was great. We celebrated early with Tim's family - taking a second annual family Christmas trip. Here are a few things I made - and you could make too - there is still time.
Dress up clothes for the girly girl:
(Pink with purple trim 4-panel circle skirt with flat french seams so she can wear it with either the shiny or matte side out, a pink and purple reversible cape - also a circle for maximum swish, and a "feather boa" crocheted tube - made with this yarn so it won't molt all over the house.) Our niece put the skirt on the minute she opened the box and didn't want to take it off all weekend. Score.
Hats and scarves:
I crocheted a hat and scarf for the niece and each of the three nephews. Nathan liked his so much he wore it pretty much all weekend too. The hats were all made from the same pattern as Aidin and Eliot's. And I got the book as a gift, so no more overdue notices from the library. (Thanks, Todd and Deb!)
I also made freezer paper stencil t-shirts for my sister-in-law and her husband.
The best part of the weekend was time spent together. We rock climbed, shot foam balls at each other, had bumper car battles, pretend played, face painted, swam in the motel pool, and ate at Fritz's where our meal was delivered by train.
Now, on to this week's birthday.
