Once this summer

Big Bubbles? Once this summer. It's pretty messy.

Boating/skiing? Once this summer. Too much wind and rain.

Dancing in the rain? Many times this summer. It's all good. I have to post a few things about Jacey before I forget: She says, "Where you taking me?" When you pick her up and walk off with her. Sometimes we say, "to time out!" Sometimes it's just to the car or something. Pretty funny. She also says , "yay" a lot. E.G. "We're having watermelon Jacey." She'll say "Oh yay!" This little saying is difficult to describe, but it's cute. Trust me.

She's not half bad with an eyeliner pen!

This depicts what Jacey was up to while I was pounding away on the eliptical machine in the basement. You know, for 2 years old, she has a pretty good sound understanding with make up. She knew the eyeliner went on the lid of her eye. She might have a future in the cosmetic business. The foundation, on the other hand, is on the hands instead of the face. Go figure.

The true Easter dresses, which weren't done in time for Easter. I didn't really mind.

I used a technique called smocking, which is relatively new to me. While I was learning to smock, a neighbor lent me a book titled, "The Joy of Smocking" and it had a picture of a darling little girl in a white smocked dress on the cover. Everyone who saw the book thought that it said, "The Joy of Smoking!" Ha, so then we got into all kinds of discussions about my dirty little habit of smocking. Here are the smoking dresses!

Bad pictures. I promise their collars don't stand up when the wind isn't blowing. Nice. Double negative.

Perhaps my favorite parts were the little arm bands.
