I believe Halloween '88. My brother & I dressed up as Peter Pan & Tinkerbelle
And recently with my brother and I out of the house, she's started to get into canning.

Once the boy and I were engaged I knew there were projects I wanted to do, but would need my mom's help, the invitations being the big one. There were also items that my mom herself wanted to do. She didn't want to make the cake (although she did make my godmother's wedding pies for her wedding), but she did want to sew my veil.
Except my mom is currently in intensive care and has been for the past two weeks. She's battling a rare auto-immune design, dermatomyositis, that has infected her lungs. I was out in California last weekend and at that time, while my mom was suffering and needed oxygen she was at least awake and talking. Except at this point, all there is to do is wait and hope she gets better. It still doesn't feel real, and it's kind of crazy, but at this point we're all hoping and praying that my mom is able to get better and survive. So I'm not really sure how the end this post, except that any thoughts and prayers would of course be appreciated, and share one final picture from Christmas last year.
