WOW.. I found this way back from fall and forgot to post it-some pictures from Homecoming (then added MY dance pictures for a little shock factor).
I couldn’t help but remember my days of nails and hair-dos, dates and dresses, dinners and PICTURES, corsages and boutonnieres. Some things have changed (including home decor in the background) and some things haven’t (like my love for my fun friend). I especially like the newly painted red manicure and the perfect puffy sleeves from 1992, Christmas Formal. Do you think it’s weird that we have a real wood burning fireplace in Mesa, AZ? I do! I remember it being used all of about three times in the 18 years that I lived there. AND, those stockings-my mom made those for us and still hangs them to this day. She made them and we love them!
Our theme this week (oh, wait… it was last week and I’m just getting caught up) was Tired. Man, that word is something I use in my every day vocabulary! I’m usually tired after I wake up and certainly more tired before I go back to bed. I’ll blame the weather.
Today, I ran upstairs feeling pretty proud of my quick jaunt up and saw these balloons from the night before. I was out of breath and well… so were the balloons. They were afloat last night and somehow they managed to get to my room. The whole thing is mysterious because they were floating in the entry way this morning. I had to laugh and think about the balloons feeling oh so tired (like me) finding their way to bed. They were going to rest but after they finished their day… Their feet, just barely hitting the bed, hovering above as to try to last just a little longer. That is exactly how I feel at about 5:00pm… just go to hold on a little longer. :)
A new theme (and yes, it is ok that I take both last week’s picture and this week’s picture in the same day)… SLEEP
They are dressed daily, granted naptime and have cuter clothes in their closet then I have in mine. These are the American Girl dolls that live here, in their own room, with their own bed. I have been amazed at the time and effort that my daughter puts into taking care of them. She adores the dolls and even remembers that when it’s cold out to dress them with a jacket, boots and a blanket. Since the Ikea doll bed only can sleep two dolls, she used an extra box, brought home from Costco to assist in carrying groceries, to create a cozy bed so that Kit will not miss her bedtime. Having these dolls here has brought out the inner child in me. When I am asked to help dress them or complete a new hair do, I oblige (and have to admit it, I enjoy it). : )
