Yesterday, Sean's Winnie The Pooh chair got assembled. I love it. It's soo damn cute. My sister got it for Sean as a baby shower gift. It was a little retarded to put together, but in the end it was put together. Phew!
And of course today I put Sean in his new chair for a photograph before we went to the Pesach Seder at Jamie's Aunt & Uncle's house. I think Sean is just too cute in overalls!
And here is Sean at his first Passover meal. Not that he really can eat matzah or anything. (Unleavened bread used to make this cardboard like thing that Jewish people eat instead of bread for 8 days during Passover because of the lack of being able to bake bread in Egypt many many years ago...) The Kippot Sean is wearing - is the one I crochet for him while I was still pregnant.
Sean and I at dinner tonight. He was in a really good mood tonight, and he met some cousins for the first time tonight as well. He even made 5$ for his cousin finding the Afikomen. Jamie was actually the one to hide the Afikomen this year, and it was hidden inside Sean's baby carrier inside the sleeping bag thing we have attached to his car seat carrier. The kids had a hard time finding it... no one thought to look inside there! Tomorrow night, I doubt the Afikomen will be hidden, as the youngest "kid" besides Sean, will be 19 years old. I think we're all a little too old to go in search of hidden matzah! Maybe Sean will be the only one to make some money tomorrow night. If there is Afikomen hidden, maybe I'll help him search for it! Tonight though, his cousins are about 7 and 13, so they had a grand ol' time searching for the hidden piece! (A nice passover tradition!) Sean's got 5$ in his piggy bank now, but I think I'm going to go to Toys R US and pick him up one of these. It's currently on sale for half price 3.97$ online and in store, so I'll go on Wednesday and pick him up one. I'll be near a Toys R Us on Wednesday.
So I've done an assesment, I have Lemonade (x5), Grape(x1 but I hate purple, so this ain't happening), Black Cherry (x2 - which will probably get drunk), Tropical Punch (x4), Strawberry (x7), Ice Blue (x2), Lemon-Lime (x2), Pink Lemonade (x1), Orange (x6), and Cherry (x11). I've received some from Lainie in California and some from Bren, who has participated in my stitch marker swaps in the past and in the current one too. I am thinking of trying to get my hands on some more Pink Lemonade since I only have 1, and some more Lemon-Lime (green color), sinec I only have 2 of those, to do some serious dying of some yarn. I have 2 balls of Regia to be dyed, 2 balls of Lanett, and some Cascade 220 in an off white color that is dyable. I am going to see if I can find anymore Cascade 220 - it's color number 8010. I am going to call the Yarn shop in B.C. tomorrow that I ordered some Cascade Quatro from - to see if they have anymore 8010, to add into my shipment if they havent shipped it yet. I want to have a blast dying - the weather is getting warmer and it'll be a blast.
What else is going on here? That letter mailed on March 22 from Toronto, STILL HAS NOT arrived in Montreal! I don't get it. We're going on a week and a half. From a place that is a 6 hour drive from here. It better arrive tomorrow.
I received a package from one of my group members in SP10 today with some leftover sock yarn for Sean's blankie. It's going to be started this week. I need to make my camera case and an Ipod cozy for Jamie & one for my sister, and start Sean's blankie. Sean's blankie is going to be quite the project. I hope to have it finished before he starts getting "attached" to a blankie...! I wonder what he will attach himself to. A blankie? A teddy? Hmm... Me - I had 3 baby blankets (never attached myself a teddy), BUT, I did have 3 sussies on me at all times. I'd have one in each hand, and 1 in my mouth, and the one in my mouth, my parents say I used to twirl in my mouth, and I'd rotate them from hand to mouth, etc.... Cute... wonder what Sean's thing will be? I won't post who it was from, so that her spoilee doesn't check out her blog and discover that it's her sending to them, incase this person talks about SP10 things on her blog. I will send her a thank you tomorrow via email- but I'm thanking A.M. here on my blog - and after SP10 is over, I will thank all those in my group whom have donated leftover bits to Sean's blankie project! Toss me an email if you want to help out this project and donate your leftover sock yarn bits that you don't know what to do with - for Sean's blankie! My email is in my sidebar!
Alright, got more spring cleaning and laundry to do tomorrow, so I'm out of here for the night. I've caught up on my blog reading for my SP10 group, and cleared out my bloglines for all the other blogs I read (boy do I love bloglines.com).
I'll update my blog weight loss countdown tomorrow, but I'm down another half a pound, so that's 8.5 lbs lost since about the beginning of March. Almost 10 lbs down - I'm sooo freakin' proud of myself. I'm not 100% following my "lifestyle change" (I'm not calling it a diet) during Pesach, because it's just too hard, but I'll be back to normal once the seders are over and Pesach is done...
I'm so very excited, Jamie's step-family is doing Easter on Sunday this week - so Sean will get to go to his first Easter party. I love Jamie's step family...they are so great, and so celebratory (is that the correct conjugation?) and we do Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas with them. Half of Jamie's step-family celebrates that (I'm not sure if that makes them Catholic, or Protestant or what not...) but they are part-Italian, and most of them are half Jewish as well, because Jamie's step-mom, her mother was Jewish and her father was Italian. (Great combo - My step-mom is a great cook - Italian and Jewish dishes! The best in the world!)
That letter better come from Toronto tomorrow. And my amazon.ca order with my Yarn Harlot's new book... I've been waiting too damn long for it! It finally says it's been shipped!
