yes, again with the busy! This week the kids had their first day of school (don’t worry there is FO picture at the end of this post!)
Corra and Bryce had their first day of school. Allysa can’t wait to go! Corra’s in third grade this year, and Bryce is in first. My, time is flying right by! While the older kid’s where in school Allysa and I baked cookies for them.
We used Sheri’s cookie recipe from this post. I love Sheri’s tradition of making cookies for her kids on the first day of school. It’s something I plan on doing. Thank’s Sheri for inspiring me! The recipe is a good one, mmmmm cookies!
Can you see that look in Bryce’s eyes? Please Mom, just one more cookie? I used chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and mini m&m’s since I didn’t have enough chocolate chips. Now, for the fiber (hehehe, no pun intended. Now, Mike. That’s a pun!)
I finished my Dad’s birthday socks
I’ll share the un-pattern with you when I get back home to Pennsylvania. We’re up visiting my parents again, and I left my notes at home. Dope! I’m feeling so good right now though, Dad’s birthday is in October and his socks are done early *big grin*. I started falling leaves shawl from Valley yarn’s Monday? I think it was Monday when I started it..
I’m using raw silk from Autumn House farm in the Hattie’s Zinnia’s colorway. Its really not as red as the picture is showing. I casted on with a size 8 needle and have been knitting with a size 7. I hope to have in done in time for Rhinebeck.
Mike and my cousin Jason, took the kids to the fish hatchery to go fishing. Kailey and I are going to enjoy some
knitting time peace and quiet. While it lasts that is!
PS thank you all for your wonderful Birthday wishes!!! You all really have made my week : )
Yay! How fun that you’re making first-day-of-school cookies a tradition in your household, too. I know your kids will grow up with fond memories of that like mine have. 🙂
What a great tradition to bake cookies on the first day of school – I like and wish I could have a cookie too 🙂
Love the cookie idea, how sweet. The Falling Leaves is in my queue as well, I adore that pattern–your looks great!
The kids look happy to be going back to school! Congrats on finishing your Dads socks early, they look great!
I just saw a few pictures on your Mom’s blog from your weekend; looks like everyone had a great time.
What a nice idea to bake cookies for the kids on their first day of school. I’ll bet Allysa really enjoyed that.
Great job getting the birthday socks done early. What yarn did you use? They are very nice.
I love back to school. The cookies are a great idea!
Socks are gorgeous!
You ARE busy…and super mom. I love the shawl and the yarn.
