I’m behind on sharing birthday photos! I’ve been a little slow on blogging a bunch of things this year – but sometimes it’s just like that. Brian turned 11 this year and Honor 9. I can’t believe it! Measured both in January, on Brian’s birthday, and again in April and they both gained an inch in height over those three months. At least we’ve made it to the hot months so I don’t have to worry about buying any more jeans and sweat pants!
Honor had a friend over to celebrate her birthday with her and they made a great fort. Ninja approved.
Honor’s cake turned out wonderful… the texture of the frosting was a bit of a failure, but it tasted great!
Honor had asked for me to ‘make her a bunch of things’ for her dolls, so I crocheted like crazy! Honor joked that this dress doesn’t fit her.
It’s almost impossible to find doll patterns on the internet, so I just looked for crochet patterns for babies. Newborn and preemie sizes work for most dolls. 0-3 months is good for bigger dolls.
This dress pattern was rather plain… I spiced it up by using sunflower colors and adding a flower to the front.
Brian told me that he wanted Honor to have a doll for her dolls and asked me to make her a Siamese cat with a doll-sized leash.
Grandma and Grandpa sent some fun presents to Honor as well.
Ninja loves boxes and packages!
Ninja also approves of the blankie Grandma made :)
