Make Believe Week

Chelsea from GYCT Designs is hosting Make Believe Week. It's such a great idea and it has been so fun seeing the great things all the bloggers have come up with! We are big fans of playing make believe on many levels in our home. All of my kids have been known to wear a dress up outfit to Target on more than one occassion. And Halloween costumes are used year round and worn until seams burst because the kids refuse to believe they have out grown the item. LOL So needless to say, I jumped at the chance to play along.

I also love to tie in a good theme. ;) And luckily for me, this guy had a birthday on Sunday.

You see where this is going, don't you. ;)

Thomas is Lego obsessed. He builds every single day. He has sat at the kitchen table with his new sets the last two days straight barely stopping to eat.

The Pattern Exam

I am so happy to announce that The Pattern Exam is off and running! I have been working on this project with a great group of bloggers to help you decide which pattern is best for YOU. The Pattern Exam is not about telling you which pattern is best. Nope! What we do is the grunt work. We take a set of patterns and give you a list of the features of each pattern. It's all available on a cute handy chart so you can easily see which patterns have the features that are most important to you. We also give you a personal review of each pattern, what we liked and how the fit was for our child. We are not comparing the patterns to each other, but giving independent reviews of each. You can find out more about our process here.

Our first group of patterns is underwear. To see which ones we reviewed and what I and the other bloggers had to say about them, hop on over to our blog! You can find my review here.

I hope this helps you decide which pattern is best for you! Have a set of patterns you want reviewed? Let me know! Have some features you love in your patterns that we are missing? Let me know that, too! Next month is leggings!
