Sorry about the delay in the dailies, but our internet went down for 2 days this week, Twitch Twitch, and then I had Party Palooza to deal with.  Of course, as always, I kept taking pictures, even if I couldn't post them immediately, I still love to capture our daily life on film. These days go so fast, and the boys are growing and changing so quickly, if I don't capture them, I'm afraid I'll forget.


Wednesday was a day of many completed projects.  First, for me.

Back in January, I started something special, just for me.  I have been knitting this 'noro' scarf...though mine wasn't made with Noro brand yarn, because Dang, that stuff is expensive.  But it's so warm.  Of course, as soon as I finished it, and decided to wear it, the weather warmed up.  Ignore the photobombing baby. 

The final product! 

I don't care if it's 60 degrees out, I'm wearing the scarf! 

Then I did some shopping, putting the finishing touches on some party purchases for Sam's party on Friday night.  

I got some beautiful tulips for Sam from Trader Joe's.  They have the prettiest bouquets. And I forget how much I love fresh flowers.  They had them in groups of 10, so I picked up a white bouquet, split them into 2 groups, making 5 for each bouquet for Sam, and they made him smile.  It's going to be a fun party.  

Christopher came home with this present for me.  It's an elephant!  He made it in art class at school, and he said it got into a jungle attack, and that's how it lost an ear and the tip of her trunk.  Honestly, I think it's a girl elephant, because that one giant pink ear looks kind of like a bow.  

Chris says he made this for me, because he knows how much I love receiving these beautiful gifts.  I do, I really do!  I put her in a place of honor in the living room, next to my 'world' pinch pot from last year.  It's almost like my new little elephant is drinking from the watery pinch pot.
