Oh winter....when will you end?

Yikes, it's been a while. Nice to see ya! I've been hibernating. Between Jimmy's schedule on his surgery rotation and that nasty winter that just can't leave well enough alone, I haven't felt much like blogging. Lame, I know. I haven't exactly been lazy though. We've been FULL of projects around here (mostly as a way to forget about the lack of sunshine, and the over abundance of snow)

                                                 Can I show you what I've been up to?

Jim made a Lego table for the boys. I need to paint the legs, but isn't that awesome! The boys love it! Lego is a wonderful thing.

My hooks have been busy too. I made these little shoes for Elaine. I would show you a picture of them on her, but as it turns out she hates things on her feet as much as I do! I'm not offended, I had alot of fun making them! I also made two baby hats that have already been given away, they were so little and sweet though. Sweet baby heads *sigh*

These pants were the pinnacle for me! Ammon and Luke have needed a pair of light weight cotton pants. They are sweaty little sleepers :). PJ's are simple enough to make but I had to re-thread my serger. (dah dah dahnnnn)  I have never before attempted doing this, I usually just ask my mom to do it for me, but I did it! I can read a diagram! I was so proud!!!!

So that has been our month. Sorry I haven't been sharing along the way. I'll try to catch us all up in the next day or two!

I'd like to know, has spring sprung where you are?

Those pants turned out really well. I sometimes get funny puckering on pj pants, but I still love them! Cute as can be booties, too. Way to go, Jim, for the awesome lego table. Legos are amongst the coolest toys ever.
