Jackson & Jimmie

Posted by Nanc

It’s been a busy camp ’round these parts, but worth every bit. This past weekend, we decided that Jimmie (that’s the Civic Hybrid’s name… for now) needed to stretch his legs, or tires (or whatever would be relative to the car’s anatomy). And since we’ve had a visit to another new boy on our To-Do list, it just seemed perfect to do them together.

A few hours later and we were visiting with this handsome, young man. (Okay, so this really isn’t the best pic of baby Jackson, but it makes me laugh.) JT was one day away from 3 months and is already a big boy. He laughs and smiles and is an all over awesome tyke. We like Jackson. And his folks are purty kewl, too.

Now we’re just waiting for Ramona and it’ll be a grand ol’ time!

More baby love

I’ve decided to “come clean” with you – the internets. I feel that it is time for me to shed this coat of deceit and bask in the glory of honesty, at least for one moment in time. I don’t know if you will praise me for my bravery or despise me for my weakness. But this step is for me, not you. (So get over yourselves.)

A few projects were completed before the end of 2004 that I didn’t get a change to post about. Prepare for a montage!

Benny-boy & snow

Posted by Nanc

So I’m happy

Matty and I did this last holiday, Thanksgiving, up well. Although we missed our traditional turkey-day family trip, I think that we more than made up for it. We road-tripped up north to visit Rachel, Jason, and (of course) baby Benny. (And don’t forget Scout & Rossi-roo, too!)

We had a great, if not too short, visit, and did the requisite eat-until-you-can’t-budge meal. What may be surprising to some of you is that those places up north… well, they’re cold.

Oh, sure, sure. It’s been nippy down in the big D lately. Frost an’ all. But in MN, we got snow. In the foto, jimmi is covered. (His first snowfall!)

It was also Benny’s first snowfall. It’s a good thing that his auntie had knit him some sweaters to wear! Yup, proud me knit that blue sweater (with football buttons), hat, and matching booties.

What? Does that sweater look familiar? Huh… oh – that may be because it was knit way back here for my friend’s twin boys. They had out grown them before I was done knitting ’em. And then they were indented for Jackson, but he was too big and the weather was too warm. So guess what sweet lil’ boy lucks out?!

And yes, the original deal was for two sweaters, and two there are! I changed out the buttons (R & J aren’t really into sports, so the baseballs had to go) and put on some Peter Rabbit buttons. You might recognize this sweater from here!

The knitting probably bored Mr. Bonez to tears, but he sure joined in on the baby lovin’. Are they some cute boyz?

Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything knitting related. I have been knitting though, and getting quite a few Finished Objects (FO). I’ve just been too lazy to take pix or post. But I’m here to take back my knitting blog!

Stand back, world!
