Watching Lord of the Rings with Daddy.
Playing in the carseat box.
Having a good time at Karis' birthday party!
Yay for balloons!!!
"Helping" with laundry.
Standing all alone.
Nakey butt nap time.
#2) I love eggnog. I mean really, really love it. I love it so much that while I was pregnant I figured out how to make it at home. It saved us a lot of money, and I was a happy pregnant lady.
#3) When I was nannying Jakob I had to think of creative ways to explain things to him. When I was taking my maternity leave I drew this for Jakob. It's a sequence of events leading up to my return to work. I think it's the most artistic thing I've ever drawn. Seriously.
#5) My name means Luck or Ireland. My Grandpa named me after the red haired girl on The Waltons, and this is me dressed as a leprechaun.
#6) When I was in High School I was in the Panther Singers. It was an honor choir of sorts. I ate lunch in the choir room everyday which led to many nerdy picture opps. These were taken my Senior year. See? Can you find me?
I tag: whoever wants to share six random facts about themselves.
Wanna know how I did it? Go here.
In some circles they are known as wool longies. Wool is one of those magical fibers that draws moisture away from the skin and absorbs odor, so it makes wonderful diaper covers for cloth diapers. These pants are amazing! Since we EC, they are perfect for those "misses" that inevitably happen (and they have definitely been happening more lately!).
I would love to make about 7 more pairs so he has one for every day of the week. So, in short....all I really want for christmas is some thrift store wool sweaters (at least 30% wool please!).
Not only is wool great for diaper covers and longies, but you can make really awesome felted toys and other nifty things out of it! :) For example, I am in the process of making Emery some shoes like this out of felted wool. (which I think may have broken my machine :( nuts!)
I also made a pair of split crotch pants but I don't have a picture of those yet. I didn't use wool for these, but I'm considering it once my machine is in working order again. Hmmph.
Pretty cute huh? Please ignore the mess my house is in. Cleaning isn't my top priority. Emery is. :) That mountainous pile of what appears to be laundry is actually my sewing fabric stash. I', trying to thin it out.
Yeah, so I didn't make a "Frost on the Pumpkin" cake. I made pumpkin cheesecake brownies instead. Which, by the way, aren't really brownies...they don't contain any chocolate. How misleading, but they're still good I guess.
Until next time....
Here is the obligatory Halloween picture. I made my costume sans pattern so it took forever! It was made with nursing in mind. The top portion lifted up for access to a tank top that I turned into a nursing tank. The skirt portion was sewn to the tank top. It sounds a lot easier than it was. Phew. It was fun, but I'm glad it's over.
How was your Halloween?
