Bubbles in the Rain

Tuesday, April 22, 2008
Sunday morning I got up early with Kate while the hubby slept in a bit. She wanted to go outside to blow bubbles. I explained that it was raining but she wanted to go anyway. So, we donned our raincoats over our pajamas (me too) and put a pair of Harry's old boots on and went outside.


I am getting ready to list some of Kate's clothes on E-bay. I have never sold on E-bay before and I am kind of nervous about it. I plan to list the summer clothes from last year. If there is something anyone is specifically interested in, please e-mail me and let me know.

  1. HI Kim, connect up with PayPal. It's safer that way. Register a visa card (or whatever plastic you want/have) that you don't use all that often. IF there is ever an issue with PayPal, they shut your card down, (Until situation is resolved) and if it's a card you need/use every day, then you'll be out of luck. Use a card you never use, if you know what I mean! :)

    Snick :)

  2. I was wondering if you were lisitng and how much you were asking for the brown and blue dress in your July 31st entry and in the video of Kate laughing. Also, about the pink and white striped dress from your August 9th entry. Thanks!

    Love,

    I love all of Kate's clothes! Her last year is probably the perfect size for Landree. What is your 'name' for ebay? How can we know it's you to look at? I'm not a big 'ebay-er' either. I'd love see the pictures if you wanted to email me the prices and pictures! YEA!

  23. Kim,
    I would be interested in seeing what you are selling on ebay also. Kate has beautiful clothes. Also, I tried to click on your email link under your profile, but for some reason it is not going through for me. Do you think you could email me and then I could reply to you. Sorry, don't know why it's doing this. Thanks!

  25. Hi Kim, just wanted to pop in and say "hello" - I love reading all your blog entries and your Kate is just precious! It is hard to believe a year has past already! Great bubble photos too! If I lived in the USA I would definitely be checking out the ebay clothes.

  26. Oh how precious are these pics??? I love her little raincoat. Miss Kate Emerson is just so pretty. I love her smile. Looks like she enjoyed blowing bubbles. Glad you all had such a fun day.
    I am certainly interested in your ebay auction. Would love to bid on your pretty smocked dresses for Mallory's future mei mei. I ended up giving some of Mal's pretty dresses away because I didn't think we would adopt again. However, God had other plans. :)
    Have a great day!

  28. What a nice Mommy to go outside in the rain with Kate. She looks adorable! (And happy!)

  29. Love the bubble photo shot. Kate is so beautiful.
    I think you will really like ebay. I have sold a few items on there from when Aiden was a baby. Its a great way to make a little extra money.
    If you list anything from the boys let me know. I think they are a bit older then my son. He had a huge growth spurt.

  31. Kim,

    Your Kate is always dressed so BEAUTIFULLY! If Jane was smaller I would love to buy Kate's "old" clothes!

    The bubble pictures are darling! And your kitchen is gorgeous! LOVE all the white with dark counters.

    It is always fun to come over and see what you have posted! I hope you do get a colomn some place:)! But, there MUST be pictures ;).

  32. I will look back thru your photos so I can nail down some exact items from last year. Your whole wardrobe for Kate is delicious.

    Only accept Paypal, it's safe and easier.

  36. Cute. Where's the picture of you in your raincoat?

    ReplyDelete
  37. We LOVE bubbles here. We're waiting for it to warm up a bit before we get them outside this year. Can you believe that it actually snowed here yesterday?

    YIKES!

    Kate looks beautiful as always. I love the little pearl earrings. What a sweet girl.

    P.S. I know what you mean about Kate's clothes. I'm not parting with many of Hope's clothes from when she first came home either. Call it being a packrat...call it sentimental...whatever you call it, I'm just not letting go. :)
