My little boo boo bear is 1 already!

It went slow at times and then it just flew. But I can't believe that my little gr son is 1 already! And the pumpkin pie is 5 1/2. He is walking and into everything and she is so grown up (discovering boys :( !!) Makes me feel like life is just zooming by. I truly enjoy them. But when I started this blog I was still adjusting to being a nana, staying at home and not a corp shark. Now I love being home and even when I am bored I don't want to go back to work. But i realize staying home is hard. Being a care giver is very hard work. And raising children is the most import job one is lucky enough to have.

I have the creative bug again. It seems that this only happens when I have so much to do that taking time to create, craft, knit or crochet seems crazy; that I feel like that is what I really want to do. It's like is not as fun without the guilt. Is that wierd? When I stop doing what I don't want to do or what I really have to do and tell myself that I deserve a break that I really enjoy my crafting. It is like a gift to myself. Just like a day at the spa. Not something I want to do can do every day, but a reward to myself because I deserve it. I made this and thought I would try to sell it but before it was finished, my dd wanted it for her best friend who recently had a baby girl. I did not even get to take a pic, but it was so adorable. I made it with Vanna White Baby. Although the texture left a lot to be desired, I love the weight of it. It felt somewhere between a sport and a worsted. Definetly not the fingering or usual baby weight yarn. I would love to find a soft non-synthetic yarn in this weight.

Happy Halloween!

We had a 1st Birthday, Halloween Party, Keg Party and it was a blast. But we had more than 1/2 the keg left over the next day and that made us all say we must be getting old. But we had so much fun.
