My Baby Girl

Thirty years ago today this tiny little baby girl changed my life forever.  She surprised me on the last day of school.  She was born a couple hours after labor began...three weeks before I was expecting her.  I have loved her everyday even before I saw her.  She has been my first born, my wonderful daughter and my best friend.  I cannot imagine my life without her.  Seeing the wonderful wife and mother that she has become is such a blessing to me. I love you my little sweetheart and I miss sharing this important day with you.
Happy 30th Birthday, Jaime Elizabeth!

T- shirt Makeover

I started with a t-shirt and cut the neck band off.

Then I faced the neckline using bias tape. 
I made tucks on the sleeves.
I added a ribbon tie.
I added elastic to the neckband. 
Now Olivia has a girlie tunic made from a souvenir t-shirt.

Double Burrito Anyone?

Americans spend millions of dollars on toys every year and all kids really need is a rug and a Papaw willingly to roll them up in it!  They want to do this almost every time they come over.

Simple pleasures in life :)
