Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
(Last verse of the Star-Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key 1814)

Also, I got that baby sweater vest finished (f-i-n-a-l-l-y).

I’m just not as fast at knooking yet!

And, because you were so patient with me, there’s a cap to go with it, too.

The white things on the shoulders are flat buttons, so the sweater can go over baby’s head easily.

After procuring a white onsie, this set will be ready for giving.
