Saturday Morning



I'm, like, so not excited about going to my bro's basketball game, but MAN do I look good.

Svea and Corinne's Tree

I ordered this wall decal from Surface Inspired on Etsy and had a little help putting it up.


Well, Corinne slept through it:


But Henry liked smoothing out the branches:


And Svea was all about the flowers and butterflies:


Ta-daaaaa!!!

New Baby Quilts




Sweetest Little Chili Pepper in Town

Our dear friend "Sylvia crocheted this chili pepper outfit for Corinne:







LOVE IT.

And Sylvia did not forget Queen Svea (promoted due to the arrival of Princess Corinne, of course):



(this was taken at the UMW bazaar before Henry's soccer game)

She also crocheted Henry a hamster, but he has confiscated it to his room to "feed" it along with Kung Zhu, so I was unable to get a picture.

Thank you, Sylvia!

They Think I'm Not Listening...

...but I hear every word:


Henry to Mom: You are not knowing very much today, Mom.


Svea: Mom, can you help me get this sock off? It's sweating me.


Henry: I wish my eye could spit. It's got something in it.


Henry: But it's hard with me by my own! (when told to do something by himself)


Uncle Brad and KB got engaged!! Hooray!

Us to Henry: Henry! Brad and KB are going to get married!
Henry: (giggle, giggle, giggle)........Eeeewwwwwwww.

Us to Svea: Svea! Brad and KB are going to get married!
Svea: And I can wear THIS to the wedding! (She was wearing a short-sleeved red t-shirt with sparkle peace signs, pink leggings with purple shorts over them. The purple shorts had a sparkly heart. And Twinkle Toes, of course.)

Thank You, Babs!

Our dear friend Barbara over in Babsland crocheted these booties and hat for sweet Corinne:



The hat is one we will grow into, but the booties are a daily wear kind of thing around here.



Thank you, Babs - you're the best!

Corinne and I Get the Svea Love

Happenings...

True to form, Svea has been easing into her role as big sister at her own pace, in her own style.

I love how she writes her sister's name:

(the bottom box says, "i Love you Corinne And MoM." Awwww.)

I love how she reads to her so I can shower:


(even though Corinne is not looking at her, deep down she's listening)



In the meantime, Henry has started basketball...


...which he would probably tell you makes him a better big brother.
I agree.

Halloween 2010

Halloween was actually a lot of fun this year. I say "actually" because in years past, I have not enjoyed myself. Even though candy was involved.

This year, Henry and Svea were so creative with their costumes and had a great time at all the weekend festivities.

First, there was Trunk or Treat and Svea was a Princess Fairy Ninja Cat. And if you asked her what she was, she would say, "PRINCESSFAIRYNINJACAT" in the tone of voice of "duh."







Henry was a ninja. Complete with ninja fighting skills:


The pair:



Corinne went as the sweetest pea in a pod:


Then on Halloween day, Corinne wore her Halloween sleeper for about 7 minutes. Then it was soiled and she wore something else. Story of our life.



Henry had a birthday party in the afternoon and went as a vampire:


After the party, it was time to Trick or Treat. Svea went as a princess with a Jasmine dress and tiara and Henry was something with vampire teeth. And a belt.

Hooray for Halloween 2010!
