sick day (or week)

This is the sort of post of which Hans and Xander blatantly disapprove: all Mary, all the time.

So my next blog post will be all about their love lives.

She was really sick, I promise. The piles of used Kleenex and her raspy little voice would convince you, but her illness certainly didn’t staunch her creativity. All her dolls received magnificent new hairstyles and every craft kit she owns was put into use.

I know,  I know,  you might accuse me of faking her illness just for the sheer pleasure of her company.

Really, she was sick. I promise.

    Mary sure knows how to make the best out of being sick! Not to mention that I would wear every single outfit in this post. Also, I would agree that it is NEVER too early to start packing, with the added provision that you can never really pack too much. To Xander and Hansie- I look forward to hearing all about your love lives;)

    Oh good grief, her face on the go cart. I may never recover from the fabulousness of that one!

    I love this post so much that I came back today to look at it again! My favorite parts are the many very darling outfits Mary is wearing. She could be a model. Not that you would want that, but she certainly is cute.

    Tell Mary that Molly was my Sarah’s doll. She’s just sitting here waiting for someone to play with her. She is welcome to pick her up on her wagon anytime for a playdate. xoxo
