It is a 2002 Dodge Caravan. It has been dubbed "Blueberry"
It is a very basic model without power locks or windows. The only way to open the rear liftgate is with the key.
It does have a cassette player and cruise control.
It only had the middle bench seat, so it currently only seats 4.
The middle seat can be all the way to the left or to the right. Since the tracks are the same in both the middle and rear positions, we assumed that the middle seat could be moved back the same way that we had seen some vans with the rear seat moved forward. (we were wrong!) We are going to try and get a rear seat at a junk yard.

I had an OB appointment on Tuesday. I was 21½ weeks along and was measuring 24 weeks! I've never done that before, and when they measured at the ultrasound, Andrew was measuring exactly as far along as I was. I've gained 5 pounds so far.
I have been working on some more tatting designs for my new book/Extreme Tatters Round Robin. I have a sand bucket and shovel done, but wanted to send Easter eggs in the next round as it is due right at Easter. My 2nd egg turned out weird, but I think I know how I can get it the right shape. I did want to have a 3rd design to send also, so I think I better get going on that!
I started sewing dresses Monday for the girls to wear to church on Easter. (I know, nothing like waiting to the last minute!) I didn't have a pattern for the style of dress I wanted, so I used the bodice from one pattern and ad libbed the rest. I got their dresses done Wednesday night and started on one for me on Thursday. I also didn't have a pattern for mine, so I winged it, too. I got mine done this morning. Sarah thinks I should sew a shirt for William, but I don't think I want to make a purple floral shirt for him! (I probably have fabric downstairs that would work, but with only a day left to work on it, I don't think I want to add the stress! Maybe next year!)
