Fruit Loop Sweater for Emma

Here is my latest finished product - a summer top for Emma. It is a pattern by Pixie Purls titled "Fruit Loop." I knitted it in a cotton blend in watermelon colors. The size 3 fits her perfectly. I also knitted another in a pale aqua blue. How cute is this?

Dinner with family

We ate dinner at the Hansen's this evening and had a wonderful meal and visit. John grilled hamburgers and several varieties of sausage that we all enjoyed. Emma had fun with cousins Jayla and Brendon. Here are some photos I took of them today.

Sweater for Emma - Work in Progress

I am knitting a sweater for Emma in a yarn blend of cotton and acrylic. It is hot pink and orange with a rolled collar and hem. I crocheted some leaves and flowers to decorate the front and am embellishing it with some cute hot pink ladybug buttons. The pictures show it as I laid out the flowers and pinned them prior to blocking.

Lunch at Nana's House

Emma and Molly stopped by this morning for a visit. Emma played with Playdoh, paints, stamps, markers, and Nana let her use a pair of scissors (small blunt ones for children) and learned how to cut paper. Here are some pictures of her pretty blue eyes that I captured while she was eating lunch.


Emma's hair has grown long enough know to put in pigtails. She likes to have her hair fixed this way. Molly was travelling last week, so Bjarne fixed Emma's hair this way each day for school. She told me today that, "Daddy fixes my pigtails."

Visit to Greenville

Dan and I drove to Greenville today to see Robert, Emily, and Bobby and their new home. Here are my favorite shots of Bobby today. He is such a sweet baby! Emily and Robert have a wonderful home in a beautiful neighborhood. There is a great backyard for Bobby with the added bonus of squirrels. I am so glad to have them near by.

Bobby Howell

Here are some pictures I took of Bobby this week. He is such a good baby and he is always on the move. We are blessed to have him living close now so we can spend more time with him.

Hello Bobby!

Matt, Dan and I are at Sullivan's Island this week visiting with Emily, Robert, and Bobby. Emmy and Robert rented a beach house for their first month back in the US. Bobby is such a happy and easy going baby. Emily is expecting a brother or sister for Bobby and shared the news with us when we arrived. Here is a photo I shot of Bobby sitting on Uncle Matty's lap. He has the cutest blond curls.
