Sweet Month of May Part 1

Sorry for the lack of posts. Here are the reasons why:

It all started with a sweet Mother's Day Tea. With muffins and fruit salad prepared by sweet little 4 year old hands:

They made these muffins in class that day!

And decorated the table for the mommies

My little mini-me

So proud!

I know! Adorable, isn't it?

This brought tears to my eyes!

Potted and planted with loving 4 year old hands. Still in bloom in our kitchen!

Then a week later, Skylar had her preschool graduation ceremony:

although we had a little problem participating in the school play...

Peyton loved watching her big sister!

In the meantime, in Deacon's 3's class, there was another play going on:

Where my little monkey was a sea horse...

...and best buddy Andrew was a crab!

Deacon's class had a picnic outside after the festivities:

My beautiful girls!

Hamming it up!

We had Skylar's end of the year picnic the next day:

This is why there has been a lack of posts lately. Part II is still coming. I will be better on the posts in June. I promise.

Pinkalicious + Purplicious.

My daughter Skylar is going nuts for these new books: Pinkalicious and it's sequel Purplicious by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann. Pink and Purple are her two favorite colors. In her 4 year old mind, who doesn't LOVE pink and purple? In fact, pink and purple should be the ONLY TWO colors in existence!

Here are some excerpts from the books:

"Pinkalicious can’t stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe — a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast. But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this pink predicament."

"In the next book, Pinkalicious is faced with a new dilemma. Pinkalicious must re-evaluate what she believes in when her classmates put down pink and choose black as the new cool color.

This delightfully illustrated book is a must-have for all the pinkerellas, pinkerbelles, and purple aficionados in your life."

So in honor of these two great books I have created Pinkalicious and Purplicious inspired Bouquet Headbands - much to Skylar's delight (she has already claimed them and they are now sitting safely on her side table).

Look at that big smile on her face!

Purplicious Bouquet Headband

They will both be available in my shop by tomorrow. So stop by and take a peek!
