We are home, back in NH. It feels good to be here. I miss my parents and family, YES, that's a given! But I came home to some nice surprises, so that helped fend off the blues (so far).
My Secret pal 10 was
Mo from Canada. Check out those Ketchup flavored chips!! I have NEVER seen those. She also sent me some more cool yarn from Fleece Artist in Nova Scotia, Canada. YUMMY Colors!! Smarties for the boys. Needle point covers, Hand made glass beads, Knitting Rules book by the Yarn Harlot and yes more Chocolate hedge hogs (yeah, they're gone, didn't make it in the picture). There were some stickers in there too and a Very cool Alberta Magnet for my fridge, which isn't in the picture because it's ON the fridge!! :) Thanks Mo!! You were a great SP10!! Please keep in touch I also finished a second hedge hog. This one didn't turn out as BIG as the other one. I some how lost count while while knitting and wrapping and turning AND watching a movie **AND** spending time with mom! Too many distractions, but he's still cute and Jacob named him Sly. Since we've been home all other "pets" (stuff animals) have been tossed aside and Hedge Hogs RULE!! Jacob's been carrying around Splinter (the first hedgie) and Nathan carries around Sly. Too Cute.
I am also working on a pair of Waterloose socks. I am using the Socks That Rock yarn that Mo sent me in a previous package in the Sedona colorway. OMG I love this yarn! It is knitting up deliciously!
Also in the mail from my good friends Vickie and Mary. I have chatted online with these two ladies for over 10 years!! I've had the pleasure of meeting Mary back when I was pregnant with Nathan, but have yet to meet Vickie. I have had two chances to meet Vickie, but things got in the way and I never got to meet her. :( One day!! Vickie made the Table Topper and Mary made me 4 coasters that match the table topper!! I LOVE THEM!!
And Lincoln, YES we did get our Lincoln back from Melissa and her daughter. I still wondered even when they dropped him off today if they'd really leave him with us! LOL I distracted Melissa with some swag from KY, and she said that Lincoln is welcome at her house anytime. I think Lincoln will like that. Earlier this evening we were looking for Lincoln in the house and couldn't find him. We finally did though. On the bottom bunk in Nathan's bed sleeping with the pet pigs. How friggin' cute!
Now if someone could explain why all my links are at the bottom of the page instead of the side I'd appreciate it. I want my picture back up at the top beside the most current post. What gives??

Glad you liked the gifties. I was late getting it off to you because I searched and searched and searched for a decent magnet. Had to finally check out the souvenir gift shop at the big mall.
Glad to hear you had fun with your parents as well. Mine live about a 9 hour drive away - needless to say our visits aren't as frequent as I'd like.
I'll be adding you to my blogroll and checking in often. Take care.

Love you all.
