Mermaid Tail was a Success!

Friday, I posted a picture of the mermaid tail that I made for my granddaughter's birthday gift.  We gave it to her Friday night and it was a HUGE success. YIPPEE!!

Sadie told me that she doesn't like this gift, she LOVES it and will NEVER, EVER forget it. :-)

Sadie was very kind and let her sister Quinn have some fun flopping around as a mermaid.

Sadie had a great time posing as if she's a mermaid sunning herself on the rocks.

And then they wondered if there would ever be a two-headed mermaid. There is now!

I love it that all of the grand kids play together! It may be loud, but it warms my heart to see them all together. They are playing with Bailey's little wood box toy. There are a bunch of different shaped blocks and you put them in the box by matching up the shape to the correct hole. All of the grand kids have loved doing that since they were very young.

I love it when I see the kids playing with or snuggling up with quilts that I've made for them. Peyton is wrapping a doll in a mini chenille I made for Quinn and Sadie back in 2012.


Of course Peyton has to share the doll quilt. She didn't want to use the matching larger quilt. Nope, she just wanted to share with the doll.  :-)


And Quinn and her siblings are so lucky to have another grandma who is awesome. They call her Grandma Honey, and Quinn sure does love to snuggle with her. I was glad she was at the birthday celebration!

I didn't realize it was that big! I thought it slipped on like a costume, but how cute!! Love the two in the tail.

It's always wonderful when something you've made is a great success. From the pictures, it is obvious that everyone had a wonderful time. It's nice to see children sharing. My 3 year old granddaughter lives with me and my son. Even though she has several (half) siblings, she is much like an only child since she is the only one living with us right now. Her 10 year old brother lived with us this summer and lives with his mom during the school year. So, she is not very adept at sharing. So, we do daycare some just so she will learn some of those skills. Thanks for sharing the wonderful project and how it was received.

Looks like the tail will serve the girls well for some time, which is great because you did a beautiful job on it! What's happy family occasion with a beautiful family!
