Stef wants to try & make a dress for the birthday girl. I think I have enough fabric left that she can. Guess she'll get a sewing lesson after all.


I'm so glad the dress fit so well. She will really enjoy that all summer.

have fun with the lesson. I'm SO glad that I've been able to learn from Anne while she's still here. She leaves on Monday to live in Charleston.

They all just crack me up with these cakes...

We have a movie to watch "Mr Poppers Penquins" as soon as Cody gets back and gets his bath...
Not sure that Hunger Games would be a movie that Cody would be interested in seeing. I'm going with a GF tomorrow to see it and then going out for dinner afterwards. This is one of my old friends from book club and I really miss her since she moved away from our Ward.

I saw the cake on FB. Very cute.

Mr. Poppers Penguins was a cute movie. Saw it in the theater when it was out. We all enjoyed it.

Only I would sit and talk to these animals... lol
Are you kidding? I talk to my babies all the time and sometimes they even understand me and do what I tell them.

It does sound like they are getting along pretty well though. It's hard when you bring a new animal into the mix.

I don't think they're hard, except like Dody said, if you put it in last. I never did that. It was always easier to do it while the dress or skirt was still in the construction stage.

Thanks. I really do.

I am having fits with Bowdabra right now. We are learning to post out own tutorials on their blog as a draft so that they can just post it from there whenever they are ready. It's in WordPress though, and that's not at all like Blogspot. I was having issues today.

I am still praying that all went well with the surgery. If you talk to him, let him know that I'm praying. Let us know when you hear something, please.

Well, I saw on FB today that my DD and SIL finally closed on that new house in Southern CA and now their house is on the market. I'll have to call her soon and find out how long they have before they have to be out of their house. I know they were not planning to actually move into the new house until after school was out. They may have to rent a place for a month or so.

Why would you think that Cody wouldn't enjoy it?? Jaydin LOVED it, and of course, Jonah and I did, as well.

I hope you enjoy it.

Oh, I would imagine that to be frustrating. I'm sorry.

I'm exhausted.

Anne came today, but she didn't come to help me sew. This time, she came for me to help her. Our church is remodeling the lower lobby of our church. Above the office area door, they are putting 2 verses using vinyl. She needed help cutting them.

The verses???

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20


Seeing it, hearing it ... no big deal. Cutting out each letter the correct size and trying to save vinyl while doing it?! YIKES!

It was a long day.

Krista wanted to see it first, and she really did not think it was some thing he would enjoy ...
Jaydin was interested in seeing it, wow I did not care to at all,
I was surprised Ali and Brooke read the books,but Brooke did at school

Good morning Quackers. Kind of overcast this morning.

Going to head off to the PO soon to mail my Easter baskets to my DGD at college and one to my DD & her family in CA. Then need to stop by the bank and the grocery store. Need to be back by 10 and hope that my yard man will get her soon after that to get thse shrubs planted.

Great job on the dress and hat Dody. Alyssa looks so cute in the outfit.

Great picture of Bud with the grands.

how sweet!!!! do they dress up?? I am trying to figure out what is exceptable dress up for a little guy. I did make him his own apron today, more like a bar apron out of blue fabric with different balls. He usually puts on Alyssa's yellow apron with lady bugs...gotta man him up

Awww. he's a cutie.

LOL! She did a good job. It's not fuzzy or anything and well centered. Didn't know you were letting your hair go gray.

LOL! I wish I still had a photo of my little brother when we were little kids. We would play house with the girl who lived next door and we made him dress up in ladies' clothes. We actually had a picture of that, but I don't know what happened to it. Maybe my sis has it. I don't think it did any lasting damage.

I've been busy working on my card for PSC and watching General Conference on BYU-TV.

Going to meet my GF to see The Hunger Games later today.

My yard man just stopped by. I had called his cell phone because I thought he was going to come earlier. He looked at the 2 spots where I want him to plant and mulch and gave me a price. Said he probably won't get to all of it today. Maybe can fix the front bed and plant, but will have to do the mulching on Monday. Gave me a price so I can just leave his check under the mat as I usually do.

I took a few pictures when I was out in the back yard earlier . Here is one of my bottlebrush bush. It's the first time it's bloomed in the 2 years that I've had it. The other is my gardenia bush . The blooms on it now are starting to fade, but it's got at least a half dozen more buds on it. It's the first time in 2 years that it has bloomed also. Oh, wait, it had 1 blossom on it last year. But I transplanted it 3 years ago and it hasn't bloomed since then until now. I can't wait until one year it is covered with blossoms.

Being tired and in pain is expected. I hope he has an easy recovery.

I'm not sure how he feels, but I know that I prefer for my family to leave if I am in the hospital - my mom is the same way. Hopefully, he feels teh same way and isn't upset because she left.

Jaydin was interested in seeing it, wow I did not care to at all,
I was surprised Ali and Brooke read the books,but Brooke did at school
Yes, Jaydin loved it. Of course, Jonah and I read the books. After reading them, we really wanted to see how well they did the movie. I wasn't sure if Jaydin would enjoy it, but she really did and has talked about it non-stop since.

I finished Jaydin's dress today. I'll post pictures next week when she wears it. I did take some today, but I'm not showing it off until Easter. It's really not a big deal for those of you who sew. It's a simple dress with an underskirt and pockets. It was just a major accomplishment for me. I'm very, very pleased with how it turned out and what it looks like on her. Very 'sweet'. There's nothing 'grown up' about it. There's just too much out there to make the little ones look more grown up than they should. I want her to stay little for as long as she can, ya know??
