Also, today I was mighty pleased with myself for finding some cabinet safety locksand thwarting Brielle's attempts to empty my cupboards every two seconds. You can see my nifty locks in the background of this picture. ....the same picture that clearly shows Brielle will not be stopped THAT easily. If she can't mess up my cupboards she'll just turn her attention to my rugs!
The child is a tornado leaving destruction in her path :-P
What else? Well this weekend we were hosting the inlaws. They came up to see our new house for the first time. Here are the girls posing with Grandma H...who is the one the girls look the most like based on baby pictures. They take after Lee, who looks a lot like his mom....and his mom's baby pictures definitely resemble the girls' pictures as well.
This morning Lee and Raya cooked up some "cupcakes" aka muffins for breakfast. Raya got to do her favorite things in the world--stir and crack eggs :-)
Then they went for a pony ride :-P
Isn't Miss Raya just the prettiest?
She's especially pretty when she does her classic "cheese" smile, don't you think? :-P
This morning I tried coaching Raya on a more attractive smile. I bribed her with candy if she would "smile pretty at Mama and don't close your eyes" ....this is what earned her the candy:
At least she tried! haha
To end today, don't forget about my giveaway going on!! We have just over 15 people who've entered so I *will* be picking a 1st and 2nd place winner---yay! But I still need more people to enter.

...and you know what is mind-blowing to me? I have like 45 people who've "liked" my Facebook page, and only a fraction of those people have entered the giveaway. Do they not like free stuff?!?

...and speaking of Christmas, I have a new design in my shop...a ribbon Christmas tree shirt This is soooo cute you guys. I'm going to make Brielle one in red/green I think. There's no better time to splurge on handmade kid's clothes then when you are preparing for Christmas parties and tons of holiday pictures, so just let me know if I can help you design a custom holiday outfit for your little one(s)!!!
And one more thing....who else's children didn't get the memo about "fall back"?? Brielle was up at 5am!! Did she not know the clocks changed this morning?! ;-)
