Okay, you got me started!

(My Christmas present to myself... "cuz there's a party in my tummy!")
First off, I want to thank you for your kind comments on the last post. If ever there was a day that warm-fuzzies were needed, it was definitely today! Up at 4:50 am again, and still empty toy shelves at Walmart... then I got the kids ready for pictures, only to have Bella nab a dark brown eyeliner and color all over her legs and bits of her WHITE outfit. It got even better after that, but I will not bore you with the details. So... thanks for the 'pick me up'. ♥♥♥
I am so HAPPY about all of the YGG love! I will admit, I didn't know any of those bands in the pre-YGG time... but I am now totally in love with all the songs from the show. I cannot wait for some kind of season 1 soundtrack. Tomorrow is Bri's bday, and I think the show actually premiered on her bday last year. I was sad that there were no YGG toys out in time for Christmas, so I ended up making them some from fleece and felt:
Funny thing, I submitted this photo to the Nick Jr. YGG photo gallery, and to my knowledge it was never used. Guess they didn't want me giving other crafty-mamas any ideas ;-)
Here is a clock I made for the playroom using a unfinished wooden plate and a clock mechanism (both from Hobby Lobby), the clock template from Nick Jr website, and some cutout letters from my friend's Cricut. Notice the tiny Brobee on the second hand. I ♥ Brobee.

So, thanks for letting me indulge in my YGG obsession with you all! Here's to a better day tomorrow, and some luck in the toy dept at 5 a.m.

This song has been in my head the last two days

I wanted to post my favorite YGG clips in honor of you on my blog but they were not on Youtube :(

I did find them elsewhere but no url to embed so here they are for you:

Just so you all know, I didn't make the shirt.. I bought it on www.yogabbagabba.com at the store. Didn't want to take credit for it ;-)

And Nikki, I love the Pajama Party song! I have been known to sing that around the house, as well.... and SuperNova's "Up and Down", among many others.

"There's a party in my tummy! So yummy! So yummy!"

We seldom complete a meal in my house without singing this at the table. :)

That clock you made is so cute!!
