|Observing Mason's 6th Baptismal birthday after church this past Sunday.|
Mason and his Mommy returned home and little Miss Lucy Ann (and her babies) stayed for a few days with Nana and Pawpaw. On Monday we made doll quilts together. Lucy Ann chose all the squares from my 2.5" bin and laid them out exactly the way she wanted them to be arranged. Nana stitched and she was my assistant, bringing me the pieces in the correct order! After we finished the first one I had a feeling that she would lose interest... but boy, was I ever mistaken! Oh, no; she was determined and hung in there. She chose the tying thread (perle cotton) colors and helped with the tying. She loved every bit of the process.

|Lucy Ann took her time shopping, she was interested|
every little item and considered how she might use it.

After careful deliberation, final selections were made and it was, all too soon, time to check out and get some lunch. Lucy Ann had a T-shirt specially made for Sarah (doll in her arms), it is contained in the teeny-tiny shopping bag she's holding. Baby Barbara is in her carrier on the counter. Both dolls have new outfits and Lucy Ann provided her grandparents with some wonderful, happy memories and such a fun time spent together; I hope she remembers these last few days exactly the same way. Tonight she'll be sleeping in her own little bed at home again, we kissed her goodbye only a few hours ago... I miss her already, our house is altogether too quiet.
Life is Good!
