I know I should wait for Halloween to reveal Macy's costume so she can be presented in all of her made-up glory but I am just too proud of myself to wait. I finally got my sewing machine back from the repair shop today so I finished off the costume. She will be able to wear the dress to church afterwords and the pinafore will be cute for dress up clothes. I am pretty pleased with my imperfect but first dress making attempt. Macy loves to spin around and show off how cute she is to anyone who will admire her. I had a very difficult time getting a decent picture because I couldn't get her to stop jumping and twirling.
And our other big news:
Yesterday we went to Target. Yes, Target. Not such a big deal to you southerners but I have very anxiously been awaiting the store's Alaska entrance since we moved here and I didn't believe the day would come. The Grand Opening is actually Sunday but we learned that they had opened a few days early so we went over last night and discovered that half of Anchorage knew of the same early opening secret. It was crowded and crazy but worth the fight- which is saying a lot because those who know me well know I hate fighting through crowds. We got some food, socks for the girls and a winter had for me. I was very pleased with our excursion and I can't wait to go back. I just wish it wasn't all of the way across town.
