So, **I THINK** I'm done crocheting for now for the little ones!  I've done a few photography props and am hoping I can do their newborn photos on my own.  It will probably all depend on what type of delivery we end up having and the healing process....but anyways, here's what I've been working on with either supplies or patterns from etsy shops!!!  Please forgive my photos-I'm having difficulty using my camera and bending over things these days. LOL  Also, a model would have greatly improved the photos ;)

Diaper Cover & Hat Sets (Yarn from Creative Goods and patterns from Little Abbee and Nutella Dreams Late Night Crafts (with modifications)).

Thick and Thin Yarn Hats (Yarn from Heartstrings By Dee and pattern help from Love That! Crochet)

Nice Thick Blankets (Pattern from RAKJPatterns)

Now to get my baby panel quilted (one is done, working on number two) and get a few more meat dishes in the freezer, along with getting some product photography wrapped up and we should be ready....**I THINK**!!!!

Monster Cookies

So, I told an etsy friend the other night I'd post this recipe for them one of these days, so here goes...

2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
3 cups peanut butter
1 cup margarine
6 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp syrup
4 tsp baking soda
9 cups oatmeal
2 cups M&M's (or smarties).  I like to use the mini baking m&m's best although they are hard to find in Canada!
2 cups chocolate chips

Cream sugars, peanut butter, margarine, and eggs.  Mix in vanilla, syrup, baking soda and oatmeal, mixing well.  Then add M&M's and chocolate chips.  Bake at 350°F for 7 to 8 minutes, do not over bake.  (They are supposed to be gooey in the middle).

These are a favorite at our house!

On another note, I'm still looking for help with recruiting more votes!  I seem to have dropped to second place over at so if anyone would like to help me get more votes on #21, that'd be much appreciated.  I won't be online as much anymore due to partial bed rest orders from the doctor.  Guess I'll be coming up with creative things to do while lying in bed and resting.
