It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Anyone who knows my dad knows that he loves "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." We always get togther to watch the show as a family. This being the tradition, Lacey had to have a special outfit just for grandpa! It's a pinafore dress with a crossover back, I altered a pair of jeans with an applique and ruffles at the hem.


Little girls are such much fun to dress up - ribbons, bows, ruffles, but sometimes I just look at my boys; their plain, simple, rough and tumble selves and they take my breath away. I can't believe how mature and handsome they look in this photo. They are growing up so fast.

Lil Turkey A-line

We are about to head off to grandma's for Thanksgiving lunch. Just had to sahre Lacey's turkey dress! I just love this brown corduroy! Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall Splendor

This is a little fall set I made for Lacey. A dress, coordinating appliqued pants and matching applique sash. The colors in this fabric are gorgeous!

Mountain Getaway

Travis and I decided to head up to Asheville and The Biltmore Estate while the boys were away for the weekend. The weather was nice and the scenery was gorgeous. Lacey's favorite thing to do was splash in all the fountains on the Biltmore grounds. The child loves water! It was nice to have a weekend away!

Costume Parade!

I spent the better part of a month, of and on, making all these costumes - all for one night of fun. Cody decided, after spying a wig at Hallowen Express, to be Elvis. Well, Elvis wouldn't be Elvis without his bejeweled polyester cape. I spelled out "Elvis" in sequins! Caleb and Dylan wanted to be pirates. ARGH! I made their vests, pants, and red sashes for their waists. These were fun to make. Lacey was Little Bo Peep. Complete with pink gingham dress, white underdress, pants, and LOTS of white eyelet trim. She had to have her little shepherd's crook too. None of my photos are really good. Nobody was in te mood for a photo shoot!! More to come on all our Halloween festivities...
