I just finished these longies for Little Miss Raya Sunshine! Blue is my favorite color, so when I see blue little girl clothes, I have a hard time resisting them so when I got this blue wool, I knew exactly what it would be for! I haven't done the icord (Tie) (Planning on doing it in the white) and they're a little long.. I'm hoping to wait to have her wear them until she starts walking so they stay a little nicer than the ones she crawls all over in!
This is Ella, she's our new "puppy". (She's about 3) We just brought her home a few weeks ago.. She's adjusted to life here pretty well and she seems to really like the kids. She loves to play ball and dig holes.
We had a very fun halloween. This was our first year to go trick-or-treating in the small little town we live in, even though we've lived here 3+ years. They do small-town style here and it's great. All the businesses do trick-or-treating in the afternoon so we went... and then we went door-to-door in the evening too. Everybody's so friendly and the older folks loved seeing the kids.. it seems like they get just as much or a bigger blast out of it as the kids! Jessi was a little shy at first and didn't want to say anything, let alone "Trick or treat" but after a few houses she was tearing up to the door, ringing doorbells and shouting "TRICK OR TREAT!" when people opened the door. A few pictures from that afternoon: My dragon and ladybug. (minus the wings.. they were pretty big!) My witch and one of her best friends, the spider. Such an adorable witch. She was pretty sure she wanted to be a mean witch, but how can this face look mean? The meanest witch face she could muster up. Here with her other best friend, the cheeta. The group of kids we were trick-or-treating with.
Time to go home! Oh, and much to our disappointment, Wade & I didn't dress up. Maybe next year, we both love to... we just didn't have time to find a costume or two.
I finally got Raya's Husker longies done!! They're the first pair of longies (besides one doll pair) that I've made. They took forever because I ran out of yarn and the co-op I ordered more from took forever. So, halfway into football season and they're finally done. ;)
She thinks she's pretty smart for pulling herself up on things now.
