2 1/2 Years in the Making

Wait, longer than that.  Well, let’s just include the knitting/crocheting time, not the summer when the boys and I actually dyed the yarn.  CHRISTOPHER’S BABY BLANKET IS FINALLY FINISHED!!!!!!!!  And, the coolest part is – I finished it up in the same place I started it – Disney’s private island Castaway Cay.  We went on a DVC member’s cruise last week, just like the one back in September of 2010, and I knew I was almost done, so the blanket came with us to the beach.

Once again, Steve humored me by taking a few pictures of me finishing it up.

Funny thing – the ball rolled towards the water, and I was all “Steve, get a picture of that – it’s hilarious!  I bet there’s never been a ball of yarn on Castaway Cay’s beach before!”

Steve was all “It’s alright everyone – IT’S SUPERWASH.”

And here I am, blanket complete.  Then Steve went and bought me a pina colada.  Well, 2 of them actually.

And for those of you reminiscing, here’s the start of the blanket:

Now, what am I going to do for Nathan’s baby blanket?


I have a 9 year old!

So, in keeping with the backwards fashion, the thing that happened before the New Year’s Eve snowfall was Russell’s 9th birthday.  He picked out a strawberry-flavored cake, and then wanted cherry frosting.  Um, ok then.

Here’s the birthday boy and Daddy sticking the candles on.  And yes, we’re still in pj’s.

I completely forgot to get any pictures of him opening up presents, so that’s it.  Stay tuned for Christmas…
