I toles my momma we MUST blog today to say hello to our friends and let them know we are trying hard to get back to blogville, we miss all of you very much.  On Saturday we received pictures and a card with a handwritten note from the pug ranch kids momma.  Our momma got tears in her eyes, cos it made her heart remember JUST why we miss you all so much.  Thank you Linda.

Mom snapped this first things this morning, she says, "get in your beds, momma has to go to work.." and away we fly.  Of course Dad is home, so we can escape as soon as his feet hit the floor.

Wednesday momma is making the trip to the University to finally take little macey and her momma to the ped cardio guy.  It has been a long wait, five weeks this Friday.  Macey's little foot and calf are still swollen very very big....she has to wear flip flops all the time, and even those are tight on her foot.  She has had a ultrasound done to just make sure there was no blood clots, blood work and today an xray to make sure there is no hidden fracture.  (Mom wonders WHY they did not do that on day one!!)  We will let you know as soon as we are back on Thursday HOPEFULLY with answers.

Mom has taken up sewing....she says its more constructive than drinking (whatever that means) so we are gonna show you a few of her projects.....we try to stay out of her way cos she makes lots of mistakes, and we also sometimes step on the foot pedal so that is basically a disaster waiting to happen.

Here is a skirt she started for the 6 year old but it is to small cos Mom apparently cannot measure so it will be given to little piper instead.  Mom saw these funky little skirts on zulily and thought maybe she could recreate

Then she made curtains for the family room...we practically live in there, and mom likes a lot of light, dad not so much.....but he keeps quiet about it....

Here is a little owl mom made on a skirt for the 6 year old. She had to make the skirt over cos she measured Macey's waist but forgot girls have hips....To SMALL.....she had to start over.  She thought a straight brown skirt would look cute with her cowboy boots....hope it fits when she tries it on!

THEN mom was snooping around on pinterest and saw this site called Junker Jane's....and she laughed and laughed at these crazy little dolls she makes....they are not for everyone, and when mom showed the grandgirls pictures of them they said EWWWWWWWWW......Mom thought they said HOW PRETTY and decided to try her hand at her own creations...Monster Me's.......

This is Dixie.   She worked on her yesterday.  Dixie is the name of her sister.  She said has to add her funky little arms and legs yet and stuff her AND make a small doll to go with her.  Mom has to stain the material also.  See her memory with her sister (15 months apart) is that mom had this bride doll and she could only play with her when Dixie was asleep, well one day she left the doll out and Dixie ripped out her earrings, and ripped off her head.  That was the end of the bride doll.  So mom is going to make a little monster bride doll to go in Dixie's hand, and then give it to her sister for Christmas.  Her sister will love it!! (maybe)

So Mom is going to try to make them for each of her girls, and granddaughters for Christmas, with a memory.  Big

Thank you for being so patient with us not blogging.  We do think of each of you everyday, and we will be back soon.  The election is over in a few weeks, and things will quiet down at work, for the next two weeks mom will be hand-addressing over 3000 letters, ....I wonder if she will even be able to come home and sleep?????

Hugs....Stella Rose, Margaret Mae and of course Angus Mac
