Christmas Day

Well, I made it through Christmas Day. I didn't have to work for too long. I was able to cook before and after, so I got all of my contribution to the dinner done. I've put up pictures of the dress I made for Tater Tot. I never did get a chance to try it on her...I just went by her measurments. Good thing it fit! The few days that I sewed on this dress it was in the 40's and 50's. Our average temps in Dec are ususally in the 60's....soooooo.....I made this corduroy dress to be worn with a white turtleneck shirt and tights. Well, who would have thought it would be near 80 degrees!!! Good grief! lol We had to switch things up a bit. Tater wore the dress with a t-shirt under it instead of the turtleneck. She had to keep the tights b/c we had no light weight little summer socks for her. lol oh well... She was proud of her dress, tho.
We had Christmas at my brother's house. Here he is on the front porch with Taylor. I love my brother...he's a cancer survivor. At 38 he was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. He had three rounds of chemo and finally went through a bone marrow transplant. Those were tough times, but he's doing really well, now.
Tater wants to go cruising on the scooter.


More posing...I love the way they're looking at each other. lol

The dress is adorable and the litte cutie pie wearing it is even more adorable! Your brother is an inspiration, I'm so glad he's doing well.

Precious dress and girly! Hooray for your brother! I met up with a friend after church this morning who is currently going thru her second battle with breast cancer. Please say a prayer for Liz, a wonderful wife and mother of 6 growing/grown children. Thanks.

I'm glad you didn't have to work the entire day. The little tatertot is a doll and the dress is so cute.
