Minions, Minions, and More Minions!

Just before Sebastian's birthday the Tribe took an adventure to see Despicable Me 2 with my dear husbands family. The boys were wonderfully behaved and sat quietly to watch the movie. Laughing at the silly minions being kidnapped and the silly misfit crew going being the funny critters that they are. For days the kids ran around the house singing BEE-BOOOP at each other and shooting everything/everyone with their imaginary fart blasters. So it was no surprise when my oldest asked that I make him a minion hat for his Birthday. Knowing me yes sadly it was finally finished two days after his actual birthday, but all the same he loved it. The boys love being involved in projects I make for them. Picking colors, and with these lovable minions they could each choose something unique to make the hats more their own. Now my precious oldest loves having things made for him, so naturally the younger boys like to go and play with his things while he is at school, so the poor kiddo has to find new places every few days to hide his minion hat and ect. With Declan being the next in the line of birthdays, for the kids, he too made his choice of how many eyes, hair or no hair, wicked or silly grin for his hat. Now two boys down and with Sebastian and Declan both having their own minion Fox decided to be my wild child and go for a one eyed minion. Now with a new little one on the way I have plans of making an Evil Minion Hat to use for an upcoming family picture to send out for Christmas this year announcing our new bundle of joy! These hats are so fun to make and always unique, Looking forward to casting this fun project on my needles for my nephew and many years to come!

Guess who's expecting?

So here we go again, a long absence called life to interrupt posting on my blog. My lovely computer died and I've had to return to my notebook to continue the majority of my social connections, via facebook, and ravelry. Which of course has made uploading pictures and staying up to date on the latest news a tedious chore with my notebook constantly deciding to restart at random and the keys are a sticky. Sebastian's 6th Birthday came and went, so too the start of school. One more year and then too Fox will be the next to start the joyous adventure of riding the school bus and dreaded homework. Found out in July my dear husbands sister is expecting her first baby, a precious little boy to arrive towards the end of January. So naturally I am thrilled. So far I have made my nephew a football cocoon and hat set, a baby blanket Razorbacks colors for the Hog loving family to enjoy together. A Razorback Hat and a pair of baby booties. The day before my Mother's Birthday My husband and I too confirmed we are expecting our fourth precious bundle in March. This being our last pregnancy I wanted to enjoy being pregnant, no negativity, no regrets, no stressing over everyone else's thoughts. With my mother's birthday the following day and my father's being in March we shared the news and for the first time received a happy welcomed Congratulations!!! First time Ever was a total shock! I am in High hopes for a sweet little girl this time around and the knitter in me has been suddenly consumed with making pink baby blanket after pink baby blanket again in high hopes of a little girl to wrap in bows and pretty pastel yarns. No matter how much I try the boys will only allow me to get away with so much. Luckily just in case the fates have decided that another boy is in our future Two cousins of mine are also to have babies due in the new year around January and April. Fingers crossed this sudden obsession with pink is a sign!
