and look what aunt helen did!

We brag about our Aunt Helen a lot, but with good reason. This year she outdid herself once again blessing us with her skillfull talent. She knit each of the boys a sweater vest and for Ava a dress and a hat! They are all amazing and pictures do not give her the credit she deserves. Here are a series of pictures we took of the kids wearing their knitted gifts to church Sunday morning. The sun was shining brightly so the lighting isn't the best to show off the work, but you can get the idea of how amazing these gifts are.

I actually like seeing the progression and movement in these pictures. It shows how much can change with these four in the short span of shutter speed.
Here is a picture of Ava and her dress and hat. I love it so much, thank you Aunt Helen!

(not a good shot of me I know)

This is a LOT of knitting! I'm impressed! I love the progression, too- of Ethan and Ava snuggling Nigh-Nigh and of your big boys with their arms around eachother. This sweet family of yours, Amy! I wish we were closer!

Fantastic job Aunt Helen. Fantastic pictures. I really love the dress, being that I have two girls and dresses are so sweet on little girls.
