Katie's special day

Last night, I put Katie's hair up in rag curlers. Yep, strips of material that you roll the hair around and tie the ends. We did it Tuesday night and she loved it but wanted to try it again with more curls, so we put more in. Woke up this morning and took them out and HELLO 1988! She is growing out some of her bangs for ballet so those short pieces of hair really curled up. We calmed the crazy curls a bit and I got to go celebrate her special day with her at school. She wanted to take yogurt parfaits so we got strawberries, blueberries and yogurt and granola cereal and did whipped cream and hot pink sprinkles to make it special day special. Here is a movie of the kids singing to her:

Meet Marlo


Marlo is a little resin cat that 'hangs' off of things. We adopted him from the impulse buy section of ACMoore (isn't that whole store impulse buy anyway?) and have invented a little Where's Waldo game.

Rules: Marlo must be hanging on something, not hidden inside anything.

We take turns hiding and spying Marlo, which is also pretty funny to Maggie. In this game, Marlo hitched a ride on a remote control car and Maggie would 'catch' the cars as they drove past her.

In other fun family news, we are about all better from the fun virus that invaded our house, Maggie is walking with a walker, Katie recently counted to 100 and we are getting ready for Katie's parent-teacher conference. I also made a pattern for a crochet cradle purse that I'll have to post a picture of. Didn't like most of the free patterns on the internet and what else could I do while sick this weekend. = )
