As for the hiatus, the demands of the kids have been crazy. With my husband's crazy work schedule, an 11 year old, a toddler and a newborn it was impossible for me to find a routine. Especially with the newborn changing to a crawling/almost walking nine month old and the toddler hitting the terrible two's. On top of that our house was "gifted" many small illnesses that everyone couldn't help consecutively sharing. The biggest reason for the hiatus is we found out we were expecting...again. Just when I thought I was on top of this routine thingy. I couldn't figure out why I was so tired and sleepy all the time. All I wanted to do was nap and I never felt rested.
The thought of having three under three sent us into complete panic mode. We are feeling extremely blessed and grateful (I have always wanted four children) but quite overwhelemed. Each stage the children reach we get one of those "can we still keep up with this and have another one" fears. Each time we couldn't prevent a boo-boo or would find crayon mysteriously on the wall it would escalate. Now the panic has pretty much settled and the excitement has started to set in more. After having all these boys, it would be nice to have a little girl. I do have a strong feeling it's a little girl. I'm not sure if my feelings are correct or in the back of my mind I'm wondering what the odds would be of it being ANOTHER boy. Trust me, I would be just as excited for a healthy boy. In a couple weeks time I should know! I usually find out the sex. It's still a surprise to me and I can rest assured being a little more prepared.
As far as the spinning, knitting and crocheting goes I have been busy on my downtime! I have a lot ready to go list in the shop but I'm having a hard time with picture taking anymore. We don't get very good natural lighting in the house. I have a tot who loves to be outside and once he's outside it is impossible to get him back in. So unless I've got everything squared away inside to spend my whole rest of the day outside, I can't get pictures done. Lately I've set everything needing pictures in a separate area so I can utilize time better and take a bunch of different things all at once.

Speaking of garbage, mine needs taken out. Dinner needs started, floors need swept, yadda yadda. Hoping everyone is enjoying their evening!
