April End . .

I can hardly believe I haven't posted here since the beginning of the month. It has been a rather busy Month, Nothing especially new or exciting going on just busy with everyday life and still getting the hang of Jake's new work schedule. We're doing much better with it now than at first. But it's not great and I'm pretty sure it won't be as long as he works nights. He sleeps well and everything but we don't get to see him very much on those 4 days that he works and that's a little hard. But we do what we must and are thankful for what we have for sure.

Let me think... Where to start. Easter was great! We had a ham dinner with Mom, Kristi and Grandpa. The Weather was a little icky but it did stop raining long enough for us the hide and let the girls hunt their pretty easter eggs... Abbey was very cute... asking please before she picked up her first egg. Very funny... Here are a few photo's from our Easter Day.

Abbey & Ashley had another big change this Month. Abbey was sleeping in a toddler bed, the same toddler bed we had used for Ashley, A plastic peace broke on it and we couldn't see buying another toddler bed for her to use for maybe another year. The girls room is too small for two twin sized beds, They would fit but they wouldn't have room for much else. So I went on a hunt for the best deal on bunk beds. I had to find something affordable and something with a removable for Abbey's safety. We got lucky because Ashley's sleigh bed had a hidaway bed so we already had two mattresses and we didn't have to buy that. I found a bunk bed that we all really like and it had the best price tag to boot... Here is a shot of the girls trying out the new bed.

Our weather here in Oklahoma has been absolutely rediculous. One day we have severe thunderstorms with tornado warnings and the next day its in the 80's and the next day it's too dry and terrible wildfires are raging everywhere. it's scary... It's those few nice days we've had me and the girls have made the most of it by spending sometime outside on the swingset :)

In knitting news. I've got a few new projects going. I'm going to stop with the dishcloths. I'm spending all my time on those and not trying new things and learning to knit new things. I've started the Mae Day dress for Abbey, I'm almost half finished with it and I started a pair of socks for Ashley that I've been promising her for awhile :) My knit in nights were on Monday's but with Jake's work schedule I wasn't going to be able to attend very often, so the ladies in the knit group were so nice and more than willing to change the night. I enjoy the ladies I knit with so much, Such an interesting group :) I'm learning a lot from all of them.

I did finish a long time project I'd been working on, When my friend Brie told me she was pregnant I knew I had to find the perfect baby blanket pattern and knit it for the baby. It took me awhile to find a pattern I liked enough to make for a good friend. But baby willow finally has her blanket... here are some shots I took of it before mailing it out :)

Okay I think that's about all there is to post about this time.

Until next time . . .

Hasn't the weather been insane? Crazy crazy spring! And our house is on the lowest part of our lot so all the rain puts us in a lovely swamp...I'm so over it LOL
