Double the Cuteness!

One very nice benefit of going to Arizona this past week for work - was that I was able to see some of my old friends.

Even though I missed my kids terribly, I was wishing I had more time to see everyone.

Just 4 short months ago, my friend Ashley had twin baby boys. I couldn't wait to meet them and to see their whole family. They went from a family of 3 to a family of 5!!

When I first met Ashley.. she was a single girl. Look at her now.

I made super soft flannel blankets for the boys. Since they live in the desert, I didn't want to make something too warm. They are self binding blankets - if you've never made one before, you need to consider them next time you need a quick baby gift. Here is a great tutorial. They are so easy to make.

I miss these babies so much right now!!! They are identical and so happy! Benjamin and Ethan... but I seriously couldn't tell you which is which. 

Here they are snuggling with the new blankies. I told their Mom that when I come back next year for their 1st B'day, I expect them to be dragging these blankies around as their favorites.

And here is Kennedy - she is so sweet. I brought her a Moose from Minnesota. 

The moose is wearing a wool sweater with a moose on it. The irony made me laugh.

Here are some better pictures of the blankets. 

This is my new "go to" baby blanket.
