Ok, What Next?!

I finished the dress this morning and I am loving how it turned out. I held back with embellishments and decided to keep it simple with just the i-cord band and heart closure. I tried it on Zo-Zo this morning. She loved it and got mad at me for taking it off. But you will have to wait till her birthday to see it on her. Not too much longer, Febuary 15th. And now Kaiya wants one in blue, her favorite color.
We got just the tiniest bit of snow overnight, just enough to dust the ground. But do you really think this stopped my girls from going out to play? I don't think so. As soon as they looked out the window, Kaiya ran to their room and started getting dressed. So there they were, before we even got a chance to eat breakfast or brush our teeth. It was very short lived, however, as my wee North Carolinians aren't used to the snow and did not stay out for more than 5 min.
It's all gone now. Perhaps they will be a little braver next time.
