Thanks so much for all of your kind comments regarding the kids and our anniversary. Owen and I had a terrific weekend. We started with the Polar Express on Friday. He was so cute. This is the first movie we have gone to not sponsored by our local Austism Society. Owen swaggered in like he owned the place. We lasted an hour. He doesn’t have any idea who Santa Claus is and he doesn’t really like to open presents…yet! But the train scenes kept him entertained.
I wanted to start my Christmas knitting this weekend. Friday night I wound yarn. It took me one hour to wind the Microfiber Ribbon from Tess Designer Yarns. It is lovely yarn though. If my camera cord wasn’t broken, I’d post some pictures. The scarf for my MIL is a simple double seed stitch with a garter stitch microfiber edge and the Cultivated Silk and Merino yarn. All that seed stitch made me pine for St. Brigid. But I have a few more scarves and hats to get through and one baby poncho.
Saturday Owen and I visited Granny at the shop. He kind of ran around like a wild man but it is kind of boring for a kid. Granny gave him a few butterscotch DumDum lollipops–which only contributed to the running. And we went to the playground. It was a rainy weekend, unfortunately, so much of the rest of the weekend was spent inside with some TV, tickles and trains.
Cameron, Gracie and Kevin had a great weekend in Maryland. He claims we were missed but it was a long drive and I don’t think Owen would have enjoyed it. Gracie chose some cufflinks for Kevin for our anniversary and his birthday. I have to say I was really pleased with the service from Tiffany’s website. We got a cute baby rattle for Kevin’s niece. Shipping was flat rate and came in 2 days.
