The Mother's Dresses

Hey all! This is Shineylocks reporting for Mommy1. As you all know, Lost in Space and Lost in a Dream will soon be wed. (Only eleven more days, wow!) Mommy 1, being the mother of the groom, was faced with the difficult task of finding something to wear to the wedding. This may sound easy, but believe me - it's not! She searched high and low for a suitable dress, but there seemed no hope for this poor M.O.G. Finally, when all hope seemed lost, and she was contemplating wearing Carhartts, she found the dress. This dress seemed a Godsend, not being electric green or made of tin foil. Needless to say she ordered the dress, and I am proud to announce that our dear Mommy 1 will not have to attend her first born son's big day clad in a beach towel. Here is the dress.

Thank You...Shineylocks

So...
I already posted about my Dress...
Now that I have a new camera...
here are some pictures:

Three Little Baskets.....

What  do   you do with  Three Baskets?
You have Three Little Flower Girls at your Wedding.
Let me tell you the story of the Three Little Baskets...
Well...
Once Upon a time
there was Three Little Baskets...
Somewhere...
So the Mother of the Bride
(having nothing else to do with her time)
Set out to find those Three Little Baskets.
She looked high and low...
at Thrift Stores and New Stores.
Gathering the Baskets did she...
Good thing that she actually likes Baskets...
cause now she has a plenty...liking everyone she bought.
But none were matching...
so still looking for the perfect basket...
she came upon Three Little White Baskets.
They were brand new...
but still needed some "love".
So...she took those little baskets and painted them 
and gave them a nice shine.
Now they are happy little baskets,
waiting to walk down the aisle
with those Three Little Girls
on September 4.

Much Love to All,
Mommy 2

Just a Note...

Just wanted to let you know...
that we made it home safe and sound
from our trip.
Tired and Glad to be home for while.
I moved the Whats Happening up...
toward the top on the right hand side.
That way you can see the countdown to the Wedding there.
Though I will probably... give the countdown...
everytime that I write.
8-)
Anyway....
Love to travel 
(especially on a plane...cause it usually quicker)
But...
I LOVE to be home...
and sleep in my own bed.
Take care.
Love to All,
Mommy 2

Wedding  countdown  is....31 days until the BIG day!
I am at my oldest daughters house....

with my 2 youngest children...
we brought 4 young people from our church to go to camp for a week.
We  drove down on Saturday...
in my mini van that seats 7...
we were packed in there...
siblings bickering in the back seat of the van.
Yes...it was quite the ride here...
up a mountain or 2...
winding   roads...
Running over a rock with my van on a mountain road.
Making it to my daughters house...fretting about the van.
Got the van "looked at"...
it had a loose dripping transmission gasket...
got it tightened no more drips.Yea! 
It was a BIG Praise God that that was all that was wrong with it!
I am enjoying my "vacation".
I finally found a dress to wear to the wedding yesterday...Whew!
I was out shopping by myself when I found it....big WOW!
It is perfect...I felt "good" when I put it on.
Its navy blue,made with light weight shimmery material.
Now to find some shoes...
I wish I could post some pictures of it...
but I haven't gotten a new camera yet.
Take care.
Much Love to All,
Mommy 2
