We Love Tulare Beach

Minnie Mouse Dress

Evie has a Minnie Mouse doll with a pink and white polka dot dress.  She loves this Minnie doll and takes her everywhere and sleeps with her every night.

So I decided to make her a Minnie dress.  I used a free pattern I got from The Cottage Mama (

She would not let go of the fabric at the store and kept asking to wear the Minnie dress.  I had to keep explaining that I had to make the dress first.  Then every day after she asks me the make the Minnie dress.  I had some free time since the kids are at my mom and dads so I decided to give it a go.  I have never made anything as intricate/complicated at this but I think it turned out really cute.  Now I just hope it fits her!  She is going to be so excited when she gets home tomorrow.

Here it is:

Me: What do you need buddy?
J: My tummy is hungry
Me: Sorry buddy, we already had dinner and you didn't want to eat it.
J: My tummy is still hungry
Me: Well, maybe next time you will eat your dinner.
J: Ok, next time can we have somethin different? Like sghetti.

I am loving this stage of Jacob's art work.  He loves to color, draw, and paint and asks to do it daily. 
Here are some from this week.

This Kid fearless, confident, coordinated, strong, and a climber.


Just before this picture of Noah and Evie on the ladder, I hear Evie say 'Noah's too high'.  As I come around the corner I only see Noah's foot hanging down as he actually climbs all the way into the attic and stands up there looking so proud as I scramble up to get him down.
