An afternoon with the boys.

They were at work with us,
they were a little "antsy"
I mentioned that if they cleaned up...
I would take them home for the afternoon....
It started like this.
Two little angels loving my phone and the bowling app.
Don't they look innocent and well-behaved?

 And then...
This happened.
See the little one still calmly sitting there playing with my phone?
 See the mess increasing and the little one still is entertained quietly...
 Even as the fun amps up...he is still calm.
 Still being the perfect child.
 Like that was going to last.
 NOT!!!
 And then it escalated.
Plastic candy cane sword fighting.
 And the words of the day when they went to my sewing room to get the candy canes.
Tyler takes a look at my sewing room, which I am trying to clean and reorganize and says,
'What is this mess?" and then
"You better get this cleaned up before Mommy sees this"
I ask why.
To which he replies,
"My mom hates messes, she REALLY hates glue messes and paint messes and soap messes."
I know there are stories in there somewhere.






Hats for babies.

And a few more cowls. 
head on over to my selling blog and sign up for the giveaway for one of these.  If I get 50 sign ups, I'll add another cowl to the giveaway.  Either way, there will be a choice for the winner to pick from!

I think it's really something how you're giving cowls away and your own daughter hasn't got one yet!

You're right — you are calm and don't mind messes. If I would have walked in on that crazy scene of yarn I would have had a conniption! Having said that, it did make for some hysterical photos and they sure did look like they were having the time of their lives. Plus, you probably got some big points for staying so calm!
