Unicorn Magical

I love my unicorn so much! I watched the movie called The Last Unicorn, and I wanted my own white unicorn. And I had a white horse, so I decided to make that to a white unicorn. And I like my white unicorn so much that I can't believe it's magical in the world of white trees and white flowers. [Marian liked this picture with the flash because it is glowing "magical".]

I wanted curly hair so I used some silk, real silk that's so soft. I got it from Sara and Jeff when we were visiting them [at a great Asheville craft supply] and it's the magical unicorn.

I separated the silk into pieces that were the right size and my mom sewed them on. My mom said what should we do for a horn and we decided to make it out of felt. I said "cut a fat triangle" and my mom cut it out of paper. We tried it on the unicorn to try if it looked good to me and we tried it again and again and again and again and it turned out so good at the the end. I stuffed it with stuffing. We did a spiral and we got some silver thread and put it around it so it looks like it's a spiral. I'm done.

V is for violin!

I love my violin so much. Is the size 1/16. My teacher is named Haylie. Haylie is really nice. And when she told me what to do, I did it so right! I couldn't believe it of all my joy. Of all the things I could do of my violin teacher.
This is when I'm picking up my violin. I love my violin so much. I just love it, love it, love it, love it. With joy!
[We are renting from a marvelous little violin shop, The Chimneys, in the middle of nowhere (aka Boiling Springs, PA), that still does a great business since the cool old guy who owns it is a rather beautiful violin artisan. He's in one of the pics above, but you can't see his waxed, curly mustachio because I wasn't brave enough to ask him to pose. He's working on her bow. ]

My Scientist Experiments

This is what I did: I found an empty of one of my dressings packs and I took a ziploc bag and I filled the dressing pack full with water using a syringe and put the dressing pack in the ziploc then it soaked out into the ziploc bag. I learned that water stays in [the dressing package] for a minute and then it soaks out. The water stays in the ziploc bag for a long time. And then I made letters showing my experiment how it was. That's all for my experiment story!

fashion designer

We had a wee family reunion while on vacation, and Marian's superstar drawing was chosen as the shirt design. We printed them via acme prints, which I highly recommend; good prices & stellar customer service. I know I was annoying w/ my questions...

Here's Marian's Uncle Justin sporting his. Plus a little raspberry juice from one of his twin boys, whom ADORED grandma's berry canes... Photo taken to show off Marian's new smile (dental student Justin helped her get rid of those super-loose top incisors).

a vacation dream

We've been a vacationing, but I think I can talk Marian into posting a bit more again. I did record a sweet dream while we were gone. The girls had asked me to help them go to sleep by talking them through some imagery, choosing a forest and meadow. When I went to check on her awhile later, she popped up out of bed, announcing: "I had a beautiful dream!" Here it is.

The flowers opened and there was a horse that's butterscotch colored and she have curly hair with her mane and her tail. She runned around in a circle and her [hair] swooped a little while she was running and also while the wind was blowing. And she entered into a pathway then she saw fairies dancing, then she put her nose down to the fairy and smelled it and then she runned like the wind, saw the trees blowing and that's all.
