If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

Thank you! I must admit that I am not good at sewing. I had to rip the seams out of the first pair of shorts since I made the waist into the legs. However, as long as the waist is elastic I can make them. I don't do zippers. The skirts are the easiest. It is just two pieces of fabric that you sew together at the seams. Then you add elastic as for the waist and sew a seam at the bottom. I just made a long stitch for the ruffle and pulled the bottom thread to gather the material and I cheated by folding the fabric for the bottom seam of the ruffle. Then I just serged the bottom of the skirt and the ruffle together. It took less than 30 minutes to make a skirt with a ruffle and I have never made one before. I also only had the pattern for the straight skirt. I examined the ruffle on Hayley's Big Give Tinkerbell skirt to figure out the best way to add a ruffle.

Here is the last one for Hayley:

Thank you! I just purchased a sewing machine when Bre was little and a sewing manual. I have no training. I am making progress on packing. I am done sewing for Tyler and Hayley. I just need to make a few skirts for Bre. I will sew a little more today and then after I pick Bre up from school, I will gather everyone's outfits for the week! It is so close!

I have not packed yet, but outfits are laid out all over my bed. I needed Bre to come home to finish her last 3 skirts. My pattern only went to a 6x so I have had to extend it to a size 12 and before I cut the fabric, I wanted to hold the pattern up to her. The Handy Manny fabric is at Hancock Fabrics. They actually had two different Handy Manny fabrics and a Princess and the Frog fabric. All of the licensed character fabric is also 50% off this week! However, there were no princesses to be found anywhere! I have some Cinderella fabric and some purple princess fabric from when Bre was little, but they don't match with the shirt. Let me know if you can't find the Manny fabric and I will pick some up and send it to you!


Now, I am really off to finish packing before Aaron gets home! I have an hour!

Hey.....what a great job!! They look terrific. I can sew home goods (window treatments, tablecloths etc.) but not clothes. I was thinking of trying to do a fleece blanket or two (Disney themed of course) for whoever's riding in the stroller on those chilly mid-December nights at the park. You've inspired me to get movin'

I'm glad to hear you are no longer stressing about all the shenanigans with your Wish organization. It's getting close I'm excited for you.

You would be amazed at how easy shorts are to make. I started with PJ shorts and now any elastic shorts are simple. Now, I have discovered that skirts are even easier!

Thank you! Everyone is mostly well. We still have a few lingering runny noses and coughs. I am hoping that the Florida sunshine is the cure for this! I have finished pakcing everyone's clothes. I burned the pictures from my memory stick to a DVD. I just need to erase the memory stick now. Why is it so hard to hit the erase button? I know the pictures are on the DVD and online at Shutterfly so they are safe. It is just that tiny bit of doubt that is there right before I hit erase!

Here are Bre's 3 skirts:

Right now I am anxiously waiting for Tyler to come home. I called the school about 30 minutes ago. He is normally home at 12:10, but there was a problem with the bus and it broke down in the school lot. I was told that he his back in the classroom and being entertained. They better feed him lunch if they keep him much longer. The school said they did not call since they thought that all the kids that rode the bus go to daycare. I informed them that Tyler always comes home and since he can't talk someone needs to look out for him. Sorry for my rambling. I just want him home with me!

New update: Instead of packing I am now dealing with my son's well being! He arrived home at 1:10 pm and school let out at 11:50 am. The bus company told me he was in the school and he was not. He was strapped to his bus seat on the bus for an hour and 20 minutes while they waited on a new bus. I have been on the phone with the principal on and off all afternoon. The teachers are claiming they had no idea that the kids were on the bus that long and the bus company is saying that the teachers would not let the kids back in the school. I guarantee that when this is over, it will never happen again. Airlines can't keep you on a plane that long. Imagine a 4 year old that can't communicate and there were 5 of them on the bus. Then they told me that they did not call since they thought all of the kids on the bus went to daycare. Tyler has never gone to daycare. Now I am waiting for the principal to interview the bus driver and get back to me. She assures me that this will never happen again. I am just so mad right now. They are supposed to take care of my little guy when he is at school!

Yikes! Poor Tyler and the other children left on the bus. Isn't there some record at the school office that tells them which children goes home and which goes to day care? I don't blame you for being upset over this incident especially having you worry when Tyler didn't show up at the normal drop off time. Hope the fire you put under the Principal will straighten out the office and bus company that if this happens again, the outcome will be different. This is not a time for you to have this added stress!

I forgot to mentioned that you also did a great job on Breanna's skirts.

OMG!!! I can't even imagine how stressed you must be!!! That is horrible that they did that to Tyler (and all the other children!!), was he okay when he got home? So glad he made it home safely but I'm with you, it's their responsibility to make sure that that child is safe when not at home with you!! Thinking of you!!!!

First, hooray! For having the packing all done. Now..ugg! What were they thinking??? (Or what kind of people are being hired to be bus drivers?) That they would think it's okay to keep any kids, much less kids with special needs on a school bus for that long ?? I am mad for you right now, not that you need any help! That Principal better be doing some serious grovelling when she calls you back.

UGH! What a day for Tyler and you! Disney is just what you'll need. I am frustrated for you that they would handle the situation like that. I understand miscommunication, but that is ridiculous. Guaranteed some of those kids had to go the bathroom at least! Rough day, for sure.

GREAT job on those skirts!! I am going to try sewing some for my little one. (She's only 6 months though, thankfully. Lots of time to practice up!)

Hope the rest of your day went better!

Unbelieveable! I hope the principal gets to the bottom of this, quickly! It is so rediculous and unacceptable for a non verbal child to be restrained for that period of time. I believe a student can only beIf the principal doesn't give you a satisfactory answer, contact whichever administrator is in charge of students with special needs. And then the superintendent.

I'm glad that you have finished packing but very sorry you have to deal with this mess 3 days before your trip. I hope it is resolved soon.

Great job on the skirts by the way!
