I spent most of last week TRYING to get organized about what I was going to do and make for my Christmas sewing. I came right out and asked all the girls what they would like for me to make them this year for their families, and if Christmas jammies were still something everyone was interested in. I got some answers and at least have a direction to head in. I honestly can't believe it is already almost Sept. Time just whips by faster and faster, and I am usually sooo much further along in my Christmas sewing, and I am trying not to fret. It is what it is and I will do my best.
Other then that all I really have are some pretty cute back to school pics of some of the grands. I remember those days all too well from when I was raising my family. I used to just love the whole process. New shoes and backpacks and school supplies, and then the "first day of school" outfit, and some other new clothes as well. I try to help out a bit with some of the grands wardrobes and needs, as I also recall how hard that was to do sometimes. I took Jeffie (who at 12 is entering middle school this year in the 7th grade!) shopping and to lunch one day last week, and got him some shorts and t-shirts. It honestly feels like maybe a couple of years ago at the most that I was working in his KG class, and now here he is SOO grown up. He has REALLY REALLY changed recently. Even his voice! lol. I also took Cody out to lunch and to one last movie for the summer last week. I felt pretty good about getting in lots of one on one time this summer with MOST of my grandkids, as it's just not easy when there are soo many of them. I just sent a little cash home with my son James yesterday to help out with his San Diego brood, but I did make Capri a couple of new skirts last week too. Let me show you their pics....
