George and I both have very small immediate families. I have just one sister, Courtney (aka Aunt CiCi) and he is
a lonely an only child. That means that the fab four have just one aunt and no uncles (At least not yet….ahem, eligible bachelors). They couldn’t have a better person for the job though. If you are going to have just one aunt, Aunt CiCi is the gal for the job!
I often conjure up creative ideas and crafty projects, but execution isn’t always quite right. I can’t cut in a straight line to save my life and I usually glue my fingers together if adhesives are involved. When Mom tried to teach me to sew, I ended up with wonky pajama pants that had the drawstring backwards and uneven legs. Thankfully, Courtney is excellent and executing my next great idea, and she enjoys doing it too I even have a board on Pinterest entitled “Things Courtney Should Sew” because the heavens know I could never make these fab things come to fruition. Her baby gift to the crew was sewing their curtains and bedding. She still has quilts in the works, but they don’t need them for quite a while anyways. Perhaps they’ll make good first birthday present?
A few weekends ago she helped me alter elastic headbands to fit the girls and hot glue hundreds (well not hundreds, but lots) of flowers to alligator clips. Every baby girl needs a headband with huge flower to go with EVERY outfit, right? Well, as our first Halloween is fast approaching I realized we needed costumes of course. There aren’t exactly tons of cute costumes for newborns so Courtney found a really cute idea on Pinterest. This particular idea involved sewing so of course that meant this was no task for me. Courtney couldn’t let her nieces and nephews go without adorable first Halloween costumes so she came over for the day and
helped make made the babies costumes. I have to say they turned out absolutely fantastic! You will have to wait until our Halloween post to see the final product. Any guess as to what they will be???
