Home again

While Disneyland isn't exactly my kind of a vacation, there were some highlights...

Completing Jedi training

Sharing (very reluctantly) cotton candy with your brother

Waiting for...

and finally, meeting the "real" Minnie Mouse.

I have so much sewing to do and I'm itching to get going. I'm making a bag for Jan's kindergarden teacher, a lap quilt for a neighbor, and three items for an order. Oh and Katya's somehow talked me into starting a princess dress for her (and I promised I wouldn't ge sucked into this princess stuff, but it's so hard to resist!). I was so inspired by these fairy parties and I am so going overboard for next year's birthday party!

We're off to the happiest place on earth until Friday. The kids are so excited, I wish I could say the same! It will be fun I'm sure; I just need to keep Katya away from those princess shops because I'm NOT spending my money on that stuff.

My beautiful boy just turned six a few weeks ago and I swear I love him more each day. So far, six is the best age yet (but I'm sure I say that every year!). We love you to pieces, little goose.

Hello world!

I've finally gotten my blog up and running (i.e., out of my head and into cyberspace!) thanks to my heroic husband who stayed up late to help his technophobic wife! I'm looking forward to recording little bits of my life as a stay-at-home mom and obsessive-compulsive sewer.
