I am inviting you to help us celebrate by participating in another 'Gimme-That' on our Facebook fan page! I will be posting pictures of a HaddyGrace Item and a sale price through out the day on Wednesday on our FB fan Page. the first person to comment receives the item for the sale price. Any one else that wants the item can comment to receive it for free shipping.
Hadassah Grace was Born 'Independent'. Born by emergency C-Section, she whimpered a few times and then took so much interest in the going-ons of the operating room that she forgot all about crying and just gazed around the room. She'd turn her head whenever someone in the operating room spoke. She gazed up at her Daddy with adoration as she sucked on her tiny fists.
I was saddened that I didn't get to hold my baby while I was on the operating table, but was Blessed beyond measure by watching my husband bonding with his baby girl!
And now here she is, I year old, walking for 2 months now, Thinking she is every bit as big as her 3 older Siblings. She is Daddy's Girl all the way and is never happier than when he comes home from work to sweep her up into his arms!!
Happy Birthday Hadassah Grace!!!

My husband has told 2 of my BFF's Beka & Rachel and my 2 oldest daughters what he is getting me for Christmas! Talk about suspense!!!! I can hardly take it! He knew better than telling our 'just turned 3' son Mitchell! He would tell me in a heartbeat! My heart rate sure accelerated the other day when said 3yr old turns to me and say, "Mom, I know what you're getting for Christmas!" Getting right into his face and very seriously I asked him "What?" Just as seriously he answered, " A PRESENT!" ARGH!!! the frustration continues!!!!!
Here is a picture of little Miss Haddy Grace, My new favorite HAPPY picture!!! Just had to share with you!! Check out my Photographer's blog here .

Butternut squash makes the BEST pumpkin pies. Mom got right to work getting the Squash ready to cook and then put into the freezer to make lots of pumpkin pies for the upcoming Holidays!
Yes while I was happily sewing away my mom and sister were busy in the kitchen!!! It was BLISS. Needless to say the kitchen is not my favorite place to be! After lunch dishes were all done (by Mom ans Sis) and girls were home from school Mom was still busy in the kitchen making PUMPKIN PIES!!! The whole House smelled soooo delicious!! Yes, It was a perfect day! Good conversations with family, Mom cooking in my kitchen, and Me getting projects off the list.
My Children and their Grandma busy makin Pumpkin Pies using Butternut Squash.

After I made certain that the girls were sure they were not going to change their minds about their decisions I started hunting for ideas and supplies. Kristina mentioned her idea to her Bible club leader and ended up borrowing her Egyptian head piece, we went to Jo-Ann's Fabric and bought some gold fabric on clearance, and the black and Gold fabric for the veil was also on clearance. Then we went to Goodwill to find gold jewelry. There we met a friend who was purchasing a small Christmas tree to use as a jewelry holder in her shop, the tree was covered in with gold pearls and beads, after chatting with her and explaining what we were up too she said she has no use for all the gold pearls and chains! We had one happy little girl!!! especially after she remembered she had some gold shoes in her 'dress-up' box that she hadn't opened in years! TaDa!!! My Beautiful Egyptian Princess in her costume that cost under 5 dollars!
The Book worm was such a good fit for Staci! She started reading at 3 years old and hasn't ever quit reading since then! She constantly surprises me with information, when i ask her where she learned it she always says 'I read it'. She loves school and hates to miss a day, Yes the other morning she cried buckets of tears when i mentioned she stay at home because of her tummy ache. So with a hairband, green pipe cleaners and pom-poms, and LOTS of face paint, and a large piece of cardboard we had the cutest little bookworm in the entire state of Iowa!!! This costume was less than 1$!
That's how the Zimmermans do costumes on a 'shoe-string budget'. After putting so much energy into the 'big kid's' costumes. I had none left for the 'little kids'. Did I run out and BUY costumes for them??? Not quite, The just went as their own little selves and had as much fun eating candy as anyone else!

the hardest part was getting the dress onto this little wiggle worm, and getting her to stay still for pictures. I finally settled for taking pictures of the 'Back' of the dress. I will leave the rest to the professionals! Check out my friend Beka's photography site:
