How much fun! My Mom and Dad (Mimi and Gandaddy) came to visit us in Mississippi yesterday. We were super excited to see them and actually enjoy the visit since I wouldn't be working. We had a fun filled day today and thought we would share some photos!
First of all, for any sewers that may read my blog - you will understand this. I was PUMPED because my Mom was bringing in my Grandmother's serger for me to use, this is super great for brownie-goose and all of the other sewing that I do. Needless to say, for anyone who has ever sewn with a serger I am sure that you know how finicky the machines are.........so needless to say, I needed a tutorial before the temper tantrums began! I took a break to make some coffee and Louisa took my seat next to her Mimi. I just love this picture! Too bad I couldn't have my Grandmother in it so that we could have 4 generations of sewers! I know she would be proud.
While Lula napped, Gandaddy put together her kitchen that they got her for Christmas that we have been waiting for forever! She was so happy to see it when she woke up! She loved to "cook" on it and open all the compartments, and best off.............it comes with a phone that has a clip that she can hook on her belt. Seriously! Aunt Sandy also topped it off with a Betty Crocker apron set that has an apron, mitts, wooden spoon (sorry Claudia and By) and oven mitts. She was loving this, especially once we added in her princess shoes. Words sometimes cannot even explain this child. Mom, Dad, Byron and I all enjoyed a great laugh!
I bought a bird feeder this summer and just got around to putting it up the other day. Louisa and I have been enjoying watching the birds come eat. She looks out the window and screams "hey burdees, eat." Well, Gandaddy decided to make some birdfeeders from pine cones and peanut butter......here are some pictures of her helping.
Best of all, here is Mallard (who loves pine cones anyway) thinking....."Whoa, peanut butter covered pine cones, YAY!"
