Big Girl Pajamas and another craft

I've had a couple of outfits stowed away in Audrey's closet because they've been too big for her. They're labeled 5T. I figured it would take a little while for her to fit in them. She's currently wearing mostly 4T with a little bit of the bigger size 3T.

During one of her "quiet times" a couple of days ago, she discovered them and pulled them all out. Among the outfits was a pair of purple pajamas. She insisted on wearing them to bed that night. I thought they would be impossibly long. They fit nearly perfectly.

Look at how red her hair is!

She's almost as tall as her 5-year-old cousins, and taller than some of her other cousins that are even older than that. She's growing up so fast, it's hard to remember that she's only 2 1/2. Her vocabulary and enunciation also make her seem older than she is. She has a cousin that is slightly older than her and a cousin slightly younger and both their mothers understand Audrey better than their own girls. (I can't take credit for this, really. She's just naturally verbose.)

I've just finished another "craft". I put quotes on craft because it felt a bit too easy to be a proper craft.
Ben's had some cartoon character prints since his mission, so we made a bunch of copies. I whipped up a front and back cover out of cardstock and we borrowed Dad's binding machine. Poof! Like magic, I had coloring books! Easy Christmas gift!

Where do you find time for all this stuff??? You must be under a pile of Elmer's glue and raffia all day long...
