Ta-da! Pizza they made themselves! 

Ezra's first day - jumped right in & started on a pillow!

So did Ella - I love seeing these fabrics used again.  This one was originally from curtains I made for Abbie's nursery 23 years ago!

Rita looking lovely

Reagan has had weddings on his mind lately - this is a wedding cake made from magna-tiles!

Ezra still going strong

He stuffed it with wool & finished it - all in about 45 minutes!

They turned out beautifully!
