DEARS- The Dogs of Proud Spirit

Karen McCurio was our hostess this evening. She made us all a delicious dinner as well as handmade DEARS tags.

This was a FABULOUS book! If you are an animal lover of any kind you will feel so blessed that there are people like this around to rescue little lost souls, give them love and a wonderful home. I would highly recommend this book. 5 stars.

The best catch ever...

My "not so little" Brody with his first catch of the year out of our lake...he was so proud!

Mariann's 66th Birthday

This is the month of birthdays in our family...Lori is on the 11th, Charlotte on the 16th, Pat on the 17th and Mariann ends the month on the 27th...It is so much fun celebrating. We decided to go all out this year for Mariann and Sean went out and bought 4, 2 1/2 lb lobsters...the kids had a ball helping us crack open the claws. What a fun memory for all of us!

I was so glad that Charlotte and I could come and cheer Brody on. He was so proud to be in the Bike a Thon and on top of that to earn a medal just make his day. It was fun to see Tristen and Brighton riding their bikes too.

Pillowcase Dresses

I made this one for Charlotte to wear on Easter...the top fabric is all little bunnys.

Charlotte modeling the second dress I made...a fun bright one!

Sherry and I got together today to sew these adorable pillowcase dresses for the girls. The first ones took us about 3 hours and then the second one only took about an hour. Like anything...the first one is a trial run, working out the kinks and the second one is a breeze. I loved sewing with my girlfriend...its always more fun to do a project like this with someone. I found the free pattern on the internet... I just googled "free pillowcase dress pattern".
