I'm almost finished with Miller's slippers for Christmas. It has taken me looking at several patterns, but I finally came up with my own. It's been kind of hard seeing if the slipper fits and him not figuring out it's for him. I have started telling him that they are for the church sale. I've even pulled a foot out from under his covers to see if the size is correct. This is somewhat worrisome, that kid didn't even move a muscle when I pulled on his leg. I hope no one tries breaking in, he wouldn't flinch.
I'm planning on slippers for Audrey, but am not totally for sure with the whole idea. Frankly I'm getting tired of the Magic Cast-On. I may make some wrist warmers for her. That's going to be what I make for Malorie also. Her feet are growing so fast that I can't even keep up with slippers for her. Thursday at basketball the coaches measured her and she was 5'0". She then proceeded to brag about it at home. "I've only got 6 more inches until I'm as tall as you, Mommy." Hate to break it to her, but she's not gonna get there. I won't allow even if she could. I'm not ready for her to get any bigger. I'll start slipping coffee into her orange juice. She'll never know the difference.
Work on Halloween costumes will be easy this year. Audrey wants to be a rock star and Miller wants to be a punk. I think he only wants this because he is under the assumption that only punks have spiked hair. He really wants his hair spiked up. (You can so tell he lives in a household of mainly women. He cares about his hair.) So for their costumes I just have to pull together a few items we have around the house and we will be done. I think this will be the cheapest costume year ever! Why couldn't the kids want to be something so easy and cheap when we were always broke.
