Some Things from This Week

This morning I made the last piece to go with Patsy’s Christmas ensemble, the tights.  I don’t know why, but they are always the last thing I make.  We even had time for our photo shoot!  Afterwards, she wanted to go up on the shelf to visit with the other three girls who are all dressed up in their Christmas dresses.  They look so cute together in a group, don’t they?  This is the largest this group of models will get before the Christmas ensembles start going into new closets to dress other little girls for the holidays.  (I always take the photos of the ensembles without their sweaters on last, so that is why no one is wearing one, just in case you were wondering where the sweaters had gone off to.)

It was my husband’s birthday on Wednesday, so happy 29th birthday to him…

… just kidding, he’s really not 29, although he wishes he were 29 again!  I picked up a pizza, lasagna, and spaghetti/meatballs from a favorite carry out spot for dinner.  I know, too much food!  I made a chocolate chip cake (from scratch) for his birthday cake.  I barely had enough frosting; it wasn’t the best choice to make only a half of a recipe, but it was plenty sweet enough in my opinion.chocolate chip birthday cake 869The little beggar is in his favorite spot.  Nope, he didn’t get a crumb of cake, although he got a few bits of pizza crust.

Bye for now!  Talk to you soon!
