matchy matchy...

If you know me well, you know I am not so much the matchy sort. If I had twins, they would probably NEVER wear the same outfit at the same time. I wonder what that says about me?

But anyway...Steve has been wanting me to knit him a hat with vertical stripes. I didn't think it was possible (because I didn't know how to do it), but as it turns out it's very possible. I found a pattern and he picked out the colors. Unfortunately the first one was a tad small and it also had a few minor mistakes in the pattern that I didn't notice until it was too late. So, of course I had to make another one that was perfect. Plus I had enough yarn left over. So I whipped up another slightly larger version for Steve (actually I didn't whip it up...more like I slaved over it). And now Steve and Jackson are all matchy matchy. So cute! (and a little cheesy).

isn't he beautiful? especially when you can see his poop-colored eyes? now let's work on the smile...

Car Conversations

Jackson: Are there robbers by our house Mom?

Me: Um...I haven't heard about any robbers around here. Why, are you worried about that?

J: Yeah.

M: What are you worried about?

J: I don't want robbers to come in and steal my money.

M: Well, a lot of times robbers like to go to big huge houses where people have lots of money.

J: But Mom, I have two piggy banks.
