My mom gave Katie a practical "just for her" gift of fabric, zipper, & thread for a new dress. Along with that gift came a pair of Gingher dress maker shears (fabric only). There were one or two other gifts for her personally with specific spending instructions ~ looks like a shopping trip is coming up.
It was a great day, spent with many women/girls who love my Katie Lynn and wanted to make her day special. It was a blessing to me to see this love and all these folks coming to encourage my daughter.
