Being able to reach the ground with your feet is key.
Having a daddy to help you get started is important too.
Of course, you've got to have a serious look that matches your determination. (Or fear?)
Then, you're off. Riding like the biggest 4 year old/almost 5 year old EVER!

I think about things a lot. Way too much sometimes. My mind is busy with things I want to do or make, and how they'll turn out. Oftentimes, my thinking gets in the way of the actual doing. And then I get frustrated, and don't DO anything.
After I knit those arm warmers, my mind started thinking again. But this time, it was different. I started thinking about our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus. How we were thought about before we were actually made. They took materials and made US. New. And useful. And beautiful. CREATION.
It is interesting to me to think that in something as simple as making something for someone else, a testimony about our very own creation can be found.

It's my lovely sister Kasey. And it's her birthday today!
Congratulations to AUTUMNTIME!
E-mail me your address, and I'll bring these babies right on over! For some added fun, you should take a picture of yourself wearing TOAST and post it on your blog for all of us to see!

First, I made a pattern of the top of the chair by tracing it onto a piece of old wallpaper. Next, I cut that out and traced it onto the colored fabric. I sewed the fabric together around the edge on the sewing machine. Then, I hemmed along the bottom. Then, I turned it right-side-out and cut up some plastic sheet protectors for the pockets. Last, I made cards with the number for each age group out of cardstock.

Oh yeah. And I got some good stories to go along with the bread. (I probably learned some things I never would have known had I not made bread with my grandma today. One of the most important things: Grandma does NOT gossip. And she does NOT lie.)

One more picture. I think he's got some FUN work cut out for himself this winter!
