Birthday, Christmas, first dance colorway

Well, first off, my birthday was interesting to say the least.  It started out perfectly.  My dad made waffles, and they were delicious.  Then around mid morning I got a call from my Step Mother in Law, she wanted to know if I could watch my 14 month old niece because her mother wanted her to go with her to some bar and the sister in law was pulling a double.  She said she'd pay me and I'm not one to turn down any baby time.
So, I went and picked up Chloe, and she went to lunch with us.  Now, I wanted Enchiladas at home, but Livi insisted that I go to El Porton's for lunch so that they could put cream up my nose.
Chloe made an absolute mess but that's alright.  Then she took a nice nap.  During that time, Livi fussed and fussed about wanting Chloe to be up so that they could play together. :o(
When she did finally wake up, it was evident that she is teething because she was extremely cranky.  (Great! right?)
Needless to say, I was relieved to see her go when SMIL came and got her.

Then I took myself to WalMart to get a Redbox movie and popcorn because I was pooped out and just wanted to veg-out!
We watched Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, it was the highlight of my evening. :o)

I did however use the babysitting money from the SMIL to get Livi a couple more Christmas presents because this month has been extremely slow in the shop and I was feeling really bad about how little I was able to get her. Her dad did pull through at the very last minute and she didn't feel deprived but, that's a different story and I don't feel like going into it now. :o)

I love this picture!  One of my presents to her was one of my old cameras and as you can see, she loved it :o)

I should have taken a picture of my one present, it was pretty funny, it was a bag of M&Ms from my Mom. But, I wasn't expecting anything, so it was a nice surprise.  However, Livi did eat them for me.  I have always said that everything I get ends up going to her. So, it's only right that she ended up getting my one Christmas present, right? lol :o)  

So, then yesterday, I finally got around to winding Livi some skeins to dye to pay for her dance lessons next month!  She did a great job too!! 

I asked her what she wanted to name this one and she decided on "Livi's Ballet Shoes"
So I present my Starflower design in size 40 "Livi's Ballet Shoes"

Didn't she do wonderfully????
