My newest project - Tutu's

My newest creation -Tutu's! Amy loves these ballerina tutu's and lives in them here at the house, dancing around like my little sugar plum fairy. I've made matching ones for her doll too and they are just so darn cute!

My brave toothless boy

I'm not sure if he is masochistic or just crazy! My oldest has 3 teeth in the front that are loose at the same time and I know that they have been quietly driving him nuts. Last night he sits himself down at the kitchen table and tells Papi to "Pull it out"

After lots of tugging and taking breaks and both of us asking repeatedly..."are you sure you want to do this?" Nicolas' little wiggly tooth finally popped out. My sensitive boy who can't even stand to skin his knee withstood his tooth being pulled out without even a tear.

My kids never cease to amaze and surprise me. He was so proud of himself and I have a sneaking suspicion that this has everything to do his teachers "lost tooth club" where you get a sticker and your name up on the board. I am more and more convinced that he has a crush on his first grade teacher.

cute cute cute kid leg warmers

Baby Legs are all the craze around the little girls right now and they are so darn cute! However I just can't justify spending $12-$15 on a pair of leg warmers right now. Amy really wanted a pair so I tried my hand at making them myself and I have to admit they turned out great! As Amy told me "they are soooo freakin cute!" (ok, i've got to start watching my words around her)
They remind me of the 80's ! But really they are great to keep little legs warm during the fall and winter. They go great with skirts, dresses, even under your pants. My son has even requested a "boy" pair to wear under his costume for halloween.
They were a big hit today and I am off to make some more in different styles.......will update later. Here are pictures of what I have done so far (pictures don't do them justice).....let me know what you think!! I already have an order from a friend to make some....I'd happily make more!

How will the majority of America be represented if the Majority of America doesn't vote!!

Leo Wants You to Vote
Leo Wants You to Vote

I could go into my political rant but those of you who know me, know how I feel about this election. So I'll go into my VOTE rant instead! More importantly then who you are voting for is that you acctually vote!!! It makes me angry, sick, frustrated to know that so many americans give up this right. We live in one of the greatest countries in the world with freedoms and rights that many others in the world dream about - give their lives trying to atain.

As Americans it is not just our right but our responisbility to be informed and to use this information to become part of the process.

There is so much uncertainty in our country right now and Iunderstand feeling discouraged and afraid -i know there are times when i am. But this is AMERICA! the land of hopes and dreams and possibilities.....we've gotten lazy in our properity. We sit and watch the television and complain and whine about how bad it has gotten.....nothings going to change unless we all stand up and make our voice heard.

VOTE ! VOTE for Change!
