Playing "catch up"...

... on photos, that is.

Here's Miss Gracie, who has the same hair-do as her beloved Polly Pocket.  So cute!Kate's 4th grade play was that week before Spring Break.  She was the "Yellow Rose of Texas".  She had to dress kind of like a saloon girl... believe me, this costume gave me fits.  I tried to order something off the net, but I couldn't find anything that would work. So then, I asked a friend if the local Civic Theatre might have anything that would work.  They had the skirt, which was too big, but I was able to alter it.  I went to Hobby Lobby and found some feathers and a boa, and then bought some satin to make her a little vest.  By the time I finished tinkering with it, it looked GREAT.

She was wonderful in the play, and her big solo was awesome.  She has a lovely voice (and I'm sure I'm not a BIT biased! ha ha)

Also during that week before Spring Break was Abby's first grade Western Day.  Is this not the cutest cowgirl you've ever seen?
Happy Friday, and Happy Weekend!

They're all three growing too fast. It's been too long since we have seen them. Love, Mom
