Sunday Snapshots & This Week’s Plan

Mama Reita surprised the kiddos late last week with a care package full of new clothes, so I decided to take some snapshots of them modeling their new duds. 

The dresses for the girls are Mom’s rendering of a dress she saw online a few weeks ago, and opted to put together on her own. Didn’t she do a fantastic job?

What would Miss Cecily happen to be hugging in this photo? One of big brother’s cars, of course.
Sweet Charlotte.

Thanks so much to Just Barb for the tip she left in the comments on this post to check out the Bowling Shirt Pattern by The Scientific Seamstress! Mama Reita made a dapper little shirt for Jack with it, and she said the pattern was a pleasure to use!

Handsome boy.

It is a sheer impossibility to take a photo of these monkeys with all three paying attention. They sure are cute, though.

Lest I forget, our menu for the week…

Superbowl Goodies

Pork Chops with Polenta and Roasted Cauliflower

Out to eat
Creamy Enchiladas with Black Beans

Mama Reita’s Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes and Peas

Homemade Pizza with Salad

And a preview of what’s on tap here at PS in the week to come…

A Let’s Make Something Together project to show you how to turn ordinary diaper boxes into snazzy decorative containers…

A kid-friendly Creating in a Crunch project to keep the snow-day blues at bay…

Simple Solutions from YOU for how to keep laundry from taking over your life…

And much more!

So…..Who’s ready for some football?!

 Can I be honest? I couldn’t care less, other than for the excuse to indulge in some yummy game-day food. 😉
