January Mid-Month KAL and snow!

I love this KAL! I think it's one of the prettiest yet. The picture isn't the greatest, but you get the idea. The variegated did so well too. We got a little snow this weekend! It hasn't snowed in 4 years. It didn't snow much, and we were hoping for 2-4 inches, but it was still fun. It didn't snow enough for sledding or snowmen, although my brothers did manage one or two snowballs, much to my chagrin. :) The three of us went back in the woods behind our house. It's all hills, so it isn't easy, but it's worth it. We went as far as the swamp, a place we haven't gone in three or four years! There was just enough snow to make it beautiful. Here's a picture of our front yard yesterday.Kirby was so cute! The last time it snowed, he was a little puppy, so he didn't really know what to think. The snow was coming down in huge flakes when we let him out, and he looked surprised at first. He kind of pawed at it, sniffed it, then jumped because he wasn't expecting the cold. He started running around, and at one point, he just kind of sat and looked at it. Of course, he had to eat some too.

Random knitting and etc....

I know, it's been awhile, but I haven't been doing much worth writing about lately. I've been enjoying making Tribbles, I've made three so far. The colors don't show up too well, but you get the idea.
I also went back and did the August mid-month KAL. I was out of town for that one, but I just love the pattern, so I had to go back and make my own. :)Outside of knitting, I'm helping with another CYT play that's coming up. This one is Tom Sawyer. My brothers are both in it. I'm really excited about it! I enjoy helping. There are more details about it here. You'll be hearing much more about it soon, trust me. Tomorrow is supposed to be their costume rehearsal, but it may snow. It hasn't snowed here in 3 or so years, (at least, not more than a millionth of an inch) and the one time it does is the day we have something really important! I love snow. I wish it would, but I hate for the rehearsal to be postponed. If it does snow, I'll post some pictures in the next few days.

I know that this is somewhat overdue, but better late than never! I hope you all had a great Christmas! I sure did. It was much better than last Christmas. (I woke up Christmas morning last year with the flu, so anything would be an improvement!) We went to my grandparents house, and stayed for a week. It was so much fun! We went to the Christmas Eve service. My cousin Reed played a "bull" in the children's Christmas play. (Well, he couldn't be a cow!) He was so cute. I suppose I'm somewhat biased. :) Here is a picture of the whole family. I got a Phantom of the Opera songbook, (I've had more fun with that thing!) an MP3 player, a DVD player for my room, (I've had my parents old TV in my room for a year, but haven't been able to use it) and many other fun things, but I enjoyed giving at least as much as I did getting! I love watching everyone open their gifts from me. Here's a picture of my brothers and me with our presents from each other. (My brother Jamey got me Ratatouille on eBay, but it took the seller a month to send it)
After opening presents, we ate breakfast, and went out to ride scooters; Reed and Will got their own for Christmas. Will is only 2, but you should see him go! That night, we went to my aunt and uncle's house for dinner. We had a wonderful time! Here are a few pictures from that.
The rest of the visit was great. I was sad to leave, but we're going to see everyone again this weekend, and it was nice to come home. I love being with all of my family! Happy 2008 everyone!
