Little Girls Dressed in White

Here they are, my little girls dressed in white. We had such a great experience this weekend and got to baptise Sara and Tessa at our family reuion. It will always be such a great memory to them in the years to come that they got to be baptised with all their cousins. They were so excited and cute!!
(Tessa is on the left and Sara is on the right in both pix)

Here are there dresses that I made them for their baptism. They picked out the material and the patterns and I sewed them together.

Birthdays, galore!!!!

So we celebrated ALL the girls' Birthdays. It was a fun and cakey week!!!
We started with Clara turning 3 and she wanted a pink cake. So Doug made her a pink cake. He has become the Birthday cake maker in the family. And the girls are all very excited about that.

Then we had Amber's Birthday. #5, although someitmes she says she is turning 7. (Yes, her actual Birthday is in Sept. but all she understands about that is that everyone else gets cake and presents and she doesn't.) It has worked out well to get them all over. Her pictures were all blurry, because she never holds still.

Then we has Sara and Tessa's. They turned 8!!! Yes, they are so excited to be 8 and in a couple of weeks they will get baptised. I'm not sure who was more excited about this gift they got, them or Doug. (It's a pellet gun)

Here is Doug (the cake maker) with Sara & Tessa's patriotic cake. He did a wonderful job and everyone oooooed and ahhhhhhed all over it.

It is nice to have all the cake gone!!!

That which runs through. . .

We have just returned from my sister's in Omaha. We went there for her oldest son's baptism and her youngest son's blessing. (She has three others in between) Yes, it is a long drive, but it was a fun visit. And apparently I returned just in time. Because since that day (Friday) I have not been more than a few feet from my bathroom. Yes, it is the wicked downside of traveling, too much fast food. And boy they mean it when they say FAST!! Everything has quickly run through me, faster than I can eat it. So now I am on that wonderful -Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast, Yogurt- diet. Yes, BRATY is here again. Can I tell you a person can only live on bananas and toast for so long. It is not fun!!! I am grateful that I am the only one who seems to have come down with it. Hopefully, it stays that way. I hope all your vacations end more plesantly.
