Where did the week go?

Has it really been a week since I've checked in here? Wow! I just pulled our weeks pictures off of my phone, so let me fill you in. My Maddie learned to crochet, and she is now making mile long chains into bracelets, necklaces, headbands, and belts. :)

I cast on this headband that I have been wanting to try for a while. I call it my buttonhole headband. If anyone is interested in the pattern I could jot it down for ya.

We let Claire play in mashed taters for the first time...

She really really liked it!!

We had a lock-in at the church where we got no sleep and had a rockin' shaving cream fight the next morning... got messier and messier as it went on...

...see what I mean. There were no children harmed in the making of this lock-in -Thank God in Heaven! We all survived, but just barely for the adults present.

This is the after-lock-in-crash.....

(No worries, daddy was right there)

..that took down the whole family...

...not one was left standing...

....even daddy, he just happened to wake-up first, that's how it was documented. :)

Tonight I was doing a little practice design for our homeschool henna-art lesson coming up. I bought a kid-safe kit that we will be using this week, I can't wait! I've never done henna before, but I have always wanted to! I'll let you know how it goes. xo, Sam

PS. Claire and I were honored to be on The Old Fashioned Baby Blog, Jeannie let Claire model her beautiful bonnet at market! We love her. :)

What fun to have at church!

I saw Clair on Jeannie's site. Such a pretty girl in a gorgeous bonnet.

Cheap shaving cream has a wide variety of uses. Looks like they had fun. Maddie looks so sweet crocheting on the porch. Claire is adorable in that bonnet and I would love the pattern for the headband. Y'all have a great week.
