I am an auntie and the house is dirty.

I just wanted to take a moment to tell everyone that Hazel Renee Norris, my niece, was born early this morning. We are all very thrilled and I can’t wait to see her this weekend! Although I was supposed to have a baby first (I was the first born so I am supposed to be the first to do everything in my family…) my brother beat me to parenthood. I am sure he is thrilled to be the first and he is also very proud to be a daddy- just in time for Christmas too!

Oh, for those of you that were interested in my sweater purse pattern, I finally scanned it and got it uploaded to the blog today. Visit the purse instructions post and you will see a link to the pattern. Enjoy!

Well, I really need to go try to clean up the house. With my craft show this Saturday I have an explosion of craft junk everywhere in addition to the everyday living messes that I really need to clean up! Wish me luck!

  1. Hi! Just wanted to return the web visit. Congratulations on becoming an Auntie! Now we have that in common! I did reply to your comment at my site and was perusing a little of your site as well. I liked your post about Black Friday shopping and how people really do get quite rude. I did a similar, humorous post about why I Hate the Holidays not long ago. Anyway, your purse and craftiness are pretty neat. I’ll be back to see what things you are up to!

  2. Congratulations on becoming an Auntie. I recently became one also. My brother and sister in law adopted a cute little boy a little over four months ago. He’s now four months old. I’m the oldest also but I do have a four year old daughter.

  3. Congratulations!

    That would make Hazel a Sagittarian, if you believe in that sort of thing!

    For the record:

    With Jupiter as its ruler, Sagittarian energy reflects the benign and regal aspects of that planet, in typical out-going fiery ways. They are optimistic, confident and positive people. The sign is concerned with wisdom, freedom and exploration. But as with Jupiter himself, this easy-going positivity can turn into an imperiousness, impatience, or recklessness. A bright, futuristic, impractical energy.
