It all started when my dad sent the two big kids wallets. They filled them with ID cards they made themselves, school pictures of each other, and pretend money. Then Anna asked for a pair of sunglasses because the sun was getting in her "eyelashes" when we were in the car. Then she asked for chapstick of her very own. Every girl has got to have chapstick. With all this new-found girl booty, she didn't have a way to keep track of it all...especially when she was on the go. So last Friday, she and I had a girl's night out and she picked out some fabric and buttons so I could make her a purse. I used this darling tutorial from Cocoa and we were both very happy with the result.
That is, until things started going missing. Come to find out, Anna had been paying VERY close attention to the things that I had in my purse and decided that since she now had her own purse, she needed all those same things in hers, too. So, last night after she was in bed, I raided her purse. Aside from her wallet, her barbie cellphone, and 3 sets of Josh's plastic baby key toys, I found six tubes of chapstick, my digital camera, and nickel, a quarter, and the mailbox key.
We had a very long talk this morning about taking things that aren't ours without asking.
On a completely different note, last night I finished up a set of cards with some of my hoarded 7Gypsies paper. I needed some "just because " cards and this will fit the bill. I love the way they turned out.
And last but not least, more good news. Tony got his line number yesterday and it looks like he will be pinning on Major before the end of the year...much earlier than we had anticipated. We feel so blessed.
Have a great weekend everyone!
