Meeting a New Little Man

I finally got to meet Gabriel!! He was even sporting the little sweater I made him. And I must say, he looked pretty awesome in it! It fits him well and his mom, Persnickety Sarah, said she really liked it too! Double score!! Sarah said he should get a lot of use out of it too. That just makes me happy! Thanks for coming out and meeting up with all of us last night Sarah. Too bad he fell asleep on my shoulder and no one else could hold him. I bored him right to sleep!! I promise I'll share him with the other knitters next time. :o) (yeah right, give me that baby!)

Pattern: Baby Yoda Sweater
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (Ravelry Links)

The Saddest Blog Post Ever!

Today mom and dad and Lacey are going back to Kentucky. They got here on Thursday afternoon and my house and been a wild place. We spent Thursday evening at the house. Friday we went to the Amoskeg Fishways and to the Mall of Nh. Friday night we went to Poor Boy's Diner in Londonderry, NH for dinner. It was GOOD! Saturday we did some shopping in the morning and then in the afternoon went to the Verizon Wireless Area for the First Competition. Lots of cool robots there, Jacob and Nathan even got to try the controls for a robot behind the scenes! Sunday we went to the Mall again and then came home and hung out. Brent took all three kids out for awhile and Mom and Dad and I had a nice quiet visit. Monday morning brought SNOW!! I was secretly wishing, OK everyone knows, that the snow would keep them here another day, but seems like the airport is on schedule. As soon as they pulled out of the driveway the blues set in and I was very VERY sad to see them leave. It's hard being the one left when the others are going. Luckily the boys had a snow day and didn't have to go to school, so I have their company today to get me through the day. It's a funny feeling, them leaving. It's almost like I feel like I lost something and I need to run and find it. Panicking that I've lost something, when all I lost is the company of my parents and niece. Anyway.....I'll show you some pictures from the visit. Check out the little remix I did. I couldn't find a good song that I liked and I don't know if you can add your own, so if you don't like the music, turn down the volume :o)
Mom, Dad and Lacey!! I'm going to miss you all terribly!! Call me when you get home! I love you all.
