Homemade Dresses!


I had to post these pictures because my mom made this adorable dress and jacket for Hannah. There is a reason why this is so important to me. I hope this doesn't embarrass you mom, but I'm going to talk a little bit about you. In 2005, my mom started having health problems, which she later found out to be related with her thyroid. She struggled with anxiety attacks, infections, back and knee problems and more. I know that those years were very hard for her, and I wish that I could have been there for her. After more than two years of these health problems and many prayers and blessings, she is finally back to her normal spunky, adorable self, and I am so grateful for that. Thank you for the adorable outfits that you have made for Hannah.....I'm so glad that Heavenly Father answered our prayers and healed you.

Very adorable! I wish i had that talent of sewing and making clothes. That is one thing that I want to learn how to do well. Perfect easter dress. Nice job Donna!

Okay, so when scott's done with school, you have to promise me you'll move back!! Rachel and I were just talking about that this morning while we were running...how much fun it would be if you were here and we all hung out, and ran every morning. But of course, we all have different reasons as to why Heavenly Father has us where we are. I am so happy for you guys that Scott is doing so well at BYU...that will be a great blessing to your family.
Just know that you always have friends back home who love and miss you, and wish you were here!!!
P.S. Hannah is adorable. LOVE the dress! Is it her easter dress??
P.S.S. So grateful Donna has pulled through. What an awesome blessing to be able to make it through, and I am sure you are all much stronger because of it!

Well that was certainly unexpected. Thank you everyone for your prayers for the past three years. yes, my mind is back, I am still working on the body. But its great to feel like me again.
As for the dress, well I guess Hannah is tinier than I thought. She's adorable no matter what but it does look big on her. The hem looks crooked, hopefully its the way she is standing. (I am my own worst critic) Can't wait to see all of you in one month!!

Ahhh- she looks so cute! Great job mom! I too am glad to have mom back. It was very sad to see her go through all of that.
