I am still here I promise.
It has been crazy here since Christmas.
It was my birthday on the fifth.
It was the big 4-0.
Good looking surprised me with a party,
Grandma Kath and Pap Bill came.
After they left my brother came.
He is staying here for a couple of days.
My brother lives in Samoa and we haven't seen him in almost three years.
It has been so much fun, and I have had a hard time getting back into the swing of things
since Christmas break.
I also forgot to show you the girls Christmas dresses
and they were fabulous.
I used this Susan Stewart pattern, and I am in love with it.
I used some super cute fabric from Riley Blake,
it is from the lost and found line,
and it sparkles.
I first saw the fabric over the summer, and knew it had to be their Christmas dresses.
We stuck with tradition and went to see the Tabernacle Choir sing,
Don't worry I was very aware of my shoes.
Then of course we went to Little america for breakfast,
the girls favorite part of the tradition.
Keeping with tradition, I was sewing the night before, this time the big girls skirts.
Here they are.
I sometimes wonder what it would be like
if they could smile a real smile, and not these big faker pants smiles.
The little girls love to take pictures on the stairs,
here is baby sister...
I will be back, but right now I am suppose to be taking my brother
to meet my sister for breakfast.
It is the last day they are going to staying at my house.
They are moving to my sisters tonight, and then back to Samoa next week.
I have to show you the presents I made for them,
but not now because we are going to be late.
