Sorry.. been a bit.. been busy!

So, yes, we have been a little busy. We had Grandma and Auntie W. come for a visit. Grandpa was working out of town for a week! Gwyn got the bed that Grandpa made for her!! I can not tell you how fantabulous it is and how much I love it. I will try to get better pics of it but the room is so small it makes it a real challenge!!! Might just have to take pics of the whole room... OMG it's a mess!! but, will see what happens. After Grandma and Auntie were here we went to the city to return them as cousin R. was having a birthday!! So we returned our guests and went to a birthday party. Did some grocery shopping and came home. 

Grandma had hoped that while she was here the weather would be decent to play outside. It was not! Bloody cold it was! We went nowhere!! Grandma and Gwyn played a lot of playdoh. But grandma had brought along a shovel sled. So, when we got home the weather was much better so I gave her the shovel for grandma and outside we went! She had fun but liked to use the sled as a shovel more than the sled/toboggan. LOL I got some knitting done too! 

So, enjoy the pics.

Baby, skull cap. (made to match the daddy to be's, that I made him for Christmas)

My cousin's mittens. Made for the Pay it forward I did on Facebook
Baby booties. Made for my friends who are expecting a little boy in March! (same people as the skull cap)

I totally spend too much time in the van. These are what I have whipped up when I am a passenger or when I am visiting in the city. One has a definate home...the rest not so sure just yet.

Gwyn made a play doh birthday cake. Pretty good, no?

Climbing to slide down

Quick ride!

Scoop, scoop.

Gwyn's printing. I am the teal/green, Gwyn is the brown... LOL I think she did good with her A's. And if I didn't wonder better, I would wonder if she didn't know more than I thought. As 1st line looks like "had", second "BAHAA" and third like the A's they are supposed to be... hmmm.... makes ya wonder!
Anyways, that's it for this photo rich post! Hope you enjoy catching up!  :) TTYL

FO's - Finished Objects..... not flying ones.. LOL

Well. Hmm. They look very green/teal here. and it looks like a giant lump of too much of one colour. But I assure you in person.. and on a person.. they will be absolutely lovely. And yes.. that person should be here in a couple hours! Yay! Maybe... if I ask super sweetly she will let me take a pic of her in them.. as I think they will be gorgeous on her!!! but that is it for now.. Shroom hat, Knitting at larges mittens and my own scarf(if there is such a thing). I just hope she likes them and wears them a tonne!!

On another front. Went for a playdate today. Darn was it nice to sit and visit and have tea with another Momma while the girls played and ran their hearts out!! Was wonderful company!! Miss G took a great pic of her friend...
And miss G was very tired.. we came home. Watched some Kipper. Ate some noodle. And then she grabbed my phone and was playing a game on it in the chair while I changed a load of laundry. When I came back. This is what I found!!!
She was done. Took her to bed. Changed her bottom, and she did not wake. I guess she will be super surprised tomorrow when aunti and grammy are here.. ROTFLMAO that is I suppose if she doesn't wake up when they come in!!! (she is in bed!! LOL)

Pay it forward.

Well, on Facebook right now there is a pay if forward post going around. At first I thought, "for cripes sake, don't we just live by this? If someone needs a hand we offer it if we have anything to offer, and in turn we hope that others do the same for us when we fall into the need." Then I thought... maybe it isn't about need in this case. and would it not be GREAT FUN!!!!????!!!!  LOL so, short of you living some crazy place that I can not afford to ship something home made to.... well.. a Gwyn drawiing is home made right? It is. Just not by me.. hmmm.... well.. there ya go... might be as simple as that. But here it is. And yes. I am incredibly brave or stupid, or just having plain ole fun...

Pay It Forward 2012 ... I promise to make something homemade/handmade for the first 5 people who comment on my post. You must then re-post this on your status and make something for the first 5 people who comment on your status. *The rules are it HAS to be handmade by YOU and they must receive it before 2012 ends.

 Now here is the thing... I need some comments of course.. but also your addy's which I will gladly email you for should I be able.... And.. ya never know.. depending on the comments I get... might do more than 5 so... Let us have some fun eh?!?
