My little lamb, ready to help hand out candy.

Pumpkin seeds are done, dude. We didn't have very many.

Gonna roast pumpkin seeds.
Mommy tip: when clipping baby's nails while asleep, clean them up from the bed with tape wrapped around the hand.

Morgana's carved pumpkin. Wish I had remembered to buy candles for the pumpkins!

Pumpkin carving!

Morgana's lovey, Carmen, needed stitches before going in the washer this morning.

Here we are. Bo Peep and her sheep. Little Miss's costume was my secret crochet project!

Little Miss tried to find milk in Daddy's male co-worker's ol' lady costume. Oh and secret's out. Here's Mo's costume! I accidentally posted a pic of her wearing the hat a little while ago and just hoped no one put two and two together. I'm Bo Peep. Pics of us both coming soon!

Someone was getting fussy during clean up time, so threw her in a high back carry in the diy mei tai.

And Little Miss was so good to let me finish all the dipping without interruption. She watched Sesame Street on the laptop netflix and munched on puffs.

All done! And I fashioned a disposable serving tray from the bottom of a box covered in foil. I'm always forgetting my dishes at people's houses. This way there's no worries.

Making pumpkin choc chip cake truffles for a Day of the Dead sugar skull decorating and Hallwoeen party that we're all going to tomorrow.

Twice now, she's fallen back to sleep crawling towards me during nap.
The costume reveal for Morgana and I will be soon!

Morgana's pumpkin. She helped color the squiggles around the face.
Sorry for the lack of posts. Busy, busy with Halloween coming! I'll try to post more!

Made my first shepherds pie for dinner tonight. It was pretty alright.

Birdies in the tree outside the window! She smiles so big and babbles her face off when she sees them. That dark speck above her head is a bird.

What is she looking at?

Crocheted a ball for Little Miss today.




Little Miss likes to share bananas with Mommy for afternoon snack. 9 months.

I bought the girls pumpkins. Morgana's real excited about her first pumpkin!

Made a yarn hair fall from black/grey Homespun I had on hand for fun. Dare to wear outside of the house or don't even think it? Comment.

Slipper Socks for Kate

Another peak at the secret crochet project. It's done now!

She has a tape measure tongue, hahahaha!

Here's more of the secret crochet project. I ripped it out and started over with a smaller hook and one strand of yarn. The first one was just too bulky.

So, I'm knitting and I look down to see that Little Miss's arm has escaped her shirt. First time she's ever done that. I shoulda seen it coming. She does, after all, pull and push her arms through sleeves while getting dressed and undressed now.

Knitting slippers for Kate, just need to bind this first one off, then it's on to the next.

My friend, Jennifer, just dropped off some embroidery hoops for me. Now I can get hopping on embroidering and sewing my mei tai! Ugh, too many projects! Mo blanket and costume, my costume, mei tai and slippers for Kate. My head is spinning.

Little Miss and I were playing with her toys and I explained that they are all friends and watching TV... even the green crochet coaster and that even though he doesn't have a face, he's a person too.

Boots Are Done, Dude.

Knit boots for Morgana. (Oh! Baby Baby Booties pattern) I upped the needle size to 8 for her foot size, she's 9 months.

And a video for you:

If you want to play in my lap while I knit, it's really, really okay... because I love you so and always enjoy being close to you. In fact, I feel like something's wrong when we're apart. (9 months)

But in the meantime... Nana to the rescue with these cute mocasin booties!

One down.
