Sometimes you just have to skip to the good stuff!

Got my day started today with errands and grocery shopping. The littlest lady was sick so we did the abbreviated version which was just fine with the little man too. I must say though that I still managed to get enough to feed my family of 6 for a week on only $50 at the grocery store, one of my best runs yet!! What did I do before I learned how to coupon? Little tummies fed, nap time prayers said, kitchen cleaned up and then a moment of knitting! I love this time of the day. It always gives me a chance to pray and relax. It seems like time goes by so quickly that it's nice to get the chance to let it slow down once in a while.
So here are the pictures of the progress that I'm making. You'll have to ignore all of the strands of yarn at this point, I still have some weaving in to do. The extra strands don't usually bother me though, I think it's the ICU nurse in me...I'm used to untangling all of the tubes and wires so what's a few strands of yarn?
So these are called monster longies. When I'm done, that will be an adorable little monster face on the bum bum of these little pants. There are certain projects that are just fun from start to finish, and this is one of them for me. I have visions of jack o'lantern bum bums and bunny bum bums, and eye lashes and hair bows and... Anyway, you get the idea, the options are endless! Can't wait to see them in action on the backside of some adorable little person!
