It's going to be COLD this weekend!

These pictures are from my birthday weekend - January 22. We got some ice and a little snow. Unfortunately, our electricity went out also. Not a great way to spend a birthday weekend. Since we had no electricity or heat we headed to my sister's house for the day. I guess that was God's way of saying we needed some sister time.

This weekend is Valentines Day and Elijah's birthday. He's our Valentine baby. Not sure what we have planned since its going to be so cold. But I'm seeing lot's of hearts! Maybe heart pancakes, some heart cookies dipped in chocolate(I think that's more for me). And knitting of course. I guess whatever we can come up with we'll do since we will be inside.

So love, birthday, hearts, baking, and knitting - on the agenda for this weekend!

Here's to the weekend!

Wild Thing!

I've decided to make a gang of Wild Things for my grandbabies. Well, a gang of four. One down - three more to go. Along with the wild things for each of them, I'm sending Where the Wild Things Are book. I'm hoping they will enjoy the story and love having a Wild Thing of their own.

I've been thinking of other toys I can knit to go along with children's books. Right now I have 2 on the list.  Birthdays this year, each grandbaby will receive a knit toy and story book to go along with it. At least that's the plan.

For now, I have 3 more Wild Things to knit. I'm hoping to have them done and sent off to my babies for Valentines day. The pattern is fairly easy, just fiddly with all the little parts. But the outcome is just so cute!

A fire is always going in the fireplace, layers are worn and plenty of quilts and blankets are tossed about waiting to be cuddled under.

We have the prediction of snow this weekend. I think last year on my birthday we had a little snow. My birthday is Friday, so maybe I will get snow again. I say if it's going to be this cold, it might as well snow!

Let is snow!
