I made my first baby blanket the other day! It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. The most difficult part was picking the fabric to use. I usually have an image in my head of how I want the finished product to look, but finding the fabric that goes along with that image is often impossible. This blanket was for my friend Natalie who is expecting her second daughter in June. I love the colors even though they don't look like "baby" colors. I really wanted to keep this blanket for myself. I think I will be making more of these very soon.
On Sundays during Church Ella usually writes or draws in a little notebook that I keep in my purse. She is typically very quiet. Today was no different until she showed me this...
I couldn't stop laughing. Ken started laughing. The people sitting behind us and next to us all saw it and started laughing as well. I hope that we weren't as loud as I think we were. (It says stinky feet, in case you can't decipher kindergarten "best guess spelling").
This afternoon Ella planted some sunflower seeds that we picked up from the $1 bin at Target. My sister bought these a few weeks ago and hers are growing like weeds (but lets hope they aren't weeds, it was the $1 bin after all)
Here they are all planted and ready to grow. Now we just need to remember to water them.
