December’s post…finally! Sorry, I just haven’t been able to be online. I’ll leave this as a sticky for awhile and then drop it down chronologically. January is coming too I promise…hopefully sooner rather than later. But, we’ll see. *sigh*

12/20 P.’s 12th tooth!

No midwife appt. as she is in Honduras for two months. The apprentice is supposed to coordinate things with a “substitute” but I didn’t hear from her this month. We’ll see what’s happening in Jan. hopefully…

Crafts

12/5 Finished W.’s hat!

The flash washed out the color a bit in the picture. It is a solid black.

12/10 – 15 Finished E. and Q.’s hats this week!

Again, the color isn’t right in the picture. The boys chose red (not orange!) and black. Both hats are alike.

The boys getting good use out of their new hats!

12/20 Finished M.’s hat!

She chose these colors just because she really liked them…

but they were the perfect match for her coat! Funny how we do things like that without really thinking… You can’t see it in the picture but the trim on her coat is light pink. She also chose not to have ribbing added for a brim.

12/24 Finished B.’s hat!

B. chose a very patriotic theme. πŸ™‚

The two older girls getting good use out of their hats too! πŸ™‚

12/26 Finished C.’s hat!

Somehow I missed getting a pic of C. in her hat! 😯 I’ll have to get one and add it later…
