My latest project

I found the link on Drea's blog a while back for making your own baby leg warmers (like Babylegs).  I have received one really pretty pair of Babylegs as a gift, and I love them!  I would love to have a pair in every colour!  So, I decided to try and make some.  I finally found some knee high socks at WalMart the other day, so I pulled out my Mom's sewing machine and tried my hand at this new project.  The first pair have a little issue, because the phone rang in the middle of me trying to figure something out, so I sewed it together wrong.  I still need to rip out the stiches and try again.  The other two pairs though look great !  I love the polkadots!

This morning I found Rowan sitting in the living room 'reading' a book called 'The Heavenly Man'.  It's the story of a missionary.  Anyway, it is not a children's book and has no pictures, yet he often asks me to read it to him!  Strange how he seems to enjoy it.

This morning Keith was also home for a bit (he is right now, which is why I am quickly posting!).  I kind of like it when he's in and out, or just pops in to drop something off!  I tend to really miss him during the day.  He's so good at helping me with the kids when he is home too.  Yesterday I actually washed my dishes right after supper!!  That's pretty rare around here.

Just a reminder to those of you who haven't signed up to go to the Blogger Brunch yet.  Make sure you don't forget!  Email to reserve your spot.  I can't wait to meet you all!

I'm so curious as to what Rowan will be like when he's older. Musician? Athlete? Missionary? Loud? Quiet? He's such a unique favorite nephew, actually!
Love ya,
