You can tell by my lack of blogging that things have been crazy around here, and it's not over yet. But I'm hoping that things will settle down in November. (Did I just say that??? ...the holidays will be upon us...and that's always a busy time!)
Recently I've been working on some more bibs, and took some to a baby shower last night.
There were 2 events I needed cookies for on one day...so I made some sugar cookies. Miss K and a neighbor friend helped frost them...
These are our family's traditional Christmas cookie (cut in Christmas shapes...of course!). When I started frosting (before the girls showed up) I was listening to Christmas music as I got set up and started to frost the first few. I had just grabbed a CD to test out a boom box and it happened to be Christmas music. It was strangely familiar decorating sugar cookies to Christmas music, and just strange since I was frosting pumpkins and ghosts!
The neighbor girl said she had never frosted cookies before, and never made or had homemade cookies. Now that was sad to me! Glad she came over and got to participate!
I've also been sewing a vest for my son's vampire costume. The vest turned out great and looks perfect with the store bought vampire cape. But unfortunately it's really too small for my son. He can wear it, and already has to one event, but it really is too short. My lack of experience in sewing clothes stuck out with this one!
Miss K will be in her first play in November. I took her to get her character shoes on Saturday. She's practicing walking on them...she needs a lot of practice...she's pretty wobbly! But she looks so grown up in them!
