I keep meaning to post but.....

I keep meaning to post but with everyone home for the summer I have not had anytime to myself.  My husband and I are educators so we are both off in the summer, so I get a lot of family time; however that leaves little  computer time.  
I have gotten back to knitting, it took longer than I thought after the hand surgery, but I did manage to get some knitting done.  
Kennedy turned 1 on August 6, 2008 I was determined to knit her the Birthday Cake hat from Susan B Anderson's Itty Bitty Knits!  As you can see Kennedy loves it almost as much as her cake!
August is a busy month for us with 3 birthdays, Katie is the 10th, Kennedy the 6th, and my husband the 16th.  Believe me around here we are partied out.  
On the 6th we celebrated Kennedy's 1 st Birthday with some of her favorite friends!She had a great time and sentimental Mom, I am put her in the dress her big sister Katie wore for her first birthday.  The dress was a first birthday gift from her Grammy Roberts.
Then on Saturaday, I invited about 12 of Katie's friends over to celebreate her 6th birthday, complete with the Hannah Montana cake!  The kids had a blast and so did her little sister Kennedy!  
I am currently trying to work on the ribbons hat, again from itty bitty knits, for Katie.  I making it in a beautiful green and have altered the pattern to fit Katie's size and style, but I have not had time to take pictures of this work in progress.
