new dresses and nightgowns!!

The kids stayed at my mom's last night and again tonight. I've managed to paint Briar's room, stack a load of firewood (with Todd doing the chopping), mow the lawn and list SEVEN dresses and nightgowns!!!
This week, I've been trying to focus on all the things around here that have been left undone and are dangling there annoying me. I am so hopeful that as soon as I have some of these things behind me, I can just fixate on the stuff that comes up....not the stuff that happened a year, four months and nine days ago. I'm sick of dealing with all the paperwork that goes along with a death. There are mountains of it! You'd think that the government would be able to have some program that would announce the death of one of their citizens to ALL their agencies once a death certificate had been issued. Anyhow....Enough of that rant......

Ooh, will you be posting pics of Briar's new room? I love house remodeling pics. Well, ok...I love house pics in general!

You are making THE cutest dresses Jackie! I seriously wish I could buy one a week! :O)

My daughter is going to be SO excited to see the new ones when they come! I can't wait either. You're doing a super job!!!

I hate to say this, but I've got one more thing to add to your to-do list -- I want an apple dress for Hillary! No, make that seven different ones, for each day of the week... STAT, OK?

LOL. Seriously though. Consider this an official request for an apple dress for a 2-3 year old. Your dresses are so beautiful, I enjoyed having a sneak peak when I picked up the bed. Really wonderful work, Jackie!
