Question of the Week #11

"What's the best thing you've ever received in the mail?"
Wow, that is a hard question because I have loved everything from secret pals, past and present, swap partners, etc. I remember placing my first yarn order online from knitpicks, when I got that it was pretty exciting!!!

Life and Knitting...An Update (picture heavy)

Where to start.....Well let's see one of my cousins got married, congratulations to Michael and Michelle

I bought a new car, isn't it cute!! I think I need a name for it so if anyone has suggestions.... It's a Mazda5 and it gets great gas mileage (bonus)

I also had a birthday which started out crappy but turned out to be quite nice.
My daughter and her friend baked me a cake:

Don't laugh, it was delicious

I also received some flowers, handmade by my DD's friend's mom (thank you Jeanette)

I received a birthday package from my secret pal that day too! Thank you again SP! Here is a picture of it's contents, what fun...I love it!!

I finished some Monkeys out of Lace Wing Sock in the Tropical colorway

Phew! We're almost there...

Finally, poor little son of mine has been to the ER 2 times in 2 weeks, first time was a possible growth plate fracture, so he had a splint and crutches, that turned out to be negative. This time he was cracked on the head with a piece of wood that had a screw in it. All of these things are accidents that happened at the neighbors'
house. Here are the pictures of the last visit, don't look if you are squeemish:

Here is my little man waiting for the numbing medicine to take effect so he can get staples:

Here are the staples

I think that about sums up what I've been up to, never a dull moment around here lately!
