Mickey Shirt

I finally decided to read the applique book I bought online (www.youcanmakethis.com) to see if I really could applique with my machine. I have to admit I was VERY nervous about doing it. I did one practice piece on scarp fabric and then cut out and attached the Mickey heads to the shirts below. I think I did pretty good for my first time. they are to go with the Mickey pants I posted a week ago. The shirts are from Wal-Mart and the fabric is from Hobby Lobby.

Pouncer Pal's Walk Around 2009

Saturday was the Pouncer Pals Walk-A-Round at the football game. Can you guess who is not looking forward to it?

Abby kept begging me to take her to Uncle Keith in the stands. The band is too loud and she was scared she kept saying.

At the game: the girls kept playing with Uncle Keith's "noculars"

Scott & Ryan joined us as well as Laurel and McKenzie and Laurel's sister Shelly

Bartlett Festival 2009

Friday night we went to the Annual Bartlett Festival. They have craft booths, carnival food and rides. The past 2 years they have had hot air balloon rides on Friday night but not this year. I guess all the rain made the field they set-up in to wet. We all had a great time. When we arrive I got the girls to sit down for one second at the entrance for a picture.

The girls & Tinker Bell

Allie wanted to go down the giant slide until she was half down. She some how ended up laying down for most of the ride down and when I got to her at the bottom she was crying. She did a great job going down the slide.

Here are the girls with their balloon animals

(I am not sure what is wrong with Blogger, it is not letting me move my pictures and type where I want it.)

Trip #2 to the Big Back Yard

Wednesday we went back to the Big Back Yard with the Mothers of Multiples Club. The girls love this East Memphis gem. This week we went to feed the Koi fish before we left. Abby is already asking to go back. And we will :) It is free on Wednesday's after noon.

Sister, which way do we go?

Mickey Pants & Santa Dress

I bought these dresses at a consignment sale this year. They had an initial on each dress, I was able to take the letters out and I placed the Santa on each dress. I plan to get the girls names placed on each dress.

Here are the Mickey pants I made for the girls. Abby was happy to try hers on but Allie was not, she said she was too busy to try hers on.

Children's Museum

Friday we went to the children's museum with Ainsley, Ammie and Cal.

Here is Allie and Ammie watching the train go by at the train stop.

They had face painting after lunch so off went to get the girls face painted. Abby got a lady bug painted on her arm. Allie and Ammie had butterfly's painted on their face.

This is the only time these two should ever be in the back seat of a police car!

Big Back Yard

Wednesday afternoon for the few hours it did not rain we went the Botanic Gardens with Amy and Ryan. It was the first time we have been but not the last. The girls had such a good time and it is so beautiful.

Craft Box

Saturday my Friend Suzie and I went to the Germantown Festival and had a lot of fun. They have fun rides for the kids, lots of food and vendors selling handmade items and all sorts of craft items. At one booth we saw a fabric covered storage box and we both thought, "we can make that." And so we went to Hobby Lobby after we left the Germantown Festival and made our own box.

Sunday Morning Donuts

Sunday before church we went by Gibson Donuts to pick up donuts for our Sunday School Class and let the girls have a special treat before church.
