National Doughnut Day

Friday was national Doughnut day and ever since I read this post last year I have wanted to do something fun with the kids. After picking up the kids I took them to Krispy Kreme for free doughnuts. The we ran by the craft store and picked up supplies to make felt doughnuts. The kids seemed to have a good time and it kept them entertained.

Dad's baptism

My dad got baptised a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough to be able to go with the kids. I love this shot of Alex. He is watching the older boys play in the pool after the baptism. You can just see the longing to be in there with the boys.

Abbie's 1st haircut

A few weeks ago Alex was on a boys only trip with his dad so I felt it was the perfect time for mom/daughter haircuts. Abbie just got a little trim and then Laurie was nice enough to style her hair too. I on the other hand got my hair chopped off and left a big pile on the floor.

I've been knitting

I have recently been knitting dishcloths as an easy take along handwork project. Most of them are pretty simple but I decided to make a transformers washcloth for Alex. While this washcloth was not technically difficult to make it was hard to keep track of the stitch count and I don't know if I will be willing to make another one of these.

Pattern here

Line 25 is incorrect in the original pattern. Here is the correction.
