Everyone Needs an Aunt Marissa

She is a knitting GENIUS!  And she doesn't send us the stereotypical, "Look what Aunt Mildred made for you guys!" gifts, either.  She sends us awesome stuff!  See for yourself:
The kids were so excited that it was snowing, so they could wear their hats out, immediately.  And in the one place that we went, we were asked by three people where they could buy these adorable hats.  (Did you zoom in on the picture to see the blanket?)

She also made some really cute onesies for Claire, but I forgot to get a picture of those.  I'll get some when Claire has them on.

Marissa, you are so talented.  I have no idea why you spend your time making cool stuff for my kids, when you could be making a fortune on Etsy....BUT we couldn't love them more!  You are amazing - thank you so, so much!  We love you!

Wow, this post made my day! I'm beyond flattered :) Mostly I'm glad the hats fit and were liked by all!

HOW ADORABLE! I want an Aunt Marissa. If only she could knit me looking cute in a hat! Those are the most adorable hats, and the blanket is beautiful. No wonder people were stopping you.

Holy cats, those hats are cute! You're right that Aunt Marissa could be making off like a bandit on Etsy with these hats!!! I don't blame your kids for clamoring to wear them cuz they are ADORABLE!!! (And homemade gifts always deliver extra doses of cuteness through the love crafted in, don't you think?)
