2 Paci's

I have been trying to capture this moment for a while.

As soon as Cooper is put in his car seat... this is what he does (it makes me laugh every time)
Why settle for one paci when you can have two :)

 Yes! The Jolly Roger... now we can have pirate fights
 Pete the Cat I can read books
 New clothes from Omi
 She is the World's Best Sister
 Check out those stripe shorts
 Necklace beads
 Oh wow! The beauty chair (and swim suit set) for her American Girl doll Ruthie
 And finally a new bike
 We celebrated with homemade ice cream cake topped with M&M's

Happy Birthday Grandma Nichols

To celebrate a fabulous woman on her birthday, the kids decided to honor her by making 3 fleece blankets (one for each Sparkle) to share with her sewing mission Sewing Hands.

Now 3 special children will have blankets of their own!

Happy Birthday Grandma. We love you!
