We celebrated my birthday on the 17th of this month. Now I'm the ripe old age of 23. (Jeepers, I'm such an old lady...) We went over to my parents' house for dinner and cake. I got a gift certificate to get a haircut and highlights from my parents, which is a good thing because I need it! And Andrew has so graciously offered to fix my sewing machine as a late birthday present. It needs a new motor and I can't wait to get it up and running so I can make stuff!
My mom made a delicious banana split cake for my birthday. I used to request this cake every year while growing up. It was so yummy!
I made Holly a hairbow to match her outfit with my new Bow-dabra, which is my favorite thing right now. It makes making hairbows so easy! This was the first bow I made with my Bow-dabra, so notice how it is as big as Holly's whole head. I got a little carried away. Here she is with my mom. Cute!
I also made Holly a dress to wear to church. This was my first time making a dress for her, so I was a little nervous. I found a really easy pattern online and made my mom supervise me while making the dress. Here is a picture of Holly in her dress and the matching hairbow I made with my trusty Bow-dabra.
Every week, I have the intention of taking a picture of her in her dress. However, I foolishly think that it would be a good idea to wait until after church to do this. As you can probably guess, we have all had it by the time we get home and it never gets done. Therefore, during the week Holly and I play dress-up. Today I put her back in this dress and took pictures, but she did not want to cooperate with me and put on a happy face for the photo shoot. She somehow managed to pull her headband down over her eyes and take the bow off the headband. That told me the photo shoot was, sadly, over.
