I recently took an old button-up gingham blue shirt of mine that had a medium sized stain on the back and refashioned it into a dress for Macon. I used the cuff end of the sleeves to make the sleeves for her dress. I also made a pair of tights from an old white camisole. It looks really cute with the dress. The legs have lace around the bottoms. We think it turned out super cute!

We had a second baby shower this weekend in NC. It was hosted by my sister-in-law, Stephanie and my Aunt Gail. It was very lovely. Scott and I had a wonderful time seeing family and friends that we hadn't seen in a while. The food was yummy. We had delicious pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, coconut chicken strips, tea sandwiches, and more. And the addictive apricot punch. We received many great gifts. I'll be posting photos of some of them soon!

We've reached the final stretch and exciting stuff is ahead. As we have to properly document it, we got a brand new camera (thanks to Scott's parents, Kaye and Gordon!) It is pretty cool. I just started playing around with it this evening, but it seems like a great buy so far. Our second baby shower is this weekend. Can't wait to really put it to the test! (Sorry no photos from the first shower yet. We forgot our camera's battery and I'm waiting on Lyndsay to get me a CD of her photos.)
I have searched high and low for a tiny black sweater to go with "To Be Determined's" Christmas dress (which is a red and black plaid with a white peter pan collar.) There was not one to be found. So......once again Etsy.com to the rescue. I found a wonderful knitter in Turkey! She has knitted this lovely little sweater (without a pattern, just with a photo I provided.) Her name is Gulten and her shop is Blue Moon. If you need any knitting done, I'd highly recommend her. Not to mention that she uses very high quality yarns and her rates are extremely reasonable! (And it only costs $4.00 to ship such a thing from Turkey, believe it or not.)

We picked up our swing tonight with some of the money we received at the baby shower last week. I love it. It matches the living room perfectly. And it is apparently the last one of these in the southeastern US. I checked online today and only one Target seemed to have one left.....and now they have none! It was really easy to assemble. It has an elephant theme and a place to plug in your MP3 player, which we really liked. Napster has lots of lullabyes, FYI.
