Thirdly, here's sweet teen the night of her Christmas Concert. (It was for school, so I'm sure they called it something else.) Out here the bands have not only marching uniforms but also concert attire. Black satin. It was about an inch short. I was told to lengthen it. Having spent about seven hours hemming it by hand last year (no machine stitching allowed), I said no thanks. This was taken a couple of days after her latest haircut--and doesn't represent what her hair usually looks like--I'm gently reminding her that she needs to learn how to style it with her flat iron. She's had a little more practice so her hair usually looks a bit different now--but I don't have a more recent photo.
Two more days of school and those looooonnnnnnggg commutes for me, and then I'll have a few days off. I'm dreaming quilting--although I really need to finish decorating the tree--something Sweet Teen won't do since she doesn't like Christmas. And I haven't quite decided how I'll finish it.
