Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along: First Easter Sweater :: 

This week I finished a sweater that I started awhile back but got lost in the move. I found it again recently and decided to finish up for my oldest gal. It is the perfect sweater for Easter. Now we just have to start looking for a dress. I used to buy the girls each a dress from Strasburg Children Clothing store but they have gone out of business. Any Suggestions? 

The pink yarn above it is what our 2 year old has picked for her sweater. We are calling it electric pink! 

On my bedside table, I have a stack of books. I am reading: 

Simplifying the Soul - Paula Houston 

How to Know the Wild flowers: A Guide to the Names, Haunts, and Habits of Common Wild flowers - Mrs. William Dana Starr

The House Girl- Tara Conklin

The Knitter's Book of Wool - Clara Parkes 

And one last picture of some baby knits as we get ready for our little guy's arrival...

The Final Days

:: The Final Days ::

We are enjoying our final days as a family of four before our little guy makes his big debut. I haven't been around the blogging world lately because I used any free time to rest. My due date has come and gone and I am still pregnant. ( We all know babies aren't keen on arriving on a schedule but have their own plans) I have been trying to stay patient and peaceful as the anticipation builds as labor approaches. I will be induced later this week, it is not my first choice and I have been through it twice before. I know in my heart it is for the best and I will happily give up the tremendous hip and back pain I have been enduring the last couple weeks. 

In the meantime, the girls and I have been taking it easy and enjoying these quiet days together. Reading, snuggling, playing, last minute organizing, and of course naps!  

We read some books about the Ocean and creatures in the sea....

We just enjoyed our fourth or fifth snowstorm of the winter season
