Well, with a day to spare, I've finished the dolls! Now, I'm not totally happy with Lauren -- her hair isn't right and she has no neck (in real life, she does indeed have a neck. A very nice one). Also, Scott's head is a little small in comparison to his lovely Laur. But, they're dolls, so I think the recipients will understand that they're not supposed to be perfect replicas. I'm happiest with the Jo doll by far -- I think she'll love it. Lauren is very polite, so even if she's secretly thinking "does Elizabeth really think I have no neck?," she'll be gracious as can be.
And, you'll all be happy to know that I've seriously chilled out after freaking out last week because I didn't get anything done with Ruby's illness and the crap weather. Today I made the last treat for our holiday party (yummy fudge!) and bought the ingredients for the punch (champagne and cranberry juice!), so I'm feeling pretty good. And if we have to get Ruby's passport done in Calgary, so be it. It's not the end of the world.
