Random Happy Tuesday Thoughts

 Linking up today with Stacy Uncorked and Comedy Plus!

The grandbabies (7 months and 3 years) and their parents have been visiting with us for a few days!  I think as we get older, we forget just how hard it is to have children, but we did get a  taste of it as a reminder.  We babysat (babysitted?) for a few hours one night so they could go to dinner, and it was hard!  But we sure do love those little girls!

I made them each a dress.  I don't know if they fit, but it was good to go back to a pattern I had used 2 years ago and to see how my skills have changed since then.  Here are the dresses:

This dress was supposed to have five buttons in the back, but I thought snaps would be easier.  Well, I was wrong.  They were so difficult to sew on and to match up!  It might have been harder for me, but I think the snaps will help them because, once sewn on, a snap is easier than a button.

How about some giggles?

This would be the perfect meme if it said "Hobby Lobby" instead of Michael's.  Not that I don't love Michael's.  I do, but Hobby Lobby is much bigger around here.  I could spend hours in there!  

And just a few more:

That's all for today!
