Easter dresses

My granddaughters received their Easter dresses and they love them. And they fit. I was hoping to get some pictures of the girls twirling around in their dresses but since I wasn't there to enjoy their fun and take my own pictures these will have to do.

And what a handsome grandson.

It's a shame I live so far away - I'm missing so much






"I've been a hard worker all my life, but 'most all my work has been the kind that 'perishes with the usin',' as the Bible says. That's the discouragin' thing about a woman's work. If a woman was to see all the dishes that she had to wash before she died piled up before her in one pile, she'd lie down and die right then and there. I've always had the name o' bein' a good housekeeper, but when I'm dead and gone there ain't anybody goin' to think o' the floors I've swept, and the tables I've scrubbed, and the old clothes I've patched, and the stockin's I've darned, but when one of my grandchildren or great-grandchildren sees one o' these quilts, they'll think about Aunt Jane, and, wherever I am then, I'll know I ain't forgotten."
quote from AUNT JANE OF KENTUCKY by Eliza Calvert Hall

Cute kids and dresses. Boy isn't that the truth about the dishes. All I did this weekend was fix food and wash dishes, my dish washer broke at thanksgiving and the handy man has yet to fix it.
