Saturday Fun

It was a crazy kind of Saturday around here! Wanna see if you can keep up with us??

I started my day with a Butterfly Blog post... it is SOOOO hard for me to remember to blog on the business blog, but I am trying to make it a habit!
First we got up, dressed and out of the house before 9 am... and for a Saturday that is not fun! I would love ONE sleep in day... but I digress. So here is the outfit my fashion diva chose for the day. Interesting. I personally *love* that dress, but it looks like it is getting a bit small for her. The cowboy boots was an interesting touch I have to say. But if it makes her happy who am I to complain??

So we were off to TOPSoccer first thing.

Are you familiar with TOPSoccer? Well if not, it is a GREAT program that is set up for disabled kids to have an opportunity to play soccer and learn the game. Each child is paired with a buddy. That buddy's job is to make sure that each unique players special needs are met. It is such a great program for the special needs kids to get out and participate, but it is equally great that the buddies get exposure to working with special needs kids.

The weather was beautiful and the season is almost over so we invited Grammie and Papa to come see Nathaniel play too! It was fun having them watch (although don't ask me what they were all looking at the ground for in this picture..)

This cool prop is actually a new shooting goal that we just got for the TOPSoccer program. The kids can kick the balls and aim for the numbers. Nat did really well with it.. .especially when his sister was peeking through the holes and he could aim at her!

Nathaniel *LOVES* to play goalie, but he had lost one of his goalie gloves...

So Coach George got him some new ones to use. How awesome is that!!??

And cowboy boots or not.. sister had to take a few shots at the goalie!
After TOPSoccer was over it was off to Butterfly to work we went.

First on the agenda was to finish the Pink Panther hood for a customer....

And of course you can't have the Pink Panther without the detective (or so I am told since I have never seen it..)

Faline did a great job of turning this cool hat into a detective hat... it was ORANGE when we found it!

Next up was finishing stamping the tee shirts for the school field trip on Tuesday. I think I am going to have to do a separate post to show that fun project!

Then it was time to hem Josie's dress.
I think we are doing brown for Christmas pictures this year... won't Josie look cute in that little number that we just got her off of a GREAT Blog Sale a few weeks ago. Can't wait till April does that again! :)

Now this is funny....

Nathaniel has become ADDICTED to Facebook games. EVERY TIME I turn around he is on my computer playing downhill skiing thing or Farkle. So for almost an hour here they sat. Nathaniel on his new laptop on Faline's FB account challenging Josie (on her laptop and her FB account) to downhill skiing. Audrey was alternately rooting for whoever was doing best! But they were still and relatively quiet for over an hour!!

During that hour I did a rush alteration order that came in for the same day

And made Audrey a new tutu for Sunday's performance since Faline SOLD Audrey's tutu earlier in the week!! I don't know about that girl.....

It did look pretty funny added to her already Fashion Diva outfit!!

Also during this time we printed labels for all of the art and school work piled on my kitchen counter.... Three years worth of "save" work. UGH!! So I got all the labels printed to get this put away in the new boxes that I bought the kids to save the work that they want to in. Yes, I am TRYING to get organized!!

And LAST before we left BB for the day was starting a project for Josie using this....

Have any guesses what I am doing for her with that set of California King Red Satin Playboy sheets??

Once we got home we still had a full evening which included cleaning the rabbit cages (ask Audrey about that fun job!), putting the labels on all that school work and reclaiming my kitchen counter, cooking dinner (thank goodness for leftovers!) and cleaning the kitchen. All of this and in bed for the night by 9:30 pm, not bad for a days work!

Yes, I think we got quiet a bit crammed in this day! And it definitely helped in distracting us from the unpleasant business we have coming up this week. Please keep us in your prayers for this. And could you also pray for the person or persons that keep telling lies about us and making our life hell?? This really has to stop! My prayer is that the Lord work in the heart of whoever is doing this healing them so they stop trying to hurt us!! It is hard to pray for an enemy that is being so hurtful, but it's either that or hate them and I have no room in my life for hate!

Hoping you are having a fun and blessed weekend!
