Upside-Down Daisy Hat

Newborn size.

Lilly's 4th Birthay Party

It's a Snow White kind of thing.
We had fun at Idylwood park with 7 of Lilly's friends.
The weather was perfect.
I made this costume, Lilly you are really spoiled!

Cupcake Cake turned out really great (and easy to make too!)

Pretty as a princess

Diligent preparation for our game "pin the princess on the castle balcony".
Blind-folded of course!
Thanks to Rylan and his skills with drawing, Lilly had a beautiful
poster of a castle.
Ooooh, Ahhhh! Presents.

All smiles from the cake eaters!

Anisten is sleeping in her own toddler bed. Today for nap she played for at least an hour before falling asleep on a bunch of toys she stacked in her bed.

Rylan's been trecking around the woods with the boyscouts. He thinks that being prepared means bring every item you own. His poor back!

I've been knitting up a storm. Here is the latest modeled by Anisten.

Lilly can almost swim on her own. She has been taking swim lessons, and is very comfortable in the water.
