Frosty The Gnome-Man

Monday 11-1802-13

Yesterday for church the kiddos and I wore black and white.  It was nice to finally see the kids in sweaters.  And I was so happy to finally wear my vintage 50's double knit dress.  And to put the icing on the cake I was able to take Bashful Brenda out of her box.  I like these shoes but Irregular Choice let me down on this pair.  Instead of putting real bows on the shoes for a 3-D effect the bows are stamped on.  But the gnomes are fab!  Creepy but I love them.  Fellowship was wonderful as ever and I was in the nursery with the two year old's and had a blast.  God is good.
