I think this little doll came alive in those couple of weeks. Being a perfectionist with my sewing, there are a lot of little details about her that I don't especially like, but honestly, that's what makes her! She's like a little kid that just seemed to develop her own personality as each new part came together. Her wild hair, her uneven eyes, the stain on her back that just wouldn't come out.......they all make her a little more real.
Anyways, here she is, the night she was finished..........
And of course a girl with her doll........
She finally got a little dress and some underwear last week, but I'll have to post pictures of that later. Her dress was finished just in time for Emberly's first day of show-and-tell, and let me tell you, it makes a mama proud when her Kindergartener wants to take her special mama-made doll to show her class! And just in case you're wondering, I'm not sure what her name is. It's changed a number of times, last I heard it was Sara. But before that we had Laura, Laura-Lily, Elizabeth, Emily, Emily-Elizabeth, and Pocahontas. So you'll have to ask Ember yourself. :)

These carrots are from a local Hutterite colony, and I pickled them using D's grandmother's recipe. We have no idea if they're tastey, we have to wait a few more weeks until they're ready, but they sure look pretty in my pantry!
These strawberries we picked ourselves at the farm of one of my students. They're the most delicious strawberries in the world! Even G and E joined in the picking, well, G mostly taste tested for us in the field!
And here's my little kitchen helper, he's usually attached to my leg!

Where have the years gone? I had one excited little girl here this morning, she was up at about 6am, got dressed, and then went back to bed. When I woke her up at 7:30 she jumped out of bed fully dressed and said, "Don't forget Mom, you said you'd make me hot chocolate with marshmallows!"
Her teacher is Miss Pati and I think it's going to be an awesome year! Join us for the fun and excitement as I attempt to blog a little more regularly!
