It's SO much prettier than the builder's base.
And soooooooo much cleaner!

So cute and funny

I can't find my pixie anywhere. I've been looking all over. Where did she go?

Dying laughing...

Mom, this is the kind of thing you're missing on Facebook.
For the rest of you, let it be noted that Frances is my mother in law, and Jennifer is one of my best friends. And of course, John is my hubby. And yes, I did say that. Stupid trees...

Quite possibly the neatest picture I've taken in a long time

I learned something new today!

I learned how to make a shell edging. :D

These are the britches I made for the Pixie for her birthday. They still fit in the body but are too short in the legs, so I took them down into shorties for this summer. And now that I have a little girl, I need to learn some of those fancy edges. I watched a youtube video over and over to learn how, and then I did it!

Summer fun in the spring time

What else are you supposed to do when it's 90 degrees in April?

Happy Easter!

Let us rejoice and be glad!

I worked furiously all week on vests for the boys. I wouldn't have had to work so hard, but I procrastinated and then made the wrong size vest first, so I ended up having to make 2 vests in one week. Oh well! They looked sharp for church, even if they wouldn't look at me!

I'm taking them to Portrait Innovations this month so I can get some pictures where everyone is looking and no one is making a face.

The Easter Bunny brought books for everyone, and yo-yos for the boys and a bunny for the baby. What a nice rabbit!

We had a busy week this week. Rowan was on spring break, so we had trips to the dentist, children's museum, open gym, and the orthodontist. Eleri also had feeding therapy. I was running full tilt all week and knitting in all my spare time. Tomorrow will be spent catching up with the laundry and housework that I neglected.
But we had some fantastic sunny days:

A visit with some Davises:
Eleri visits with the ladies

And for April Fools I made the boys some eggs out of marshmallows. They were a hit.

Rowan goes back to school tomorrow, and it's going to seem really quiet around here. Maybe I'll start prepping to paint that wall in the kitchen, so I can maintain the proper level of insanity. ;)
