This is a pencil topper kit from American Girl- gotta keep those pencils cozy.
I started one off for Alani, but she insisted my mom help her, because she said she had been sewing longer than me and therefore was a better "sewer", than my lesser number of years. ha ha ha
Alani, Blake and my mom baked cookies while I held the baby in my arms and watched "The Devil Wears Prada", with my Gramma.
The best feeling in the world is holding a sleeping baby in your arms.
Sometimes we all need a day to "re-boot", to rest, to take a break from all the stressful things and thoughts of the week.
I had no idea how relaxing it would be just to spend the day at my Gramma's. We laughed, watched movies, ordered pizza, I had a make-over from Alani and Blake, maybe I'll post the pictures tomorrow- it was quite "transformational"...
Sometimes no matter how old you are, going back to your parents or grandparents house and spending the day with them, makes you feel like all the world's troubles can't bother you, when you're in the presence of the ones who have always made everything safe for you.
My Gramma's house always makes me feel peaceful. It feels like a little cozy place in the world, with all the things I have remembered since I was little. Her mexican pottery cookie jar, all her little figurines and things I've seen all my life.
We all watched Peter Pan as we ate Pizza. Jordan and his cousin, had come home from their journey snowboarding...
I'm sure other people did way more exciting things than me...but it was an amazing day to me.
Typing this with Blakey on my lap and Elyse trying to help me type too- I've deleted lots of extra "words" she's typed....ha ha ha
