We had a wonderful, relaxing time up there just hanging out, playing games, going to a park, walks and attempting to swim in the local lake. But as you probably guest from the name (Cold Lake) the water was way to cold and I chickened out after getting waist deep, leaving my poor hubby completely drenched in freezing water without me. Yes I know, I'm a terrible wife.
One of the small highlights of the weekend was getting little Annabell to try on a dress that I had made for her a few weeks ago. I was mostly afraid it would be too small as I hadn't seen her in a while when had I decided to make the dress and so I wasn't sure of her size nore did I have a pattern to go by. I basically just guessed and crossed my fingers that it'd be the right fit.
To start with I had an old dress in my closet I had bought years ago and never once wore. It was way to low up top for my liking and so I never felt comfortable wearing it around. Finally I decided to give it up and thought that this time instead of giving it to a second hand store I'd cut it up and make a summer dress for the little one.
|This was the before dress|
|All done. Ruffles, bows, a pockets and love.|
|Aww, isn't she just the cutest!|
|Now that she can walk it was hard to get her to sit down and take a good picture so this was the best I could do for a back shot.|
