I am getting super tired of the wind and cold weather that is RUINING my plans for Springtime Fun!!! Emersyn and I are once again housebound and we NEED some time out-of-doors!!! These are the only darn "flowers" I have growing in my yard right now--sigh!!!!
We braved the wind one afternoon for some MUCH requested bubble blowing. We could not even get BUBBLES to form because it was just TOO windy--ARGHHH!!
Needless to say we have been spending lots of time together inside. Emerysn has gotten so sick of me she has actually traded me in for a new friend. She drug this POOR un-suspecting bunny back to her table and forced him to COLOR!! "Color Bunny--COLOR!!!" She was getting a little upset that he just SAT there:)
I think she thought he just needed some coaching. She kept trying to get the pencils to stay in his paw. She REALLY wanted him to color with her.
I finally got some pictures of Em in her recycled skirt. It is a little short (I guess I REALLY should have used a boy's shirt and not a girl's shirt), but with some leggings it looked stinkin cute.
I am running into a problem at my house. Check it out....
My little sweetie is getting bored while I am in the shower and finding ways to entertain herself. First it was with my make-up. She REALLY thought she had done a great job too. She kept telling me "MY Pretty mommy" and would not let me clean her up. SOOOOO I showed her what she looked like in the mirror. You could see the confusion---HMMMMM I really thought I had done a good job---how did I get to look like this??? YOu could tell she had really tried to get the mascara right too--good thing she did not poke her darn eyes out!!!
Then the next day I came out of the shower to find this in my closet---all of my socks dumped. I followed the trail of socks to find this...
Sexy huh???? We are also on a pants strike....her not me. She takes her pants off ALL DAY LONG!!! She would be on a diaper strike too, but I have to draw the line somewhere.
Today she had taken off her diaper (poopy btw) and came and found me in the shower. I spared you those pictures. HMMMM I stress the whole time I am in there wondering what will be destroyed next.
I have gotten a little crafting done--not much though. I have a few baby showers coming up so I made a couple self binding receiving blankets. I also made some matching burp cloths. This time I only had strips of fabric left so I made stripey ones and I did not have any batting so I left it out. I actually think I might like them better without the batting--go figure. It only took me making about 100 before I figured that out.
I have also seen cute fabric braclets everyone on blogs. So I tried it out. It was super easy.
I used a cheap plastic bracelet. It was like a live strong bracelet, but this was a Michael Jackson one--super classy (but on sale). I just took a strip of fabric about an inch wide and starting wrapping it around and around. Then when I got it all the way around I used fabric glue (you could use a glue gun but I didn't wanna wait for it it heat up) to hook the end under the bottom of the bracelet---EASY!!! I would love to make more, but Emersyn has taken (and probably lost) the other 3 of the 4 pack of bracelets. Maybe one day I will do this again. I have not left my house since Easter, and I am actually looking forward to getting out of her to go to Wal-Mart today---I must be going house crazy to WANT to go grocery shopping!!!
