Holidays Take 2

Christmas Eve

My aunt is a fabulous seamstress. She made Mary Margaret a one-of-a-kind wedding dress with all the accessories (garter, slip, veil, flowers, shoes, and ring) and she made Harper Jane a bridesmaid dress with all accessories. They adore these dresses!!!

Our mantle with the new stocking for baby Douglas #3!!!

Raising a Southern Daughter

Yesterday, Harper and I were going to meet my sister for lunch. She insisted on taking her baby doll with us. We were trying to hurry -- wait, I was trying to hurry.

SIDE NOTE: Children (or at the very least my children) do NOT understand the following phrases: We are late, please hurry, or get your tail in gear.

Harper sadly dropped her baby down the brick stairs while going out the side door. It was a sad event. Harper started to frown and she had that trembling lip (that just about kills me). She rushed down the steps, picked up that baby, and said ever-so-sweetly, "Come here baby. Let me hold you. Bless your heart!"

Now, friends, that is a true Southern lady!
