Sunday in the South

Remember THESE sweet fabrics???Noonie made them into something BEAUTIFUL for the little pumpkin!!! Isn't this dress so sweet?I love how she turned one of my vintage tea towels into a dainty little apron.The owners of the fabric boutique where I bought the fabrics asked Grace to be in a style show today modeling the sweet dress my mom made her. So sad that Noonie couldn't be here to see the little pumpkin but she's away having a fabulous anniversary weekend with Papa J - Happy 12th Anniversary Mom & AJ!!!I have to tell you, I am sooooo NOT the pageant mom. I can talk to audiences of 300, 400, 500 about child abuse - my professional field - and never break a sweat but give me a fashion show for wee ones and I get sooo nervous. I wasn't sure if Grace would make it on the stage or shy away, but she did GREAT! Feeling a bit shy... Tiniest little smile...Working it like a pro... And finally super goofy with the bunny!She even helped draw for door prizes! Mrs. Shirley & Mrs. Kim were so sweet to give each girl a little treat for being such great little models. Grace loved her Princess dry erase board. Thank you Mrs. Shirley & Mrs. Kim! There were so many cute outfits but this one was my favorite - love the fabrics!!My mother-in-law, Grace's Mimi, my dear friend Segi, and her sweet mom Mrs. Wanda came to see Grace model in Sunday in the South, A Spring Style Show. Thank you Segi & Mrs. Wanda for the sweet git - what a fun surprise!I loved seeing all those little girls in sweet outfits made by their loved ones and I'm SO PROUD of you Grace for trying something new!! You did GREAT!!!THANK YOU NOONIE for making Grace's dress!! I LOVE it and will treasure it forever. Can't wait to see my own granddaughter wearing it one day. And YES, we got it all on video just for you! :)

I wish I could have been there to see Grace model the dress which I made for her with so much love!...but it is impossible to be physically present in two places at the same time. The pictures are priceless! She looks precious! I can't wait to see the video.
Noonie is very proud of you,Grace.
I think that your "modeling" today was the highlight of your Mommy's birthday, which is today, the first day of spring. Happy Birthday my beautiful daughter! May God always bless and guide you.
All my love,
Mom/Noonie

Hi again Jessica. I was thinking right along the same lines as you with the dump truck for Noah. I was wanting to put eggs inside the truck, and rolling off!!!
Have a great rest of the week!

How fun! I know that store. My mother in law shops there all the time for smocking fabrics! I've always wanted to see their style show. I am so glad to get a peak. Grace looks adorable as always!
