Slow Progress In the Midst of Chaos and Sickness Which Drives the Mommy Mad

I finally finished Sarah's baby book. It's only her first year but I plan to add other things to it, like teeth and first hair cut. I actually finished a while ago but Lily got the chicken pox, then Rachel got...something that gave her a 103 degree fever, which she gave to Ella, which she gave to Sarah and now Lily has it, of course. I plan to begin on Rachel's book today. I am anxious to get these done because there is a lot of sewing to do.
Have you guys seen that Ravenhill finally has her Etsy shop open? Check out these babushka dolls; I'd love to get one.

Sarah's book looks great! I am so proud of you for sticking to getting it done! She will really love that later in life.

That looks great, Jo. I am SO FAR behind in my books that it is very distressing. I just wish I had a good place to leave it all set up, you know?
I ordered a babushka doll from Ravenhill!! :-D I would love several.. maybe I will order another some time! Thanks for posting about it here!

did you really? oh they're so pretty. i had wanted to get one but i spent my "birthday money" on three cookbooks. :(

the only reason this scrapbooking is getting done is because i can leave it set up. when i put my sewing machine back scrapbooking will go by the wayside again. that is until i have eight kids and am four kids behind...

lol... eight eh?

Well, I am proud of you girl for getting so much done. I have thought about it lately that I should at least have Savannah's half way done by the time #2 pictures start rolling in but haven't decided to do much about it yet.

Tina said...

Meagan you sound like me... before every kid is born I swear I will have the others all caught up, but I never actually do anything!
This time my excuse was how fat I got! My gosh I have NEVER been so large and uncomfortable in my life.. no WAY was I going to haunch over a scrapbook and put anything together!

ha ha ha, you guys are so funny. i ordered 141 more pictures to scrap and guess what half of them were? LILY'S PICTURES! up to five months. i'll be really happy with myself if i can get all that done. maybe now that everyone is done being sick...
