more than the stars in the sky FREE PATTERN (link)

I love bedtime at our house. I have four little ones, and they are up at the crack of dawn with boundless energy that lasts all. day. long. For the most part I have a lot of fun with them and they are pretty great kids. With how busy the crochet business has become, and always having a new project on the go I don't get much time to crochet things just for them. So between orders and slower times I get to add a few rows here, make another block there, and eventually they get to have a warm and cozy something too. Back to bedtime: I love it. Not because the kids are FINALLY in bed and its relax time, but because of our bedtime routine. We snuggle, read some books, and tuck them all in with hugs and kisses. That's when my four year old William usually tells me that I'm 'pletty' (pretty) and that I'm the 'goodest' Mom, I get to sing the alphabet with the 2 year old Lizzy, and have a bit more of an older kid chat with my 8 year old daughter. Then comes Ben, the rough and tumble, high energy sweetheart of a 6-year-old boy. He always tells me: "Mom, I love you more than________". It changes every night. I then tell him I love him more than all the stars in the sky. He always replies with "Well, I love you even more than that." And that is the last thing I usually hear from them. They are great kids. And every once in a while, when things slow down, I get to create something just for them. I recently was able to finish a blanket that my 8 year old designed herself. And just a few nights ago I was able to sneak into my son's room and cover him up with his new Mario Star blanket. He was so happy when he woke up in the morning! This is not my original design, you can find the FREE Pattern here.
