Happy Super Bowl Sunday.
My Snow men!! The boys were all suited up for snow yesterday and I heard no complaints about being cold or wet!! We had a blast!! Don't they look so happy! I just love that picture!
I was toasty warm too with my knitted headband, even if I do wear it upside feels better that way...around my chin and such :)
We went to the park and took Jacob's snow board. Oh My Gosh did he ever do a great job! He went down the hill two times and I think only fell once and that was at the very beginning getting his footing. I think a couple more times and we'll get him to a ski area with a bunny slope! Nathan and I walked up and down the hill with them a couple times. I had to piggy back Nathan back up the hill. Needless to say I got some cardio in FINALLY! haha!
This is a shot of me and the boys at the park. Kinda reminds me of my tattoo with a kid over each hand. When Brent took the picture I was just trying to make sure that the boys didn't try and jump off while standing up there. I just think it's neat!
and my hubby! He got his snowboard out too and went down the hill a couple times too with some success. We think that he may need a longer snowboard.
Do you remember the jaywalker socks I posted sometime ago that I started for my mother?? Well I frogged the buggers! I switched over to the knitpicks pattern Mock Croc Socks. It's a free pattern on their site. I'm also working on a pair of Fetching mittens from This is my first time trying cables. It's kinda cool. :)

As I type this I'm watching the Super Bowl Half Time show. I must say ... I love the song "Purple Rain" . I've forgotten how much I liked that song. I miss being in a marching band too. When I watch half time shows for the superbowl it reminds me of the time I was in Tempe, Arizona at the Fiesta Bowl and the fun we had at the half time show there with the Marching band from Alabama. SO FUN!

I am trying to make the Fetching Mitts also but it is not going so well. I've restarted them 4 times now. To calm myself I just did a swatch (yes I started without one). Now to start attempt #5.

Awwww... your kids are so cute. You know, I'm looking for some kids to draw/paint a picture of a fire truck or something fire-related to post on my blog.... =:)
