While in Maryland my mom and I spent a lot of time sewing. She puts sleeves (invented her own patterns) in the two dresses that I had bought to wear from my sister's wedding. Then I, with step by step guidance and help, sewed Abigail's dress for the wedding. It turned out very cute. I also taught my mom how to use Pinterest and she seemed to find some cute ideas for Christmas gifts this year. I also scanned in lots of pictures from her scrapbooks. Gems!
I got several blog posts posted and spent a lot of time finishing my 2010 blog book through blurb. It turned out very nicely. I also worked on Karolyn and DJ's guest book for the wedding, which I made in MyPublisher. I could not finish it while I was there, though, because they had not finished taking all of their photographs. It was a wonderful trip. I had such a good time, and again I felt sad that I do not live closer. However, I am SO SO glad that they live this close to us. We were excited to see them again at the wedding in Utah. I got much less done one my Utah trip. I was super productive Maryland.

|I love this photograph of my mom. She is so pretty.|

|Abby drew this picture of her dad on her church picture. I loved the glasses. I also was impressed with the pattern that she made on the outside of the shield. She loves patterns.|
