Hubby and my dad are brewing beer in the kitchen (oy, that's a messy project!), and this afternoon my mom and I started working on making what was once a wee baptismal gown into an Eliza-sized baptismal gown so she can wear it at her baptism in a couple of weeks (more on that later!). It involves cutting my baptismal gown (that my mama made for me when I was baptized 29 years ago!) up the back so we'll be able to get it on her (think hospital-gown-style):
And, with awesome (NOT) timing, my teeny-tiny but very carefully packed "hall" closet (that's located, strangely, in my dining room since our house doesn't have any halls) decided to totally crash down upon itself this week, which I discovered when I went to get the vacuum out of it, but then decided I didn't want to deal with it so I just shoved the door shut like someone in a sitcom - seriously, it was just like that joke where someone opens a closet door and a mountain of stuff piles out of it on top of the person.
All of THAT stuff (above), fits (quite neatly, I might add!) into this tiny space:
(and what you can see is the entire closet - you'd think that "they" would have made the closet go the length of that (albeit short) wall to the right, but no. It's just about as wide as the little door and not even as deep as a standard hanger!!! But, I make it work.
And finally, Eliza is a busy busy girl, just like any other day. She had a good time playing in her crib this morning, it was so cute. She was playing a game of peek-a-boo with me: she would peek her head down below the rails, and the pop it back up and laugh. It was so cute! She is so smart :o)
And, she did some of this, too:
