Soph's Easter Dress

 I found this tutorial on this blog and I was smitten! I had to make something special like that for Soph. So the next festive occasion she could wear this to would be Easter. This is my first time using fabric covered buttons and I am hooked. It looks beautiful and classy. It's on the back of the dress, but I couldn't get any pictures of it. Soph is pretty fast at getting away when you want her to be still for the moment. The stripe fabric was something either from Joanns Red Tag clearance or Walmart and the green pok-a-dot is a thrift store sheet. So overall so cheap!
Her foyer runway!

Holy hot-cakes, my mom's got skills!!! Yes, that's what she said!

Happy 6th!

I've been a parent to you for 6 years now. Yikes!! I feel so old sometimes. Raising children is hard! Alright this post is about you not me... Right now the happenings in your life are:

* You love Math, you are doing 1st grade math very well even though you are in K
* You love to get in your sister's face and frustrate her
* You'd watch TV all day if we let you
* Sometimes you ask for mozzeralla sticks for breakfast
* You love spending the night at your cousins
* You love camo, dinosaurs, soda, and stalling at bedtime
* You are a great reader
* You are starting to talk back to us, everything we say has a rebuttal
* You delight in my cooking  

You are such a blessing to our lives. We love you so much and hope that as you continue to grow that we will be able to grow with you too!

I know this is late, but better than never!
