I just want to give a shout out to the decade in which I was born.

Bandana Bag

My husband has a huge collection of bandanas that he's acquired over the years and he let me peruse them for use in my new bag. I used the butt of two pairs of jeans for plenty of inside storage space. I love it.

I'm currently working on sewing a cloth diaper with the instructions from this book. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to use it as a diaper, but they make the best burp cloths.

Birthday Fun

Ok, so the cat's out of the bag for those of you who know when my husband's birthday actually was; you now know how non-recent my posts can be, BUT for the rest of you, we can go on pretending this blog is an up to date report of my favorite things. We recently (eh hem, relative term here) celebrated Jake's birthday along with two of his good friends who also share birthdays around the same time, and significant ones at that (35 is very significant b/c you can run for president). We had a good ole potluck, some marshmellows by the fire and the yummy cake pictured here. I'm excited to see what God is going to do in the next 30 years!

Wet Times

Although potty training is not necessarily one of my favorite things, this picture is. Maybe his pre-reading mind will receive some kind of osmosis from his reading material.

First Pattern

I recently completed my first knitting project following a pattern; a toddler cardigan. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned it out and thankful to my model for so graciously donning a girl's sweater for 30 seconds.

Sous Chef

It's great having a willing and able assistant in the kitchen these days. Yes, it tends to be messier (honestly not by much) and yes, it requires more patience and less "perfection" (and let's be honest again, we could all do with less "perfection"). Here is my little sous chef buttering the tops of Crescent Chicken Bundles, a family favorite!

Zane has been into games lately and it's been tons of fun. In fact I woke up from a nap on the couch the other day with his face 2 inches from mine, deck of cards in hand saying, "Play this?" Here we are playing Spin and Go. He also enjoys war and just watching me play solitaire (with real cards, not on the computer). I think we'll tackle chess next. Just kidding maybe Memory or Chutes and Ladders.
