This boy is so amazing. I never could have began to imagine how sweet a Baby our Baby would be. It is very strange, and I cannot understand it, that God would tell us ‘I love you’ by giving us him, only a few months after He told us the same thing by taking Mrs. Amber.

The lovely misses Mercy & Annie

The Sewing Room & Pictures August 21, 2008

Filed under: random — Ellie @ 12:58 pm

About a month ago, Momma & I sort of “re-did” the sewing room, plus cleaning it up. It had gotten to where we both knew which part of the pile to look for which pair of scissors in, which part of the pile to find the thread in, etc. This seems like a great system, right? Well, not really, especially now that Hannah is starting to sew in there more & more. We actually first started thinking we might need to organize one day about 7 or 8 months ago when Mrs. Amber was coming over to sew and we took the whole morning just to find a pattern we needed 😎

These dresses are some of what I’ve been sewing lately. Notice the adorable models?

It was Annie’s idea to hold the kittens in the pictures… however, we had to discontinue that plan when Mercy nearly strangled Cappy 🙂

But Annie knows how to take care of her own kittens, as she often reminds us. She also knows “how to make them obey. And when they need a spanken.” Thankfully, she hasen’t tested her disipline plan on the kittens. Yet.

Some of you might wonder if Mercy is always as sweet as she appears in the photos you see on this blog. My answer is

 Why, of course she is.


then again…

 …every one has their moments…
