Some Mish and Some Mash

I can't believe that May is almost half way over! YIKES!! School is out for D in two weeks and both of us will be soooo sad. I need to find some activities for her ASAP.

Mother's Day was great. Jeff bought the earring backs to my first mother's day diamond studs (I had lost one and just never got around to ordering them) and had the girls write up the sweetest cards (per Darsie, my favorite food is salad). It was a really good day. I made this sewn card for mom along with a strawberry pot full of plants. She was really pleased.

We took the girls on Monday to a special Farm Day put on for the special ed students in our county. As you can see from the photos, they both had a blast! Elise glommed on to a bag of popcorn and we had to almost rip it from her fist to ride a horse. She was NOT happy about that whatsoever.

The girls are both doing so well. I really need to get some video of Darsie up since her walk is so beautiful. Everyone who sees her comments on how great she looks.

Sewing is going well, too! I may have to raise the white flag of surrender this week and drop the ladies off at my mom's for a few hours as I have orders for four bags, a shirt, and a couple of belts. Add to that the quilting bee that I am woefully behind on and I have a couple days of steady sewing ahead of me. It is good news, though. I'm so happy my goods are being so well accepted. I hope to have some new items up soon, but that just matters on how the sewing of ordered items goes.

I finally got my "garden" planted. I've had seedlings growing for a month now or so but with all our yard work going on for the new shop we're building, there isn't a suitable space for my garden. So, it went into pots. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all works out with it. I need to replant some of the seeds as a few didn't survive the long seedling hood and outgrew their baby pots and died. So sad.

Take care everyone!

Hi! This is a mish and mash comment.

I love that card, you are so creative.

Farm Day is such a cool idea! It looks like the girls had a great time. My kids love animal farms, too.

I am soooo sorry I have been AWOL, I think you know there's been a lot going on these past couple of weeks. So, belated but very enthusiastic congratulations on your big news!!!! I am excited for you, and excited that you are going first with having kid #3, as I am still on the fence and can just live vicariously through you. :)

Happy belated birthday to beautiful little Elise, too. And I am so psyched Darsie's walking so well--yes, put up a video!

And, more congrats, on the successful walk. It is awesome you raised money. Oh, and holy cow, I won something? I never win anything. Only my sister, who has won all these radio contests over the years. Now she is pregnant, and I am going to surprise her with this baby blanket.

My name is Amy and I have a daughter with cerebral palsy. She is nearly 4, and she was a preemie too. I'd love it if you'd check out my blog about her...your girls are adorable!

Best wishes to you for a full-term and happy pregnancy!
