Pig Cake, Paw Print Pillow, and Cotton-Candy…

Busy day so far. All the kids had a great day at church – Aidan and Katie volunteer in the Toddler Room every other week, and Maddy attends the kids program. Aidan loves working with the toddlers – I think he may be a teacher when he grows up. Once we got home, Maddy and I made the Pig Cake (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/01/pig-cake/)…

 Can I tell you JUST how dirty my oven is? hmmm…

Last night on facebook I posted “to knit or to bake… that is the question”… My niece, Jackie, in her ultimate wisdom responded “both!” so this is for her…

As a mom I can do it all!

Notice how my clothes totally match the knitting, AND my dishes, AND my drink! LOL!

I then sat down to knit, and Maddy decided she wanted to make a fleecy pillow case. I told her to pick out  some fleece, and get a pillow case for good measure, and lay it out…

She asked me what to do next, and because the fleece was only $3.00 for a yard and a half (after sale and coupon) I told her to see if she could figure it out, and I would watch, but to not forget her seam allowances. She did perfect…

(Yes, those are my husbands icky wet socks from shoveling today)

Then she asked if she could try to sew it by herself – I said “go for it!”

Maddy’s First All-By-Herself-Sewing-Project!!!!!

I finished Maddy’s first Cotton-Candy-Rific Slipper…

Maddy still need the ends sewn in and the buttons put on.

All that, and we’re only on lap 40 in Phoenix! Go Racing Day!
