Weekend Lovin'

Saturday morning soccer - my two little soccer champions ready to score some goals and play with their little friends.
I love how they love soccer.

Saturday night soccer - watching the big boys play and cheering on our team. I spent most of the time helping in canteen, but managed to sneak out for a bit to cheer along with my boys. It was a lovely night, we caught up with some friends there later on and their kids too.
I love hanging out with my boys.

Hmmmm, Sunday morning breakkie, oh how delish. My little one, digging into his pancakes, oh and yes, this is the plate/bowl he insisted on using. (Don't you just love those placemats!! lol - I made them myself *giggle*).
I love our lazy family breakkie.

A game of dominoes on the play rug. My little Minnie just lives in these chenille pants. He used to wear them when he was 3, and he still wears them now, although they are more like long shorts than pants. They have gotten quite thin now, but that doesn't stop him.
I love comfy pants and dominoes.

Ok, ok, yes, more yarn, but it's not my fault (again!!) you see I needed to get some yeast and semolina and garlic, cause I wanted to make a foccacia bread and, I asked if anyone wanted to come to the shops with me, they didn't, so I thought that if I was shopping alone, then it would be ok, to check out spotlight and see what knitting books they had, cause I am looking for a pattern for a cardigan/vest sort of thing, they didn't have what I was looking for, but, I found these lovely colours (above) and the yarn below was on SALE and not just a little bit on sale, it was 40% off - on sale type sale, and it's soooo soft, and my neck is soooo cold and I have no hair at the moment, and I have an idea to knit a thing that will keep me warm and 40% off, now come on girls, you just can't argue with a good sale.
I love snuggly yarn.
I love snuggly yarn on SALE!!

Here is my spot in the loungeroom - yes - my territory has been marked.
Two of my current projects, I have 15 of those oatmeal coloured squares, and today, my little Minnie was snuggled in the chair with me asking if I was doing chain. Oh joy!! Maybe I will have little fingers to teach crochet to after all. He remembered the chains, and I love how he says 'trevles' for trebles lol too beautiful.
I love this photo, it reminds me that I am one lucky girl, I have children to create for, I have hands to create, I have a home to decorate, I have money to purchase the yarn.
I love my home and those that dwell within.
