Today I had the boys vernissage at their school. I went to Sean’s last year. They have it every April to raise money to get new books for the library in the daycare. Above is the painting Mack did. I love his little hands.
And this is Sean’s collage. I love it. I love all of their work.
There were pictures on the wall behind their table showing the kids making the stuff.
It’s really neat to see the process of how' it’s done.
It takes weeks for them to do this, step by step.
Tonight I switched Jamie’s socks from the 9” circulars (Hiya’s) that I was using to some sock sized DPNs. I didn’t like the way the yarn was sliding on the circulars, and it was driving me crazy. I am not sure how much I like these anymore. They’re kind of useless when you get to the heel part of the sock, so it’s only really good for part of the sock knitting. I’m not even sure why I ever got them in the first place. I guess I’m a DPN girl when it comes to sock knitting…!
FedEx stopped by my house today with a new shipment of Knit Kits (Black ones)! If you are interested in one, I have a few left that aren’t reserved, so let me know if you are interested in one.
I did a lot of laundry today, making sure that I had what I wanted to pack in my suitcase for my upcoming trip was clean. I also wanted to leave Sean & Jamie with no laundry so that they wouldn’t have to do any while I was out of town.
I got an invitation in the mail today for a kid that used to be in the first playgroup I was in with Mack. Have you ever gotten an invitation to a party that you just don’t want to go to? Anyhow, I am kind of glad that we already received an invite to a party on the same day at almost the same time, that we’ve already RSVP’ed to. I have nothing against the mom that is hosting the party, we still keep in touch, but I don’t really want to hang out with all the moms that I blocked on facebook, that were really mean to me, because they’re just not nice people. I’m just glad that I didn’t have to lie that we can’t be there, and actually have a valid excuse. I would hate to have to lie to a friend. On top of it, it’s not as if Jamie can take Sean to his friend’s party (that we are going to, and Mack is invited to as well – from their daycare) and myself take Mack to his friend’s party, as Jamie has a bachelor party that day, which is the entire day. (The day starts with paintball – I really hope Jamie doesn’t come home with welts & bruises).
I’ve been working on backing up all my digital pictures (and files as well). I really don’t want to take the chances of having a problem, so I’ve been backing them up twice. This way, if anything happens, I have a 2nd back-up of everything. After hearing a lot of horror stories of friends and family losing pictures, I don’t want to take any chances. It’s all pictures of my kids & stuff! Don’t want to lose those. Best be safe than sorry.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KERRY! HAVE A GREAT DAY!
