This is my son, Brandon, and my grandsons (Brandon’s nephews), in their camo Mohawk hats I made for them. Brandon had bought the yarn for me to make one for him, and he mentioned that Clayton might like one. Since I made Clayton one, I thought it only fair to make Lawson one as well. We were all at my daughter’s house the other night, and the boys posed for this picture. :)

I saw the idea for one of these on Pinterest. My daughter and I both liked the idea. I made her one for Christmas, which I couldn’t post on here until today…for obvious reasons. She loves it, and this picture is one she took of it on her table. A few of the doilies I just made up as I went along. I wanted to make sure I had a variety of sizes. The one on Pinterest was made of vintage doilies, I think, but I thought it would work just as well with new doilies. :)

I have been busy making Christmas presents, which I can’t show here yet for obvious reasons, but on Sunday I decided I wanted to play around with some Simply Soft yarns that I had on hand. I loved the colors and thought I’d make a bunting with them. But as it turned out I ended up making ornaments instead. I bought a small tree…3 feet tall, I think…at a garage sale last year, and I think I will put it up after Christmas and have a “winter tree”. I will put these ornaments on it, as well as others that I *might* get made. :)

Last week I purchased the pattern for these little owls. Once I got started making them, I couldn’t seem to stop! All of these ended up on my Christmas tree, except for the one in the bottom right-hand corner. It will probably be a tuck-in gift in somebody’s Christmas card. I’m hoping to get a few more made. Right now I am in the beginnings of some sickness though. Fever, sore throat, etc. I hope that whatever it is leaves me quickly. I have too much I want to do before Christmas. Anyhoo, I mostly went by the pattern, but I did my own thing for the owl’s beak. I did it according to the directions first time around, then decided I wanted to do something else. If you’d like to make some of your own little hooties, you can purchase the pattern here.
Here is a picture of Miss Adelyn, who was my Christmas tree decorating helper yesterday. The guys were out hunting, and she hung out with Gramma Rita. :)
I was in the bathroom when she came to the door and told me she was hungry (we had already eaten lunch), so I told her she could get a pack of gummies out of the pantry. When I came out, this is what I found. ;) LOL She *did* get the gummies, as well as some cookies. She cracks me up!
I made chili for supper, and she helped me stir the cornbread.
