Puppy Party

Well it seems like I have had an unexpected blog break. Much needed though I think but boring too!  There hasn't been much to blog lately.  Things have been busy & I expect it will only get busier as the routines of the weeks change again in the coming week.  The new term of activities started which means swimming with both boys now, plus a bit of extra work for me at the moment, but that all changes again in just weeks.  You just start to adjust & it changes again!  Woo boy!  So much going on!  I don't know how people manage with more kids than this!  

We did celebrate the wee ones first birthday this past week though.  Actually we celebrated 2 days early as his birthday landed on a work & day care day & since he doesn't have a clue we had a mini party for him.  Party consisted of cake & that's all.  Visitors were the grandparents & that's all too!  Nice & easy.  But enough for him at the age of 1!  Amazing that the year has flown by as it has.  

DJ loves our dog & likes dog things so I thought a dog cake would be fitting.  I had to do something interesting so he doesn't start to suffer to much from second child syndrome!   BJ's first cake was a guitar so we had to do something interesting but it turned out quite easy really so that was a bonus too.  The tricky part was trying to keep it looking like a dog & not a bear!  Didn't take much to turn it into a bear!  

Trying to eat cake!  DJ did eat some & made an awful mess with the rest!  BJ was very excited about his brother's birthday.

Here is DJ also on that day with the new jumper my mum had just knitted for him.  It look terrific.  It's the Baby Crofter yarn from Sirdar & the pattern is one that goes with it.  Looks lovely.

I have only done a little crochet lately.  Been working on the ripple blanket & have done a couple of squares for the CAL.  I should get a bit motivated & blog the last squares.  I will have to see what I am up too!  Ooops.   I don't think I have blogged the cowls I knitted either!  I guess I have a couple of things I could post then!  We'll see what time allows in the week.  Hope you are having a great weekend!

A year past already. Amazing. Not long and my babe will be one. Boo-hoo!
DJ has such lovely hair! O.'s hair is still so fine and short. The hair makes DJ look like a little toddler! My goodness - the time has just flown by.
Loving the definitely doggy cake. You're such a super mama.

... and yes winter sucks for the no-time syndrome. I think it is because the days are so short. I feel like diving into bed at around 6pm as opposed to summer where I stay up into the early morning. Maybe I'm a bear?
