Getting crafty

I've been really getting into making bows and flower clips so I thought I'd share some of what I've done. I'm debating on whether or not my stuff is good enough to sell so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Too much National Geographic?

This past weekend when we were at the pool Shyanne decided that she wanted to play crocodiles. So Nathan and I played along being the mommy and daddy then Shyanne decided that she would get us some food. She comes back and tell us "here you go here's a nice unicorn". WHAT?!? We told her that crocodiles don't eat unicorns so she says that she'll be back in a minute. When she comes back she tells us "okay here's your zebra. Mommy you get the head and daddy you get a leg." Wow there's nothing like a National Geographic show to break the cold, hard truth to your kid.

Weekend Getaway

Since I work for the Federal Government I got this awesome deal to stay at the Phoenician. So Sat. after my niece's baptism we drove over and right when we got through the front gates we saw a police car. I thought that's right the President is here this weekend I bet he's staying here. We go up a little further and yup he's staying here all right they had a check point. It was kinda weird we had to turn off the car, pop the trunk and hood while these guys walked around our car with a dog and a pole that had a mirror on the bottom checking the undercarriage of the car. We were clear so we went to go check in and the place was swarming with cops, plain clothes secret service, etc. Then there were people all decked out in their best waiting to meet the President, but we knew he'd already arrived because we saw these guys that looked like S.W.A.T. team members bringing their bags into the hotel. I mean you definitely wouldn't want to mess with these guys! After awhile we got used to all the security and felt very safe seeing as how there were over 2500 police there! We did see President Obama (ok just the back of his head) as he was walking with his security and we did see the W.H. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. Of course Nathan had to shout "Hi Robert" and he turned looking a little shocked and waved. We were able to enjoy our weekend swimming in 4 of the 8 pools and just relaxing.

We waited in line for about and hour and when Shyanne turned the corner and saw Cinderella she was totally speechless! When I asked her later why she didn't say anything she said "Because mommy Cinderella was real". That melted our hearts!
