I did it! I did it! I did it! Snow Valley Express-FINISHED!!! Wooo hooo!!!!

I was sooooo happy to finish this train this morning!!! I wanted to have it done before we moved next month in time to give to my dad, and it is DONE!!! I started this in Dec. 2004!!! And finished May 2013!!! I was not stitching it for most of that time, for most of it, it sat in the WIP drawer, and I ignored it! But, I was SOOO relieved to have it finished!! 
 Next up, I have to share! We had our family portraits done on Mother's Day, and I think the one of Alyssa is absolutely ADORABLE!!! I love her little bare baby toes!! We got the old time-y antique type ones! I love how everything is all in Sepia print except for the basket of flowers! They are the original color!

Today I had to go the dentist...ugh...but I did alright! ALOT better than the last time I had to go, last month. glad that is over now! Now all I have to focus on is the move! The house gets packed up next week! GASP! I am super excited though for this next chapter of our lives! 

Now go dust off those dancing shoes and do the cha cha with me! I'm happy dancin'!!!
