Aunt Kim (a/k/a Bow) got her snuggles in too. Lucy was all dressed in red, white and blue for the holiday.
Dad is always so glad to see Mom. They have been married for 63 years and "dated" for 5 years before that - a real lifetime.
Proud mommy - Ashley - is so happy. Two wonderful little girls.
Later in the evening, Chad's family and Ashley's family came over to go to the fireworks. Holly has a beach just about 3 blocks from us and everyone walked down to watch the display. Abbey was SO excited! I stayed home with Ashley and Lucy, but we could see a lot of the "show" from our front porch. I loved being able to just hold and rock out little Lucy, it was one of the first times I didn't feel like I had to "share". It ended up being a very nice day.
I opened the shop yesterday and we had quite a bit of business. Deb (The Thread Gatherer) came up and another gal from Medina, Ohio that has a shop called Gatherings.
Things got a little exciting for a few minutes. There was a poor dog running lose on the main street of town, without a collar, and cars were all stopping so it could cross the street. It came right over and went into my shop and wanted to be near me. I was a little nervous, she was a Pit Bull, but she was very gentle. Still... A store owner from across the street came to get her and she was going to take her home, she said it was the second time they saw her running the streets.
Okay shoppers, be watching - we're going to be getting LOTS of new goodies in the shop very soon. In addition, the beginnings of our fall goodies will be coming out of hiding by the beginning of August. I've been sewing dolls and Terri has been working on all kinds of fall and Halloween - it will be wonderful! Wait until you see some of the unique things she has been making!
The shop is closed today, Dick went to work, and I'm going to try to cram in as much sewing as I can! Have a great day and we'll talk soon.
Until next time...
