A Good Weekend

Puppy's ear fell off Saturday morning.  I immediately got my sewing supplies and got ready to fix it.  Lynnie very seriously said, "weh-ell, maybe we should take Puppy to Grandma so SHE can fix her."  Ellie responded, "but Grandma broke her arm, Lynnie, she probably can't sew."

I tried to reassure Lynnie that Grandma had taught me how to sew, and that even though she has never actually seen me sew, I could do a few things.  I could tell Lynnie would only be convinced by the end product.  I did my best, and Puppy's ear is back on.  I realized hours later that I should have fixed Puppy's shoulder as well.  She's just had safety pins for so long that are part of her.

Cece was styling during our family shopping trip.  Ellie picked her outfit from head to toe.

Lynnie loves a lot of the vegetables from our garden.  Her favorites are the green bell peppers and the cherry tomatoes.  She wouldn't look at me, but I love the ball in her cheek that happens when she shoves an entire tomato in her mouth.

Cece loves to hold her own bottle, but it slips out of her grasp pretty easily.  I got out these bottles for her to try, because there are handles.  She loved it as a toy, I think, but didn't drink very much milk.

Cece took a little nap during Sacrament Meeting.  Literally the second she woke up, Lynnie wanted to hold her.  Love her sleepy eyes, and the pictures Hailey surreptitiously took!

After church, we were excited to have {R} come over for dinner.  I have been sad that I missed taking pictures of {R} and Cece both on Cece's sealing day and on her blessing day.  {R} was a good sport and agreed to do a full-on photo shoot.  Ellie chose the location.  Ellie also picked out her own outfit for {R}s visit -- cheetah pants and a zebra clip.

Cece was a little interested at first, but quickly was over the whole experience.

Ellie, Lynnie, {R} and I all tried to get Cece happy again, but mostly to no avail.

Curious Girl was very interested when Ellie ran circles around the fountain.  Cece kept on whipping her head around to see where Sister had gone.

The crying baby is pretty cute, and her dress, made by her birth grandma, is absolutely gorgeous.
