I know. ANOTHER shawl. But they're so pretty and work up so fast!
This one's a "thank you for putting up with us and bombing in on you and eating all your food" gift for my mother-in-law. I'm thinking of making my sister-in-law one as well. Getting excited for our trip to Denver!
It takes a LOT to bring him down - and even more to get him to fall asleep on the couch. Hopefully he's not having those wacky, sick dreams. (You know what I'm talking about - we've all had them.) Hopefully he's just dreaming about feeling better.
I pretty much have this pattern memorized, now! Same pattern as I did here, but with a different yarn and hook. This one was made as a bartering deal with a friend from church. I get a couple jars of her wonderful homemade sugar scrub in exchange. Makes me happy. =)
I'm currently working on a luscious red one to sell. Can't wait to see how that one turns out!
A friend from church asked me to make some of these for her grand-daughters. She requested the particular colors and “lots of bling”. So, I hand-sewed some iridescent beads on to them. I'm pretty tickled with them! =)
It looks like a giant snickerdoodle, right? But it's so much better than that - and I love snickerdoodles!
I came across this recipe on a Facebook ad for Just A Pinch. It kept popping up and driving me nuts, so I decided to try it last night. Let's just say it didn't survive the night. Even the boys had two pieces each! It's so dangerously easy and tasty, I highly recommend it. And the whole "flour will settle to make its own crust" thing is pretty spiffy, too!
1. Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend for 30 seconds.
2. Pour into buttered 9 inch pie pan. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (mine was still pretty jiggly after 45 minutes, so I left it in for another 10). The flour will settle to make its own crust.
Last night, I suddenly became the mother of five. No, I didn't give birth to multiples, nor did we adopt. We simply offered to watch our friends' three, wonderful children so they could attend a banquet. They are such a delight and so well-behaved, I didn't really think twice when we were asked. Our night involved lots of soda, pizza, popcorn, romping, and a water fight. Needless to say, it was a little crazy, but a LOT of fun and we all crashed when it was over!
This same, very sweet family blessed us with some awesome hand-me-downs - a bike for Rob and a Power Wheels John Deere Tractor for both of them. Talk about ecstatic little boys!
Pretty proud of our little Cubbie. Not only did he finish his work book, but he was the only first year that memorized ALL 24 of his verses. Glory goes COMPLETELY to God for giving this little boy a beautiful mind - we seriously slacked on working with him! A HUGE thank you to his teachers for working with him and encouraging him.
