Polkadaisies...custom birthday outfit

We are breaking out our winter coats and Little Miss Kenza will be putting on her custom Dora knot dress for her birthday party this weekend. Life in Naples Florida...much warmer than Tennessee!!!

I like the way Dora turned out. A little black, red, and white fabric along with a little paint and ta-dah!

big sis had to have a dress to wear to the party too :)

Sadie's designs 09'

We worked most of the day Friday, while everyone else was out shopping, organizing the playroom and Sadie decided to get a little crafty. She hung out with me while I was sewing and made this painted canvas. Can you tell she has a love for pink? I added the bow so we could hang it up for the holidays.
After she finished her canvas she decided to use one of the cardboard pieces from the inside of a bolt of fabric to make this sassy girl in heels. She is getting pretty creative with her resources.

The kids also got to decorate the Christmas tree that we put in the playroom. Rich and I did have to add some ornaments to the top. I had bought some big sparkly ball ornaments to put back in the holes of the tree and I had to explain to Gavin that they went in the holes, not out on the ends. Then, every time he came across a big ornament he would ask me if he had to put it in the hole. Ha ha!
I was in desperate need of a bookcase because there were books scattered all over our house. I couldn't take it any longer, so without heading out in the crazy madness of holiday shopping, I snagged an old bookcase out of the garage that Rich used for storage and made a cover to hide it's ugliness. Now, all of our books are either in the playroom (on a bookcase) or in the kids' rooms (on bookcases). Major accomplishment made here at our house!!!
While I was taking pictures, I thought I would add some of Sadie and Gavin's favorite books which are great gifts for Christmas.
Sadie's all time favorite book...Pinkalicious. She has learned to read easy books, but is no where close to reading this book. However, she will pretend to read this story and almost tells it word by word.
Gavin and Sadie both enjoy this book.
Another all time favorite...Alice the Fairy.
Gavin thinks this one is hilarious and tries to say it along with me.

Now that we have most of our Christmas decorations out, I will post some pictures of my favorites later on in the week. I hope everyone found lots of deals shopping this weekend!

The house boat

Rich and my dad have been working on our houseboat quite a bit the past week or so and me and the kids made a trip out there today to take a look. The lake is not much to look at this time of year, but seeing that our houseboat is on its way was real exciting!
I am so thankful for this...Rich is a great daddy and the kids adore him!

Gavin and Sadie hard at work

I adore my dad too!

This is the look that I love. It use to be the look I would get when he would see me coming. Now it's the look Sadie gets. Haha!

How many more days until summer?
