thought i'd start putting these pics here so as to not bore some people who could  care less on the "ridge" blog....

here's a  new button's all ivory shades.

here is a hat that turned out EXCELLENT!  yay!  no failure this time!

here is the gift for sawyer's teachers.  it's for the classroom.  but i'd be glad to make anyone one who wants one.  if you'd like anything you know i've made, let me know, i can give you a price. is where you can reach me!
here is the cuteness. i wish this was for myself!  but it's for the three wonderful ladies who take care of sawyer every day! (sorry if any of you gals read the blog- i'm ruining the surprise! but it's too cute to leave off!)

lotsa pictures!

Some categorical pics:

Category one: visitors

Some of my former students visited over Thanksgiving break.  We had fun catching up and hanging out, and Sawyer especially enjoyed when the boys visited.  I have been so blessed to work with such great students in our great community.  It was wonderful to see a few of them again.

Visitor one:  Jill.  Jill visited one afternoon when it was just Ridge and I.  She even held him and he loved it, so much so that he slobbered all over her shoulder.

Visitors two and three:  Awesome and Calep.  AKA Austin and Caleb.  Sawyer loves these dudes.  Probably because they never show up without super cool toys are just great guys.

Austin and the Ridger.

Caleb reading Brown Bear Brown Bear to Sawyer...backwards...per Sawyer's request.

The infamous sticky hand...and the spiderman punching bag.  These are only two of the insanities the guys provided our three year old with.  Craziest were the screaming balloon rockets, but I didn't get a picture of those.  That sticky guys know I'm a germaphobe.

ALSO visiting that day was pal Stacy, but somehow I didn't remember to take a picture of her.  She held the Ridge a lot, too.  Good times.

Category TWO:  craftiness.

Maybe you've already seen these:.  This is one aspect of my craftiness here at the hospital.

Here is another, although this is the softest, it is not necessarily my favorite, of the scarves I've made.  
No, it isn't for Sawyer.  It's not manly enough.  And every scarf I've made is different, so if you're in the market for a scarf but don't like this one, don't judge. I will post more pics when I finish my current projects.

Here's some more craftiness...and if you follow my FB/Twitter stati, you know that I spoke of this as an epic fail.  Apparently, it wasn't as much of a fail as I thought.

It's not really higher on one side, he has it on lopsided. I promise.  So apparently, it actually fits.  It's a little loose around in circumference, but I can fix that.  I was worried about the length, but it was nothing a little blocking couldn't fix, apparently.  I'm not gonna lie.  I was stoked when he tried it on and looked that cute.  It's camouflage.
Last craftiness, thanks to Hobby Lobby.  If you are needing a cute, cheap craft, this is it.  Warning- no glue comes with it and Elmer's DOESN'T work.  Gotta break out the glue gun for this- or send your husband to Wal-Mart on Black Friday to buy one, like I did.  So now I even have a glue gun at the hospital.  Anyway, this craft is only $4.99, and it makes FOUR.  I think this would be so great for party favors/party crafts...and there are four different sets to pick from!!  Sooo cute.  Sawyer and I picked these out and made them Friday afternoon.  They are PUPPETS!

monkey, lion, toucan, hippo.


Category Three:  the bet.

Brandon and I had a bet that we would/wouldn't be outta here by Thanksgiving. I won.  We weren't.  What did I win?  A pair of Tom's.  I had to be strategic here bc I asked for three pairs for Christmas.  So I couldn't buy a pair I'd asked for bc I didn't want to have to return anything, in CASE I actually get a pair like I asked for.  So I bought these:

Love em, hate em, whatever.  They are what I bought.  I like them.  mucho.
Category number FOUR:  brother time.

This chunky baby (no I didn't hurt him, I was easy, but his cheeks are so fat, I can see where this might look mean)....anyway, THIS chunky baby LOOOVES his brother.


man.  lotsa pictures.  lotsa love.  give thanks!
