St Patrick’s picture a few days late
Forgot to post this here! I mailed it out to a bunch of people but work continues to be a challenge so I had no time for extras. As a special bonus, one of my suppliers had a fire! Nobody was hurt and I think all my parts are ok but I need this like an extra hole in my head.
Anyway, this cuteness was captured over the past few weeks. I had too many cute outfits that I needed to spread them out. The ‘dyed in the wool’ gray outfit was a hand-me-down and fits perfect in the body and arms but they look like little shorts in the legs. I filled in the gap with the Irish Girl socks that used to be mine but I surged the foot part to fit Niamh and they are much cuter as baby knee socks then they were on me. The Irish dress is a gift from Josh and Karen – they got it specifically because of the Irish-ness of the name Niamh. They even went to the Irish boutique in St Paul to get it. To me (and Dad agrees) it looks just like a dress my grandfathers company would have made and reminds me alot of things we had when my sisters and I were little. I was the first really nice day when we took a walk to the park for some swinging, sliding, and pictures. The last ‘kiss me’ shirt is something I bought and Lars picked it for the actual St Patrick’s day outfit so we had an excuse to kiss her bunches.
Like I said yesterday, we didn’t exactly celebrate but we did discuss that if the US totally tanks that we are moving to Ireland. I’m sure the economy is just as bad or worse but it was fun to talk about.
