Kitty Dress

Ok, finally.....

It's Done!

Phew! I got youngest Princess' dress done. Remember, the one I was complaining about? I didn't get to start it till about 7:00 last night. I stayed up until 1 this morning and got up again at 6. The wedding shower was at 10am. I finished it at 9:15. There's some spots around the ruffles that I should take out and redo since it's a bit crooked, but it turned out pretty cute!

I'm trying to get a pic off the camera, but for some reason, the software isn't being recognized

Alzheimer's Memory Walk

Oh my goodness! Alzheimer's is such a horrid disease! People end up a fraction of what they used to be. My grandpa had Alzheimer's. He was a state patrol officer for years, so it was so hard to watch this proud man's mind deteriorate. He couldn't even remember to do everyday things. He couldn't be left alone, so that hurt his pride. My grandma had to take care of him just as you would a young child, such as Grandpa knew he was supposed to do "something" such as brush his teeth, but without Grandma there to constantly remind him, he couldn't remember exactly what "something" was.

Luckily, there are people who care about finding a cure for this horrible disease. The Alzheimer's Association has been searching for a cure and supporting these people who need it. You, too, can support this worthy cause, by partaking in a Memory Walk in your area. There are many around the country, I'm sure there's one near you! I can't urge you enough to get out there and support this association, because you never know when this disease will strike your grandparents or parents.

Go now and sign up! Be a team captain! Get your family and co-workers to help your team, get the neighborhood to be a team, get moms from your child's class to be a team! There's really no excuse not to! Please help this worthy cause!

Don't You Hate That?

Youngest Princess is in my friend's wedding in a month. I'm making her flower girl dress. I cut out the pattern, and according the pattern back, it should fit fine. My grandma and I held it up to Princess and it needs some added to the chest. No problem, right? Well, before I cut up the flower girl material, I went to Joann's and bought some other material to make a dress out of to see how my alterations will turn out. Princess picked some kitty fabric and I have to admit, it is adorable. I wanted the Mickey Mouse material, but I got vetoed. ;) So anyway, tonight I sit down to cut out the material (the job I hate most) and realized I didn't wash the material. UGH! I've been washing all day, I could have thrown it in with those loads, so now I have to wait until the current load is done so I can throw it in.


This is too funny! Go read this eBay auction. This mom, Dawn, is a fantastic writer. And look! She's also got a blog! Good reading!

Back to School

Wow! I can't believe the summer's almost over! This week, Oldest Princess has locker assignments and we have to pay her fees. Ay yi yi. I just paid bills too, well attempted to might be a better phrase. ;-) Anyway, next week, Youngest Princess has a BBQ to meet her teacher. She already knows her, but it'll be nice to get reacquainted.
