Easter 2012

April 13, 2012

For Easter this year, we went to 6:00 am Mass in Columbia.  We then went to the hospial there where our retired priest is.  After that we headed to the nursing home to bring some Easter cheer.  The only problem with Mass that early is that we didn’t take the time to get Easter photos at the house.  Joe took some with his i-phone and they are the only ones we have this year.   We hope you are having a Blessed Easter Octive!

My Easter bonnet was a Christmas present and I could not wait to wear it.  I received lots of compliments on it and one of the ladies at the nursing home actually laughed!  It was nice to be able to brighten her day!  LOL!

Charlotte’s New Skirt

November 26, 2011

Lately vintage clothing has been a little interest of mine.  This pattern was aquired on e-bay.  It is Simplicity 3874 from 1952.

And while I’m posting, MaryEllen finally got a new nightgown made by her Mom.


One More Nightgown

November 19, 2009

Finally finished is one more nightgown, this time for Charlotte, and this time done in nice, sturdy flannel material.  I am very pleased with the results.  We took pictures the morning after Charlotte had worn it to bed.  The girls were both so excited that they now both have nightgowns made by Mom.  MaryEllen had to get into the pictures, of course!  After we were done with the pictures, Charlotte said, “Let’s take our nightgowns, fold them, and put them under our pillows so we can wear them tomorrow!”  If I had know that, I might have made them sooner.  All their other PJs end up on their bedroom floor!


On the same day (I think), I was getting a red plaid dress for Veronica to wear.  MaryEllen asked if she and Charlotte could wear the dresses that they had like Veronicas.  So, we had to take pictures in their dresses. 

  We went on that day to try and take a picture for the Christmas card.  If we do use any of them, they will be less than perfect.  Someone always seems to have eyes closed, be making faces, or have their heads cut off.  However, Christmas not being any farther away, we may just have to use one of those pictures for the cards.

The Girls in the Spring 2009

April 10, 2009

First of all, we have one picture left over from the big snow that we got.  When we got another battery charger for my camera, this picture was left on it.

One beautiful spring day, the girls got into some spring dresses and we went out for a photo shoot.  It is so beautiful in Bodenburg in the Spring.  We are blessed to have so many beautiful blooms that I just cannot help but to take pictures.  As as matter of fact, we have even more blooms that need to be photographed.  Perhaps on Easter we’ll do some more.  For now, please let me indulge in these photos of the girls…

Little Miss Veronica does not like it when Mama puts her down!

Once Shabby the cat comes around, Veronica starts to feel much better.

This is a tree by our driveway.  This is the forth spring we have been here and I don’t remember seeing it more beautiful than this year:


Our yard sometimes reminds me of a beautiful park.  Whenever I get a chance to go outside, I am always so grateful for the beauty of God’s creation and for the opportunity to live in such a lovely spot.  Of course, we also give thanks for our beautiful children as well.  What a wonderful gift they all are, each and every one of them.  We are truly blessed.

Now we have a little special something:  Charlotte in the magnolia tree.  It reminds me of some of the fairy stories that the girls love so much.
