Rosie looked lovely in her crimson "faux silk" ball gown. I used Past Patterns Ball Gown pattern.
I have lots of details to share about these, but I will do it in a later post.
Sometimes I think about how blogs tend to show only the joyful moments, the beautiful projects, etc. So I'm going to be honest here and say that these were the fun parts. The not-fun parts were that the other 4 kids didn't want to dance, Katie got a stomach ache, and we left early. 1 hour 20 minutes each way and lots of $$$ wasted. BUT I learned something and next year I will try again with only hubby, Rosie, and me. The re-enacting hobby is something I will still pursue, but I don't think it's going to be a family thing. That's OK.
Tomorrow is going to be Cookie Baking Day here. I will try to come back and share some pictures and recipes. We have big plans!
