All About the Princesses!

For Alex, a day at Disneyland was all about the princesses (and shopping and food, of course!)... we didn't go on one ride, but we met lots of royalty, heard lots of stories, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

A Sleep-Over

Alex and Jack wanted to have a sleep-over (and I use the term loosely!) at my house night. We had all sorts of ideas for today: Disneyland, kayaking, etc. - but they were having so much fun climbing on the furniture and exploring the nooks and crannies of a "different" house that the appeal of NOT getting dressed was too great. We "hung out" at home and had great good fun! (And I averted a potential disaster: "Look, Jack!" Alex said, gazing up at my loft. "We can play walk-the-plank!" "Oh, no you don't" I responded. "That's too dangerous!" "But I want to! Wendy did, and she had fun!" "Yes, but she had Peter Pan to take care of her, and you don't!" Sigh. Creative, yes, but with NO sense of consequences!

Peter Pan Pajamas at last!

Still unable to find Peter Pan fabric for Jack, I finally made a plain pair of pajamas, downloaded some Peter Pan images onto a transfer, and then ironed them onto the pajamas. Jack was thrilled! He insisted I take a picture of the BACK of his pajama top, as well as the front!) Alex, of course, had to have yet another Princess nightie. The "Pajama Factory" is now closed, however - I've put away sewing machine and table, at least for a while!
