Girl's Night

In a little over a week my brother and his wife Kacee are moving to Georgia!  They'll both be going to school there and Kacee will be running for Georgia State.  We don't know how often we'll get to see them, so while we were all in town this weekend, we decided to have a girls night!  All of us wanted to spend more time with Kacee since she just barely officially joined the family and now she's moving. :(

For our night, we decided to go to Color Me Mine in Provo and then out to eat for dinner.  I had never been to CMM and it ended up being a lot of fun!  I'm not usually the crafty or artistic type, but I just starting drawing whatever on my little vase and I think it turned out pretty good!  I haven't seen it after it was fired yet cause I'm back in Cedar, but I hope it worked out ok!  It's interesting to see everyone's different styles and ideas.  I think everyone made darling items and I'm excited to see them all when I go home again next week!  Here are a few pictures:

Heidi was finishing a bowl that Parker started a while ago.  It said "Race James Low" around the whole thing and parker put stickers on the inside that read, "food here" with an arrow pointing to the center.  Ha ha, I'm sure Race will love it.

Heather made a little piggy bank for Eliza.  It was yellow with pink and purple flowers all over it.  She was the last of her kids who didn't have a piggy bank yet and it was close to her 1st birthday so it turned out perfect!

My mom had only been to CMM one time before and I think she just helped with kids on that trip, so pretty much this was her first time too :) She made a large cup/bowl with primary colors and her name around the inside.

I think Kacee's was my favorite.  She made a large cup and saucer with orange and yellow brush strokes all around both of the items.  Around the outside of the cup, she found a stamp of a city, so she did that in black (looked really cool!) and wrote "Georgia on my mind" on the saucer.  I think she even added a peach to the inside of the cup at the end.. fitting :) 

Mine was just a vase that I tried to get close to the colors we have in our living room.  It's hard to tell if you've put enough coats of paint on cause if not, the color will be a lot lighter and somewhat transparent.  We shall see what it turned out like this next week!

Told ya it was cute ;)
Heidi finished the bowl early cause it was already mostly done, so she started making this turtle, also for Race.  I can't remember if it was a little bank, or just a turtle, but she didn't quite finish it cause we had to leave to dinner.  Maybe next girl's night ;)

The (almost) finished product.  It's hard to see, but it will say Eliza on the side in a really light yellow and the rest of the bank will be a darker shade.  I'm excited to see all of these!  It's killin' me!
Ta duh! This is one side of mine.  The other side is close to the same, but has a swirly section too :)
And last but not least, my mom's.  She had little baby stars all around the outside in yellow, red and blue (maybe it was purple?? It's hard to tell when it's not fired) 

After CMM, we went to Pizza Pie Cafe in provo with all you can eat pizza, salad, and pasta.  My favorite Pizza was the Cherry Cobbler dessert pizza.  SO good...  I'm excited for the day that my whole family is around again and we can have more nights like this one.  Kacee and Nate, have fun in Georgia and be careful! You're not in Utah anymore ;) We'll miss you both but I know it'll be a great adventure!
