Bedazzle Me

My good friend "Hitzy Blonde" (yes she is a skater) came over for a visit a few days after my surgery.  With her, she brought the craft-r-noon arsenal.  Beads, and gems, the hot glue gun, and of course rainbow glitter spray...the works.  Her mission was "to make Toxic Sugar's crutches acceptable for daily use."  
Successful mission I would have to say.  The triplets and her son Andy had a great time helping her glue and place multi-colored rhinestones all over them.  "Crutches MUST be sparkling."  I could not agree more with you, Hitzy. 
The finished project shined and sparkled in just the smallest amount of light.  You should see them in the sun, amazing.  They are truly "Dazzling."
Thank you Hitzy!  The fact that I have the "coolest crutches ever" make it just a little easier to use them.  Thanks for thinking of me.  You are the Goddess of all things that sparkle.

Tokens = Happiness

What do cheetahs, dragons, bunnies and elephants have in common?  
Love from the Beauties.
  They love to ride the carousel on Saturdays after skating lessons.  They each ride their favorite animal every single Saturday.  Papa gives them each a token, and week after week, they each pick the same animal to ride on.  If another child has taken claim on their animal of choice, they wait patiently until the next ride begins.
Spoiled...maybe a little.

Saturday Skate Time

Chloe is enjoying her ice skating lessons so much.  She passed through her first 8 weeks of lessons with flying colors.  She must get her skating abilities from her Momma (wink wink)  She is now on her second set of 8 weeks.  She has the same teacher and there is only one other little girl in her class, so she gets lots of individual time.  Which is a spectacular bonus.  She has really good balance.  If we could just convince her that falling is all part of it, she would be more at ease I think.  She was very excited to get to go for some extra practice with her cousin Molli.  She wanted to work on some things she has been learning..
She always seems to know that Mommy is shooting photos, sometimes she smiles and other times she pretends to be shy.
 The triplets love to watch Chloe and Molli skate.  It has become one of their most favorite things to do on Saturdays.  "Go watch Sissy skate and eat bagels."  
Triplet time out to blow some kisses at Mommy.
Kisses for Molli through the window.
