we have been...

And racing
And dancing
And chasing
And leaping
And bounding
Mountain climbing
4-Wheel driving
And swimming
And learning
Piano playing
Always praying
Joyful Chaos we're feeling
A New Year our life begins!

okay...we are doing it again...sort of...

We have another party planned...
but it is just a small one...
'twin' cousins...born about 10hrs apart...
and my sis is in charge so that makes it easier...
Lalaloopsey Birthday Party! was "hat! hat!" so I put on the "hat" 
and he ran to the spot where his sister was
getting her pictures done. 
 Isn't everything virtual these days? 
They each get their own virtual Lala of themselves!
(okay, just an digital drawing)

sorta looks like them though, right :)
 and...for the finale...
ta da!
that is major sewing for me...

care bears birthday party!

 biggest party she's ever had...and she planned it...
so fun, 
the birthday girl got 'taken' and
the kids had to rescue her
so they could all earn their care bear tummy symbols
and learn about their new 'powers'
....but...I hope she has it out of her system
and next year says, lets just keep it family. :)

what are sisters for. :)


Teacher Appreciation Door for my
kid's Speech Language Pathologist
who is retiring this year!
 each silhouette is one of her students...

fix it up...wear it out...

...this is our beloved "Creature"
(the doll. Not the little monster, I mean boy. :)
well, Creature, tho loved,
was not snugly, and didn't sing anymore (creepy),
and was coming apart at the seams...
so he did disappear...
and new, snugly soft, bigger "Creature"
seems to be taking his place just fine...

slipperly slope...

...we've been busy! I thought things kinda slow down after Christmas...wrong...boy was I wrong...they are NOT slowing down and I'm trying to figure out why not! It's like you get over the top of the hill (the new year) and go flyyyyying to the bottom....end of school year....and SUMMER....

...our newest project.
well, hubby's project very proud of him: :)

Americana girls' room + three daughters = triple bunk bed:
