Project Life - Week 31

Wednesday, 8 August 2012

 Week 31, nice to see you! Yes, I am totally aware that I have skipped over 2 weeks now. Such is life! We had a busy week here getting ready for Isabel's birthday on Saturday. I went into full production mode and whipped up a few creative projects for her birthday, as well as cleaning and tidying and baking before the day. Here is our cute 3 year old!
Christian also started back at work, so it was full on with the kids, too. Alexander was supposed to start preschool, but he was complaining of a headache and only went one day, instead of 4. They spent lots of time playing on the new iPad (which we got one of those weeks that hasn't been finished yet!), and we made a trip to the library. I borrowed 4 interior magazines and 2 Ottobre pattern books. Talk about inspiration! My highlight of the week was sewing Isabel a princess dress for her birthday, which she really loved! It's probably the nicest thing I have made so far :)

Saturday was one big celebration, with a children's birthday party in the morning, followed by a family celebration in the afternoon. It was lovely to see how much Isabel enjoyed being the centre of attention, and playing with her guests. On Sunday we had a huge treat....we went to the circus with Faster Marianne! We agreed that Lucy was too little, so she stayed behind with Christian while Marianne and I took the children. It was their first time at a circus, and they had a great time (especially Alexander - Isabel was a little tired and scared of the elephants). They loved the animal acts, and there were many of them...horses, dogs riding on ponies, elephants sitting down, sea lions playing with balls, and cossack riding. Alexander was very impressed that they could stand up on 2 horses while they were galloping. Me too, I must say! Another lovely week, which I am really happy that I can capture and record here. 

Linking up to the Mom Creative for more inspiration. See you next week!

Hugs, Fiona
