Ethan was so sweet to pose for his Aunt Kristie in a couple hats I am selling in my shop. I knew they would look better on a little boy then they would just laying flat. He is such a fun little guy and growing up so fast. I love that Karina will have a big boy cousin to look after her since she doesn't have an older brother. She could always end up with a younger but bigger brother like I have in my man Dan, but we'll see. And no I am not pregnant yet. :) Anyway just had to share these pics being that they are oh so cute and I don't think it hurts anything to do a little advertising for my shop on my blog either. Hehe. I am currently knitting a little sweater for Karina that is almost done so I will be a bit before I put anything else up for sale just yet, but you will know. :)
How cute are these two just playing so sweetly together. I know they are going to be great little friends already! I kept sweet little Caroline the other day for Emily and she was just that, sweet! They really did have a great time together. And Karina was even doing so well with sharing. Makes me look foward to having another child knowing that she was so willing to hand Caroline more toys to play with instead of taking everything away. I am so grateful that our family lives in the same town and that our kids can grow up with each other!! Praise the Lord!

Here are some new sweet little hats I just put up in my shop. Karina was oh so sweet to pose for mommy so that I can advertise. Please know that I will give discounts to friends and family if you all see something you are interested in. Just let me know. Also feel free to put a link to my shop page if you would like on your personal blogs or web pages. I am hoping to get some more things up there soon for sale. I just made a couple really cute little boy hats that will go on there today. So keep a look out!!

This is the wreath hanging on my front door that I will confess has been there for a couple weeks now even though it is not officially fall. I got the itch to decorate for autumn about the beginning of September. I think there might have been a day in there somewhere when the air was a little cooler then it's been. And I wanted to see some lovely fall leaves and light a spice candle or two. :)
One of my fall arrangements in my house that remind me the cool weather is not far away!
Doesn't this basket of hats and yarn just scream cozy to you!! I could eat it up if it were food. The yarn in the front of the hats is some I am going to use to knit Karina a little sweater with soon. I am hoping to start on it tonight. I bought it a long time ago and made a wonderful warm and cozy blanket with it, then a scarf when I realized how warm and cozy it was all knitted up. I love the colors too. It is a wool yarn and that makes it nice and toasty. I think I will make a little sleeveless sweater that she can wear with a longsleave shirt, maybe some stripes, maybe some ribbing. We'll see. Can you tell I make it up as I go. Hehe.
Oh and yes I am one of those silly people that likes to change their bedding with the seasons. During the Spring and Summer months I have a navy blue cover that goes over this comforter. It looks very cool and nautical to me. But when the fall and winter come around and I want something that brightens up the room and warms me just by looking at it some change is a must. And so the cover comes off and the flowers are out along with the cozy knitted pillows and chocolate colored fuax suade shams behind them. So just thought I'd give you all a peak into my little world and now I think I will cuddle up in that warm bed and shut my eyes for a bit while my sweet little girl is doing the same in her cozy little bed. Sweet dreams everyone!

I've been tagged to play the middle name game. First, the rules:You have to post these rules on your blog. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you do not have a middle name, choose one you would like to have. When tagged, write your own blog post containing your middle name facts. At the end, choose one person to tag for each letter of your middle name. Then leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged.
M- meaningful- I believe that Jesus Christ came to this earth and lived a perfect life and
died for my sins and that brings meaning to my life!
A-awe- I am in awe at the many blessings the Lord has bestowed upon me in my family and friends.
R-routine- I like to have one even if I stray from it now and then. :)
I-imagine- I love to imagine all the fun crafts I could make if I had hours and hours on my hands.
E-exercise- I really enjoy exercising as long as I can push myself out the door. hehe. Whether it's walking, swimming, hiking, biking, kayaking I love all of them!
I don't know any other bloggers that will do this so you will just have to keep it going! :)

Karina wanted to be with me as I cleaned the kitchen today. I was really lazy today but I did clean my kitchen! It was just one of those days of waking up to a cloudy sky and then lots of rain, which I love, that made me in that cuddly, cozy, not wanting to leave the house kind of mood. So, I didn't! But back to Karina. She is wanting to imitate more and more it seems the things that Jeff and I do around the house. So today it was cooking 101. And even though I wasn't cooking at the moment she knows that the kitchen is where all the yummy food is. And so in an effort to keep her amused while I put dishes away she learned how to make spaghetti, haha. First you have to get your utensils. Then you throw the noodles in, hers were these fun play straws. And of course don't forget to taste the sauce once you mix it all together.
