Birthday Celebration

Hello Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Last week i celebrated my birthday at the happiest place on earth. it brought me joy to know it would bring a weekend of smiles on the faces i love. My sweet fiance surprised me by staying here and had my room filled with birthday surprises before i even arrived (thanks honey!). This is one of the surprises.

You wouldn't have guessed it was early February after seeing the girls' adorable summer dresses and sun-kissed rosy cheeks.

Since the weather was so hot and gorgeous we spent a lot of time at the pool. The girls couldn't get enough of swooshing down the water slide. They even got me to go down the large water slide although the water was freezing. How could I not with them chanting "go mom!"?

a few more precious moments

1. a bug's land
2. King Arthur Carrousel
3. poolside Grand California Hotel
4. ElecTRONica @ California Adventure

i finished the 12 valentines for the girls' class.

My hopes of taking a class picture with the kids wearing their pins didn't happen but the girls were certainly proud and excited to bring them to class and that had us all smiling.

i am working on a fun project with my new sewing machine! i am hoping it will be ready to share with you next week!

until next time,

Heart Felt Pins

Hello Friends!

What did i stay up all night doing?
Making these little guys for the girls!

It was one of those nights i knew i should have been snuggled in my bed sleeping but
i was too excited to see how they would turn out!

With Valentine's Day around the corner I was looking for a great idea for a Valentines gift other than candy. I searched the web and found these cute little guys from purl bee.

i didn't have any pinking shears so mine are cut with regular scissors. I added the girls' initials for fun.
i'll be making 12 of these for the girls' preschool class... I think i'll start now by making a few tonight. These are really fun and easy to make.

Another fun project i can't wait to make are these cute heart felt barrettes from the purl bee.

until next time,
