I really want to make this headband this weekend. I like all of Ruby's crafts. They're so colorful!And the tutorial doesn't seem too hard. I think this is what I'm going to make this weekend. I have lots of fabric. Because of the gift card my Nono gave me for Christmas. I just hope I can make it! :) C
Today is my Dad's birthday! Happy Birthday Papi! I LOVE you lots!!! And I hope you have a nice day. You're the best Dad ever! I want to give you a big hug and tell you that I love you. And I hope you like the breakfast that I'm making you. :) C
I really like this shirt. Disney makes some really fun things! I wonder if my Nana and I can make one of these. It's a little too hard for me. But I think my Nana could help me. She's good at sewing stuff. And I think it would be fun to wear for Valentine's day! :) C
I wanted to let you know about another giveaway that Kathleen is hosting. It's for this book. It looks like a wonderful book. All about sewing And dad said I could enter this too! I think the projects might be too hard for me to do all by myself. But I think my Nana could help me. If not, I would give her the book. I hope I win. I really like some of the pictures that Kathleen has posted. You should enter too! :) C
One of my favorite websites to look at is Grosgrain Fabulous. Kathleen sews beautifully. When I'm older, I hope to be talented like she is. Kathleen is also very generous. She is always having giveaways. I'm usually too shy to enter them. But when I saw this skirt, I had to go ask my dad if I could enter. and he said yes!
I'm very small. A lot smaller than the rest of the girls in my class. I think this might fit me. I hope so. It looks like such a grown up outfit. I would love to wear it with some tights and my new pink ballet slippers. I hope I win! You can enter too. You just have to go to her post and leave a comment. :) C
My Nana really does spoil me. She gave me a lot of different nail polishes for Christmas. With lots of other stuff too! But last night she polished my nails. I'm still not good at it. After dinner she polished my nails and Sarita's. This isn't a picture of my nails. But this is the color. It's really pretty. My Dad and my Nono both said that it looked nice. And my Tia Christina went to buy some of this color today. It's NYC Midtown. It just makes me smile! :) C
We're all very lucky. We have our health. But my friend Sarita, she's been sick since she was a baby. Sarita is like my little sister. She is 4 years old and has leukemia. Her mom and dad are my tio and tia. And they've been here with us. It's been really nice to have them here.
Sarita has to be in Tennessee to have her treatments. But when she isn't having her treatments, they like to come and visit. And my Dad always makes sure that they stay with us! Sarita's Nana and Nono are the same as mine. :)
I feel bad when I see her sick. But I know that she is getting better. The doctors are working hard to make her better. And we are all praying a lot to make her better. I'm not sure why God makes some of us sick and some of us healthy. But I'm glad that he is helping Sarita. :) C
Yesterday was the Feast of the 3 Kings. And after mass, we had everyone over for dinner. And to celebrate the 3 Kings. Even Papi Rene came. It was really neat. And we had Rosca de Reyes. It's a bread that they bake a baby Jesus into.
Whoever gets the baby Jesus, they have to have the party for the Candelaria. That's on February 2nd. It's also the last day of Christmas at church. My tio Jose got it! It was really funny!
But we had a fun night. It's neat to hear all the stories that my Abuelita, Dad, and Papi Rene tell. I learned a lot! And mi Tia Amelia was tell us stories about when she worked in the bakery in Mexico! I'm glad we celebrate these things. :) C
Tomorrow I go back to school. I'm really excited! I've missed my friends. We haven't seen each other at all during our break. But I've also had a lot of fun on winter break.
I did read my book over break though. I'm happy. It will make this week a lot easier for me. Because I also start my dance classes again tomorrow. They've been on break too! I have both my backpack and my dance bag packed. I'm ready for tomorrow.
Dad has to go back to work too. But he will still take me to school tomorrow. My Nono is going to be picking me up. He is very cool. I want him to go with me to my dance class. Maybe he will. I hope so!
That's it for tonight. Dad is making us all some popcorn. And we're watching some TV. In a little while, I have to go to sleep. I hope I can sleep! :) C
One of my presents from my Nono was a gift card for JoAnn's. He didn't have to get me one. But it was really nice of him! Today, we're going to JoAnn's to spend it. My Nono is a little worried. He doesn't know anything about crafts. But I think it will be a fun trip!
I want to get some sewing stuff. And maybe some yarn. My abuelita has been showing me a lot of new crochet stuff. It's super exciting! I can't wait to get to Joann's! :) C
We got to go to Disney last night. We went with my Nono. It was so much fun! They had lots of beautiful fireworks. I'm so glad that we got to come. :)
This morning, my Dad and my Nono are making us breakfast. It smells really yummy! Then we're all going to Disney World today! I'm really excited. My Nono and I already have our plans for all the rides we are going to ride!
But I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! :) C
