Birthday Weekend Highlights

It started with hanging out with the Little Guy!


"Hey, look what happens when Auntie lets me feed myself!"


Swingin' at the park

Fabulous birthday dinner with my other family

Learning to play Boogie on the Wii (note the disco ball!)

And, for the record, yes, that cutie in the pink kicked my butt! She can dance!


Today dad got one of his mudslide thujas for his birthday.

While we watched Elizabeth, The Golden Age (good, but not great like the first, another one of my favorites), Puddles and Bailey snuggled up into one of their favorite spots!

Oh, and my birthday Woolgirl purchase.....if you can't wait for pictures, here's a hint (and if you look below where it says "customers who bought this product also purchased" you'll see the rest of the goodies!). Best part, it was all paid for with "destash" money!!

However, whenever I open the closet, yarn still falls out (literally). So I did a bit more organizing and I have some new "donation" yarn and "destash" yarn to post this week! Now when Disco comes to visit and tries to find all my stash, well, at least it won't be jumping out at her!

At the back of the stash were the makings of a Purl Scarf that I've wanted to do for awhile. I may just cast this on this week, despite the too many projects going already!


Tomorrow, technically today already, Snowboarder and Rowan are in charge of the official birthday fun!

Have a great day!!!!!!!
