We moved into our current house about 17 years ago and I have NEVER sprayed our large yard for weeds. It was in pristine condition from the previous owners for a few years and then slowly the weeds came. We are out in the country so we didn't have to worry about neighbors looking at this grass.
I always had the excuse that I didn't want the kids stepping in the poison, or I didn't want it seeping down into the creek etc.
It has always been an embarrassment for me when I have to look at those ugly weeds and I kept saying each year - this is the year!! But that year would come and go and still ugly weeds....
Well - THIS IS THE YEAR!!! I could do just the front yard with the hose and sprayer. I bought some Ortho Weed-be-gone, got a little sprayer to attach to the hose - the weather was perfect this week - got everything all hooked up - ready to go - and a black van drives up the driveway.
Yes - grandkids.
I tried to shoo them away.
No avail.
There mom was going to work and Katie was going to babysit.
What do you think I did?
I sprayed anyways. Supposedly they will stay in the back yard which has to be sprayed with a big sprayer later.....
So anyways...back to the dolls I guess. My yard work is over for the season.

Aleshia - a bright face for a gloomy day

I made Aleshia IDEX 2010 this past January. I found a picture of just these legs in a magazine advertisement and kept it around for a few years. I was waiting to do "baby's first steps" for a while. Super fun! She is available through Melanie Friend, a retailer from Alabama.
Aleshia is a bright face for a gloomy day....

Dog day

Lots of nervous giggles from my baby when she got to hold one of my students doggie!! She would love a dog of her own but I told her when she GROWS UP she can have all the dogs that she wants!!! We'll see what she does about that.
She does know how to hold babies and sometimes I let her hold my dolls.
