Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17

Merry Christmas!

Still waiting on the baby; as of now she's scheduled for Caesarian delivery Monday morning. So Monday I will officially be a Grandma. And that's cool.

Just want to wish all happy holidays, whatever you celebrate, and a happy, healthy new year. Oh, and meet my newest elves. We had two hanging around the house while I was growing up and my Grandmother would tell us their Portuguese names which I can't spell to save my life. I still have one; not sure what happened to the other. But I told a dear friend about them last year and a few months later she presented me with these guys. We do so love thrift stores! So here are the new elf twins; they reside by the television and I giggle and whisper 'Hi, Gammie!" everytime I dust them. But really--- don't you think the one on the left looks like Helen Thomas?

From backstage to the nursery...

The Christmas rush is on! I had a great time with "The Doctor in Spite of Himself" and "A Christmas Story"... both were relatively stress-free productions and I loved the wackiness of "Doctor"! I wish he had allowed me to go all-out with the make up too but it's alright. Now my busy sewing is all about---- diapers! I'll have a grandchild by Christmas and his mama wants to 'go green'. Actually, it's more about 'going cheap' since disposables cost so much. These cloth diapers ain't our mama's cloth diapers. They've gone high tech with laminated fabrics and natural bamboo liners. And they're super cute! I'm shooting for about 20 in size newborn to get them started and they're coming along pretty well. Right now the hard part is waiting for the baby!
