Happy 18th Brandon.

Do to others as you
would have them do
unto you.

The last couple of weeks have been unreal on many levels, firstly with the celebration of our beloved son Brandon turning 18 years old. A fun filled night with Brandon’s friends left us feeling very proud of ourselves as parents and in the knowledge that Brandon makes good choices. We survived the weekend having a bunch of teenage boys over, and what fun they were. Happy Birthday Brandon and we wish you all the love in the world.

I’m 18!!!!                                             

I’m special.

I had extra days at work, organizing dental appointments and the never-ending stream of chores. I have been knitting baby clothes for special friends of ours expecting their first baby, and by the time I gathered everything I had knitted, I was staggered at how much there was! Pixie and Cory are acting like the stork and delivering the pink basket today. The baby has arrived and will be dressed in pink. Well done Joshua and Lisa.

Love and kisses
At the same time I have quietly been knitting chemo hats and caps for Joshua’s mum. I am going to knit more caps for there is a nice assortment to choose from. Beanies are alright, but a stylish selection of hats and caps would be even better. Much love to our wonderful friends. xxx

This mulberry coloured beanie was just a pattern I made up. 140 sts on size 10mm needles using 5 ply wool and away I went. I love the way the top of the beanie has turned out. It was a hit and miss project that turned out well. The cap below is not my creation but is called a Mulberry cap. The pattern can be found on Ravelry.
Made with love
Last but not least, here is Max having a snooze. He was up all night enjoying the 18th Birthday BBQ and was absolutely snozzled the next day. He’s pretty cute. Take care everyone and be thankful for everyday you have.


Regards, Anita.

O Wow & more Wow!

Poor Max - looks like birthday parties are hard on him. LOL

Wonder IF that was the way that you looked when Brandon was two weeks old??? LOL
