Update !!!

On saturday, we celebrated Pierre and Chuy's birthdays (two october babies). Pierre turned 13 on october 7 th that makes him an official member of the teenager club. Already 13 yo ... Time flies ...


Steb was so happy when Pierre was opening his gifts. Mickey is not really apropriate for a 13 yo but I didn't have another wrapping paper. He got a MP3 player and now feels he belongs to the world !!! (then he took forever to figure out how to download some music to his player but this is a totally different story ... )


In this portrait, Pierre looks so grown up: I think that's what he could look like in some years from now. The kids are on vacations for a week and a half so we have to find some things to do. I bought two little clay items to paint. Emma got a little lady to paint and was very happy to paint it but almost at the end, the little lady fell off and broke. She was very disapointed and it was hard to stop her tears ...
Steb got a little car and he loved painting it (in blue and only in blue !!! )
So Halloween is around the corner and my kids are pretty excited. Emma decided it was time to have a Haloween snack time so she dressed the table all by herself (note that we don't have any table cloth yet: she used some of her blankets !) Will you believe I was crazy enough to invite some kids over for a Halloween party on saturday? ... I should have 9 kids (mine included ................... )
Mid october, we got our christmas toys catalogs. (this is soooooooo crazy) Pierre and Emma love to circle what they want so Steb had to do the same. He was so funny to watch.
I have three big mistakes in my stitching now but I won't frog it ... I only hope it won't be a problem when i'll have to stitch the Wecome message on the middle. Before my Facebook life, it would have been already finished ... I'm working on the second bird. The design is so cute but it's a Dimensions and those designs are often very pretty but a pain to stitch.

Hope the Halloween party goes well is a lot of fun. Oh and not too much work for you!

My daughter is already putting in the orders to Santa. Surprisingly the list is very small and for us, quite cheap.

What a great disappointment it must have been to Emma. Working so hard and enjoying the painting.

You have great kids. The picture of the boys together. You can tell from there faces that the are anxious to know what is in the package.

Nice greetings,

Happy (belated) Birthday to Chuy and Pierre!!!!

Emma did a lovely job with her decorating. Maybe she should be an interior decorator or party planner? :o)

GET OFF FACEBOOK!!!! LOL! Can't you see how your stitching is suffering???? ;o)
