True No Matter How Old They Are

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook. This is so true no matter how old your kids are. You can do or say whatever you want to me/or about me (those who know me know how quiet and reserved I am...haha) but if you mess with my kids you have crossed a line that you can never backpetal fast enough for you to ever be my friend again.

Sister JE sent me a lovely shawlette a while back. Somehow in all the goings on recently I did not get it blogged. Here are a couple of pictures. Look at the shawl, not me. Euroflax linen and I believe the color is called Flamingo. It is lovely.

Play Day

Allison and TJ had a wedding to attend so the girls came over to play and have lunch at McDonalds.

Love that playground.

I don't think there is anyone who can drag Halloween out as long as Scout.

Another New Hat

I made my little neighbor a new hat. I am confident that someday soon  we will stop having this summer weather. We will probably go from 80 to 35 in one day. I made this pattern for Jo many years ago out of a yarn that the color was called Pom Pom. I have called the pattern the Pom Pom hat ever since even though it has no pompoms. Super easy. Cast on 56 with 11's and switch to 10's. Purl the first row.
K2,P2 for rows 2-27. Decrease rows 28-40. I have used many colors and combinations of colors.
This is knit with Joann's Sensations Sincerely yarn, #K627-Royal Blue. Very soft yarn. Pattern fits a 1-2yr old. The K2,P2 stretches to fit many sizes.

Cool Card

If you have checked out Pinterest you know they have lots of things that you can add to your list in the craft area. Crazy Aunt Jane loves scrapbooking and LOVES making cards. I had to show the absolutely darling card she made Jo for her birthday. Coolest idea I have ever seen.

The candles on the cake are rolled up "dollars". This is so cool.
Jo's cake.
Monster High cake with Frankie Stein. Allison out did herself again.
It was a great party.
