cute baby alert
We had a wonderful baby shower for my grandniece at my sister Janna's house. She decorated with dresses and outfits my mother sewed for us. I believe Janna had a new dress every week until I was born and diverted a bit of my mother's time and attention!
Last year Dad told me that he knew we kids were frustrated and embarrassed when we frequently arrived at church late (dairy farmers are on barn time) but he said he always took a bit of pride as we walked in because, due to my mother's sewing efforts, we always looked really good.

The Baby-Tenda! And, three generations of toys. My mom made the quilt for Janna's first birthday with scraps from clothes my mother made for her.
Four generations! Henrietta, Janna, Brahm, and Meta.
