My sister ventured here from Chicago with her two little ones. We've had a fun time together, pretty much just cooking and caring for a pile of kids, but it is always more fun to do the 'regular' stuff together. ;)
We had a little birthday party for the girls, as both of their birthdays come later this month. Our mum even joined in via facetime. M designed a birthday crown for little T (my niece) who is turning 1. The boys all decorated with Auntie Em's help. It was a special night. (The photos from most of the past week are poor quality as someone had switched a camera setting).
Finished my February Lady sweater! I love the fit, though I'm horrible at posing for photos and look very awkward in these. Out of the 5 sweaters that I've made myself in the past 11 years, this is by far my favorite!
And not really crafty, but I finally used the pears that I froze this summer in a smoothie and they were delicious. An almost totally homegrown smoothie. I decided to add coconut milk for a little extra creaminess...but other than that it was our blueberries, pears, milk, yogurt and maple syrup (oh and a bit of homemade kombucha).
