The girls LOVE rainbows and went crazy when we saw one behind my brother's house. They have a beautiful view.

Swimming lessons and Dress ups

My kids have been in swimming lessons and I love the addition of the swim goggles to their usual dress-up dresses.

Love this picture. . .

Day Care or Preschool?!?

I watched most of my nieces for an afternoon. I lined them all up against the wall for snack time and passed out the goldfish crackers. Lots of cute girls!!

At the Lake

July 4th

I made the kids pose for a picture in their red, white, and blue before they ran to play in the water.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

**Skip to about 25 seconds into the song to hear the new verse she made up! :)

More Baby Hats

Here are some more of the crazy baby hats.

Photo Props

A friend of mine asked if I could knit some photo props for newborns. Having a new baby myself, I was happy to figure out the patterns. She sent me some pictures and here's some of the crazy stuff I made for her.

Leg Warmers

It seems to me, the eighties are coming back. (Skinny jeans?) So here are some leg warmers I knit up for my friends' little girl. I think they are adorable and am planning on making my girls a pair in every color. Even though I doubt my girls will actually where them. Why is it they don't appreciate all the things I can make??? At least my baby won't have a choice! Ha!

ABC Movie

I created this little ABC movie of the kids in 2008 for an education class that I was taking. I'm throwing it on the blog in order to save it for my kids to watch.

Here's my version of the headbands that are so popular right now. I also made a tiny version for little babies. I have sold a few of these and am happy to make them for people. If you are interested, leave a comment. I sell them for $10.

In the works. . .

I am creating a pattern for the knitted headbands with flowers that everyone around seems to be wearing. At least I see them on lots of people as I've been out Christmas shopping. A neighbor brought one over for me to look at and I finally worked out the pattern. I will post pictures soon.
Also in the works is my pattern for mitten animals. My favorite are the sharks that I am giving my son for Christmas. The shark teeth are the best. Thanks to friends who know how to crochet better than I do!

Christmas Stockings

These stockings have been years in the making, but they are finally all complete. I started making the kids' stockings for each of their first Christmases. After the third kid, I decided I really should make Mom and Dad ones. AND, since we're expecting a new baby just after Christmas, I should make hers as well. I got busy and decided this was the year to hang all the stockings. And they are probably my favorite decoration.

Strawberry Shortcake dolls

I am a terrible blogger! But I have been busy creating. Here is a picture of the dolls I made for my girls for Christmas. Here is the link to the pattern. I changed it up a little and did the hair a little differently. I love how they turned out and am excited to give them to the girls!

Summer Sandals

I love these little sandals! I followed a pattern (well, sort of) for the most part. It called for a button on the side but I kept thinking that the shoes would never stay on. So I decided to try putting elastic inside the band that goes around the ankle. It stretches to get them on and then stays snug against the foot.
I made these for a friend who wanted a pair for the fourth of July. I am so excited about them!

Beaded Hat

I'm glad (ok, only a little glad) for the cold weather that gave my niece a few more chances to wear the beaded hat!  It was too big for her when she was born.  Now that it finally fits, we're heading into summer.  I'll just have to make another one for next winter.

Knitting with beads is surprisingly easy and fun.  Of course, I had to rewrite this pattern to my liking.  It's a pattern found on Ravelry if anyone is interested.  Thanks Jessie for finding super great patterns for me to try out!

Here's the pink shirt and the back of the dress shown below.

Another dress shirt cut down to size

This one was another dress shirt. I love the little belts. And the detail of the buttons without having to making button holes!
