As I was trying to clean up a bit this morning (in anticipation of friends coming for a visit), I realized I never blogged about Emma's crayon roll. I made this several months ago from a tutorial at Skip to my Lou. I remember when my 2 oldest girls were little, I saw these at an arts and crafts show. I really wanted to make one, but never got around to doing it. I'm so glad I found this blog and finally made a crayon roll. It was very fast and easy and Emma just loves it. Wouldn't these make cute gifts for little ones for Christmas or birthdays?

The tower where the girls slept.The stairs leading to the tower.Mary with some of her camp friends.Everyone should visit this beautiful, magical place.
This year I also made her a luggage tag. These were so cute not to mention fast and easy. I also made one for her dance teacher who is their chaperon.
Mary really wanted a knitted bandanna to take too. She had the idea of using one of our dish towel patterns-only knitting half. After knitting strings to tie it with, it worked out great.Hopefully she'll come back home with everything!

Grace is very structured with Emma and Abby-dinner, bath, movie, snack and game time. She's meticulous in writing down everything Abby eats and does. They actually LIKE my cooking!!! I love these children!
Mary and Sam are all about fun. Mary has just as much energy as this almost 2 year old. They just feed off each other. Sam just loves "Momma Dog". He can even say her name now.I think all of them had a fabulous time together. We can't wait for more visits with our sweet little friends.

It's been a while since I posted-time to catch up. The weather has been so gorgeous, I just can't stand to be indoors.
(Little gifts for our friends. These bunnies had pots of rye grass to sit in)
