Yay for four day weeks...

Tomorrow is my Friday off & I think today is going to be a short day. It's Go Texan Day so everyone is all dressed up today and there are a few events going on - mostly at lunth, though. Then this afternoon we're leaving early for a happy hour to send off a coworker going to the Denver office. I don't know if I'll stay long b/c Michael may be playing ball after work today and if he is he won't be able to pick up Emma so I'll have to get her...also, if he is playing I'll probably just leave early anyway and get Emma & go to my parents' house for dinner.

Tomorrow I am going to their house for sure b/c mother is going to make Emma's Easter dress. I found the cutest pattern so we're going to go to the fabric store & buy the material & notions for it. It is so cute! I can't wait to see it finished. My parents have company from Egypt coming for nearly all of April, so we're trying to get it done ahead of time!

I've also asked mother to make her a cute little purse to match. I am so thankful for mother's sewing talent! I can barely sew on a button!! HA HA! I have asked for a small simple sewing machine, though - thought maybe I could start learning to make a few simple things - don't know when I'll have the time for it, but we'll see. Mother made every formal gown I ever wore except my wedding dress and I think that was b/c there was so much emotion tied up in it. Otherwise, she would have made that, too! I want to get some fabric that will match some shoes that Emma already has so we don't buy another pair or shoes. Dress shoes for little ones are so expensive. It's unbelievable - and she can't wear them long enough to justify the cost sometimes.
