Sorry I'm late here, but I have to comment on the boy with the pants below his butt. When I was a boy scout leader, we went on a road trip, and there was a kid with us that thought that it was ok to wear his pants that way. I told him that if he did, that I would pull them down. He did it at the camp fire one night and I did just that. Actually he caught them before they reached his ankles, but he kept his pants where they belonged after that. No more problems for the rest of the trip. ;)

My DH gave a birthday party at our house on Saturday for a very dear friend he has known for many years. When he arrived all of the guest (20) men all sang Happy Birthday to him. To hear these guys sing together was so special and so beautiful. These guys are from all walks of life and all ages, they sounded like a choir.

Sunday was so special. We had dinner at my daughters, and I got to sit and just enjoy the kids as they went swimming and used the trampoline. Watching Cade and Carsons dog run and jump into the pool while Ethan and Olivia's Schnauzer ran for cover was a kick I truly had a wonderful day.

Babe, It sounds like she is not the only one that started to twirl!!!!!!!!

Remember the posts in the beginning of this project ? The uncertainty over being able to work with the fabric, concerns over how to do certain steps, ripping out stitches, you've come along way, Babe!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations!
