Family Fun!

This past weekend was a special one because all three of our adult children were in Seattle, and that is a rare occurrence.  Jill was here from Chicago and spent the majority of her time getting acquainted with Stella and Max.




Mommy Jill left these three behind, but it looks like they had fun anyhow with the big-leaf maple leaves we sent from Seattle. Can you believe those dry leaves survived the mailing?


As always, Max and I had to catch up on our reading. He loves books, any and all!




He was also quite pleased with his new mittens until he realized it's hard to build anything while wearing them.



In the midst of it all, I managed to finish this hat. Check off one Christmas project! Yay!



And now the challenge is,  as this weekend approaches, to find something to do that will top the past one! Any ideas?

Cute pictures! I love that hat, adorable! One of our favorite books (The Big Red Barn) it was fun digging it out of the attic for the new grandbaby here!

Such cute little ones, and you make the cutest little knitted things for them! I've got a couple new babies on the way and you inspire me to get a little experimental in making some fun things for them :)
