More Pics

Well, we are settling into the new house. But I have lost the charger for the battery for my camera. Hopefully I will find it soon!! So here are a couple of pictures we took with photobooth on the computer.

Apple Picking

We went apple picking--my sister and her four boys were here last weekend. It was so much fun! Here is my sister with her gang.

More Books

Here are some books we have been reading lately. These are the best children's book I have read in a long time!

This Little Chick by John Lawrence (2002)

I Can Fly by Ruth Krauss (1951)

A Very Special House by Ruth Krauss -- pictures by Maurice Sendak (1953)

A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson (1993)

I highly recommend all of them!

More Matching Outfits

I decided that baby could match me. I made myself a dress the other day and then had some left over fabric so I made Amund some pants. I think they turned out really cute. The top fabric is off white very thin and kind of stretchy corduroy that I have had forever (used some of it to make monkey overall shorts for Islwyn when he was little). On a side note, little sweater he is wearing I knitted for Islwyn when Islwyn was a little baby. So glad we can continue to use it, but as Amund is practically double the size Islwyn was at this age.... Also notice how he is sort of crawling already! He just rolls and squirms himself wherever he wants to go.

Me walking over to Amund while modeling the dress I made. I love this pattern and fabric. I can't wait to try it out with different sleeves, neckline, etc and different fabric.

Us matching!

Otherwise we just spend our days at the zoo as much as possible since they close at the end of the week for the winter. Islwyn loves to ride his trike up and down the sidewalk and all over the driveway. He even has his own parking spot for it in the garage!

I made Islwyn and Amund matching outfits. Same pattern, but different colors.
