Mini Me
So, Lucy now has her own blog... for those of you who don't know, both of my kids have their own blogs where they keep people informed of their lives. It is a great way for family and friends to see what they are up to and get the most recent pictures! I'll still be writing a bit about my kiddos here as some things are best told in my voice instead of theirs, but I do try to talk more about other stuff here... there is only so much "kid talk" this mom can take.

So, if you want to keep tabs... here is a link to Sawyer's blog and one to Lucy's

I'm going to dig out Sawyer's sweater and try and knit a few rows. A little lady isn't too happy right now, so I'm not sure how it will pan out... at this rate, she will fit into the sweater before it is done!

October Round Up

Random Chatter

Somehow the month has slipped away.  Lucy and I went on our trip to Montana and it was amazing.  We got to meet a lot of our knitter friends at the Bear Paw spin in and it was a ton of fun.  Lucy is a champion flier, but does not care for the car much... luckily, now that we are back home, she won't have to be in it too often. I didn't take too many pictures, but here are a few.

Brittany's new puppy, Bomber. He was adorable! (And you can see that they have an actual fall down in Montana... gorgeous trees!)

The spin-in... it was so fun to be surrounded by people who love the same things I do!

The red fiber throw down.  You could bring fiber and they mixed it all up and you got back a mixture of what everyone brought. There was a red pile and a rainbow pile.  I am planning on carding mine up with some SPARKLE as soon as I get a chance to breathe....

After I got home, it was straight to party planning, as Sawyer's party was Saturday.  I had planned on doing a Very Hungry Caterpillar party, and it worked out GREAT! We had all the food the caterpillar ate, I had coloring pages for the kids, and a bean bag game where you could throw the fruits the caterpillar ate into his mouth.  Everyone had a great time... I was really pleased with everything.  Here are a few pictures from that.  I can not believe that Sawyer is already TWO! Crazy. 

Yes, I made a giant photo collage


All the food

The favor table

Our computer is broken, so blogging may be sparse for a while. My mom was nice enough to loan us her computer for a while so I could get pictures of the birthday up.  Now it's time to get the house put back together and get ready for Halloween!! Crazy....

Compare and Contrast

Mini Me
Lucy has started semi-fitting into her 3-month clothes, so I pulled them all out... I can't believe she is already growing. Yes, she is almost a month old (what?!?) but still... she's supposed to be my little girl. Anyway, I found this picture of Sawyer in the same outfit.. he is about 6 weeks old in this one.

And here are a couple of Lucy at a month old. I will have to remember to take the picture again in two weeks so we can really compare the two of them... 

Sticks and String
I finished another project! What-what! It's Weston's hat... and I don't have a picture of it (but if you are on Rav, there are pictures there.  I love it. This is the second time I've knit this pattern and both times it has just made me so happy! I love the decreasing.... it is so creative. And I love the ribbing and the way there are increases incorporated instead of using smaller needles... basically, I just LOVE this pattern. AND, she is having a sale right now (33% off a single pattern or collection) so go check out her patterns!

Old Pictures

Mini Me
Sawyer is getting a molar right now... which means he has a runny nose and a general crabby attitude. Poor guy. I understand why he doesn't feel well, but it still makes the days a bit rougher than normal. While he was napping I was looking at my iPhoto library and I found these pictures I took back in April... that kid. He's amazing. I love him.

Matching Hats

Sticks and String
I finished something! Sometimes crazy things happen around here... I was finally able to finish Lucy's Conduit hat.  I love it! She seems to be quite indifferent about the whole thing....

My goal is to get a picture of both kiddos in their hats sometime this winter... it may take all winter seeing as how Sawyer just loves to wear hats. :P  Last night I cast on my Leethal Knits Mystery Shawl... I don't know what it's going to look like! CRAZY! I am working my way through the first clue and I like how it is going so far. Hopefully I am able to keep up and will have a finished shawl at the end of the month.  And if it isn't something I love, I will have a Christmas gift ready to go!
