Violet was very excited to wear her new skirt to school yesterday. She wasn't happy that it didn't spin enough. But she's got seven other skirts that spin. I thought I'd make something different. I finished up three skirts that are like the skirt she wore when we took pictures with Jackson and Gillian.

Not the greatest pics this year. I'm not sure where her neck went. I don't usually buy the package. I'm not a fan of the faux backgrounds. I did buy one 8x10 of the above pick to put in her book.

I commissioned my friend at work to make some sweaters for Violet's doll for christmas. What she came up with was AWESOME! Look at the attention to detail. I wish I had the patience to knit and crochet. Can't wait to give these to Violet. BIG thanks Cathy!!!! You can check out her process photos here.

This one was knitted.

This one was crocheted.

Over Halloween weekend we also went to Chuck E Cheese. I'm not a fan of places like this but Chris really wanted to take Violet. We went on a friday and got there as soon as they opened. Violet loved every bit of it.
We coated ourselves in Purell as we left. ;)

I haven't posted any Violet art work in a long, long time. This summer she wasn't into doing much drawing or coloring. Maybe because we spent most of our time outside. But lately she wants to color all the time. She's even drawing on her chalk board a lot more. She's moved from stick arms and legs to what we call sausage limbs.
She's really into details right now too. The above drawing is wearing glasses and I love the tongue sticking out. It's also a girl because the dress is a triangle.

Violet told me this one was Daddy because of the spiky hair. Haha!

This one is a lion. Looks like he has one peg-leg.
