Back to the daily grind.... SIIIIIiiiiigh........
I appreciate all of the happiness I've gotten about me getting away. I feel like you all are as happy for my little break as I was. That makes me feel all mushy inside.
Oh and a special shout-out to my Momma who corralled the monsters (including and especially Lushifer [that's Luke to you], owch. SO glad I wasn't here this weekend. You earn the granny medal of endurance).
Now it's time for me to eat as much as possible before I start back on the diet-wagon tomorrow morning. :P
(And, P.S., does it make me a mom-ster that I didn't miss my kids AT ALL. Not even the little one. I hope not... hey, at least I included them in my tattoo....)

It's also baby-tested for snuggle-ability (and thrash-ability, as well)....
I anticipated needing much more yarn than I did, so I have one skein each left of the blue and pink colors, as well as some cream (which was leftovers from an earlier project anyways). So anticipate more, blanket-matching baby stuff to be shown in the near future.
Also, I am in the process of making some clothespin dolls and a portable dollhouse for Brenda's birthday (but mostly for our long driving trip and week vacation afterwards, so she has something to play with there that's small but fun and versatile)....
Yes, those are mermaids.
Edited to add:
1.) Yes, the blanket IS even, but I didn't have patience to take time and even it out for a picture so my baby could snatch it up just the moment before I snapped the photo.
2.) No, I apparently didn't find arms important in doll-designing. I just noticed... hmm...

After, when she said she wanted her hair cut "...like yours, Momma. But straight." (Brat)
Pretty little Sister. She absolutely needs to stop getting bigger, effective immediately. I'm sending her the memo now.

I might change the collar.
Also, yesterday the kids were bored (as usual) so I let them paint some tee-shirts.
Luke has worn his all day. I was told that both tee-shirts have butterflies on them.

Miss Smarty Pants is bored and can't wait to go back to school.
Well there they are. My pretty family. Hopefully it won't be another 1/2 year before I update again....
(Oh yeah, did you like my artsy black and white pictures? I'm getting mad at my camera because when the pictures go on the computer, the colors are weird. Maybe it's actually the computer.... whatever. I didn't like the color. So they're b&w. So there. :P)
