emily elizabeth and a teacher

clifford + teacher

Last week, Em’s school had a few fun dress up days.

On the left, dress up like your favorite storybook character. It was a toss up until that very day between Pinkalicious and Emily Elizabeth from Clifford. I think her being able to take Clifford to school for show and tell won her over. We had most in her closet – added a few buttons to a hot pink cardigan. However, the pink and black striped knee highs were a challenge to find at the last minute. For reference, these adult arm warmers were perfect for her! We just sewed up the thumbs and cut out the extra fabric.

On the right, dress up like your chosen profession. A few days prior she decided on being a teacher. We pulled out the dress from her pre-k pictures, again tossed on a cardigan and popped out the lens to her sunglasses.

She had such fun deciding on what to be and seeing what all her friends chose!

Time to play a little catch up. So many things to share with you guys! First up is this sketch we did for Southern Living Magazine last year. It’s a sketch of Lindsay Bierman’s gorgeous home. At the time, he was the Editor-In-Chief of Southern Living, and he announced his departure on our stationery.

We are still pinching ourselves over this piece being featured!

Like many three, four, and five year olds… Em was the popular snow queen for halloween this year. There was a sea of blue that night. Elsas everywhere. So adorable.

At age three, here is a little list of what Em loved. As you can see, board games were a huge hit in our house.

Candy Land – She was given the princess edition. You can also find the classic edition.

Hi Ho Cherry-O – A fun way to encourage counting.

Cupcake Party Game – This was by far Em’s favorite game. She’d play this every single day.

Balance Bike – We loved this bike. It was the reason Em was able to learn to ride a training wheel free bike at age four.
