1st day of school & maternity show

Friday was the first day of school for Lilly and Mamie. Lilly is actually on the pre-school side now, which blows my mind. I can't believe she is getting so old! They both have the BEST teachers this year, and we are all excited about school. I wanted to take a picture of Lilly with her teacher, Mrs. Sandra, but I think she was embarrassed. I was taking my camera inside and she asked me why. I said, "Don't you want me to get a picture of you and Mrs. Sandra on the first day of school?" and she said in a very big girl way, "Well, no thank you, mom. Alright?"
We had to have the backpack picture

Cheese!

(I could not get Mamie to put the baby down for the picture.)

And this is where mommy was on the first day of school--selling paintings and personalized cards at a maternity show at the Hampton Inn in Green Hills. Jon's sister has a friend that bought Mama Mason's (that used to be in Grace's plaza) and is selling designer maternity wear.

She had great stuff. Unfortunately I wasn't in the market for any maternity clothes right now, but if anyone is, you should check out her blog. Anyway, she let me set up a booth and try to sell some paintings for nurseries, kid's rooms, etc. If anyone is looking for a piece of art for their nursery or kid's rooms, email me at bamalyla@bellsouth.net and let me know. I can match any fabric or bedding and love to incorporate their name or your favorite scripture.

Your girls look adorable in their school pictures. I have heard wonderful things about Mrs. Sandra! That's hilarious that Lilly didn't want her picture taken with her.

Your paintings are so great! Kim put an adorable one up on her blog too! I will definetely remember this for baby gifts!

Oh, who left the comment right above me? Ha!

I love your stuff! SO talented! I hope that you were able to sell a lot of things! The girls look so sweet for school. It's too bad that we aren't there on the same days!

THanks for your sweet comment on my blog, and for linking me up, or whatever it's called. :) I'm glad our youngests are in the same class - you really gave me some piece of mind when you told me you like CH so much you drive in from Lebanon for it! And I agree with Laura Beth - you do beautiful work. I'm jealous of your creativity and talent!! See you soon, I bet :)

Hey Lyla- thanks for your comment on my blog. Always nice to hear from a fellow blogger friend!!
Your work is beautiful... I am going to keep your website in mind. Also, just wanted to tell you how much I love your girls names....Mamie is especially precious. Since I have 2 boys, I always love hearing different girl names.
