Going to Knitting

Almost every week Mama leaves us one night and goes to "knitting."  I decided that I really wanted to go.  So, one week I grabbed my purse, filled it with three blocks (because I am not entirely sure what one brings to knitting), went to blow a kiss to Daddy and pat him on the knee, and then headed for the door.  But then Mama said that I did not get to go to knitting.  I was very sad.

But the very next week, my birthday weekend, Mama had a surprise for me.  She said I got to go to knitting!  And then she gave me the neatest thing ever:  My own knitting bag!
I was so excited to go to knitting!  Here I am giving Daddy a goodbye kiss with my brand new knitting bag over my shoulder.
Daddy walked me out to the car.  After he put me in my car seat he wanted to give me kisses and stuff but I wanted to go, so I pushed him out of the way!  I held onto my knitting bag the entire way.
When I got to knitting I met lots of very nice people, and even two little girls named Tiffany and Barbara.  And Miss Loraine came with a balloon (I loved the balloon and I still play with it almost every day), and a bag full of presents (including some more things for my knitting bag), but the absolute best part was that Miss Loraine brought me cupcakes!!!  The only bad thing is that Mama only let me eat ONE.  Can you believe that?!  I made sure everyone else got one, but there were still so many left.  I could have had lots more.
This is Miss Loraine showing me how to use a music box.  It is pretty cool because it plays a pretty song when you twist this little handle.  I can't quite do it by myself yet, but I bet I can by next year! 

I loved going to knitting, and I really hope I get to go again.  Especially if there are more cupcakes!

What My Mama Made Me

Do you remember last year about this time?  I had a birthday then.  Guess what?!  I had another one this year!  Can you believe it-- a birthday every year?!  I thought last year was pretty cool, but this year was so much cooler.  In fact, I had an entire birthday weekend.

But I am a pretty little person and I can only do little posts at a time, so I will start by telling you about one of my birthday presents.  My mama made me this play vest.  In fact, she made it all by herself.  She came up with what she wanted to make, and then she got some paper and did some writing and then she would knit and sometimes she had to pull out some of what she had already knit (she calls it "ripping" and she is never very happy when she is doing it, but I think it looks like fun!), and finally this is what she made me!

Don't I look great in it?

Flyin' By and Sayin' Hi!

We are well.  I think.  Some days it is hard for me to remember.  We have a two-year-old now and my understanding is that she would like to tell you all about her big day.  So once she has her thoughts sorted she will be with you.  In the meantime, Lovebug wanted to flash you all a smile.

The Mighty Have Fallen

Several weeks ago a poplar was blown over in one of the massive windstorms we had.  Nearly two weeks later some of my family came up for a visit and we all went out to check on the fallen tree:
The tree is on the right of the pond, that mound of dirt jutting into the air.
My mom and sister.
It created quite the "beach."
This is not of our fallen poplar but it is a pretty picture nonetheless.

Rest in peace.
