Happy Birthday Cassie!!

The other day, while I was doing things around the house, I noticed that Ella was really quiet. This is usually a bad sign. Ella likes to be sneaky and she is really good at it. So I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into her room and saw this:

She was reading. How great is that? She loves to read and I am so glad that at least something I do well, rubs off on her.

Cassie turned 23 this month and I made her a scarf and a hat. I had to wait till she opened her present before I could post these pictures. I didn't want to give up this hat I made. I am so proud of it. Good thing is I have the pattern and can make another one. Plus there just isn't the need for a hat like that in Texas.

Ella is such a great model. I love it!!

Ella and Ty love playing with each other these days. It has been so much fun for me to watch. And they keep each other occupied, doesn't get much better than that at this stage in life. This video is them playing together. No one can make Ty laugh like this. It is a talent only Ella posses apparently.

Your kids are so cute and growing up so quickly!
I love your hat and scarf. You do such a wonderful job. I've been crocheting for years, but haven't taken the time to move beyond simple washcloths and baby blankets or afghans. I need some lessons!

I MISS YOU! I hope things are going great out there. Your kids are too cute. If you are looking for an excuse to make more hats and scarves, you could always make one for me! :)

The hat and scarf are awesome... I am so impressed. I knit and crochet a little but I never have patience for really cute projects. Kudos to you!

And isn't it the most wonderful thing when your kids play together? They are adorable. Can't wait to see you guys again.
