crafts

The kids have been making lego guns and Jason is trying to make a kick-ass version that really shoots little lego bricks (please don’t point that at my face, kids). He got quite a bit done but is missing a few pieces and needs to wait until he can do some shopping.

I printed off this awesome robot skull paper project for the kids but it ended up just Jason and I at our desks cutting and folding like nobody’s business.

Jason had to show off his perfectionism by pulling out the exacto knife, while I hacked away with child-sized scissors. Yep, mine is the crumpled one on the right.

More knits…

Finished another romper in newborn size and it is so soft and tiny!

Once again, homemade buttons.

Jason and I are quite a team. He casts on my stitches for me, I knit the project. I mix the Primo clay for the buttons, he made the mold and made the buttons and I finish them off with a glaze and the baking.

Size 6 month bear booties…

And the current project is a 0-3 month sized sleep sack or “baby bag.” It has a sweater styled top but then goes on to a gown-like sack that cinches at the bottom.

And now that I’ve gotten this far in the pattern, I foresee some cardigans in my future. Easy peasy baby sweaters!

Carni day

We haven’t been to the local fair in YEARS. But I saw the monster truck show advertised and thought the boys would enjoy it. It was fun!

Waiting for our friends…

Simon and I enjoyed going through the barns and the craft building. I was really impressed by this tiny knit sweater, with cables and all. The tiny buttons!

The big kids rode the “Sinbad” and had a blast. One of Isaac’s first real carnival rides and he didn’t look ill when it was over;)
