Quack Quack...Happy Easter!

Here are some pictures from the past week or so. When my mom was here last weekend, we thought it was funny to pull Annabel's sweat pants up and call her an old man... cruel I know. She thought it was hilarious! Notice how she has one Croc on... the girl is obsessed with shoes.

I just thought this was notice the white shoes (she's only allowed to wear these at home!:)

She's just so grown up in this pic.... cell phone in one hand and keys in the other. 16 here we come! 

I'm putting this picture on because both Annabel and my mom look like death warmed over! And I think it's funny!:)

Last but not least I made this little duck out of felt for Annabel's Easter basket, but she found it a little early:) She loves it. I used a free online tutorial from Nosey Nest blog. It was pretty easy, as I just worked on it for two evenings after Annabel went to bed. It is all hand-sewed using a blanket stitch. I also modified it a little...I couldn't fit the pocket on mine, so I just sewed a little tattoo on the butt instead. And I found some googly eyes in my craft stash (thanks grandma Gerry!) so I used those instead of beads. That's the fun of making a project, though- making it your own!

I knew when you took that picture it would be used against me. That's OK; I'm secure in my homeliness. BTW, why are you allowed to give A-bel a duck and we're not?
