Family Time at Jace's School

Yesterday we went to Jace's classroom for 15 minutes of Family Time.
The kids asked questions and we showed them
pictures of our family.
Mallory and I made this mitten garland as a gift for the class.

the pictures aren't to whoopy but there are mittens,
 beads, felt circles and snowballs that spell out winter.

We also made some mini pumpkin muffins for the class,
but they had to wait until snack time to eat them :(
Mallory and Ezie were counting on having one!
Oh well, I made some for them for after school :)

Thanks Jace for bringing us to school to share things about our family!

Stop the Clock!

 I need some more time before Christmas to finish all of my projects.
  So let's just stop the clock and give me an extra day or two
 so I can finish without being totally stressed. 

Sound good to you?

Now to get busy!

Pretty Prim Dresses

Since my girls don't wear dresses anymore
and these are really easy
I made some
dresses to hang in a room or use as an ornament.
They are about 6 or so inches tall.

This dress I crocheted a color and cuffs onto the dress and then crocheted a little hand muff. 
 It has beads for buttons and the hanger is a cinnamon stick with a piece of jute tied to it.
I also grunged the dress with a mixture of coffee and spices.
I think it's so cute and it smells yummy too!

This dress a gathered the ends of the sleeves, crocheted a collar and grunged it.
Simple but sweet!

On this dress I added some lace and a ribbon and grunged her up good.

I have some more I made that I added bloomers to.
I had fun making these.
I could just be creative and have fun with them.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my little grungy prim dresses!

I Look Mad Cool Today!

"I Look MAD Cool today!"

That's what my Jace said after we fixed his hair.
He's been practicing with water on getting this look
and so this morning we put gel in it and I helped him spike it
and now he looks mad cool!

He also has his KU Sweatshirt,
his favorite jeans and shoes on so that really made the look.

I love having such a happy guy!

of course....

I don't think he was looking mad cool for me,
but for
his love.....

Oh boy,
I'm not ready for this yet!!

Slow down Jace!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
