They worked really hard for several hours, but they did not have enough time to finish. They made plans to get together the next Saturday (yesterday) to finish. Meanwhile, Grandma realized that the pattern was wrong. She bought more material and they got together yesterday to start over. Several hours later the purse was finished. What was intended to be a simple first project ended up being pretty advanced...the purse was lined, with curves, finished corners, and finished off with a pretty honeycomb stitch. Kayla is really proud of what she made, and she should be. They did a great job. Here is the finished purse. It is a horrible picture, but the only one I have right now. It is super cute!
Saturday night I met up with two friends for a night out. We realized that Debbie had a birthday coming up, so we used that as an excuse to celebrate. This is Debbie after they sang Happy Birthday to her at dinner.
This is Debbie, me, and Robyn. We had a great night out!
Kayla has really been enjoying her I-pod Touch that she got for Christmas. She found a friend in her class that she could test out Facetime with. Facetime is like video chatting. She came home from school all excited on Tuesday because Andrew was going to call her on it. Well, by the time he did she was already at dance. She got home at 9:15 that night. I told her it was too late to call him back. The next thing I hear is her talking on Facetime to Andrew's mother. She then got to give me her I-pod for the week. She got it back on Friday night. She has been on Facetime with Andrew probably a hundred times over the weekend. I was so happy when Caleb, her cousin, got set up on Facetime. I don't have to listen so closely to those conversations! It is so strange listening to her talk to boys. This is totally innocent. He is just one of the only people she knows with Facetime, but it is a sign on the times to come. I can't imagine!!!!
