My laundry room....

I walked down the hall and saw this...the boys playing in the HUGE heap of laundry I let pile up. Why, oh why do I do this to myself? I think it's important to get pictures like's real life. Messy. Fun.

The cutest mushrooms I've ever seen...

Aren't these the cutest mushrooms? Sharon, who is in our Knitting Club, made this as a birthday present for my Mom. She is amazing. Can you tell she's a Master Gardener? I love the turtle and lady bug too. The bark and such is from her yard. Kathryn Ivy designed the patterns (her site is great!) and they are featured on The Purl Bee. Gotta love that blog.

Go Gophers!

I had a request for a U of MN hat recently. I wanted to do something besides maroon and gold so I chose gray. I found the patch on Ebay.

All the boys in my house are watching the Gophers play Texas right now. Anthony just snuck in my craft room to offer me a beer and popcorn. How great is that?!? I love how they are bonding over U of MN basketball. Really, it's a great continuation of our story since that's where we met the first night I set foot on the campus. I held back from being even more cheesy just then. :)

A Mess...

My Mom and Stepdad are back from MX so my Mom came up for a minute today. She didn't latch the gate behind her (we thought Fin was pretty much past the that stage). She saw it first and told me to bring my camera. I saw he and the basketball first. Then the mess came into focus....
My Mom takes such good care of her plants. The one the basketball hit was a gift from me years and years ago. We picked this spot since it's out of the way. :/

With the weather we are having it's hard to believe Easter is coming up. The wind is even hurts to take a breath out there. My parents are flying home tonight from Mexico after 2 months away. Nothing like below zero temps to shake you back into reality.

Last year Mandy took the pics of the babies. I had to post them again since they are right up there with my favorites.

I'm shipping out the hat on the stand tomorrow. I love Etsy! It's such a great outlet for homemade items. I like browsing all the handmade clothing. It would be great to see one of the budding designers on Project Runway someday. Check out one of my favorite Etsy designers.

Brekka snoozin'

I had to share another of Brekka. Her Daddy snapped this photo and sent it to me. I love those wrinkles on her back! They're so smooshy when they're new...priceless.

Another button hat...

Here's another idea for a hat that was triggered by Mandy's sweater sleeve. I like how simple it is.
