Last week, Nana decided to make a trip down with her new addition, Bandit! The kids were thrilled to see Nana and to finally meet the new puppy. Hands down, Emma was the most smitten with Bandit. Will came in a close second. Jack was less than thrilled and is still complaining about the bites that he got when Bandit was trying to play. I thought he was adorable, but was less than thrilled with the behavior that goes along with being a puppy. Thank goodness for hardwood floors! To our surprise, Bandit took a liking to the dirt in my plants. Not even the plastic wrap deterred him from digging and sending dirt across the floor. Along with dirt, Bandit also has a fondness for shoes. There was a benefit to this though as it caused the kids to put their shoes in the closet immediately! That lasted for, oh.....about 3 days after Bandit left.
As it rained nearly every day out of the 7 that Nana was here, we didn't do many fun things. We were able to get some sewing done. Nana made Jack a pair of Kermit sleep shorts, I made a floor pillow for Emma's teacher and I also started an adorable skirt for Emma using Amy Butler fabric. I can't wait to get it done! Unfortunately, the only thing I've done since Nana left was make bias tape. What an adventure that was! It turned out great though and I can't wait to post the final product.
In case you're wondering, Will took the goofy pictures of me and Nana. He told us what to do and we complied. The funny pictures are the end result!
Thanks, Nana for a great visit with lots of quality time! I'll let you know when Allan starts asking about your next trip down. :)
