Tuesday evening I spent watching Kendal run around the little soccer field. She is either in the scrap of things with all the kids and the ball, or on the opposite side of the field in la la land. Next year will be better I tell myself.
I spent Wednesday evening at the church teaching another ward's Young Women how to sew up a cute little bag. I think they turned out darling. The 12 year olds thought they did too!
Thursday evening I spent the night frolicking around in my old prom dress - hoop skirt and all.
I have been thinking for a few weeks that I should really watch the movie Gone with the Wind. I have never seen it before and I figured it was about time. Then I went to a lady's house to deliver something and I got a tour of all her Gone with the Wind doll and book collections. That did if for me, I needed to see the movie. So I got it at the library and told my friend Amanda that I was going to watch it. Well, we planned a girls night at the movies at Jen's house and the rest is history.
Amanda and I dressed up in our hoop skirts and went to Jen's house last night. Amanda's family is involved in Civil War reenactments, so she has some amazing clothing to wear, hoop skirts and all. She wore one of her Civil War dresses and I donned my prom dress from 1992.
Amanda came to my house to pick me up last night and my girls could not get over mom being a princess. Kendal kept saying "I want that princess dress mom." Kelsey was just giddy with all her girliness over me and the big dress. Kendal kept climbing under my hoop and so Matt took a picture of the girls under my dress before we made it to the movie night.
I have spent Friday evening with my entire family in bed and asleep by 9:15 while I play on the computer. I am going to go sew in a minute. I am making the cutest aprons for Enrichment. What a sweet week. Dang, tomorrow brings a 9:00 am soccer game!
