Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Oh my what a blessing you all have been!! Thank you so much to each and every one of you who has sponsored a doll!!!
I did not anticipate such a wonderful response! In fact, you all tripled the number I had orginally estimated so it was back to Hobby Lobby this afternoon to purchase more fabric and stuffing!
Now I'm just trying to figure out how to fit them all in my suitcase. :) I will most definitely be packing all of my personal things in my carry-on so my suitcase will be completely filled with DOLLS!
This is just some of what I've been working on the past few days.
Now the pressure is on to get some great pics of some very excited little girls. I have still been a little nervous about the trip, but thanks to all of your sweet comments and emails, and the fact that I will have my own personal toy store to take with me, I'm really really excited to be going.
Tiny little doll arms and legs are scattered all over the house. I have recruited Will and Anna Cate to help me too. Will turns the legs right side out while Anna Cate stuffs them. And for those of you who know me and my neurotic t.v. will turn your brain to mush so we will not watch it in this house rule (and by we I mean the girls), well it has totally flown out of the window this week. The girls and I have watched more episodes of Madeline while stuffing doll arms and legs that I care to admit. In fact, I can hear Caroline back in her bed right now playing (as she is suppose to be going to sleep) saying "Pepito, Pepito! It is me, Madeline!" in her best french accent. ;)
We are all very excited and thankful for all of your encouragement, prayers, and the opportunity to take all of these dollies down to Nicaragua in a few weeks. Now I need to get off the computer and back to the sewing machine if I'm going to have them all done in time.
I think this is where I will be all weekend!
