Well I found a will model for my wrist warmers, twin dd E ~
They fit her good, I think I will use bigger needles to make adult sizes

I taught myself how to knit in the round using 4 double pointed needles, and I LOVE it!
Another look at the finished wrist warmer (second one almost done - tonight I think). I will get a model to show them off and post a pic. The pink yarn is for a shrug I am working on also. Think mini sweater with just the sleeves : )

B not having an easy time working the screw driver
Dad with his little helper, E loves power tools : )
The girls are exhausted, but happy ( so are twin sons toes on the ladder) : )
And here is what the dogs were doing while the rest of us toiled (other dog went to work with son and who knows where the cats got to).
So it's a done deal, my babies are now officially in reg. beds. That night as I lay in bed and mulled it over, the passing of time, it was a bit sad. I guess I could write an entire blog on feeling old, watching the kids grow, being worried that I can't remember all the stuff they did as babies . . . But I am choosing to move forward and just try to live each day for it's own joy and remember at night when I go to bed, to give all the glory to God.

Just thought I would pop in with a couple updates. Yesterday I drove with big son, might not ever happen again! My shoulder is bruised from my seat belt and all his sudden 'stops' ~ ugh. The kid needs practice. I am so glad the number of required driving hours increased before teenagers get their licences.
I am also currently trying to talk big son into trying the chiropractor and or acupuncture for his Fibro. The meds. the neurologist gave him are not helping and he still has a couple weeks before his next appt. I have read that acupuncture has had good results in Fibro people. I just get so concerned for Z. He worked Mon. and Tue. and was sooooooo sick Wed. (this is typical). He was so weak that he had a hard time getting out of bed and walking. At one point his feet shot out from under him and he fell and hit his head. He said that didn't help his 15 month migraine one bit! : P
I finished yet another knitted scarf, part of my stock pile for selling at craft shows/fairs. I am hoping to have quiet a little stash by the time all the Christmas shows start. I thought this was like a rock start scarf, the older kids said it reminded them of Halloween because of the colors I chose.
It has a two tone rust color and black fringe
Next I am finishing up a Christmas bib for the new baby and starting some wrist warmers (the new rage) knitted in the round on 4 double pointed needles. It is dicey to say the least, hope I get use to it. I picked up a cool free pattern at Hobby Lobby today, for knitted camo cargo pants. They had Bre written all over them. They will make great jammy pants : )

This is the outdoor candle/wind chime thingy hubby bought me. I think I am going to buy some of those flame less tea candles to use in them so they won't be a fire hazard to our home : )
I got my seed starters going today: first off are all my squash and gourds. Next batch will be pumpkins.

MeMe Monday - Movies
Last film you bought. I know this is repetitive but for me or the kids? LOL For me, The Outsiders. What can I say, a trip down memory lane. My middle dd loved it and ended up reading all of S. E. Hinton's books! Oh, but she jacked that movie from me : (

Not to change the subject, but it will. Here is a pic of a baby blanket I just finished knitting. Not sure for who yet, as dd has no idea what the baby is yet and that is fine. Maybe I will make one in pinks too and send both? Not sure this is my favorite pattern, so next one will more than likely by slightly different.
Blessings, Beth Ann

Well we went to put a bid on the farm, and someone already beat us to it. Now we are waiting to see if their contract is accepted or not, could be a few days. Will keep you posted.
Not much else happening. DH had to replace my starter last night, in my Durango. So that is delaying our starter plants one more day, but I did remember to pick up the potting soil! Now if I could remember to mix the mulch up . . . I am going with dried coconut shell this year, and has to be moistened in a 5 gallon (comes in compressed bricks) bucket and then spread. I also picked up some seaweed fertilizer as well. So hoping for good things this year. Now wondering if I have room to add some butter lettuce and sweet potatoes?
Here is a random pet pic to keep you entertained:
This is Zoey, she is Z's dog and this is how she sleeps all the time, well maybe not with twin ds blanket, but you get the idea. She snoars like a bulldozer too!
