Sweet Boy

On Friday I picked my son up from preschool. I love hearing what the teachers have to say each day. He is doing so well and adjusted very quick to preschool. Thankfully, we haven't had any problems and have heard all good things about him from the teachers. As we were leaving one of the teachers from the other preschool class told me sweet story that took place on the playground a week ago. She said my son was waiting in line to get on the monkey bars. A girl was on the bar in front of him and when she leaned her head back her hair fell in her face. My son walks up and moves the hair out of her face and told her she was pretty. Such a sweet thing to say!!

Knot Dress - attempt #2

I've attempted my own design of the Knot Dress tonight. I downsized the pattern quite a bit since the other one was way too big. Hoping it fits my daughter!! The embroidery designs are from Lynnie Pinnie ( Thought they were perfect for a fall outfit. The little pumpkin is on the top back of the dress, which may not have been the brightest idea on my part since my daughter has long hair and will most likely cover the design, unless I put it up. Oh well! Hope to have modeling pictures tomorrow.

Knot Dress

I've see a lot of knot dresses lately and didn't have a pattern for one, so I drew up my own pattern. This was my first attempt and turned out way too big for my daughter, so it may go up in my etsy store. I'll be making a smaller one soon for my daughter to wear this fall.

New Baby Set

I joined a MOPS (Mother of PreSchoolers) group this month and one of the ladies from the group ordered a baby set for a baby shower she is attending in October. The expecting couple are fans of Purdue, so we put together a Purdue baby set for the gift. She liked it so much she ordered an embroidered onesie for her daughter, which I'll have to show soon.

Playing with friends....

Thursday, while my son was at preschool, my daughter and I went to the playground to meet up with some friends. Since my son is gone 1/2 day three days a week I'm trying to get out some with my daughter so she can play with some kids around her age. We all had fun and my friend got some awesome pictures of my daughter and her girls. Aren't these the best pictures!!?? Now, which ones should I print??? I'm a big fan of the black and white ones!!

What are they up to???

Deep in thought!

1st Day of Preschool

Today was the first day of preschool for my 4 year old son. My husband was out of town yesterday and wasn't going to make it home in time to take my son to school this morning, so I had to take him. I wasn't looking forward to dropping him off because I was afraid he was going to latch onto me and not let go.......he hasn't always done well when we leave him at church, so I was expecting the same routine. It was a wonderful surprise this morning when he was all happy before school and even when I left him at school. The hardest part this morning was getting him to eat his breakfast (I'm guessing he was a little nervous!!). I had to force him to drink his smoothie this morning and he wouldn't touch anything else. He usually eats a ton in the morning, so this was a big surprise. The next hardest part was getting my 2 year old out of his classroom. She wanted to stay and play! Here are a few pics (in revers order)... of course little miss 2 year old had to hop in most of them! :-)
