Celebrating Lillian

Lillian has had many accomplishments this week. She started with the completion of a 150 piece and a 100 piece puzzle.





Then, she finished her tennis lessons with the YMCA. She received a medal for her effort and learned several new skills to help her play tennis. I really noticed an improvement in the few weeks she practiced.



Last of all, she graduated from kindergarten Friday. Her class performed a piece about promising to read and then walked across stage to receive diplomas and have their tassels moved.

A Few of His Favorite Things


I'm always sewing something for Lillian- a dress, a skirt, a bag, something. Lucas kinda gets nothing because the options of sewing for boys are few and far between. Some ideas just don't fit the rough and tumble kid he really is! I got the idea to make a small quilt for him after seeing ideas for I Spy quilts on etsy.com. My idea evolved to a quilt of things Lucas really enjoys at the age of 2. I backed it with flannel I already had and tacked a few of the corners. Ta-da! He now calls this his "big blankie" and likes sleeping with it and using it on the couch when he watches a movie.
