Tutu cute!

I just won a bow holder (maybe it will keep the bows out of D.'s hair!) from Bambina Ballerina. Tricia does such great work and we had a hard time deciding which style to get but this is the one that appealed to all of us. It doesn't match a thing in either girls' room but it's so pretty. I found out about the giveaway at Bloggy Giveaways. If you haven't seen her blog, get over there quick. You might just be a winner like me!

All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go

Look what happens when my back is turned!!
The girls decided to dress D. up.
They will only be able to do this while he is smaller than they are...

new edit: at least I know everything is fair game to them.

My wish list

Isn't this lovely?
I think I have to have one of these prints.
After all, I have three little darlings...

And while I'm making a list, here are a few others.

I like the Lily Pulitzer pink enamel cuff because it has a little bee on it.
And as my kiddies know, I am the Queen Bee!

Self Feeding

Okay, I would looooovvee to keep a clean house. But how can you when you have children and dogs? D. is intent on feeding himself. And I suppose in the grand scheme of things, I have to let him do it. It's just that every meal ends up like this.

la dee da dee, it's birthday time

Sweet little S. just had her 3rd birthday! It's been stretched out to become her birthday week - I don't blame her. Heretofore, she's only had 2 in her lifetime. She had a little party at school on Tuesday and a few of the girls in her class come over on Wednesday to share in S.'s princess tea party. We had such a fun time, it was very low key and all the girls had fun. I really enjoy their mother's company also so it felt more like a big playdate rather than the party anxiety I usually get. The girls decorated paper plate crown, paper plate purses and fans. They each took home a little porcelain tea set whose cups are as big as thimbles. It's probably a big choking hazaard and I'm sure they'll break a piece before the month is out but it was amusing for them.

I invited Polly Pocket and all of her accessories into our house so D. has his choice of choking hazards now. Still, the girls are happy and like to spread out ALL of the toys so they can see them in one fell swoop. They have the nerve to complain when D. bear crawls over to take a look. He can only withstand the temptation for about 30 seconds.

This morning we have 25 balloons who've lost their helium lying on the floor and the detrius of a child's birthday party scattered about. For those of you who wonder what I do while both girls are in preschool, the list varies between laundry, vacuuming, mopping and dishes. :)
