A few cute Cosmo Cricket prints on clearance as well as some sweet Lecien prints also on sale.Sweet Broderie. I love it. I've started making a new round of Union Jack blocks and I want to add this one.

So I agreed to a a friend party on my terms (because by the end of last week, I was feeling pooped): only 4 friends (who came home with us after preschool), coloring pages printed off the internet, a homemade cake with store-bought frosting, sprinkles and handmade lego-sculptures on top, and BYOLS (bring your own light saber.)

And I'm happy to report, they were very happy with it all. And so was I.
