Sean is dunking the Principal. He was in the tunk before her, so he is soaked. It may be Arizona but it was chilly that night and being soaking wet made the water seem really nice.
Sean threw 12 pitches and landed 2.... hahaha.. don't tell his softball team. :)
Mrs. Nance is a great sport. She was egging him on trying to distract Sean.
There was a large crowd watching, enjoying, laughing.

So what do you think??
My latest creation, 30x7, We may not have it all together but together we have it all.
Thanks to Jana, who gave me the statement.
This rings true for a lot of us.
Once again I am making pieces for gifts for the Holidays. I am planning on having a sale on Black Friday from 11-3. I will have similar pieces, clocks, family plaques, etc.
As every year this is how I earn my Holiday spending money. If you know anyone who may be interested send them a copy of this picture.

So, why make it? I could easily go to JCPenny and by one or borrow one from family. The problem with that is that I really wanted to make it. I felt and feel so strongly that it is just one of those strong convictions that move us and push us beyond our comfort zone. This was definately it for me. I have taught myself how to use many tools and to some using power tools may be intimidating but to me I am more nervouse about the sewing needle blazing through my finger than I am of my table saw spit a chunk of wood at me, or the whirl of the mider saw. At the same time when I press the foot pedal I get an adrenaline rush, like I am flooring it in the Z3. How funny is that?!
I was afraid of making a mistake on her blessing dress. It wasn't my dres. It was Katies'. My girlfriend Jana came to the rescue in true mom fasion. Jana has made oddles of blessing dresses. She is extremely GREAT! at making them. She said she would coach me and not do it for me which was exactly what I wanted. So on Saturday I had my confidence in check Jana at my house and I was ready to roll. I took my sweet time making sure I was happy with each step I was doing. It turned out beautiful. I was exhausted by the end and poor Jana was too. She was running on 4 hours of sleep plus 8 hours of making a blessing dress. This was a prime example of true friendship.
The next mornng Church was at 8am she was there with her 6 kids & hubby Brandon supporting us. After the blessing she brought her family over to visit and share in this special day.
After we were home Sean & I laughed over all of us matching. It was not preconcieved. It takes so much work to get everyone ready and then on top of that we matched! I wish this could happen on family picture days. So this could possibly be our Holiday family photo, just consider this your sneak peak. LOL.
