Play Doh Day!





Santa brought Fred some playdoh in his stocking. So on Sunday we decided to get some out and play (earlier that morning while Momma slept in, Dada and Fred made pumpkins, and the demand was great by midday...) It was fun. There is a big ball of whositwhatsit playdoh in the fridge, but it has always been a mommy fantasy of mine to MAKE playdoh....(if homemade playdoh recipes were dollars.....) So, now maybe I am motivated enough to do it soon...



Big Brother shows the Littles the what-for :)




He made these really neat swirly colors.....


Fred had a great time.....
(she stood on the sidelines and bossed us all...and I


love the sun in this....)
One of Bastian's swirly combinations.... coolness

typical! haha.




fabric buy 1-12-10....

I needed the fabric for my sister's birthday quilt....and needed to feed the jones....Thatonemart had beautiful bolts of delicately flowered fabrics for $1.50/yard. So I got $16.50 worth...as it should be.... :) I will be using the spare (i hope!) to make Bella's summer shifts and bloomers! (and I will be going back for more...)












And here is the fabric for the quilts (the green/tan) and the backing will be the purple-ish flowers..... And a yard of brown flannel with orangeish flowers I got for a pair of pants for bella....
