There Are Elves About

On Friday, C decided it was time for another trip to the park. No problem. We stepped outside... there was a problem. It doesn't seem possible in California, but I assure you that there was an artic wind blowing. Cold. To. The. Bone.

We wore our coats, ski caps and one blanket (see above). But, by the time we arrived at the park, C's beanie hat had slipped above her ears and she pointed to her cheek saying, "Ow!" Yes, the wind was so cold that it hurt. She definitely needed a hat with ear flaps.

This hat from Angry Chicken has been lurking in my mind for quite some time. So, I sketched. Fleece was cut. A feminine elf cap emerged. Her ears are now covered. Hooray for the elves and their stylish hats.

Cute hat. I still haven't made that hat yet... I should.

My almost-eight-year-old son sucks those fingers ... still. I can't get him to stop.

How cute is that picture?! The hat is great. Am I too old to wear an elf hat? And, it's been just as cold here in So Calif.
