The title applies to both Daisy’s dress and also Day 1 of our Disney World scrapbook. Day 1 ended up being 21 pages, whew! Day 2 is going to be just as long, if not longer since it was World Showcase in Epcot. That’s probably our favorite park so there are tons of pics from […]

I didn’t say 3:00 of which day

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

What was I thinking? There was no way that dress was going to be finished in the hour and a half after I posted yesterday. Aside from the applique flowers, I had to embroider the leaves and centers of the flowers. I really don’t like handstitching and embroidering is a bit out of my […]

We can stop anytime

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

So uh, do you think we’re addicted to Webk!nz? This is all of the ones that belong to the girls, set up in the living room so they can play Duck, Duck, Goose (don’t ask).
Right now I’m trying to finish Daisy’s dress, but I’m guessing I won’t because it always takes twice as logn […]

Today was our American Girl Book Club meeting. The subject was Kit who was a depression-era girl. Not to many crafts associated with the time so I had to improvise. I had them make their own hobo signs which went over okay, then they made their own “Waste Not Want Not Almanacs” which was met […]

Car post

Friday, March 20th, 2009

*This was typed earlier in the day while I was waiting for Tabitha.
It’s amazing how lost one can become without the internet. I’m sitting in my car with the laptop with Daisy playing behind me while Tabitha is in gymnastics. I would give anything for an internet signal right now. Why? I would probably just […]

bug off

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

Last night there was a small moth in the living room. This morning I found a mosquito in the girls’ room. Then I went outside and a giant carpenter-like bee came walking into the garage then two wasps started flying around my head. And I found another small moth in the house. What in the […]

a new week

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Last week didn’t really happen. Tabitha was sick so we used that as our excuse to be utter bums for the first part of the week and still kind of sleep-walked through the latter half of the week. It was good and bad at the same time.
Yesterday wasn’t normal for us either as […]

It’s a sweat pants and make-up free kinda day

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Technically it’s yoga pants since I don’t own sweats but the feeling is the same. After a more than lovely weekend, Tabitha has come down with Daisy’s cold. She slept horribly and woke up sad which isn’t how you want to start your day. So she’s lazing around doing whatever she wants which leaves me […]

Daisy George

“I need a tissue, and by the way, I sneezed and I didn’t quite hear anyone say ‘bless you’ to me.”
She’s doing well today and in fabulous spirits as in pretty much her norm when sick. Thankfully, she slept no worse than she does any other night of the week so I really think that […]

laughter is the best medicine

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

I just finished re-watching a fairly recent Robin Williams stand up routine that took place in the UK. I know I saw it before, but still funny to hear him greet Prince Charles and Camillia as Chuck and Cam. Not to mention all he had to say on Sarah Palin. Good times If […]

A new scrapbooker

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Tabitha was given an American Girl scrapbook kit for Christmas and we finally got around to ordering pictures for her. After gymnastics today, she and I went to the mall to pick them up. Ritz is my preferred printer and apparently they have a 6¢ sale on prints every Tuesday and Wednesday. They are only […]

All tucked in

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

The house is quiet as 3 out of 4 Ancs are in bed asleep. Chris has a rather bad cold so I ordered him to take Nyquil and go to bed. This is his second cold in 3 weeks but he never got a break in between so it’s like he’s been sick constantly. His […]
