Outlet success

Howdy! The kids and I just got back from back-to-school shopping at the Waterloo Premium Outlets. I must say we did great. Annabelle got 4 shirts, 4 pairs of pants, a sweatshirt, a sweater, socks and shoes, mostly from Gap and Justice. The sales and prices were fantastic. Mason got 4 shirts and undies from Gap and Gymboree. I just got a few pairs of socks at Bass, but the new sneakers I ordered from 6pm.com came today!

They were 1/2 price and I just love the cheery gingham. They're comfy too!
Some kids are going back to school soon, right? Down South? Up here it's not until September 8th.  So we've got almost another month to go. Mason's really looking forward to it but Annabelle not so much. What else is new??
We went to Skaneateles, NY on Sunday. It's this really cute town on Skaneateles lake. We walk around, have lunch, and check out the water. At Christmas time, they have a Dickens festival where characters from A Christmas Carol walk around and talk to you, act out little scenes, etc. There are horse-drawn carriage rides and free chestnuts (roasted on an open fire). Anyway in the summer it's just as fun.

Doesn't this one remind you of Seurat's Sunday Afternoon?

I'm in the preparatory stage of working on my nephew Max's Christmas quilt. You may remember that I bought some Riley Blake All-Star FQ's for this quilt. The only problem is, there isn't much of this fabric around anymore and I need a whole bunch of it. Poor planning on my part. So I'm going to mix some others in or pick up some here and there when I find it. I better hop to it though, Christmas crafting needs to start happening now!!

See you soon!
