Bug LOVES the movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas. A couple of weeks ago I came across a pattern to make a Jack Skellington doll. (the main character from the movie) She loved it. While working on that, I also came across a pattern for a mask modeled after Jack, as well. She saw a picture of it and said "Oh! I can be Jack!" I found a cool jacket at the Salvation Army and we were done. Easy, but scary, costume. She walks around in it saying "I'm Jack Skellington, the pumpkin KING!"

New friends

Yesterday I was out with my knitting group, finishing this Jack Skellington doll for Bug.

When I got home, I found out that she and her dad made a "new friend", too. First it was to be a robot, but soon became a crash-test-dummy. If you look closely, you can see the face that Bug drew on it.

Now she's a writer...

While helping Bug get ready for bed last night, I spotted two sheets of paper on her floor. I assumed she'd been drawing, but then noticed that they were covered with letters. As I looked more closely, I noticed that they were, in fact, covered in words. They seemed random, to me. I asked Bug what they said. (which is when I found out that while her spelling isn't bad and her letter formation is pretty darn good, her sentence structure is non-existent)

Story #1, according to Bug, says:
Poop is a mess.
Pee is a mess too.

Story #2:
No Nan was mad and he was mad.
I need to go to potty.

New hats!

I just finished the orange and black hat last night. It was going to be for me, but there was a miscalculation, and it turned into Bug's hat pretty early on. She was thrilled. We recently talked about lines: horizontal, vertical and diagonal, so she thinks it's cool that all 3 are on the hat.

I made the black & white one to go with her sweater, but not match exactly. I'm pretty happy with it, but like the orange/black one more.
