All dressed up..

...but too "Croupy" to go...to church that is. They woke up "barking" like seals...Anjolie and Lily with a fever :( I made the girls, all three, some skirts for church, even though they are a little on the casual side. My mom got the material for me, and I made Anjolie and Lily a 6 panel skirt. I made Brianna a regular skirt with elastic in the back only. I am so not talented when it comes to sewing things...Oh well. I will just keep practicing...when I get the chance :)

Awesome job on the skirts, Heather!! They are adorable! I'm an AWFUL sewer, or seamstress, or whatever. I have SO MUCH material it isn't even funny. I REALLY need to get to it!! Cute pics for the week, too! Loved it all!!

Heather, your girls are beautiful!
You did a great job on those skirts. Life is never boring at your house, huh? :) Let's see, hand soap in the couch, fruit loops up the nose and liquid soap in the dish washer; who were you suggesting that back massage for?
Pictures are wonderful thanks for sharing!
Hope every one is feeling better soon.

LOL about the back massage OF COURSE it is for my husband!! ;)thanks ladies...actually, those were little foam circles that go on bracelets...I had to use some tweezers to get 3 out of Brianna's nose!!

So, Ms Dawn, I have been checking your blog...*ahem* how ARE YOU?! I didn't even realize you were expecting until a couple of posts ago!!

You did a great job on the skirts, Heather. They look great. Too bad the girls couldn't show off their mommy's workmanship!

Hope they're feeling better soon.

Oh TOO FUNNY, Heather. THAT's why I wasn't posting for that couple of weeks, I was SOOOO sick. Go back and look at my post from Sept 21st, and then Oct 14th. I think they are still on the main page. I'll be posting more soon. I have SO much I want post, but never have the energy!! :) Getting better though. I had wondered why you hadn't said anything. Goofy girl!!

Heather said...

:) Sorry Dawn!! CONGRATULATIONS!! Aww I feel terrible for you. ((hugs)) I am praying for you.

Thanks Kristi, yes I hope we all feel better soon :( I am actually worse this morning! I think I have the whole head cold thing going on.

The skirts are adorable...don't knock your sewing ability -- the kids appreciate the flexibility and simplicity more than a lot of zippers, buttons and restrictive do-dads.

Have you tried a cool-mist vaporizor with some tea-tree oil in the water? It works for my croupy-cough kids everytime. (I think it's safe...been doing it for years.)

Good job, Heather! Cute skirts! It's been so long since I did any sewing. Sigh. How you manage all this, I just don't know! :)
