The theme for DGDs third birthday was pirate and her favorite color (of the day) was yellow. Costumes were encouraged. DH surprised me by asking if I'd make him a big shirt (yes - out of an old bed sheet). I dug around in the dark recesses of my closet and put together an outfit for me...bought a corset (was so glad when that thing came off!)...and away we went.
DH was fully dressed...earring and all...stopped at a station to fuel up the pickup. Don't you wish you'd been in the vehicle that pulled up behind us?! Sam said that the man looked at him, then ducked his head.
So, here's Sam shirt complete with lace at the cuffs!
(Be sure to look at our weapons...and yes, I had a pocket full of "ammo.")This message has been edited. Last edited by: KeepYouInStitches,
She was so sweet opening her presents. She got to pick each package in order of her preference. She oohed and ahhed each one. Took a minute or two to examine them, then her DM asked, Which one do you want to open next? She immediately popped up and DM grabbed the opened gift and passed it over to be placed on the table with the packaging tossed in the corner.
She did this with just about every gift she got and sometimes would run off to thank the person if they weren't in the room with us.
After thinking about what to get her, I finally had a brain storm and asked DH if he had time to make a jewelry box size treasure chest. Nope. I found several sizes of unfinished chests at Hobby Lobby...bought one of the Made in China things for DH to stain. Then I bought trinkets only a little girl would like and we filled it to the brim. She did - like it that is. She dug her fingers in, sorted through, hung a couple of bracelets on her arm and beads around her neck. This message has been edited. Last edited by: KeepYouInStitches,
How fun? Aren't we lucky to have sewing skills to make costumes? My parents dressed us all up as pirates for my 5th grade school's Halloween carnival. Such wonderful memories of Dad sword fighting with Mom.
When my youngest grandson turned six he wanted a clown party. My son phoned asking me to make the family costumes. He's 6'4" and DIL is 5'1" and the kids were short.i. Had him mail me measurements since they were based overseas. So happy they got there on time and fit. I was the best Grandma! LOL
Over the last three days, I've broken two fingernails and have had two to split. So yesterday I cut them - the rest of the anyway - off. I was complaining to DH. He said "That sea water is rough on hands and nails."
It took me a moment to "catch" what he was saying. Then I ROFLMBO
