Dec. 10 - My new scarf

I finally finished my scarf. This is made with the first yarn that I dyed. I love it! It's very warm and cuddly. I can even breathe through it when I pull it up over my nose, which is very nice for this time of year (I always feel like I'm suffocating when I breathe through scarves made with acrylic yarn). I love this scarf!

Dec. 9 - Big Boy Bed

This night Zeke went right in to bed and fell asleep on his own. It hasn't been that easy since then though. We have to lay down with him to get him to fall asleep. I'm going to have to figure something different out though, 'cause it's making us all really tired!

Dec. 8 - Lots of soup!

Remember all the stuff I did in the kitchen the other day? Well, this is what we did with it:

Most of the containers on this counter are filled with Beef and Barley soup. You can see some of the bread on the counter behind Kim.

Half of these containers are Potato Soup, and half are Ham and Bean Soup.
We had a great time making soup. We made five huge stock pots full in just over 2 hours. It was a lot of fun.

Dec. 7 - In the kitchen

Tonight Sierra and I went to a baby shower. But when I came home, this is what I did. Prepared food for meal-making at MOPS tomorrow. We are making several kinds of soups and bread to give to people in need in the Valley.

The pinto beans in the bowl are actually for us, but there are 2 lbs of white beans soaking on another counter. And the big globby mess in the yellow bowl is half of the batch of No Knead Bread dough that I made.

It's been kind of fun being in the kitchen like this again. Mixing up bread dough, planning ahead and soaking beans for tomorrows dinner. It reminds me of what my life was like while I was pregnant with Zeke. I hope I can get back to that someday (if I can get my butt off of Facebook!). Maybe tomorrow I will spend some time reading old blog posts as motivation....

Goodnight all!

Dec. 6 - Wrestling Match

The boys having a wrestling match while Emma looks on from the Bumbo. Sierra was still sitting at the table finishing her dinner (an hour after the rest of us were done).

Dec. 5 - My Pretty/Ugly Hat

This is the first thing I have knitted for myself (except for a washcloth and Swiffer cover). It's kind of ugly. But it's comfy and warm, and I'm hoping to get a lot of use out of it this winter.

Dec. 1 - Sweet Girl

My sweet brown-eyed girl in the "newborn" hat I made her. It's just now getting too small.

A Photo a Day in December

So, I'm stealing Heather's idea. I'm going to chronicle the month of December on my pictures. Since I just decided to do this today, I don't have pictures for the 2nd through the 4th. But I will share one for the 1st and for today. Hope you enjoy them. And feel free to remind me if I forget a picture. :D
