We are spending a couple of weeks here at my parents home. I plan on making it a computer free two weeks to try to soak up all I can of my family and the summer. Although, I already am looking forward to when I get home to catch up on what you all will have been up to! :) Until then, blog on.
Oh, (because some of you asked) both pairs of Libby's shoes from the prepster post are from Garnet Hill. The boots were a birthday gift from Aunt Mimi. (we like shoes instead of toys for birthday gifts)!

This is one of my favorite tops purchase from Old Navy. It inspired me to look for a knit top similar to this. Unfortunately, I have had zero luck finding a pattern, so decided to play will my own needles, yarn and tape measure.
Ha! I promise it will not stay in the form of a bra/bathing suit top! I plan on doing some sort of lace on the bottom. This is definitely not my color. But, since I am just playing around, I decided to use something from my stash. Hopefully I will be able to accomplish what I have in mind.

Look at all this loot! Of course, the chocolate frogs were the first to go, although he did share one with Andrew. The rest he said is his, all his. Even the Harry sweater. Darn!
Thanks a million Felicia! You really made our day!

It is really great when the rain forces creative play at our house. The kids set up shops throughout the house, each with their own individual theme.
Andrew had a sporting goods store. He collected anything from balls to racquet's to bobble heads. Priced everything on his own. I guess it never hurts to dream big. Charlie raided the kitchen for candy for his candy shop. He also priced things pretty high. Dum dums for $1. He also was asking $1 for Hershey kisses. I'll tell you, it was a very expensive candy shop.

It really is a special bag. Each little print has a memory to it, that I will be reminded of every time I look at the bag. I do regret one thing. Not using the bumble bee dress. Honestly. I would have really loved to have had that fabric in this bag, and not tucked away in a box.
The first thing Libby said was " I love it! I cant' wait to take it to college!". She is 9 years old. Already packing for college! I just hope that one day (way after college) she finds it packed in a box and thinks of it as a treasure. I think she will, she already does.
