I know it's been a while since I've blogged...Not like anyone reads this thing anyway, though.
But things have been busy what with it being the holidays and all.
Nor have things been very good here on the home front either. I don't know what it is exactly about this time of year, but from October 31st through Dec 31st, things get real shitty here. Bad luck and bad moods.
However, Christmas was real nice this year. I always enjoy the week of though. We went over to my in-laws on Christmas Eve for a small family get together. I hadn't realized Dillinger was so shy until that night. He fell and got a giant goose egg on his forehead right before the kids started opening presents. Scared the crap out of me. He got over it fairly quickly. Maybe it was because of all the action.
On Christmas Day, we actually woke up before the kids did. Maybe we were the excited ones. :laughs: The kids opened their presents immediately. Dillinger kept gasping at everything he opened - so cute! After, we went out to Waffle House and had breakfast and then drove 40 minutes to my parents house. Fun times to be had...
Dia got a children's guitar and drum set. A rocking horse that she wants to paint pink with yellow polka dots. Several art sets and board games. And quite a few educational toys.
Dillinger got the typical things a one year old would get. A piano, a toy phone, toy drum, and a hobby horse.
My parents surprised me this year. Typically, my mom buys me things I need...Like toothpaste, razor, or shit that I may have mentioned I was slightly interested in when I was fourteen. This year though was different...She got me a knitting basket, two knitting books, a random assortment of retro needles, and notions. Squee!
After the disappointment of Dia's legwarmer, I took a bit of a knitting break. And don't ask why it double posted. I'll have to fix that later...It never seems like I take that long of a break, until I really sit back and take a look at it.
My current project is a pair of mittens for Dillinger. It's been damn near a year since I tried my hand at knitting mittens.
Oh, and I didn't gauge, so...we'll see how this turns out.
