Holy Cow, Batman!

This is one guy who can do it all…he sings the theme song “A Whole New World” (male and female parts) all by himself…and it’s pretty good. Kind of creepy to see a guy who sounds better than some women when they sing, but then again…who am I to judge? What do you think?

I’m in a Holidaze…

Since the moulin rouge (okay, money) is pretty tight around here these days (don’t tell anyone, but I actually squeak when I walk now), we are giving handmade gifts for the holidays. A couple of weeks ago, I was in the process of making some top-secret goodies and with the help of my craft-loving kids, we have continued with the projects.

Before I go any further…if you are reading this and your name happens to be Lulu, STOP READING now unless you want to know what you are getting for Christmas. Shoo. Just go on now…aren’t the Cowboys playing on tivo???

I decided to make things that were practical (aprons, appliqued towels, coasters, etc) this year because…well, because it’s hard to make something impractical with no money. So there you have it. I sewed this up tonight and used one of the flowers I made a couple of weeks ago on the front just for fun. In case you can’t tell, (what does that say about my sewing prowess?) it’s a grocery bag dispenser. I found the idea on Dioramarama’s website.

A little long, you say? Well, this WAS my first one to sew…but it’s not as long as it looks. However, this little gal holds a ton Wal*Mart sacks…okay, well, technically, not a ton, but a BUNCH. They were fun to make and super-duper easy. So if you know me, you probably know what you’re getting for Christmas. I’ll be posting some more of the other things we are making as time permits. So many things to do and so little time to get it done! 🙂

She is NOT my favorite…

Did somebody say something about birthday pictures? I’ve decided that after looking at these photos, I need a new digital camera…and maybe some photography lessons. Yeah, that’s it…

Wake up, already! It’s your birthday, girl! (and yes, I’m a bad mom, she went to bed with her CLOTHES on…gasp!)

The much-coveted Winnie the Pooh cupcake cake.

We are very happy with our much-coveted Winnie the Pooh cupcake cake, so much so that we don’t even notice the balloon that is about to strangle us!

We aren’t so crazy about the cake once the candles are lit…that’s fire and mom, if you’ve told me once, you told me a hundred times to stay away from fire…so I’ll just let big brother blow out the candles, if that’s alright.

What do you mean don’t eat the frosting off all the cupcakes?

Hey, guys, just so you know, I’m three and I really don’t need help opening my presents anymore.

You would think my mom would have bought some birthday paper..what is this Anne Geddes stuff doing on my birthday present???

Hey, hands off, buddy. It’s mine.

Maybe when I’m four, they’ll listen. Sheesh, you’d think it was THEIR birthday or something.

Play-doh is my FAVORITE.

Hey, hey…get outta this shot…this is my 15 minutes, buddy.

My grandma taught me how to put my fingers together to make “three”.

I had a great day…thanks for coming to my party, everyone!

Oh sheesh…alright. One photo with all of us. Are you people happy now?
