It's Her Birthday

The "baby" of our 10 grandchildren turned 4 a few days ago. We celebrated her birthday Sunday.
How can it be??
 
A few weeks ago, I made 3 little dresses for my friend, Suzanne @ my favorite quilt store to take to a quilt show. When Emmy saw me making them, she looked up at me with those big blue eyes and said "I know, those are for the other little girl" It just broke my heart that she thought I had time to make something for another little girl and not her.
 
So, I started thinking about what I could make her for her birthday. I usually make dresses, but decided  to do this cute top and pants.
 
The top is a Pam Kitty Picnic fabric with kitties on it. I knew she would love it.
 
I found some Minnie Mouse sunglasses and flip flops at Target to complete her outfit.
The minute she put those sunglasses and shoes on the "attitude" came on.
She started prancing around like a model on the runway.
Her big sister Drew helped me get some pictures of that attitude.

She had no trouble giving us just what we wanted.
 
Notice the hand on the hip.
 
Oh how we love our Emmy Lou!!
 
 
I have been the world's worst blogger lately.  So many ideas for posts run through my head, but time gets away and  another day...no post.
 
We are in Lake Tahoe with our good friends Dave and Gail Olds for a few days. I guess being in a hotel with no housework, laundry or sewing machine for an excuse, I had time for a little blog chatter.
We are driving around the lake tomorrow. It is clear and sunny and still some snow on the ground, so maybe I'll get some pictures for another post and maybe it won't take me another 2 months to post it.
Maybe.
 
 
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!

Enjoy your time in Lake Tahoe. I haven't been there for years, but I do remember that it was beautiful. So is your granddaughter. I can't believe she's 4. Weren't you just blogging about her birth? Time flies :)
Hope you're well my friend.
Blessings,
Marcia
