Another sewing project

When Jana was in town she was gracious enough to give me a sewing lesson. Sewing has become kind of an obsession for me lately. I love it, and I only wish I had known that I would love it this much because I would have picked it up a long time ago!
This is the dress we made.

Do you recognize the signature Molly dance move in the last picture?!?

Oh Grana!!!!!

Molly is a real routine kid. When she does something once, she expects to do it again and again. When Grana came out to visit a few weeks ago she taught Molly how to march and they read a lot of books.

So everyday Grana was here, Molly wanted to march. So they marched!

And after reading books with Grana in the rocking chair with the blanket on, every time Grana offered to read to Molly, she would go get her blanket and climb in to the rocking chair.

The favorite book was
"Do you see a Mouse?"
I love this picture because youcan see Molly's hands turned up asking, "Where's the mouse?"
We loved having Grana here and we have done a lot of marching since she left!

Mommy...I'm bored!

I guess Molly got a little bored while I was cleaning the other day. I turned around and this is what I found. She had rolled up the carpet and was crawling through it.

Last, but not least

Eleven years ago today I had my mission farewell.Going on a mission was a great thing for me. I learned a lot and I pull from those experiences often. I miss Croatia, and I am grateful that I was able to meet the people I met and learn the things I learned.
I was also grateful that I was able to be at two of my best friends' weddings and two of my brothers' weddings. Both couples had their weddings planned for later in the year. I was so excited when they told me they had moved them up. This picture is from my open house with the new additions to the family!
It was a crazy weekend to say the least!

We are still talking about 11 years ago!

The next day (11 years ago, today) My other best friend Belinda married my brother Everitt. This is a picture form their wedding of me and Betsy. I dont have any pictures of them scanned in to my computer, so this is from the day, and below is a picture of them from my wedding.

Belinda and I share a lot of great memories together. Two of my best friends becoming my sisters-in-law in one weekend...pretty awesome!
but wait, we are not done with our flashback. Come back tomorrow to see what happened the next day!
