Peacefully Hooked

This is Sarah. From Eternity and Beyond. One of my new favorite blogs! No lie. I've been reading for about a month.

Sarah sometimes posts her "Outfit of the Day." Which is one of my favorite posts of hers. I really do like this necklace! Too bad I can't find one like it. If you've seen one, let me know!

This is Sarah and her hubby. They are "Newlyweds." And darn cute if you ask me! Just look at them.

This is honestly one of my favorite pictures, from her blog. It reminds me a lot of a picture, that my bridesmaids and I took, on my wedding day.

Sarah is also very crafty. Look at this cute cowl she made. I just adore the color! So fun. And it looks so warm and comfy!

This is one of my favorites! I wish I could make one for myself. I think it would be extra special to crochet it myself.

And these hats, they'd be perfect for the twins. I could just see them all bundled up to play in the snow! :)

These booties also melt my heart. I'd honestly love to buy the pattern for them. Oh, it just makes me smile thinking of them!

So go check out Sarah's blog! It is so super cute! And I really do love reading her new posts. I feel like we'd be friends if we ever met. She's just a very "down-to-Earth" kind of person.

In the Office

Lauren was so excited when she saw this pattern from Free Crochet today. Lauren is really enjoying her Barbies now. And she feels like I can just make anything! I'm slowly crocheting with yarn now. And I haven't even ventured off into "thread crochet." But I guess I should start trying. Because this is really a cute pattern. :)

Crafty Anna Crochet Patterns

I've found my favorite Etsy shop ever! Crafty Anna! She has so many cute crochet patterns. All about $5. These toys are just adorable! I want to buy all the patterns. What do you think Billy would say?

Let's take a look at some of my favorites...

The "Play" Stuff:

The "Food" Stuff:

I really do want to buy every pattern that Anna has. I wonder if she would sell them at a deal? You know, if I bought them all at once. I think my kids would have such a great time playing with all these goodies!

Oh, and Anna also has a wonderful blog. Full of beautiful images. She posts various sales, free patterns, and just fun stuff!

Special Gift

When Lauren was born, my mom got me this amazing stained glass window hanging. Of a baby girl. Pink bonnet and all! I cherish it. And it is hung, in the window, of my makeup room. Well, my mom had been telling me, that she had a present for me. But she couldn't find it. I'd forgotten about it. Until today...

My mom not only found my present, but mailed it to me. 2 more babies for my window! These cuties are being hung in our kitchen nook window. I just love that my mom thinks of such wonderful and meaningful gifts. Thank you momma!

Lauren really enjoys her "Craft Time." She's always talking about what she wants to make next. And always making and giving things out to our family and friends. Recently, Lauren got a present in the mail. For this cute kit. Auntie Lizzie sent it special for Miss Lauren.

And little Miss has been so antsy to get busy. Today, we're going to craft. And this kit, it's on our list! I just can't wait to see what my little girl creates. She is so artsy. And I enjoy this so much! What kinds of things do your kids do for "Craft time?"

Hearts in Hearts Baby Afghan & Bib

When I get better at crocheting, this is definitely going to be on the top of my list. I mean, this is just too cute! I want to make one for Lauren and one for Abby. Just the blanket. So adorable! If you like it too, download it from Free Crochet today. It's the free pattern of the day.

Abby's Baby

Since I told you about Lauren and Robbie's favorite Christmas presents, I wanted to show you Abby's. Funny how she is just "Over the Moon" about this little dolly! I just love "baby's" hair. :)

Abby got this doll from her Godmother (Nana) for Christmas. This cuddle-y dolly is just Abby's favorite thing ever! She has to have her baby with her at all times. To sleep, to go in the car, to go everywhere and anywhere that we go!

My little girl is a very simple gal. I'm thinking that she is already so much like her Nana. Easy going, loving, and just 100% incredible! My favorite, is to watch Abby with her baby. She gives her lots and lots of loves. Plenty of sloppy, "baby kisses." And just tons and tons of big 'ol hugs!

It's funny how different, yet similar our kiddos are. I really enjoy spending this time with them. Watching them grow and love. And just seeing them play. They love each other. And they are all so independent of one another. It's really amazing! Thanks Lola for Abby's present. I'm sure that Abby's baby will be with us for a very, very long time!

Bear & Blanket

It's been cold around here. And that is giving me lots of cuddle time on the couch. The kids and I crawl up on the couch and watch cartoons. I've also been crocheting more and more. It really is relaxing!

Today's free pattern from Free Crochet is just too cute! That teddy bear is just darling. And something my kids could cuddle up to. I wonder how long it will take me to make 3...

Friendly Critter Afghan

If I was more skilled, I'd have already gone out and bought the yarn! Look at this cute pattern from Free Crochet. Another one of their amazing free patterns. I just love looking at their site everyday for the free pattern of the day! But honestly, this would be great for Robbie! I might have to ask for some help, but I want to make this for him. If I start now, maybe by the time he starts kindergarten I'll have it done! :)
