baby blankets

I have so many people around me having babies! Don't get excited, we have no announcement to make...other than these cool blankets :) My Mom helped me figure out how to make them, and although that are not complicated I think they turned out so cute!

This one was for my sister-in-law Alaina, who just had her first baby. She had a little girl named Ariah whom we get to meet this week along with another new nephew Cruz (sorry that you didn't get one Cruz, this is a new found ability)!!! I found this super cute material and even though there is very little pink - I thought it was perfect! Hey, girls like green!!!

This one is for my friend Janeen who just had her first little boy David a couple of days ago!
I just hope that these blankets are useful as I think they are cute!

Freaky Potatoes

So the big question is... How long have they been in there?  How long do they have to be sitting in a cupboard before those arms start growing?  And how long does it take the arms to get that long?  Our estimation: 4 months.  
I was checking on what I needed to get at the store for dinner.  I think we may have potatoes...
AHHHHHHH!  I laughed for 10 minutes.  The little branch arm thingys started growing out of the holes in the bag.  It was quite startling.

It may not strike you as funny as it did me.  I had never seen anything like that before!  I just wanted to include you in my little domestic discoveries!
