What can I say, I have been busy! Very busy! I had to make 5 pairs of fingerless mittens. 1 set for my oldest daughter for her birthday (she wears them all the time). 1 set each for teachers for teacher appreciation week. 2 sets went with my oldest (she has teachers who team teach) and 1 set each for my younger 2 girls. I also had to make a snake for my oldest for her birthday. I also let the girls tell me what they want for their birthday dinner (if during school day they get one made at home and one where they request the meals for the entire day for birthday celebration). I have learned that when it comes to family, my girl's birthdays are "inconvient" and unless I do some big picnic celebration for the family, they are unable to come up to my house to celebrate the girl's birthday. So for the girl, who is celebrating their birthday, I let them have one whole day! They choose the meals for the day, where we spend the day and what we will do. My oldest chose the Columbus Zoo for her birthday celebration. So we went up to Columbus, OH and celebrated her special day! We went to the side of the zoo we haven't spent much time in recently (we usually go up the other side and it is a very large zoo). It was a lot of fun and the girls seemed to really enjoy themselves. So here are some of the photos since the last posting: 1st: The snake!
