What have we been doing?

Where have I been? I've been crazy since last weekend! We got through with Lucy's party on Saturday...can you believe she's three?! and since then, I've been busy cleaning/decluttering and working on making more diaper covers for my boys who have *literally* gotten too big for their britches. See what I've done:

...and more cake! Lucy wanted the fancy dressed-up doll cake, but we needed more cake than just that one, so I did a castle for the rest of the princesses. And, yes, I know you're supposed to use the bigger doll. Lucy had a choice between one large Barbie-sized princess or the whole set of mini princesses & decided that more really was more!
Here's the birthday girl being sung to.
Lucy, our little princess, had to put her *beautiful* new Cinderella gown on ASAP! Here's she's trying on the ring that came with the dress.

Here's Henry...he's just too cute to leave out of a family brag blog post! He's starting to like to hold things - especially this hedgehog!
Caught in the act of eating the hedgehog! The first time I heard him gnawing on the hedgie, I thought Lucy was smothering him, but he's just figuring out that he can really go to town on his little hedgie friend.
...and here's what I finished tonight! Let's hope that they fit the boys as well as I'd like them to fit! I had to fix up the Thomas diaper cover, so it looks a bit different, but I know it'll be Joey's favorite anyway. He LOVES Thomas! Henry has a blue cover with teddies embroidered on it & then there's the wildman Joey diaper on the right. I couldn't resist the zebra fleece since it was on the clearance/remnants rack. I'm such a sucker for fabric! I swear I'd still be in the store drooling over the colors, textures, and possible projects available if Lucy hadn't been buggin' me that she was thirsty!
Henry has another diaper cover cut & ready to be sewn, but I'm out of the loop side of the Velcro...guess I'll just have to go back to the fabric store! *grin*
Here's Joey's favorite side of the cover - you can actually see Thomas's face!
