It’s late.

Yesterday I worked hard on Eden’s costume. I’m about 2/3rds finished. She’ll be Dorothy. As I cut the fabric Lilah asked if she could be Dorothy.

Uh, no.

I bought Lilah a wand to go with Glenda’s outfit and I think that will make her very happy, and it will probably make Eden jealous.
I made some dumb mistakes while sewing and I added a little detail that if I were to ever charge for this costume I would add another $20 to the price just so someone would know how annoying it was to do. I’ll explain once I get pictures of the finished product.

Today I went and bought some bows for our family pictures, plus some that I just wanted and some for Andrea. I went to the women’s house, since we have met before and it was on short notice, so she gave me a good discount. She had a five year old son that was way too friendly for Lilah’s comfort, but she got over it and they did play and have a good time as long as I was in the same room as her. Then we played at the park in the woman’s complex. The girls had lots of fun, but wondered where the swings were. It was a small park. I was happy there were no swings because then I would have been put to work pushing rather than just enjoying them playing together.

We took family pictures tonight. Finally. The pictures turned out OK, but my one complaint is we did not get a very good family picture, because she only took three, so we had just three shots to choose from and the first one was out of the question, so it left two mediocre shots. I miss my sister’s friend Marie doing our photo’s, but her photo company is just way to expensive for us now that she’s left Penny’s and has gone off on her own.

We were the last ones of the day so I’m sure that made her speed things up, plus she was working with 3 babies before we came. One thing I know is you just have to take a lot of pictures to get nice pictures when children are involved. If it wasn’t a 20 minute wait to view the pictures, so we could even order the ones we wanted, I would have insisted on more family pictures to be taken, but it was 7pm and we were all tired from smiling and keeping Eden from messing up her hair.

Lilah and Eden were cute. For once Eden was shy and Lilah was all about the smiles.
A little too smiley for Jon, but I thought she was adorable.
