Here are a few good quotes from this past year.

"Mom, this is so tasty!" - Lars

"And they lived funly ever after." - Heidi

"I love you." -Molly
"I love you too." - H
"Do you want to get married?" -M
"I will if you be nice." -H
" I will, I'll even share my lion with you."- M
I'm not sure what they were playing with for that one but I'm pretty sure they were in some sort of character.

This week we had a Christmas party. We did a white elephant for one of the activity's.
I had a pattern for the basic shape of the aprons. But you could just measure yourself to make a custom apron.
To make the aprons I cut out 2 apron shaped pieces of fabric. Then I cute out 2 straps of over 60" long and 2" wide and 2 straps about 4" long and 2" wide. I ironed all the straps so all the raw edges were turned in and sewed them closed. I attached the long straps to the top and the short ones I folded to make a loop and attached them at the side waist. Them I sewed the two apron pieces right side together with the straps on the inside. I sew the top and side of the apron then turn it right side out and top stitch the bottom closed. tada. if you want you could add pockets at this time.
I also made matching pot holders for the white elephant gift. It was a fun project to put together and it only took a few hours.

December iris

I transplanted this iris the end of August. Then for some happy reason it decided to bloom this fall in its new home.
It is a little patch of sunshine under my kitchen window.
I am thankful for all my pretty flowers!
