BIRTHDAY GIRL







Last night we had a BBQ for the Birthday Girls.
Since our schedules are so full the dinner had to wait till we could all gather together, no small feat in this house.
This year gift theme is mainly handmade, {be still my heart}
Caitlin in her birthday month { June } received a handmade dress and a gorgeous reproduction quilt she had her eye on since I started , cutting, piecing and quilting it together.
But last night she was showing us the gift she gave to herself...new tires. Her dad and I are thrilled with the tires, we had spent several anxious hours worried about her driving around on tires that could hardly be thought as safe. She is pleased with her new tires and the fact she was able to purchase them, taking another giant step into as she says “the adult-grown up world”.  However her facial expression looks confused here reading her warranty papers, oh the joys of being an “adult”.
Erin also received a handmade dress . She was over the moon with the fits like a glove, though had a wee little problem getting into the dress. “Erin the dress unbuttons all down the front”, Erin “oh that works much better Mom”. We were laughing so much, took a few minutes to untangle her from the dress to get it on properly.
Erin requested a quilt too, “ no modern one please mom”. My heart melts when my children want me to make them handcrafted items.
I also finished a sweater for her { no pictures yet }.
Besides the hand crafted items each girl opened their own small shop vac. I am always amazed when the girls squeal with delight when receiving useful, you might need this someday gifts.
The new packages of toothbrushes sent them over the top!
Happy Birthday Girls
