We arrived late and still hadn't had dinner...so we headed to Branson and ate at Dick Clark's....loved seeing the 80's American Bandstand and reliving it w/ these girls. When we got back to our room, we had warm cookies and fresh milk from college dairy waiting on us.
The WELCOME is written in CHOCOLATE....Sydni, my chocolate freak...figured it out and ATE IT.

In the process of refining metals, the raw metal is heated with fire until it melts. The impurities separate from it and rise to the surface. They are skimmed off, leaving the pure metal. Without this heating and melting, there could be no purifying. As the impurities are skimmed off the top, the reflection of the worker appears in the clear, pure surface. As we are purified by God, His reflection in our life will become more and more clear to those around us.
Carly, remember you are being refined...those impurities are being skimmed off. I hope November 16, 2009 stays in your heart as a new lease on life. May God continue to keep His grip on you even when you feel like wriggling right out...lol.
I LOVE YOU!!

Now, on to the parade of aprons.
In September, I taught an apron making class.
Should I mention that I've never even made an apron before?
Well, guess what? I still managed to have people make some great aprons.
Not to mention, I had several sewers in the class that were a true blessing!
Below is Regan...no, she didn't make the apron...no, she wasn't in the class...
I just thought she looked so cute in the apron.
This is Christy. She DID make this apron in the class.
It is made from two tea towels.
Christy DOES sew.
This is Leah and Deb.
Leah cheated and bought an apron that someone from the church made....
someone that didn't come to our apron class...I think
whoever made it, needs to teach the class next time.
Deb is wearing the apron I made. My very first apron.
She won it at my Pampered Chef party.
I need to make her a smaller version...this one swallows her!!
This is Julie.
Julie took the class.
Julie made her apron.
Julie just had a baby.
Julie is probably talking on the phone
to make sure baby is ok.
Julie has a family that sews, but Julie is learning.
Julie has her own blog.
