If you couldn’t tell already, spring time is the time for Birthdays in my home. First comes Marcus’ then Thom’s followed by Molly’s and rounding out with Thomas’. This week was Thom’s turn. His birthday was this past Thursday. The kids love parties, so we use birthdays to really do it up.

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Thomas even learned how to play “Happy Birthday” on the piano and played along {which was quite appropriate, considering this week’s life photo theme just happened to be play} while we brought out the cake.

Which means that since Friday, it’s Molly’s birthday prep time. Which also means that I’ve been sewing. She wanted a doll this year for her present.
Planning out Molly's birthday doll. She wants her to have a matching knitted dress to wear. <3
Yes, I know. Creepy if you are not a doll maker. Lol.
Day 1; progress.
Doll progress!!
Body sewn. She needs clothes, but I'm not sure Molly will give her back to me to finish!
Which is also coincidentally perfect for this week’s portrait photo theme of anticipation.

11/52/Portrait - She's Almost Ready!She is so excited about her new doll that she hardly will put her down long enough for me to finish her, as evidenced by her having to hold her last night, sans her matching knitted dress. Oh yeah, remember that rainbow dress that I’m making for Molly? Her doll is getting one too.
Knitting away!

Better get back to it! T-minus 6 days until her birthday party!
