superfriend


My friend and apparent SuperHero, Robyn, made my girls a wonderful gift for their birthdays. And she manages to make this exquisite stuff all while caring for a new baby and two other kids PLUS home schooling. How does she do it?

I waited a bit to blog it so I wouldn't steal her thunder. Then we've had day after day of gloomy and rainy weather, so not very good photo conditions. Not complaining though, Georgia needs the rain so so badly. Thank you, Lord! Gloomy it is.



I mean come on. Can it get sweeter? Sent along with the WONDERFUL whimsical and humorous (of course) The Princess And The Pea book by Lauren Child as the perfect companion to the playset. We sat down to read it as soon as the ribbon came off the package.

We already had the princesses to go with it, two adorable dolls made by Robyn as a special gift for the girls a while back. For this playset she designed two pretty nightgowns for them so the dolls could take turns being bruised by the pea.

This is the pea and its little pocket in the bottom mattress.


I love all the fabrics stacked together for the little mattresses. It's a gift we will certainly all cherish, SuperRobyn. Thanks again!

(What we won't cherish is picking up H1N1, probably at DisneyWorld. Ick. It's too early for the stinkety flu! At least we'll have it over with, I guess. Bright side to everything I suppose. The girls are real sick with it right now, and they are both coughing germy germ clouds all over the house. I'm banking on Mother's Immunity. We are holed up in our house for the duration. Don't want to spread the piggy joy. Y'all take your vitamins and wash your hands!)

  4. I hope they did not get it from Mickey! That would be a terrible memory of the first trip. Looking for a doctor for Kimberlee. She may have it too. Praying Floopie is ok! Those are such precious princess dolls. You are so blessed to have such an awesome friend.

  5. I took my daughter to the dr last week for a cold/allergies. I ONLY took her in because she was running a bit of a fever and I've regretted it since! The dr told us "well, it's not the flu and that's good." I asked wasn't it too early and she replied, "I mean the swine flu, we've seen some cases in the office already."

    GAH! What?! Couldn't they have said that on the phone?! I would NOT have taken her in there. Pr at least I'd have watched her at home for a little longer before taking her in. Argh.

    The gifts for your girls are awesome! Very neat!!

  8. Cute gift! So sorry to hear about the girls!!! I tried to comment on FB last night, but for some reason it's not letting me. Anyway, I hope they get well soon and that you and Michael can avoid it. We'll be praying for you!

  9. OH NO! I am so sorry you guys caught the flu. Have Michael stop for a case of Lysol on his way home tonight. You're all in my prayers!

    And, hey, thanks so much for all of the sweet words about the girlie's gift! Craft Superhero I'm not...I defer to you for that distinction. I just hope they have fun with them!

  17. Oh I LOVE Lauren Child :) I really hope the sickness leaves your home soon. I have to admit I am a little jealous of your Disney trip. It truly is the most Magical place on Earth! I don't think a smile left our faces the entire time we were there! I would love to be able to go again. I know Adler would Love it too!
    We lift your family in prayer for a speedy recovery :)
