the golden G, sewing club, pins & jackpots!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a free dress sponsored by
Wee Whimsy Couture! Enter HERE!

This past week has been soooo busy. It was G week/Transportation Unit at Grace's preschool which meant she got to wear "THE golden G". All weekend I had no idea what she was talking about but come Monday I finally figured it out. Each child gets to wear a golden letter during the week that corresponds to their first name. This "G" was for sure the little pumpkin's "golden ticket"!

I've been pretty lucky lately - hope I don't jinx myself - with blog giveaways and stuff. Right before I won this adorable stamp, I won a super cute toddler backpack from
o & el. I picked out this fun robot one for Hudson:

Thank you Carie and thank you CoolKids for hosting the giveaway!

Then a good friend of mine blessed me with an amazing lot of little boy hand-me-downs, including some adorable spring/summer smocked jon jons for Hudson. Yay! Her little guy is 2 years older than Hudson but both were born in the same "season" so the clothes are the perfect size. Thank you dear friend! Isn't this little guy getting so big???

{Love the skittles tongue!}
Grace's class went on a field trip to the bowling alley. They were so excited to check things out! The class got divided into 2 groups and it just so happened that our group was all girls so they quickly named themselves the "Kitty Cat Girls Team" - so funny those 5 little girlies! Grace was super excited when she had a surprise visitor...her Daddy! Lance was able to take off work for a bit to come see her and she was soooo happy!Grace & Kennedy I'm sooooo excited about our get together tonight! My friend Ashleigh has organized a Sewing Club and tonight is our first time to meet! Yay!!!!
