We had so much fun! I have not laughed that much in eons!!!! Stitches West itself was OVERWELHMING!! The people, the yarn, the patterns, the stuff!!!!!! Picture is of Casey and Jess, the god and goddess of Ravelry!!!! Seeing the endless Hello my name is.... buttons was cool. And the garments..the things the women had knitted and wore was humbling. So of course I had to buy yarn and a lace shawl pattern. I also bought gorgous, to die for, Socks that Rock yarn - Rockstar and Christmas Balls!!! (Pictures to come!)

Hello one and All!!!!

Off to the dog park. Of course Max thinks the center is for him and Baby thinks she needs to be there also!! The result is..... Precious knows where her place is sitting on mommy!!! She hates the sweater I made for her! Well, that is until we actually got to the dog park and it was freakin' freezing!!!!!!
Honey and I will be celebrating 5 years of togetherness tomorrow!!! It doesn't seem like five years. We have had our share of battles but mostly we laugh! Our middle daughter actually gave us a lecture because parents weren't supposed to laugh so much!!
I started school this past week, computer graphics. This is my classroom. Those macs are so cool!!! Honey said if I get an "A" she will think about getting a mac for me. (It's a debate because she is a Dell certified tech among her many talents!!!)

Here is Baby and me!! Aren't we pretty? I think I look pretty good for almost 43!!! (Actually, it turns out I am about be to 44!!!! - So I guess I still look pretty good for almost 44!!!)
I had to show this picture, Honey is under the dog, that's her elbow sticking up in the background!! HeeHee!!! Apparently it's Babys world we just get to live in it!!!

We had snow. Well, almost, missed us by about 500 hundred feet. But close enough. Here are some pictures:

Well, that's all for now! It's softball/baseball season, so pictures (lots of 'em) are coming. And I'm going to Stitches West in two weeks!! I cannot wait!!!! Eight of us Knottyknitters are going!! A girls weekend - NO kids - and yarn?!!!! Could life be any better!!!!
