Thank you, thank you very much...

Most of you who know me, know that I (Kelly) am an Elvis fan. I'm not the crazy, addicted kind. I really only have a few of his CDs, don't care for any of his movies (who does?), but I do have some Elvis memorbilia that I've collected and that others have given me over the years. I still love his music and love to see any movies about his life (not the ones he acted in). So, my dear friend Marianne made this adorable shirt for Micah!! She surprised me with it when some of my dear friends from seminary days and I met up in Boston back in September. Isn't it precious!! I've had so many people comment about it and wonder if they could get one too. Then to their disappointment, I have to tell them my friend MADE it. Then, they look at me in utter disbelief as if they can't believe anyone actually hand sews clothing anymore! So, I asked her to please make my some PJ bottoms from the same material and she did!

It has been too long since I posted, I know. I started a part-time job a few weeks ago at The Container Store and it has taken up a lot of my time. I only work two evenings a week and Saturdays, which is enough. I had lots of crazy training times before I settled into a regular schedule and even one over night shift to do. That was only a one time thing, setting up for the "Gift Wrap Wonderland." If you live near one of the stores, you should see it. It's every kind of paper, bow, bag, tag, ribbon, trinket, sticker, etc you can imagine to possibly wrap a gift and so much more. I like the job, but don't plan to do it forever. In fact, I was hired as seasonal, which is now through February and then they evaluate if they still need me, if I still want to work, etc. It's a fun place to work and I'm learning lots of stuff and uses for containers I never would have imagined!

Micah is doing well. Since the last post he is tolerating the horseriding therapy so much better. He actually likes it now. He giggles, makes his happy noises, and even reaches down to pet Poppy's hair.

Oh, and the title "thank you, thank you very much" is what Elvis often closed his shows with, just in case you didn't know.
