And out in the pool swimming with her very handsome grandpa . . .
Her mother, (my oldest child), and I dusted off our craft genes and made an attempt to be creative. (I promise, Camille was having much more fun than this picture indicates.) We turned the kitchen table in to "craft central" for a two day craft bonanza.
My friend Jenny had given me a lavender watch face several months ago so I decided to make a band to go with it. (Watch on the right) It actually has dark lavender stones on it. I then decided to make a band for a watch face Camille had as well. Hers is black and silver. I thought both turned out really cute, so now we can't wait to wear them!
We then pulled out the scrapbook paper, paint and Modge Podge and made this cute little Halloween decoration. I am going to hang mine on a dowel attached to wire and tie a big bow on the top, but I haven't gotten that far yet.
And lastly, we made cute little head bands and clips for our respective "babies" Here is my baby, Michelle, with a pink flower in her hair, made to match Carly's head band. Luckily Michelle didn't mind playing along and dressing in pink.
Camille and Carly return to Colorado tomorrow and we are so very sad!! (Although we know Dave the Dad is very much looking forward to their return.) It has been such a great week having them here to play with. It has also been fun to see what a good mom Camille is! It just makes me smile every time I see her changing a diaper or making a new batch of baby food!!
Thanks for coming and spending this time with us. Dave--thanks for letting them come!! We are now counting down the days until you come back!
