This past Friday night we had Kayley's Birthday party - Oct was just too busy! When we saw the new Build-A-Bear kits at Costco, I knew it what theme we had to do! I made all the girls goodie bags using the BAB dies and Designer Paper from Stampin' up! They turned out so cute!

The birthday girl!
All of the girls before we started making the Build-A-Bears.
In the stamp room starting on the Build-A-Bears. Most of the girls had never sewn before, so it was quite an experience. Thank goodness my hubby is a great dad and helped me sew the bears for the girls. We were sewing until 11:30 that night! We did get all the bears done and the girls had a great time!
The morning after - all the girls with their Build-A-Bear animals.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

A PAIR OF SHOES - AUTHOR UNKNOWN
I am wearing a pair of shoes. They are ugly shoes. Uncomfortable shoes. I hate my shoes. Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair. Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step. Yet, I continue to wear them. I get funny looks wearing these shoes. They are looks of sympathy. I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs. They never talk about my shoes. To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable. To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them. But, once you put them on, you can never take them off. I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world. Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them. Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much. Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt. No woman deserves to wear these shoes. Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman. These shoes have given me the strength to face anything. They have made me who I am. I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
