Tea Party- 7 years old

She's been going since she was 4... This time was a little more relaxing than all the others... We had fun and spent exactly the right amount of time there... I loved seeing all the pictures of Kylie smiling... It's not as easy to get pictures of real smiles with her, but she was totally happy and having a great time! Sugar cubes, as always, were a HUGE hit, and the girls emptied the bowl (all but 3 which they took home)... Kylie had 2 cups of coffee and LOVED the banana bread again... It was incredible how fast it disappeared!!! Ari, suprisingly, loved the rye bread that the cucumber sandwiches were on... Kylie picked out a pill box with pink and pearls on top for her gift this year... She's showed it to daddy and other people since so it is a treasure! :) And, it didn't rain this time!!!

I scrapped!

I saw a kid's book named Feathers at the library the other day... It had the quote from Emily Dickinson about hope... Well, I have seen and loved that quote from her in the past, and I just had to somehow use it... So, I used these pictures of Ari (not feathers, but wings...kinda close, right?)

It's been a long time, but I finally finished a page! I have been in love with Maria W's pages lately, and I had to lift one (maybe more in the near future! :) Anyway, here's what I did using mostly TaylorMade goodies!! Click on the image for full credits...
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul
- and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.

Back from PA

We went to Pennsylvania for a week and got back yesterday... Jeremy and Nicole (Jason's cousin and wife) went with us for the weekend to ride the dirt bikes and camp one night... It was really fun, but too short... Jas left on Sunday evening. Mom had the week off; so, it was nice to have some extra time with her! I got to take pictures for two families on Monday and Tuesday! Both were really fun-except for the rain during the first one! :) The girls loved playing with DeAnna's 4 year old twins!! Wednesday was spent visiting with my cousins. Michelle and her 3 boys came down to have a bonfire and run around together. Then we went to Andy and Susan's where the girls got to collect eggs (ari thought the eggs were chocolate eggs at the store just a week or two ago... she got to see that they were brown there... :) When Susan told Ari to put the egg in the can, Ari dropped it from about a foot up... oops!! :) Then, we played a game for a while... Thursday, we went with Grandpa and Mom to the park in Franklin for the penny carnival!!! It was really fun even though it was chilly and rainy... The girls got to play a bunch of games and get a little prize at each one... Ari played the one with the creepy finger prize 3 times... she was so happy! They rode ponies and loved it! They also had a petting zoo with a pig, llamas, emus, kittens (Kylie's favorite- she wanted to hold the lively one, not the sleeping one), bunnies, birds (one totally flapped in Ari's face)... Then, we all ate at Pizza Hut. It was fun, but very busy... I am really excited to be home again too... We had a pretty bad day today, but it ended well with fireworks and a snack/ shoe throwing fight... more about that in another post... :)
You can see some new pics on my photo blog! :)
