My sis-in-law Shiloh made the cakes (and threw the birthday party). They were so cool. She has such a great imagination. She didn't have any pirates to put on the ships, so she made them ghost ships. They were a big hit!
After the birthday party, I went trick or treating with my friend, J and her kids. Ben and I just trailed along with his stroller. We seriously have so much candy left over from handing out to the neighborhood kids. Obviously, I overestimated our need for candy. And then we all had a homemade doughnut feast at my house. It was delicious. Good times, people, good times. I really enjoyed it.
So my trip to Montana was awesome! Jamie and I have so much in common. Ben was completely crazy about her 3 year old boy. He followed him around a lot. And he also attacked him a lot.
But what I really want to tell you about is the super cute bag that Jamie made while I was there. Check out this sweetness.
And she also taught me how to make this bag. I was so excited to make it when I got home! I worked on knitting things the whole time I was there. So check out the bag I made.
My bag is bigger than the bag Jamie made because I used the original specs in the pattern. However, I have enough fabric to make another bag similar to mine in the smaller size. Someday when I actually make it, I think I'll have a giveaway and give it away. I'm moving up in the blogosphere, people. If not in page hits, at least in desirable content. Hooray! I also hate the word blogosphere. Just for the record.
I guess I should also tell you that I got my haircut, and I really really like it. I got the Amelie haircut, but I really should not have asked for the bangs. Shorter bangs just don't look right on me. If I had a picture of them I would post it, but I don't My cowlick won't allow my bangs to lay flat against my forehead. Now really, what was I thinking?! I don't think these pictures really do my haircut justice.
(Aaaaaaaaargh, I'm givin' ye tha stink eye!)
Hmmmmm... I'm thinking the back needs a trim already... Now if you'll excuse me, I have too much candy to eat, so I'd better get started.
