busy times = happy times

Little A, my youngest niece on my side of the family turned 2 last month!  If the baby is getting older that means the whole family is getting older.  Notice Reader how I include everyone, and not just mention myself. Back to my niece, she is just the most lovable child you will ever meet.  She will always greet you with a smile and is extremely compassionate towards everyone; all this at the tender age of 2.  For her birthday I made her an elephant.  Yes I know reader I have a thing for elephants but this was to be different.  This was to be my first purple elephant.  Patty came out just as cute as can be.  Ah Dang it, I named another one.  Well I let Patty know it was time to go to her new home and she was definitely excited.

You see Patty didn't care all that much for Kitty but dear Kitty found Patty to be soft and cuddly, the perfect pillow to lie upon.  Patty decided Kitty's love was a bit too much and couldn't wait to be cuddled by Little Miss A.  I can't blame Patty, at times Kitty can be a bit overzealous and I know Patty will be just fine in her new home.

Mommy also celebrated her birthday.  It was grand affair as we celebrated with dinner and desserts at my house.  I'm happy to report the kids devoured their meals.  They never knew they were eating healthy as I used whole wheat flour for the chicken tenders and baked the french fries.  HA!   Come cake time we went all out! Hubby made two types of homemade ice cream, Hazelnut and Mint Chocolate Chip just for the occassion.  The kids loved it and when I told them it was homemade everyone was surprised!

With all the birthday fun I was still able to find time to complete another successful swap.  I participated in a fun coin purse swap and I created a fun little purse for my partner.  

Based on her profile she liked giraffees and monkeys and I found this cute print.  It is a bit larger than a true coin purse but I decided fun things might just be a bit bigger and will need storage space.  I enclosed a Quarter since its a coin purse and some new types of tea for her to try.  I really hope she likes it.  I'm thinking of making one for myself.  Just a little fun purse to pull out of my bag during a tough day at work and smile when I've found my hidden gems.   I'm sure we could all use such a bag.

Before I close, I wanted to share a picture of Little Miss Middle A.  She is heading to kindergarten next week where she'll learn to read and write her ABCs.  I'm so excited for her and I hope she has a wonderful first day just like her big sister did!
