I'm in the home stretch..

....the pink slips are made, the hems are done, the embroidery is in progress... With just a few hours of work left it looks like I'm going to make it! Molly told me last night that this is her favorite most special Easter dress ever. Oh how she can melt her mama's heart! and make every little stitch well worth the effort. I remember the year of my favorite Easter dress too. It was green and I felt so pretty all dressed up for such a special day. I was about Molly's age too. I hope to help create such special memories for my children. And I hope you all have a wonderful Easter Sunday too! (Maddie's dress)

Beautiful! And I am right there with you, finishing up last minute on my oldest's, but it is not that elaborate.

Oh my girls would swoon to have such lovely dresses! This year we have two going to church in a Miss Lily dress, one going in a Lily minus the top (long story on that one, but thankfully I had a contrast to convert it into a skirt) and the other in a store dress :( BUT, it is a dress she loves, reminds her of Nancy Drew. Maybe I should start now on next year's dresses...four dresses take awhile, I'm not sure how you do the intricate one's you do!

I love these, they are beautiful! Is the green dress the year me and you had the same one? Do you remember that? I know I have a picture at my mom's house. I loved that dress too. And remember the matching Punky Brewster shoes, lol.

Heather,

That's the one!!! I loved that dress! PLEASE scan that picture in and send it my way! How sweet that it was your favorite too! That is just so cool.

By the way, I have been thinking up more recipes for you too. I'm trying to come up with quick and easy -but not out of a box. Like chicken pot pie, meatball sandwiches, a Mexican chicken dish, and a couple more that I use too. Is there anything that your family doesn't like? Veggies, onions, Mexican, Chinese? We have a good homemade fried rice with teriyaki chicken too. Just let me know and I will have you cooking more in no time!

xoxo,
Samantha

PS. LOL! It's funny to be talking about our favorite matching Easter dresses and sharing recipes at the same time! We have grown up and turned into our moms! LOL!

Heather said...

Yes we have! I am sooo glad we have the internet these days, so that we can keep in touch! And no, there is nothing my family will not eat, we are not picky eaters at all! I'm excited, thank you so much! I will ask my mom if she will find that picture for me and I will see her in 2 weeks and get it. Oh and about the shared recipes, I remember my mom and your mom making the same chocolate and oatmeal cookies, yum!
