You may have noticed a distinct lack of recipes or DIY projects here at Smockity Frocks recently. That is because there is a limit to my genius, people!
I have been spending my time and brain cells picking out paint colors, door knobs, and light fixtures for our new bedrooms  and dressing kids as Biblical characters for Fall Festival costume contests .
Here from left to right, you can see Pharoah's daughter with Baby Moses, whom she just retrieved from the Nile river, in the basket at her feet; Delilah, with Samson's hair and the scissors she used to cut it; your obligatory angel; the dry bones from Ezekiel's vision; and a very distraught Miriam, obviously upset about about the prospect of placing her baby brother, Moses, into the muddy Nile River.
And also a random, friendly dog who seems to have taken an interest in Delilah's hair cutting skills.
Lastly, my creative energy was used completely up trying to pick out a dress for my husband's company 's Christmas party and entertaining my daughters with this re-enactment of my party poses. (Email readers may need to click through to see the video.)
