I delivered the new hat today and was met by a very happy little guy who likes his new snowgear. And I am glad.

This is the snowflake detail that I added to make it 'wintery'. I love the border/accent yarn color-it's called ocean breeze and is a light teal. Very pretty.
If I have a few extra hours, I want to make a matching hat. We'll see! I seem to come up with a 'must do' project every fifteen minutes :)

I made this for a Christmas ornament swap. My swap partner Megan said she looked thru my projects and liked everything I had made, so I decided to go gnome. Go big or go gnome. HA! I crack myself up. He is probably too big to put on the tree, but could be cute way back in there peeking out thru the branches.

This is the sight around my house this week. Lots and lots of legos. Indy Jones legos (2 sets) and the coup de grace, scored by moi, Speed Racer legos. Not because they are rare, but because Evan didn't know they existed. And Speed is a big thing in our house.
We also have virtual legos in the form of the Indiana Jones lego video game for Wii. Good fun for 9 year old boys.
It's been a crummy week and I've been out of sorts the whole time. Yicky, rainy cold weather for the last few days, making the days seem even shorter because of the gloom. Half days & teacher conferences. Poor sleeping habits. Feeling crampy & headachy from all of the above. Time to banish the blahs and get back on track!
Have a good weekend. Don't know what's in store for us quite yet. Oh boy!

Thank you to my models, watermelon & old soccer ball. They were just the right size for stretching and blocking the wet hats!

Ev had his first indoor soccer game last night and the kid was on fire, I kid you not! He played goalie for the first half plus some (Indoor boardless they play 55 minutes straight. No halftime, no stopping the clock) The moms were saying that we should get him a box of kitty litter (!) because he has cat like reflexes :) He was totally awesome and not at all rusty for not having played in weeks. Good stuff.

and check out these really nce pix Bart took the other day. I love the seond one the most...the colors & textures. Wonderful! The light really was amazing. Not retouched at all, pinky swear!
Hard to believe from these shots that it's November. And that it's about to get cold, fast.

Emma 'strangling' Aunt Roberta with her glowing nails. I love this picture even though it's blurry.
My Spartan pumpkin...GO STATE!
our other pumpkin. They traveled to my Dad's house for trick-or-treating.
The hippie is ready to rock-n-roll.
Em & Ev waiting for the witching hour.
Face make-up is itchy!
Geisha girl Emma
checking out her 'do in the mirror. It took almost an entire can of spray to cover all the blond.
Evan in the school parade.
peace and love, baby. The moustache was totally the best part of the costume.
Probably my favorite picture, from the crooked moustache to the laid back look he's workin'.
