Excuses for not eating:
These are all exclaimed at least once during meal times.
1. "Too hot, mama". - this one is her favorite
2. "Too big". - apparently every bite is too big now.
3. "Too spicy". - I think I've said this maybe once and now she says it all the time. I don't think she even knows what it means.
4. " no, no, no mama, milk".

I made a total of five of these tunics. Simplicity pattern 4203. Same pattern as Easter dress.
This one is my favorite. They also look better without a shirt on underneath. Violet calls this her 'happy to you' shirt. She really means to say 'happy birthday to you' and I'm guessing she associates icecream with birthdays. Funny.
I cleaned out my closets about a month ago and was bagging up some old clothes to donate when I decided to save some stuff and repurpose it. This was originally an old dress of mine that I turned into a skirt for Violet. I made the lining a little longer so it would hang lower than the printed material. Added some white ric-rac and a bow.
This was a last minute dress. I found this material and had to have it. I used McCalls pattern 5836.
I think I'm done sewing summer outfits for Violet. I still have a a yard or two of some more fabric but think I'll wait to use it.

Lately, trying to get a good pic of Violet and I is almost impossible. She just wants to act silly. Violet's dress is made from Simplicity pattern 4203 and mine is from Simplicity pattern 2591.
Another egg hunt at Grandma & Grandpa Young's house. Cousin Thomas is showing Violet were the eggs are.
Another attempt at a photo. A little better.
Searching for Easter eggs.
The giant chocolate bunny is hollow. Otherwise we might be eating it for a year.
Violet can open and close the eggs so trying to keep her from eating lots of candy this morning was kind of hard. I finally hid the basket in the bathroom or she would have eaten everything.
Besides some candy, Violet got a nightgown w/ bunny slippers for her baby and the Grandma and Grandpa bunnies, from Grandma F, that go along with the rest of her bunny family she has.
