  1. Look at that sweet toddler head. What a great picture.

  2. The knitted beard post made me laugh. Thanks for the giggle and for pointing to my Homemade Gift Ideas post.

  3. Hi Abby, for some reason, the past couple “weekend links” posts, the links haven’t worked for me. This is only happening with your site and yet I see other commentors so I know the links must be working for other people. Any ideas?

      Oh no, Kika! I don’t know what could be going on. I just tried them all, and they worked for me. Is anyone else having problems with them?
