Roughly Around the Time of Greta's 2nd Birthday...



I didn't mean to post this blurry one...


This rug has a nice story behind it that has to do with Greta running to it screeching joyfully, pulling it off the shelf at Target and into the aisle where she rolled around on it and wouldn't get off for a good ten minutes or so. She was absolutely in love. So when it showed up in our living room on the morning of her birthday, you can imagine her surprise and delight!


Have I ever posted pictures of Greta's little sweater? I can't remember. Anyway, this is it... it rolls badly so you can't see the purple stripe along the edging, but that's okay. It's warm and cozy.
We've been up here at Ooma and Oompa's house all day! It's fifty-something degrees outside, so the girls played in the newly filled sandbox and I sewed the buttons on the Springtime Garden Sweater, which is what Anja's wearing in the first picture up at the top there. I think I like the finished product! I knit it in some fun nubbly cotton (Mission Falls) that my mother-in-law picked up at the Trinity Mission for 50 cents a ball! Nice.

Oh they don't just wear over them... they fight over them!

Annie! You know, I miss you! I cannot believe Greta is 2!!! She looks so much older compared to the last time I saw your blog... months ago!!! Anyway, we are planning on being in the area sometime this summer! Margaret would love to play with your kids!
Triduum Blessings,
