… tah dah…

Well, some good guesses.

 

Not something I sewed, but something that was homemade.

 

I have a friend, who owns a business, who makes wonderful homemade things, and her speciality is aprons. So – a couple of months ago, I asked her to make me 4 custom aprons, one for each pf my nieces and nephew. I gave her basics – likes, colors, personality traits – and she came up with 4 fabulous aprons. I mean really – FAB-U-LOUS.

 

We did Easter with Dad’s side of the family on Saturday, and I packed up my containers and took thm with me. I added in my Mom’s homemade gift tags, which turnd out cute.

 

The kids LOVED the aprons. I heard… “THIS IS MY FAVORITE”   “MY FAVORITE COLORS ARE HERE” – it was pretty neat to see how much they loved the aprons. They wore them during dinner, and all around – they were a hit!! The rest of the day was good – we had a lot of fun, and I am glad Holy Week is over, I spent ALOT of time at church. ALOT. of TIME. So I’ll be happy when tomorrow is over and I can have a break.

 

This afternoon I spent Easter with another group of family – cousins, and cousins and Uncle Patrick whose really a cousin. We had a good time playing family tree – matching up how we are related. I got home about 4 – and am really tired, and really ready for an evening at home with books and just chilling.

 

With that – here are the photo’s of the kids and thier aprons.

 

Laura – really, I can’t tell you how much the kids loved thier gifts. The parents were very very impressed, and have said they’ll be hitting you up for business. Thank you SO SO much – you really took minimal information and did great things, I think it shows in thier faces!! Cookincutie.blogspot.com…. check it out folks.

    Im so happy that they loved the aprons! It actually made me a little teary (in a good way) to see all of them wearing the aprons! Would you mind if I use their pictures for my cookincutie blog? If so could you email them to me? I totally understand if their parents say no too:)
