My little Seamstress!

Mari really enjoys doing crafts and making things. She got a sewing maching for Christmas from Santa. Unfotunately mommy knows nothing about sewing, but thank God for Aunt Linda Patton!

Aunt Linda Patton came over one evening and helped Mari make a pillow and teach her a little bit about her new sewing machine. Mari LOVES it and made a very cute pillow for her brother as you can see in the pictures below!

Cutting the pattern!

Mari's first time sewing on her own! She is very serious about her work! The finished project - a pillow for Xavier!

The "donkey" who broke my heart!

My conversation with Xavier in the car after school today:

Xavier: "Mommy, some girl broke my heart today"

Me: "Who broke your heart and why?"
Xavier: "The girl who was dressed as a donkey that I sat behind on the stage at the Christmas performance today"

Me: "Why did she break your heart?"

Xavier: "Because she moved her tail when I was touching it"
