Today's is Xavi's turn to be showcased in my blog.  A few weeks ago he needed a bandana for a school play.   We went out to get one and of course he had to try all the ways you can wear one.  
I got my little camera out.   

He loves to play chess and he teaches our neighbor to play. He is having another musical concert in school and this time he will play a solo.  I am very excited and looking forward to it.   I am so proud of my boy.  

He lost a tooth yesterday and he put it in a plastic bag for the tooth fairy under the pillow.  I was thinking about how Sophie found out that I was the tooth fairy.  It was so funny she said that she had been suspecting for a while that it was me and when she lost a tooth she never told me and waited for the fairy a couple of days and it never came.  As soon as she told the tooth fairy came. Well, Xavi got his dollar bill this morning from the tooth fairy AKA me...yes!  no $20 or a trip to Disneyland this tooth fairy is frugal hahaha!!

Emma has been walking for a week now.  Finally!  Exactly 1 year and two months took her to take that leap of faith. She started walking balancing with her arms up in the air but a few days later she started dangling her arms like a little monkey side to side or like a little zombie.  So cute.  If "so cute" is even a full sentence...It's only been a week so all she needs is practice to perfect the skill.

I always think blurry pictures are the best.  Sophie always shows Emma Beyonce's musical videos. In the following set of pictures Sophie is "setting Emma up" so that we have a moment to study her spelling words. I had to hide in order to get these blurry pictures.

Isn't she adorable??  I couldn't just pick one so here is the whole set.  She will also sit in her couch to read books.  For a moment a brief moment...Oh my heart be still please!

What She Wore

So we went back to the same place, where previously I had taken the pictures that I deleted by mistake.  
No hard feeling Sophie.  Thank you.

I really love this drive. This is Winchester farms, pretty close to the post office that I visit often. 

I have been feeling overwhelmed lately with the end of school approaching pretty soon.  School testing and projects and field trips... 

With the start of spring I started doing a little gardening in my back yard.  Emma enjoys it.
I only hope that I can keep the plants alive. 

The morning we took the pictures was pretty.  Full of sunshine but not hot yet.  Just perfect for some inspiration and to gain energy to start the day.

How is your week going?

So I had taken this cute pictures for today's post of What She Wore.  Yeah, I had  but having a wiggly toddler in my arms while trying to download them wasn't working yesterday.  I highlighted them all and accidentally hit the delete button.  DELETE.  oh no!  the toddler kept wiggling :(

When Sophia came home from school she asked to see the pictures again I could them she had liked them very much and so did I.  Well I had to tell the truth and the mistake I made.  She was nice and just reassured me that everyone makes mistakes.

So I have two things to share today.  Last week I burnt my first batch of kale chips...some came out very toasty and some crunchy.  I hate it how they make cooking seem so easy.  

Another thing to share is my new logo for My Polyester Closet etsy shop.

Have you browsed my closet lately?
