Yesterday, the 4th of July , was my mother's birthday. Here she is with 6 of her 8 grandkids (the 2 oldest visited over the weekend, but had to fly back to Florida for work, college classes, and grad school internships .) Notice that GREAT birthday crown Mom is wearing? It was designed and crafted by my 2 sweet as pie nieces, Maura and Erin (in the 2nd picture, Maura is wearing the white Carmel sweat shirt). Anyhow, yesterday, true to form, I was totally running behind schedule trying to get my food assignments together for the cookout, so I let the girls loose in the Very Pink Sewing Room to wrap my mother's birthday presents for me and to craft some kind of birthday hat . . . and that's what they came up with !!!! (the birthday crown says "4th of July Birthday Girl" )I totally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it !!! SUCH TALENT !!!!! I really must hire these two ! ! !
