Welcome to the Funny Farm, Come on in!

Ok so sometimes my kids are funny, and then there are times when they are out of control. Last week I have to say they were out of control funny.

Bud has been a long time advocate of hats....everything has hat potential, but he is particualarly fond of underwear or pullups as hats.

He is trying to bring his little brother over to the odd side too :) The other day, he handed Bret a pair of underwear and said, "If you put these on your head we can be a family." Bret proceeded to nod, take the underwear and place them on his head!! I had to get pictures of the "family" Too Cute!

This on the other hand is inexplicable really. I was in a sort of "woke up on the wrong side" and was busy trying to do 5000 things all at once when Shyanne said "Hey, mom, look what I can do..." I turned and dropped what I was doing cause what I saw put me into hysterics.....mood over.......but what posses her?????? I may never know, and it is probably better that way!

Again with the underwear. Only Bud says, "hey ma, this pair make me look like a pirate" Hmmmm mom thinks.....must be something they add to that brand??? Specifically???? WHolly how can you not laugh!

Even Panda tries to get in on the comedy. Watch out dog I have been known to eat fried tongue.

Aside from wearing his brothers underwear on his head, Bret has taken the gangster approach to diaper wearing. You put a diaper on him and he immediately shoves his thumbs in the back and shoves em' down, just far enough so the crack of his plumbers smile shows. So figured I would share his pretty smile with y'all.

He is gonna kill me when I show his first girl friend this site :)

Here is the sinister eye of no return! Ok so apparently someone in the house decided to see if they could melt the wood stove and burn the house down........I won't mind so long as I have warning enough to get all my yarn, scrapbooks, kids (duh), animals, and clothes....well basically let me move out first ok!!!!!

We thought it looked really was however extraordinarily HOT, and look at where our super smart black lab parked herself.
This is not an unusual spot to find her, she loves to be hot....she soaks it up and then pants her way out, plunks down in the middle of the floor and goes back for more heat.

So I have a friend who at the age of 33 has breast cancer. Found out right before Christmas, had her breast removed 2 days afterward, and a week later a port put in, and started chemo last week. 33 years old. She is 2 years older than I am. What do you do when you want to help but there is nothing you can really do? Well me, I a fiend actually. This is an Odessa Hat. I knit it in the recommended yarn and put some cheap walmart pearls on it. Shy really liked it, but she can't have it. It is the first chemo cap for my friend, who will also have to have radiation after the chemo is done.

Shyanne actually looked really cute in it, although she wouldn't let me take an un-posed ic of her in it. she kept giving me the wierd eyes every time I would go to take a picture.

I also knit up an angel for my friend, hers is holding the pink ribbon. I think she is actually one of the best ones I have done so far. The other is for my uncle who has cancer as well. Man someone really needs to find the cure.......and quickly!

These angels are time consuming. But the whole I knit them I was thinking about who I was knitting them for and why. So a whole lot of love, blood (I pricked my finger umpteen million times while I was putting them together) and tears for what they are going through. Man o Man.

They are on my computer keyboard to give you an idea of how tiny they are.

This is the yarn for the 2nd chemo cap, and the beads that my friend picked out herself. It is already done but I have to sew the ends in. I had my doubts about the colors together, but they came out really cute!

So another friend's hubby wants a skull hat, liked the hello yarns, we call them pirates pattern but wanted it bigger and a bit more this is my first attempt at designing......I actually enjoyed it.....learned a few things, but all in all it was a good experience. Now I can get knititng it :)

So how is your padded cell today?
