life is flying by like a blurr!
when I posted that POPPY DIP orders would stop on December 1st ~ it was crazy!! ~ 40 orders in 2 days from that post!!
so the fabric is now completely gone...
the sewing is now done!! (finally!)
my machines are going to shop so that I can't even THINK about sewing!!
hope to come back next year after we are settled with our little boy!

The Lord blessed us with such provision through the sewing of so many little girl dresses/twirls!!

now to rest and get ready to travel to see our
little Samson Jude!!

we celebrated Esther's 5th birthday on November 3rd!!
Christa ~~ my sweet sister-in-law ~~ flew in for the festivities and to show off her belly !!
She's having a BOY!!

just had to include this photo!! shows real life here at our home!!
"it's my party and i'll cry if i want to...."

We also celebrated Adeline and Madison's 17th birthday!!
Our 3 girls received TOMS!!
"TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One"
