While we were away celebrating 11 years of marriage, my kids were busy spending time with their Aunt Ashley. Not sure what goes on here exactly while I'm gone but it must be fun cause Maggie said , "I had so much fun that I forgot to call you!" when I got home. Thanks honey...I
could hardly go to sleep I missed you so much didn't miss you a bit.
One thing I'm sure happened? This...
Maggie learned how to crochet!
These are just a few from her collection. I personally love the ones with beads. Maggie is so much more creative than her mother. Obviously Aunt Ashley is too. She can even french braid! Dang. I keep losing "coolness" points to my little sister. Maybe
little miss cool pants Aunt Ashley should get her rear back here to help me with these 2 shoe boxes Valentines Mailboxes I'm supposed to have bedazzled by Thursday. I just know I hear them mocking me when I walk by. And tonight when I came home from Wal-Mart with a glue-gun in tow, I swear I heard a snicker. What? You think I'm kidding?
My girl has mastered what she was taught...she can even do it without looking! I can't explain the way her face lit up when I asked her if she thought she could make 15 of her gorgeous bracelets for my Believing God bible study. As a mom, it makes my heart smile to see that she has a little something under her belt that brings her so much joy and pride in herself. Something to call her 'thing.' Next time Aunt Ashley comes she will teach her to layer more onto that. I have a feeling she may need her own Etsy shop before this is over.
Maybe she can pay my way to Blissdom next year.
My daughter then decided to pay it forward to her deprived of the craft gene mom and teach me what she had learned. I told her I was hopeless. She insisted I wasn't. Things were going great...I was well on my way to making my very own bracelet. Except I got slightly carried away showing off my new mad skills and ended up making something else. A belt.
It was off the hook.
