(See goosebumps? I should have extended these further up my arm!)

Last weekend we enjoyed the beautiful weather out on the peninsula with our good friends to celebrate their 9 year old's birthday - can't believe how these kids grow. It's fun to see them grow up together.

And this week our oldest turned 11 - huh? really?

Cousin Visit

My youngest said of his 18 month old cousin, "He's harder to watch than I thought!"

This little fall cardigan is missing from my 2009 finished object parade - I think I finished it some time in October or so.

What I was really noticing though are my daughter's teeth. This is what they looked like a few months ago.

This is what they look like now.

This tooth fairy is going to be broke!

Her Own World

Once all the Christmas anticipation and hubbub had settled, my daughter's anticipation shifted to finding out what characters her class would be in the Big Dance Recital in June. Her ballet teacher announced their parts on Tuesday and tomorrow she will find out what her part will be for her tap class - again much excitement and squeals of "I can't wait!" It's so fun to see how much she loves dancing and also how natural her ability is. Good to find something in which she excels where she is not in Older Brother's shadow.

2009 FO Parade!

I was noticing I didn't really post many knitted finished object photos in 2009, so here is a parade of 2009 FOs in no particular order. (There is however a color theme going on here - see it? Wonder what my subconscious was trying to work out through my yarn color choices...)

...12th day of Christmas

So I feel okay posting one last Christmas related picture but then I promise it's back to (mostly) knitting.

Fun outing with the cousins to see the Nutcracker - I think the girls, who both dance, were much more enthralled than the boys, but from the smiling and clapping and bobbing around trying to get a better look at everything I think everyone had an enjoyable time.
(There was, however, some snickering at "Mr. Big Butt" - the nutcracker/prince in tights was too much for the boys to resist making a few comments - uncultured little buggers!)

The Heart of Christmas

My parents were up here visiting for Christmas and while on a little post-Christmas jaunt my daughter asked archigrammy (who is a cardiac ultrasound tech) what a heart looks like. This pear and some coffee stir sticks became the model for a nice little circulatory system lecture there in the middle of the coffee shop - my mother is a funny one and I love her.

Beautifully blurry lived in moments - that's what we have.

Nice to have friends who are willing to have this sort of thing happen in their home!

New Year

A picture a day? We'll see...
