Lilo Hits Double Figures!

How is it possible that I now have 5 children in double figures?!?!

Last Wednesday Lilo turned 10!


Did you hear me?

I can't quite believe that my baby girl is 10!!!!

It only seems like a blink since I was praying she would be born

and boy was she keeping me waiting ~ 3 weeks late!!
(2 months)

Seems she was chilled about being born ~ lazy even ~ and she is possibly still one of my lazier children, but also one of my most easy come-easy going.
(1 yr)

She fits in to whatever we're doing, and seldom fusses about anything;

She plays for hours in her own company (and that of her imaginary folks)

but is equally at home in a hub-bub of happenings and a crowd of people.

She is a loyal friend and is very sweet natured.

My dizzy little blondie ~ I love you VERY much!! :D

Oh ~ and just for fun... here's one of Chip enjoying some birthday cake!

Mondrian & Not very much else..!

First things first ~ our Arty blog bit...

Last week's study was Pete Mondrian ~ he did paint an eclectic mix of styles, but is arguably most famous for his blocks of colour, so that's what we went with (and, of course, it's the easiest to do too!)

So here's this week's offerings - which look rather fabulous all collaged together!...

Above, as you read; Minnie, Lilo, TP, Taz, Stitch, DD
Below is mine.

Tot-School ... (just a snippet) involved playing with the 'moonsand'. We haven't had this out for a LONG while as it is SO messy, but Chip thoroughly enjoyed playing with it and did so for a very long time ~ so I guess it was worth it! :D

MInnie has spent a good deal of the last two weeks making these ~ entirely by hand ~ for sale at church, to raise money for our Youth Mission Fund. If they sell well, she is considering setting up an Etsy shop...
