Sophia requested the music on this morning, and then told Matthew "Bubbie, hold me like a 'frincess and dance me."
(breathe, hold back the sweet tears)
'Dear Lord, may every man that encounters this sweet and lovely girl as she grows recognize her for the sweet princess that she is, may the man you have made for her dance her through her grown life and care for her in every way.'
when I spied this from the back door, I was ready to seal up the door until winter... luckily we have a 'hunter-gatherer' here who ran for the windex and spray bleach. this huge spider didn't drop dead, he ran away, but hopefully he found a peaceful resting place shortly after.... ICK. I don't even think you can fathom the hugeness of this guy from the picture. It certainly doe not do him justice, but I was NOT getting any closer for a picture. no way.
Have you seen the new Silhouette machines? no? well get theee over to grosgrain for the SILHOUETTE MACHINE GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!! These machines look amazing! there seems to be so much you can do with them for endless creative fun! I'm just imagining the extremely fun projects Matthew and I could cook up together- especially since he's so into this crafty/ learning phase right now!
