And thanks to all of my new followers and Facebook fans too! But just a reminder, you must comment either here on my blog *or* on my Facebook page in order to be entered into my giveaway so don't forget to do that :-) I don't want to just assume that every follower and fan is interested in the giveaway so if you want entered just comment telling me so!
Now onto some cute pictures! First, I ordered long sleeve tshirts for the cold weather season--for my shop. Now normally I'm disappointed with "unisex" shirts because they tend to look more like boy shirts with the fit and cut. However I just got in my first shipment of long sleeve tshirts today and I'm so impressed with how equally cute they look on both boys AND girls! I am watching my niece and nephew today and Sawyer was more than happy to help Raya model for me :-) He told me he'd really love me to make him "a red shirt like this---with bunnies on it" LOL. We'll see buddy :-P
Now for the record, all of my designs are available on these long sleeve shirts (a variety of colors available--sizes 2T-5/6)...these shirts are an additional $3 so you just purchase the long sleeve upgrade along with whatever design you want in my store. Long sleeve white onesies are always a *free* upgrade though.
I can't wait to make some new designs on these!
In other news, today while the babies took their morning nap the big kids and I did Thanksgiving turkey handprint pictures (idea from Pinterest of course!)....they turned out great! It was hard for me not to help them make the pictures look perfect (picking coordinating fall papers, etc.) but I decided they should be able to do them how they wanted :-) So they each picked 4 "special papers" to make the handprint turkey feathers and then they drew with pencil on the background writing/drawing things they are Thankful for. The pencil backgrounds needed some interpretation though so that others would know what they were haha....so I had them dictate to me the things they were thankful for as well. Here are the masterpieces!
Raya's (In case you can't read it she was thankful for "Dada, sissy and Harper, green cup, Barney and Baby Bop, kids, and candy" ....I love how the first thing that came to her mind was "dada"....when Mama was the one doing the s tinkin' craft with her! ;-)
And Sawyer's ...he was thankful for "snow, birds, his green cup, mommy and daddy, his pen, Barney, flowers, his snack, the raspberry bush, Shawna's trampoline and tree house, and his candy bucket" :-P
Oh, back to me taking pictures of the new long sleeve shirts. I had taken them outside for pictures and the babies flocked to the front door to watch us like poor, neglected children :-P
"Yay! She's coming for us Harper!"
And although the babies missed out on our fun handprint craft, I do have this:
I may or may not have bribed the big kids with candy in exchange for the modeling. And Raya may or may not have reminded me the *second* she walked inside so that I didn't forget!
Oh, and Raya may or may not be wearing a swimsuit cover-up as a dress today :-P
What else? Have you guys seen the "Choo Choo Soul" dances on Disney? Well Raya loves dancing along and today all the kids got in on the action!
They decided they needed dancing headbands on :-)
These next few need no explanation ...awwwwww
Today I was cleaning up the kitchen and things were pretty quiet. I went around the corner to see what was going on and I walked into story hour! Being good as can be :-)
Let's not forget the babies today...being good as well! Although poor Brielle has a nasty cold :-(
Now some quick ones from yesterday---Raya wanted to drink her "bottle" like Brielle
Raya loves to smell the flowers Lee gave me for our anniversary. Although the flowers have slowly dwindled and died off and without fail Raya always chooses the one dead flower left to "smell" LOL
And here is Brielle WALKING yesterday! She just started walking (pushing the doll stroller) everywhere! I will be very surprised if she isn't walking unassisted by her 1st birthday, but we'll see!
She's a lady with places to go people! And don't you love the dangling monkey paci :-)
....but she still takes a spill every now and then. That stroller gets to going too fast for her little short legs to keep up!!
And I'm saying one thing I'm thankful for at the end of each entry this month, so today I am thankful for my niece and nephew! I love being able to have them over to my house regularly now that we've moved back and it's so fun seeing the friendships between them and my girls--it's going to be fun watching them all grow up together!
