New Baby's Blanket

I finished a blanket for the new baby.  I had to make one for this baby, since I did one for Lizzy and Rachel when I was pregnant with them.  This one is crocheted, and it didn't take very long to do.


The kids woke up last week and saw that it had snowed overnight!  They were so excited, we just had to take them sledding at the park near our house!  They had a fantastic time!

Cute Hair and Valentines

I've been having fun being able to do matching hair-dos on the girls!  While doing this hairdo on Lizzy, it was pulling, and she said, "Beauty is pain!" Jason overheard, and it cracked him up!

And, for Valentine's Day, I made these cute chocolate hazelnut truffle flowers - idea from Martha Stewart!  I made the flowers out of construction paper hearts, and then I made the truffles, and stuck it all onto skewers.  Turned out pretty cute, but it was rather time-consuming!

Cute Skirts!

The fabric store by Lizzy's ballet studio was having a 40-50% off fabric sale, so I got some fabric and made some cute skirts for the girls!

This is a really easy no-pattern skirt to make.  I made them skirts using this method before, and they loved those, so they are really thrilled with these new ones!
