missing aunt sissy

isn't she pretty? i miss her face and her help and her movie quoting self! it has been quite sad to not have her around... it was such a treat to have my little sis live with us over the past 3 months. (not only for child care but also for our relationship)

she had the crazy idea of going to breakfast in our pajamas on thursday.. so we got up and threw on our slippers and went around the corner to have a great breakfast...

i'm so glad sara got to spend so much time with her!

we will miss her... but i am so proud of her and can't wait to see what happens next!

i sewed a few Christmasy things this week... take a peek...

and you know there is a toddler in your house when you find this...

oh, Jesus in a tea cup!

my new toy

i know you all have been wondering what i am doing with all of my new found free time (yeah right, huh?) .... well yesterday i accomplished so much... i worked on a couple sewing projects for myself and sara (will post later), had coffee and lunch with my sis, washed and put back on my sheets (the whole making the bed after washing the sheets thing gets me every time!), helped my hubby study for an exam (ask me anything about the Model Rules and a lawyer's professional responsibility and i might be able to answer), ordered Christmas cards, and began taking apart the mile high pile of laundry sitting in my bedroom...
and i have been spending time learning how to work this thing....

yes, my sweet and thoughtful husband gave me this for graduation.. along with some flowers and a cheesy yard sign! i have been taking way too many pictures of nothing...

my sweet model... sara was in bed... and i had to practice!

love, love, love this little girl!

i will take some pictures of my sewing and post soon...
hope you are doing well

today was such a sweet day.
it was the end of a wonderful experience. i was really blessed to be under such a great teacher and now a great friend.
today the students had a surprise "going away" party for me. (so many of them think i am moving...even after much explanation... its hilarious!) I was given handmade cards, sweet letters begging me to stay and many dollar store gems! they were so thoughtful and really cute. I will miss my days with them...

but can't wait to sleep in, hang out with sara in our pj's and sew!
