The Carpet Picnic.

I woke up to another sunny day. But my perspective had shifted and today I could feel it wash over me as it stripped the remaining shreds of disappointment from the last few days away. So when E asked if I'd like to join in her picnic, I couldn't help but say yes. Oh what a feast she prepared.


First she gathered her guests around the "picnic blanket." Do you see where she used a red and white checked potholder for a splash of color?

She was so proud of her picnic, and the fact that what we were really eating off of was a diaper changing mat? Well I hardly noticed it at all!

  6. Oh your comment about the dress I made was so kind! I'm so glad the picture I took hides all the flaws I made while sewing! You can really see how crooked my stitches are when you look at it up close! But....it was made for Laney by mommy with lots and lots of love and that's all that matters, right?

  9. My children use to have picnic events too when they were young. We used all kinds of interesting foods to represent "picnic" food. Those days were fun.
