'Too Cute' 8.5" x 11" Layout

See larger image

My sister Lindsey is a child minder, and whenever I return to the homeland for a visit, I usually spend a day with her so that I can get to see my darling niece Abbi. Of course this means that I become ‘Auntie Lesley’ to all the other kids who spend the day there. I secretly love it, but I can see how much hard work it is trying to keep tabs on four two year olds. Never mind the noise levels, but you never seem to have enough hands at meal times, and it seems like your whole day is spent changing nappies!

On my last visit, the kids and I had a great time building jigsaws, reading books, painting fingernails and playing games. They are all really good kids, and it’s so funny watching them all interact together – especially Josh and Abbi. Any time you ask Abbi who her boyfriend is, she will tell you that it is Josh. And he will declare his love for her just as quickly. They are always watching each other, and if one needs help, the other will give it. If Josh loses his bottle, Abbi will pick it up and hand it to him and they will share their toys with each other more easily than with the rest of the gang. Its just too cute! What’s more, they are constantly giving each other hugs and kisses! I guess as far as Abbi is concerned, you can never be too young to kiss boys.

So this layout is about these two little cherubs, and I have had lots of fun using my sewing machine on this one.
