I’m finishing up a commissioned baby quilt this week, to be delivered on Thursday. After I made the chevron quilt for H’s speech therapist, using Crazy Mom Quilts’ tutorial, another staffer at her speech clinic commissioned one for her friend’s baby shower. In lovely lavender and gray fabrics that she picked out from Fat Quarter Shop.

Last Monday was Hannah’s first day. Technically the first day was right after Labor Day, but we were in Florida. Her school does a couple of phase-in weeks to start the year, and she’s only 4, so we figured if ever there was a time to take advantage of low crowds for our sensory kid, this was it.

Other posts on this trip: Disney Post the First, Harry Potter Day at Universal Plus All of the Food, Disney Post the Second

This is my last post on our week at Disney, but I wanted to put the photos from the Halloween party separately. Because that’s where we got to sport our PJ Masks costumes, and it was also my favorite thing from the entire trip. I just loved being in Magic Kingdom when it was spooky (but not too spooky), and how cool is it to get to trick or treat around Disney World? It was pretty darn amazing, I thought. And so did Hannah, we didn’t get home from the party until just before midnight, she just kept going.

Other posts on this trip: Disney Post the First, Harry Potter Day at Universal Plus All of the Food

Here’s another batch of photos from our trip last week. I only have one more post to put up with photos, and that’s for the Halloween party with our PJ Masks costumes! I didn’t take as many pictures on this trip because it was such a busy time, but we do have some great ones. Some of our Disney photographer shots are here, too.

I was at Universal a few years ago, when the Harry Potter section was new, but I’d just found out that I was pregnant and couldn’t ride anything. My brother-in-law Thomas and I took a break from Disney and went over to Universal last week. I Harry Potter’d! I did so much Harry Pottering!

Disney! We arrived in Disney last Saturday and hit the ground running. Landed at the airport, checked into the hotel, went straight to Magic Kingdom to meet Mickey.


We didn’t last until the electric light parade, but it was a great afternoon and evening. Then we spent the next 2 days in Epcot.

So Owelette was probably where I messed up the most on these costumes, but Adam’s Catboy had its problems, too. And I did get her figured out. And, I think this might be my favorite costume (and I get to wear it).

August 2016 Outfits

Every summer there’s at least one month when I barely take any outfit photos, and the ones I do take I’m basically always wearing the same thing. Welcome to August 2016.

It’s the last day of August, and it feels like a good time to check in with all the remaining summer fun we’ve had that I never posted. I did post some things a few weeks ago, but this is it. All the rest. It was a great summer! But, we are ready for one last vacation and then back to school. It’s time. She will have had 3 months of summer, with no camps or big summer programs (one day a week at a play gym), and this child NEEDS to go back to school. She loves it, she misses it, she’s ready.
