Bug, Boo & Brother

Elephant ear fashions

My sweet Bug is a ball of energy. Creative and physical. Busy busy busy.

She went outside and picked some leaves. She sewed a dress and hat for her American Girl doll.


~I broke down & searched Craigsl*st for a crib. I knew I wanted a sleigh style which are out of my budget right now. I scored a beautiful crib for (drumroll...) $50!!!!!!!!!!!! It is pecan color, with a couple scratches but I am going to re-do it in white to match Boo's crib. I looked online and the same crib cost $500!!!

GO MOMMY :) It has the beautiful solid sleigh sides, and a pretty legs. I am so excited.

~When we were driving to get the crib Boo says "Mama, baby sisa come home now?" (Awwww! ) I said "No baby not today , but soon" She goes 'MAMA NOW!" I wish baby, I wish :)

~It was so cold the other night we still had ice in the pond, at 10 am. Crazy!

~My Peanut gets his full arm cast off today!!!! He will have a short cast for 3 more weeks :) Almost done :)

~Bugs pictures come in this Saturday, I had the day wrong. Bummer.
