Here's To A New and Hopefully Better Year

We're well on our way into a new year and things are going well. I have a trip planned for the girls and I to stay at my parents house for a month this summer and if all goes well Shawn and I will be looking to purchase a home when I get back from my trip. I can't wait to get all my things out of storage. :-)

The girls had their very first ever snow day. They were so excited. Great Falls school district refused to call snow days no matter how crappy the weather was.


This was taken less then an hour after Shawn shoveled and you can barely see where he had shoveled.

I've been knitting a bit. Some of it I can't show right now because they are test knits. I made the girls a lace shawl for their American Girl dolls.

Thistle Doll Shawl

The yarn is a sparkly sock yarn from Red Heart that I found at Fred Meyer. The girls each got a pair of socks for Christmas with this yarn.

My favorite fuzzy, orange foot warmer.

Meet Mouth my sisters lovely, orange, fat kitty. He is the ultimate lovely kitty.

Mr. Spaz

The little black kitty is Spaz and he has to be the most unique kitty I've ever seen. He's not a lap kitty but he does love curling up under the blankets. His favorite place is on the top bunk which is Kaitys bed.

I finally finished my Love Bug socks.

Found some orange and blue sock yarn for my little Boise State Broncos fan.

Lorna's laces sock yarn

Bree is a little diehard Broncos fan. I've never seen a 6 year old girl that will ditch her toys for a football game. I'm going to probably make her some knee socks.

I'll end this post with a pick of my sisters kitty boys curled up in my lap.

Happy Crafting!!
