I am holding onto these photos for a special wall project, but I just can't keep them to myself, these images just make me smile. Matilda Jane has been a favorite clothing line for awhile, but I've never had access to a Trunk Keeper until recently. I just love how girly my daughters look- like little dolls. I'm hosting a Trunk Show in October to help showcase this gorgeous line of girl clothes and will be using some of these images to promote the party. Until then, you'll have to wait for the invite ;)
1. My (okay, our) truck got demoted in the sharpest-looking-vehicle-we-own department to this little creature:
8. I made a meatloaf ring for dinner tonight. It was like cooking something straight out of 1972. Just for the record, I still have to eat my meatloaf with barbecue sauce to down it.
Ashleigh's first day back to pre-school was yesterday- and while she may not have been as excited at the whole idea of me leaving her, you wouldn't have known while she was taking a first day picture for me :)
Another day, another afternoon to add to the very long list of Lauren's Antics.
Sarah has been pretty savvy with the Internet lately- she's had a drop down menu for some favorite online kids' sites and recently joined in on the magical world of googling. I had to block a couple of things, just to be safe on what games were coming up (my six-year-old doesn't need to be dressing Nicole Richie's cartoon baby, I think), but we're mostly smooth sailing around here.
She. Could. Not. Wait.
The town just north of us hosted its annual Sweet Corn Festival this past weekend. We were sure to put it on the calendar since we missed it by two weeks last year! We went on Saturday afternoon, which happened to be record breaking temperatures for our mild Ohio summer we have been having. Seriously, when the sweat is running down your back, you know it's hot.
Just about a year ago, we signed Sarah and Ashleigh up for gymnastics. Little did we know that Sarah would love love love it and Ash would rather dance. Sarah was doing pretty well at her regular session classes and not too long after beginning, the coach approached us and asked if she thought we might be willing to try Sarah at the pre-team practices- which added another weekly 2-hour practice, plus a little adjusting of the monthly budget.
Since our sub-division was having a community garage sale this weekend, I thought it might be a good idea to bring out the lemonade stand that the girls and I keep talking about doing for months. So a few nights ago, I made a little sign from this idea here (thanks again, Martha) and also decided that selling a snack and water bottles might lure in non-lemonade types.
5: The time we should be at Kelly's for our Book Club cookout.
I. The girls became owners of a new craft table a couple of weeks ago. Thank you, IKEA. Andy cut a few inches off the legs of a regular sized table to make this one fit Sarah's sitting height as well as Lauren's sitting height. Genius.
