Finished Knitting project!!!

I am sad to say I started these socks in April 2009.  I just don't get to knit much now that I have beautiful children.  These brown bamboo socks are now finished and way too small for the original recipient, Gabriel.   But they fit Garrett just right.

Candy Corn Inspired Cupcake

Feeling Halloween festive today and whipped up these cupcakes.

Gabriel's First Dental Cleaning

Gabriel has visited the pediatric dentist a few times now, but this morning was his first attempt at an actual tooth cleaning.  Gabriel brought his listening ears and did great.   His teeth are all sparkling clean!  A little decay on a top right molar that we need to watch.  And his knocked in front tooth is still trying to decend.  It's crooked but not discolored, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.  Gabriel picked a new pink toothbrush, got some kid toothpaste and he chose a red dragonfly for a prize.  The hygienist said that Gabriel should receive a special reward envelope in the mail for giving up his paci last March.

Swapping Footwear

Inspired by the upcoming clothing swap at the boys' daycare and the change of season, I went through all of the boys shoes and the storage bag of shoes not in circulation.  I pulled out things that no longer fit to store them away, handed some of Gabriel's shoes down to Garrett, and made a list of essential footwear items we need to get for Gabriel.  Gabriel hated these slippers in the photo when he was young enough to wear them.  Now that they have been passed down to Garrett,  he wants his own pair of "bear feet."  At one point he thought he might like dinosaur feet. He keeps cramming his feet in them hoping his feet will fit.
