Has it really been 20 days since I last posted on here? I certainly doesn't seem like it at all!
As some of you already know, I went out to MO to see my DH's grandmother. We found out we "had" to go in the middle of March when my MIL told us that she didn't think grandma would make it to summer. So we rushed around and spent waaayyy more money then we had to for this quickie trip. Come to find out, grandma has a good 20 years left on her
All that running around, worry, and money wasted! Worst part is that we were only able to spend 3 days with her over spring break but if we waited till summer (when we originally planned to go) we would have had an entire week. Thanks mom!
I did get the girls dresses done in time, but forgot to take pictures. Here are a couple with Princess's dress almost done. The ribbon around her neck became a belt. Doesn't she look soooo happy in the first pic?
We so lots of things along the way, but the girls favorite was this:
Taken in KY at one of the rest stops. Such a sweet family to let the girls take a picture!
While in MO we took a run over to Merrimac Caverns
The girls had fun, well one of them did. Bossy wasn't too sure about how dark it was. The tour guide didn't turn on any lights until absolutely, positively necessary. I don't think she was all that scared though, there were a couple of times we were given the option to go back and she didn't take them up on it!
Anyway, the big claim for Merrimac is that it used to be a hideout for Jessie James. Cool huh? Have I told y'all yet that my great-grandmother met him once and swapped a horse for him? She wrote about it in her journal, positively gushing over this handsome and charming man
Here's some pics. No, the log cabin is not the hideout, it is just some old moon shiner's hut that washed down the river. You know, the people of MO are a little strange. They preserve a moon shiners hut inside a cavern and are proud that they have the only Foucault Pendulum
that doesn't work.

The dresses look great, I'm still learning how to sew yet I haven't attempted dresses yet. Gimme time. I love the second pose of Princesses dress.
The dresses are amazing! true princess power there.
About the grandma...your mom owes you BIG TIME! book her now to come down and babysit the girls while you go to MDS&W!!
Ahh I can see it now (her b-day is 5/6)
"Happy Birthday. Your present is you get to spend the entire day with the girls! Oh and by the way, DH is working and I'm going to MDS&W! Have fun!" Think it will work?
Hey Eileen, are you going to MS&W? Holler if you need a ride or a place to stay -- I have a suite at Homewood Suites in Columbia and my time is fairly flexible - not sure yet when I'm driving up or coming back.
Also -- do you know who is the owner of the SnB Yahoo Group? Suddenly I'm "banned" and I'm hoping that's a mistake.
