Sweet Blair

My Gabby Girl :-)

I love these sweet and silly Girls! So glad
 that we all met through New Haven several 
years ago and that we've managed to keep in
 touch.  Athough we are all at different schools
 now. Adore the kiddos and their Mom's too!

1st Visit from Clairette The Tooth Fairy


Gabby came home from school today
 and she had lost her 1st tooth.  Wow, this
 is no doubt a sign that our little is growing
 up.... Sniff Sniff.    She was so excited and
 said that she had fallen on the playground
 and she caught it in her hand.  All her 
friends were excited for her!  It was so sweet
 to hear all the parents say the next day 
"Oh, we heard about Gabby losing her 1st tooth"! 

After she went to bed I was really bummed that

 I hadn't made her the tooth pillow that I wanted

 to make her.  So, after she was fast asleep in

 bed I decided I was going to make her pillow

 but without any perfection. We didn't have time

 for that! Tooth Fairy ain't got time for that! HA!!

So I used Stitch Witchery with a scrap of Vintage

 sheet, Fabric, Stuffing, Fringe Pom Poms, and

 Ric- Rac.  Then a letter from the tooth fairy, 

$5 dollars, and lots of glitter. And we were all

 ready for the Tooth Fairy visit ;-) Oh but wait

 the Tooth Fairy needed a name so I called

 her Clairette. 

She ran in and woke me up this morning 
saying "Mommy, look what the Tooth Fairy
left me!"  She was so excited :-)  We walked
 in her room and read the letter from
 Clairette. She was so excited she said "
 See Mommy, I told you all tooth fairies
have names and mine is Clairette"  
It really is the little things that we delight
 in.  I love that Gabby has a wonderful
imagination. We decided that $5 for her 1st and
 Last tooth.  All other tooths she will get $1. 

Happy Fall Y'all


Pumpkin Patch Fun!
A sweet friend of ours was in town 
taking pictures and had a pumpkin 
session available .  Although, I was 
not feeling well we didn't want to 
pass up the chance to get some 
photos by Sara at Captureyou by Sarah.

I was so excited for Gabby to wear
 her new Fox dress that Grandma made her. 

I adore this shot of Gabby.  She poses like 
this alot! And she's not always looking at
the camera so it captured a real 
moment. She loved climbing over all
the pumpkins :-)

This has to be the goofiest looking
 Scarecrow ever!

My Most Favorite! That's our Gabby 
girl! I love pumpkins and fall weather

Hello October!

a little smooch right before we left.

Thanks so much for taking the pics
Sarah! You are so talented and such a

School Pumpkin Patch Trip

My lil red head was all Smiles! 
I had so much fun volunteering for the 
Pumpkin Patch field trip.  These kiddos 
were all fired up and ready for some fun. 
They were mostly excited about riding the 
bus out to the country.  They feed the animals, 
played in the dark hay maze, rode in a hayride,
and ran around the pumpkin patch with lots
of laughs and giggles.

I managed to get this pic of Gabby's 
Sweet friend

I asked for a pose and this is exactly
 what I got from her.  It's like old hollywood
 meets the farm girl! Love it !

Standing in line with her class.

It went by so quickly and they were
back on the bus and waving good-byes to us
parents.  I almost wanted to cry because this 
really symbolized how big they are getting and 
growing up! But then as I felt sad I also felt joy 
that She was old enough to be a Big girl and have her 
own adventures. I would have loved to have a peek
on that bus and listen to all their little
