Space Invaders

Anybody who has ever owned an Atari or played old school arcade games will easily recognize the little green men on Middle's latest hat.

Space Invaders! I used to rock at this game as a kid.  Middle LOVES video games, I literally have to pull him away from them after his 1hr time limit is up. So when I came across this pattern on Ravelry I immediately thought of him and since his old hat was worn and ripped, he was presented last night with this brand new one.   He adores it. He's even been wearing it to bed. He refuses to take it off.  It's nice to see someone you love enjoying the things you make for them.

On the homesteading front, we are continuing to plant the starter seeds for spring.  The kids have each picked out their own seeds to grow this year from their grandfather's farm and from our own collection here at home.  Their garden was a huge success last year and they are really excited to start up again this year.

The kids (and I) really enjoyed the break in the winter weather last week.  The boys spent ALOT of time playing with their wagon and collecting "treasures" in the yard.  Ah, to be young again...

Happy Valentines Day!
