justin, Amelia, and I went outside and sat on the sidewalk looking for lightening and listening for thunder. Amelia was snuggled in between Justin and I happy as a lark. She danced in the rain and let me twirl her around. She talked on and on about the rain, the lightening, and being with Mommy and Daddy. At first she kept talking about wishing on a red star. Justin was confused until he noticed a red warning light on a tower in the distance. We made wishes on the red star! The experience was so tender for us all. Amelia tried to recreate it this evening. Alas, there was no storm and Daddy was gone at work until 10:30 pm. As we sat on the sidewalk snuggled together she asked me where daddy was...because her other leg was cold.

Justin just brought me home a potted flower plant! I told him about 2 weeks ago I needed some fresh cut flowers (like gerbera's). Last night on Facebook I made a comment that he had not delivered yet. Ha ha, pressure.

Cute stuff!!! Yes, I need to have my MIL use that pattern for Ella! Yeah for the floweres! I need to see the ballerina skirt! My orange shirt from W*mart is different than yours, but it matches their matching skirt perfectly. We love dirt cups!!!
