My Sister Started a Fertility Blog...

My big sister and my best friend in the whole world, RoxAnne, just started a blog that will let you follow her journey through Fertility Treatment. She is raw and honest to the core, and quit funny I must add!!! You won't want to miss a word:)
I can't tell you how excited I am to possibly be having a little niece or nephew very soon. But even more so, I am so excited for my sister to be a Mommy! She has always adored children and kids have attracted to her like moths to a flame our entire life. It always amazed me how she could say one word to a child and they loved her instantly. She will be the most amazing mom and I can't wait to see her with a little angel of her own. She had a little of a late start as she didn't meet her husband until she was 35 and they married recently, she is 39 now:) So now that she has her Soul Mate by her side, they are thrilled to start adding to their family!!!
If you would like to follow her journey, go to
Just think of all the cute stuff I get to make for her......I can't wait!!!!!!

Our front yard!!!! Several more inches fell after this, so the entire yard is covered and the gazillion lights David put up are out!!!

Zeke trying to make a snowball and realizing how cold the snow really is:)

Some fun stuff we made for Christmas:)

I think everyone is feeling a little bit of the bad economy, so this year we decided to be crafty for Christmas!!! Here are a few of the little things we made for the ones we love!!!!
Cupcake Scrabble Tile Pendants!!!

Cupcake bottle cap pendants for Cousins Whitney & Zoe!!
***Aunt Jody, their mommy, makes the best cup cakes!!!

Fun magnets for our fridge!!!

Texas Longhorn Magnets for Cousin Pressley!!!

We made these little Snowmen ornaments for Maggie's classmates for Christmas:)
On the back had each child's name; I think they all liked them!!!
*****all these ideas came from Googling ideas and how to's!!! Don't pay for any of these ideas 'how to's'; always Google 'FREE' with what you are looking up OR click on 'videos' or 'images' in the upper left corner!!!! There are TONS of free craft ideas out there!!!!


I wanted to take a minute and thank all my wonderful customers that have made 2009 a very fun year for Magaby's!!! I can't tell you how humbled I am that I have been a tiny part of so many special events! It occurred to me the other day that the little things I love to make are a part of a beloved child's birthday, a 'first' mommy's baby shower or a special little something for a precious baby, to name a few. To me, those events are unforgettable and so special, and I am thrilled to have made something to bring a smile to someone's day!! So, Thank You, from the bottom of my heart!!
I pray everyone has a Blessed holiday and a wonderful 2010!!!!
Love, Miranda ~ Magaby's
***and David, Maggie, Abbey & Zeke(my everyday Blessings~I love you guys)!!!!!

Leg Warmers for Infants, Babies, Toddlers and Big Girls and Boys now at Magaby's Kidture

These great little leg warmers are so great and can be used for so many things. From protecting your little ones knees when crawling and in dance class. You can even put them on their arms to be super stylish! My favorite part is they can work as tights but you have the convenience of not having to take them on and off for diaper changes or potty training!!!
The fit is great and can last for years as your little one grows up. The fit for 0-6m through about 18 months is thigh high, and/or from 2 years up to 6-8 years is knee high.
**picture is of a two year old***
Please check back as I will be listing many more styles in the next week!
Thanks for looking;)~

Magaby's will be a feature on Good Morning Texas..

I am sooooo excited and thrilled to announce that Magaby's was invited to be on Good Morning Texas, November 16th at 9am. It is a local morning show in Dallas on Channel 8 (ABC) that does a sweet feature on 'Momprenuers'. My awesome husband, David, saw a little blip about it on the show this morning and decided to write in about Magaby's and OUR story. I happened to be at the Pumpkin Patch with my little ones for their Chapel School field trip. He called me and read the email he had sent and I have to say that I haven't felt that loved and appreciated in a long time. If only we knew everyday how our husbands felt about us deep down inside everyday:) It was truly an amazing email full of love, admiration and respect for me that I didn't see coming at all. We tend to get so busy with our daily tasks and forget to say the most important things to the ones we love the most! I just hope he knows in return that I think, and have ALWAYS thought, he is the MOST amazing man I have ever known. His love, strength, knowledge, tenderness and devotion to his family has seen me through some very dark days as well as been the center of my joy for the past eight years. I would be lost without him and hope our children know that they have the MOST INCREDIBLE father ANY child could ever pray for, much less be blessed with!
OOPS!!! As I was saying..........He received a response an hour later with the invitation to be on November 16th. We are so grateful to everyone who has supported our little shop and pray we can continue to deliver fun and unique items for years to come!! For through the Grace of God all things are possible!!

Magaby's will be on vacation from October 28th through November 13th as we prepare for the show!

My baby had his first hair cut:(

Zeke sat very still for his first haircut, I was told. Unfortunately, I was busy with his sisters and didn't have a chance to get any pictures of daddy actually cutting! But I did manage to salvage a lock of hair for the scrapbook. I suppose the sitting still, for the entire ten minutes this took, was more than little Zeker could bear. As I had to chase him around the kitchen, into the pantry, into the refridgerator and around the kitchen once more, just to get this one shot! I was a little shocked because he is usually all smiles and poses when he sees the camera come out...little ham!!
It's hard to tell, but he actually got about two inches cut off. (It was a bit of a mullet:))
So here is to the LAST 'First Hair Cut' for the Dodsons!!! Another bittersweet little milestone as my babies keep growing up on me!
Daddy didn't do too bad!!

I Love This Minky Damask!!

Finally, I got to create something with my black and white Minky Damask!!! I have had this fabric for several months now and just haven't had the time to do anything with it:0
So a sweet customer of mine thought this was as precious as I did and wanted this sweet little outfit in the damask. I just had to share because I thought it turned out so adorable! It is such a classic look and you can't go wrong with black, pink and white!!! I think it would look just as cute with green, blue, red, etc.:)
You can find this set and much more in my Etsy shop at You also have the option of getting just the little diaper cover too:)
