Pics from Thursday

I should do a Day in Pictures. This is popular on one of my messageboards, and basically you just take pictures of the junk you do and then post them. It's so much fun to see what people do and who they interact with and where they go. I don't have quite a day in pictures for yesterday, but here are the highlights (aka when I was actually ambitious enough to get the camera).

Flowers from my mom and dad:

Awww, and there's my serger baby in the background! The picture doesn't really do the flowers justice, they're beautiful. I suspect we almost didn't get them though. I happened to be walking by the front door when I noticed the shadow of a person outside. Our doorbell doesn't work, and I guess people can't figure that out so they just stand out there and keep ringing. Don't worry, Eric fixed it last night, so ring away. Thanks again for the flowers!!

Here's yesterday's sewing endeavor, pants for Eli. This is an owl print waffle knit. I will never again buy waffle knit. It's so stretchy and annoying to sew. Eli calls them Olive Pants, and I think that's their only redeeming quality. I hope he wears them, at least to bed. I suppose if he doesn't, no big deal. Pants are a fast project, and the fabric was on 50% off clearance.

And probably the biggest surprise of yesterday:

See, this is what happens when I go up to take a bath. The kids get all crazy with the razors and poof! Dad's hair is gone!

Seriously though, I had no idea this was going on while I was soaking in the tub. It was one of those moments where I felt so overwhelmed and so much in love with this man. I cried. I'm tearing up right now.


  1. Sheri
    I have the perfect little purse for you to sew with all your scraps, my sister sews them for everyone, and we all love them. I will lend you one of ours to copy

    love you

  2. Oh honey. I'm sitting here crying (and Henry is looking at me like I've lost it) because of what your husband did.

    I've never met him (can you believe it?!) but I know he's a good man. Bless you, Eric.

  3. Sheri & Eric- I can't explain how wonderful as well as terrible your story is to read. Sheri, your honesty hits close to the heart. How sorry I am that I can't just pull that poison right out of you...for good. I thank God that He can.
