Last year, I knit Kalonji a Dr. Who 4th Doctor scarf for Christmas. Then, I crocheted myself a 4th Doctor “inspired” scarf to match him. Then, I decided I liked the colors so much that I wanted to make us a 4th Doctor-inspired bedspread. Six months later, I’ve finally finished it. We have a queen-sized bed and this is the largest crochet project I’ve done. I’m hooked (pun intended) and want to make more bedspreads!
Had a great day yesterday with Kaleya and her friends. They took BFF pics!
A few are below – more can be found here.
…and where does the time go! This week, Kaleya turned 10 and we had quite a time celebrating.
Monster High, My Little Pony, drawing supplies and more among her presents. Kalonji took the Father-of-the-Year Award though with this present. He commissioned a painting for her that incorporates two of Kaleya’s favs – rainbows and Dr. Who (the blue box is his time travel machine, the TARDIS).
Then this weekend, we held a slumber party for her. She’s been wanting a slumber party at a hotel for awhile now, so we finally did it. It was great! We played cards, played doll babies, watched TV, painted nails, played video games — all the things you expect from a group of kiddos. And of course we had birthday cake.
Thanks everyone! It was fun!
Watch out world! Kaleya is a mini-librarian in training. Well, at least for her school she is 🙂
This weekend we spent time getting their library set up. The school is building up a new space for the kids, so lots of sweat and tears are being expended these days as everything is nearing completion. The library is no exception. And, of course, I the librarian has to train my mini-me to help out.
We had a ball!
