Christmas Time

Cy has really started to draw everything. Up until this point he usually only colored pictures but now he is drawing from his imagination. Here are a few rainbows that he made, i will have the finished pic later cause they are great! He has also learned to sharpen his own pencil crayons so for a few days that is all he did!

Made cookies last night. The boys decided that....
Cookies rule!
That's RULE people!!
Went to a friend's house yesterday and the kids decorated a ginger bread house...

Poor Josh almost fell asleep...

What do I do with this?
Put it here... now picture this cutie has a british accent :)

Just a cutie...

No time to Knit

My exam is on Friday so I am cramming like crazy! It's been a long time since I have an exam to do. If you count my CPR exam its about 6 months, if you don't.... over 10 years since high school.

My poor sick boys, this was pretty much all they did for the last few days. Today has been the first in a few days that we have gotten outside..... no thanks to the 45km/ hr winds! Just a bit of snow play in the yard out of the wind. Plus they are running around the house like crazy, it's all back to normal. I would be lying if I said I did not enjoy the more mellow house.

I am knitting a ridiculously long garland for the christmas tree, the tutorial can be found HERE
I have so much yarn leftover from other projects so this is a perfect way to use up the stash.

Thanks again Cecelia for these cookies, they are all eaten already!
The boys are sick today, same as they were yesterday. They both have fevers and no energy. Another calm day with lots of liquids and christmas movies = crafting for mama.
