Show and Tell

sorry that my post is soooo late, but i have had a super busy day.....ill tell you about that real quick.....if you read yesterday's post you know that the army decided to change some things on us and it was going to push our move back.....well this morning, things changed AGAIN.....stephen has his orders and the kids and i still have to wait.....we have spent the day trying to do anything and everything to rush them......chances are that he will leave before us.....no biggie, just sucks a little because he has only been home for four months and we really wanted to make this move together......

today's post may end up being my last for a several months......while my stuff is floating on a boat over to italy.....i will try my best to get to a computer and at least still look at all the great show and tells till i am up and running again.....so anyways, thats the update as of today......on to my s&t.....


i would like to introduce you to sarah, the dashing redhead, and annabell, the beautiful Blondie.....im not a huge collector of dolls, but these two are special to me and i love them dearly.......they were both given to me by my mawmaw.....

annabell is 28 years old.....she was given to me when i was born......she has made many a moves with me over the years and has the wear to prove it.......her dress is very simple and white with light blue flowers and ribbon embroidered on it....she has white lace up boots and frilly panties......her hair is a major mess but i am too afraid to mess with it.....her face has faded some, but still has bright baby blues and Rosy red lips........

now sarah, on the other hand, i have only owned now for the last two or three years.....she belonged to my great grandmother.......im not sure where the name sarah came from, but it stuck......she is wearing a lovely light pink cotton dress with a lace overlay on the skirt, neckline, and cuffs....she also wears lace up boots.....her undies are more traditional to the times, as they go from neck to toes.....her face is white as white can be and she has small coral colored lips.....unlike annabell,who only has one painted nail left, sarah has all her nails panted.....mawmaw used to say that she looked she was getting ready to be "courted".....

I am thinking about you and praying for you. I can't imagine all that must be on your mind right now. Your dolls are so sweet and precious. I am glad you shared them, but I am more glad that you told what is going on in your life. I will pray that you feel God's presence at ALL times during this. And, thanks to your husband for his service to our country. God bless all of you.

I like the redish hair!! I am wondering if you are going to Naples--be careful if you are!! My brother-in-law and his wife (who was born and raised in Italy) had many stories to tell us. A lot of robbing goes on there. Just be extra careful if you go to Naples!!

Hi again! My gf was in WW I and
my father in WW II and my hubby
was in the service as a Coastie.
Anybody who is in the service
deserves much more credit, than
they are given. With Freedom comes
a price. Thank you and all the troops!

hey chick- the blonde doll mawmaw bought while we were in Germany along with our cabage patch dolls- so you have had her a long time since you were 6 or 7, i have a brunette one in a blue dress... you should have a handmade doll in a yellow dress our great-grandmaw made you that you have had since near birth, I have one in a pink dress... even funnier if you look @ the butt of your cabbage patch where it is signed you will notice you have one of the 1st 100 ever made; no wonder mawmaw was to scared to send them to us in germany;) jenn
