Happy 4th Birthday Owen!!
My grandson Owen is so cute and expressive in his facial gestures.
Mallory picked out a crocheted monkey for me to make for his birthday.
I haven't posted for awhile so you won't know this,
I don't really believe in New Years Resolutions,
but I went on and made one this year.
I would make and have them done on time,
homemade gifts for each of my 14 grandkids birthdays this year.
I've got 4 down and 10 more to go for the year.
Here's what I made for Owen
A Monkey for A Little Monkey!
I bought the pattern on Etsy from Luvly-Gurumi's shop.
The pattern was easy to make and great instructions.
I also made Owen a little car case.
I updated this version with 2 roads.
I learned a few things from making the first one and so this one was a little easier to make.
and now here's Owen
Happy Birthday Owen!
....and Catch Up!
In January we had 3 grandkids with birthdays.
The second set of twins, Leigha and Liam turned 5.
I had fun with Liam's toy. Making it and playing with it in the process.
So first is Leigha's cupcakes. I crocheted her a set of 6 yummy cupcakes.
I just went with the flow and designed my own cupcakes.
I think they turned out pretty darn cute!
and a cupcake purse for Leigha's goodies.
and the Birthday girl.
and now for Liam's alligator.
My grandma had made my older kids some animals when they were little
and I found the pamphlet on Etsy. It is an Aunt Lydia's pamphlet.
The alligator is pretty much completely made of granny squares
....which I altered a little bit to my liking.
and here's Liam with his brother Austin playing with his alligator.
Next we had Chad, Jr.s birthday.
Chad also turned 6 this year.
I made Chad a Minion and a little evil minion.
I bought the pattern from Aradiya Toys on Etsy.
The evil minion I used part of her pattern and my own thing for part of it.
and here's Chad, Jr.
Finally, I can't leave out my Jace who also had a birthday in January.
Jace turned 9 and he is a Pokémon Trainer now.
So I crocheted him so Pokémon Balls by just playing around
and looking at pictures of the balls online.
and Jace opening a gift.
I hope all the grandkids enjoy their gifts from Nana
and Jace from his Mama.
