A Little of This and a Little of That

The time keeps flying by!  I see it's been almost a month since I last posted.  I've been keeping busy crocheting and getting ready for Christmas.  We recently celebrated our youngest grandchild's birthday.  He will turn 3 on Christmas Eve, but we celebrated a tad early.  He loves airplanes and had an airplane themed party, so I made him this hat.  I didn't use a pattern. I just winged it.  No pun intended.  lol  I'm not pleased with the plane's wings, but he could tell it is a plane, so that's what is most important.

The following items were made to order.  The colors in the pics aren't very good.  I used my tablet to take the pics, and the lighting wasn't right, etc., etc.

I've been crocheting lots of Christmas presents, too.  Can't show you most of them, but I will show you what I made for Adelyn and her dolls.  Her mommy has already seen them.  ;)  She has two American Girl type dolls, and they need some winter coats.  I found a pattern online for the coat and hat, and then I made a hat for Adelyn to match.  The pattern for the doll coat and hat can be found HERE.

We had a nice Thanksgiving.  I took a timed pic.  It's fuzzy, but it's better than no pic at all.  I just can't get over how quickly the kids are growing. -sigh-

Yesterday we did some cookie decorating.  I make sugar cookies, for Christmas, every year, and then go on the search of some decorating helpers.  :)  In this pic Lawson and I are talking about our matching spatulas.

I doubt I'll be posting again until after Christmas, so for those of you who celebrate Christmas, I wish you a very Merry Christmas!  And for those of you who celebrate something other than Christmas, I wish you Happy Holidays!  :)  Thanks for stopping by!
