I'm not quite ready to blog again, (lots of "real life" has prevented me from finishing my big organization project), but that's okay... because interruptions are part of "real life" too. But just so you won't worry, I thought I'd take a few minutes to post a 'Wednesdays With My Mom'. On this Wednesday, we took over one of the Sibling's group gifts that had to be ordered, therefore came after Christmas. She was completely thrilled. Our wonderful sister, June, helped Mom pick this one out at Coldwater Creek one day in December. But they didn't have her size, so they ordered it and had it sent. Below, holding the beautiful new bag my sister, Diana, gave my mom. Next, we ran over to June's to show her how it fit and ended up spending a little time with her. Great day!!
See these adorable little girls below? Well this is also them, below... These silly girls decided they wanted to make new black dresses for New Year's Eve. Thank heavens my sweet friend, Margie (above), was in for the insanity and came over to help me, help the girls pull this off. Beautiful J's dress: Beautiful Sara's dress: WORTH EVERY MINUTE!!! : ) We couldn't have done it without you, Margie. Thanks for coming over to help. : ) ** I'm working hard putting the house, garage, and studio back together. We also came down with terrible wipe-you-out colds over here after Christmas. Don't feel obligated to leave a comment here. I haven't yet answered even one from the last post. I'll be the first to admit, "I'm a piece of work"!!! Looking forward to coming back to blogging soon. M.L.
Actually about that PHOTO! Sara was taking candid photos one night while the whole Fam was at Chick-fil-A. I decided to use it because it made me look younger. When my married daughter ,Emily, saw it she said ever so sweetly (really), "Ah Mom, you're not wearing any make-up in that photo." I said, "Yeah, but it makes me look younger than I am." I chose younger with no make-up as opposed to older (with) make-up. Go figure. I'm vain ok?
