Well! These weeks sure do fly by don't they? It only seems like 5 mins since I was sat here uploading pics for last week's smiles. Many thanks to all who joined in the fun last week. I hope you all enjoy a little time each week focusing on the smiles you've had.....I know it does me good. So I will get straight to my smiles for this week....and there have been many.
Birthday celebrations continue in our family this week. Little Theo's mummy, Gina and these two all have their birthdays on the same day so, as you can imagine, there has been lots to celebrate.
It really only seems like 5 mins since Sam and Lexi arrived in the world but yes, as you can see on their cards, they are now 6!! Their birthday party is at the weekend and I'm on duty to make the teas and coffees there....it's my excuse for hiding in the kitchen because they have the Animal man coming bringing snakes and other exotic animals for the children to handle!! [I really don't like snakes but I'm sure the children will have fun!!].
They have already got their first badge to sew on their hoodies [so I guess Nanny Annie will be sewing those on soon]....it was their First aid badge and Lulu even got the special award for being the best at putting someone in the recovery position so I'm really proud of them both.
Gina sent me this pic of Theo playing on the activity mat I made him for his birthday....as you can see he loves it so that really made me smile.
My other smiles are of this bundle of mischief. It was suggested by one of my blog followers that I would always find a way of repairing her favourite 'Little brown dog' toy and that's just what I have done this week. I made a pattern from her original toy and made a lovely brown 'cover' to go over it. Alas within 5 mins she had chewed a hole in it as the fabric wasn't very strong so I made another one in denim. As you can see she is really pleased with the now 'Little blue dog' and I have kept the paper pattern I made because I have a feeling I may be making more as she chews her way through each one!!
She has also been modelling my latest range of Doggy bandanas for me and her photo is now on the wrapping of each one I've made.....fame at last eh?
That's my smiles for this week. I hope I have found something to make you smile too and you will leave me a little message before linking up to your own smiles below. Have a great week.
