Oh My Oh My!
Where do I start?
Yes, Princess Pei Pei lost another tooth.
But her permanent teeth are growing
behind the baby teeth.
So you can't see much of a space.
We visited Discovery Kingdom
to celebrate Ahnalin's Chinaversary
and had a yummy, and super bad-for-us funnel cake sundae.
We went to our church retreat
at Westminster Woods
and this is the only picture I got!
Ahnalin loved playing all the fun games
and got soaking wet!
Our speakers were amazing
and I had so much fun being on the
drama team and singing all weekend.
Sadly, India had to stay home because of her
I probably forgot to tell you!
Now that India is all graduated from the
Disney College Program,
she is in college full time here in Santa Rosa.
She is in the musical,
"My Fair Lady"!!
As we have walked to school each morning,
we are often greeted by the sight of
hot air balloons that have landed in the school yard.
I had never seen one being deflated before,
so this was fascinating!
Ahnalin asked Daddy to take
the training wheels off her bike,
and in about 2 seconds flat,
she rode away!
As to sewing,
well, between being "Taxi Mama"
and doing alterations for a gajillion people,
I have not been super creative with fun sewing.
I am not complaining about the alterations jobs,
as they provide much needed "extra" (not really) income.
But I did manage to make a valance for my dining room.
This is some much loved fabric from my stash.
I don't have a lot of each fabric,
and I believe the floral is out of print.
So I am having to be fairly creative
in order to get 2 more valances out of it!
And as usual, there is no pattern for this.....
I have lots of Fall clothes cut out for Ahnalin
and need to get busy sewing them!
It has been very hot here,
so she has been happy still wearing
But I need to get busy!
But I would be so grateful if you have any
extra prayers to spare,
if you would send them my way.
I have been struggling with
some pretty extreme pain and
swelling in my left hand.
Thankfully, we now have medical insurance,
so I was able to schedule a doctor appointment!
I get to see my new doc in just over a week
and I am praying for some answers regarding my hand.
But in the meantime,
I have decided to try
the anti-inflammatory diet.
It can't hurt me any more than
my hand hurts already.
And I am wayyyyyyyyyyyy too young
to feel this rotten.
I mean, I have sewing to do!
I hope to have some fun things
to show soon.
