Make way for the king!

Remy's birthday is fast approaching (2 weeks tomorrow!) and we are starting to prepare. He wakes up every day saying 'Today is my birthday!'. I think it may have been a little confusing when we went to pick out party supplies several weeks ago. Instead of a hat I really wanted to make him a birthday crown, an idea I got from this book . At first he was not at all interested in the crown, but for the two days that I worked on it, all I heard was 'Is the crown ready? Is it ready yet?' (Yes, it took two days because I decided to hand stitch it for some reason.) Last night it was finally ready and King Remy wore his crown.

I told Trace that I was practicing sewing felt letters for the day when I sew Remy his homeschooling letter jacket. We were both cracking up!
Here's a baby blanket I finished crocheting this week for a friend due in March. It turned out so cute, and I can't wait to see baby Clara in it!
This last picture is of some biscuits I made today. I decided this morning that I have been in the south long enough that I should be able to make a good biscuit. It's kind of a requirement for a Southern Lady, I think, and up until now mine have been rock hard, too mushy, flat, etc.  So I found a simple recipe (How did I screw this up before? They are so simple with only four ingredients!) and took my time while Halle napped and Remy was train-occupied. They were so good. I wish you were here to join me for my nap time cup of tea!  Happy Friday!
