I spent the day today with my mom & the boys.

We did a little shopping in Plattsburgh, New York.

The boys were pretty good today. They had their moments though.knitincarwaitma
I got a bit of knitting done today on baby shell.
(My mom drove both ways, so I got to knit in the car)

Mack got a 5 minute cat nap in the car until Sean unfortunately woke him.

We met up with awesome Kerry for dinner.
We've been trying to get together for almost 4 years now.
FINALLY made it happen!
Kerry rocks.
Sean had a good time with her daughters at dinner.
He definitely kept them entertained.
Kerry's wearing the "K" scrabble earrings I made her.

Kerry brought along with her my belated birthday gifts.
Aren't I spoiled!?
A package of purple yarn!
I got some Noro Silk Garden Sock, some Catalina Chunky,
some Aslan Trends Invernal, and some Classic Elite Yarns Giselle.

She also made Mack a sweater, she was test knitting the pattern.
I'll see if I can snag some photos of him wearing it tomorrow.
I love it. I love the cables. I love the zipper in the back.

Thank you sooooooooo much for everything Kerry! So glad we finally got to meet!
Let's do it again soon!

We had an easy drive to & from Plattsburgh. It's only about 1 hour and 15 minutes. We would have been home so much sooner, but the border customs dude made us pay duty on all the stuff we bought, since technically even though we declared approximately 50$ a person (exactly what we spent), there is absolutely no exemptions for being out of the country for just the day. (50$ is for being gone for 24 hours from the country). Never have we had to pay duty before on 50$ each. Well, this dude was in a nasty mood or something. That's okay, I don't mind paying the duty, though, with 2 cranky kids, I just wanted to get home. Most of the stuff was for Sean anyhow, we specifically were looking today for size 4 pants, long sleeve shirts and sweaters (mainly zip down) for him. Thankfully, I found him everything I was looking for. I *think* his size 4 wardrobe is now finally complete.

Before I leave you for my bed, as I'm completely zonked, I have some more free points available today for Pampers Gifts to Grow or .com too:


And you can also get 5 more Huggies points:

Cute sweater on Mack! And lucky you with your birthday yarn score!
You must have gotten a grumpy border guy as usually they let you thru with much more with not having to pay. Unless it's different there? Last time we went, we were only in the US for a few hours & I spent about $200 and they waved us thru. Luckily! We have been pulled in before for less though! Seems hit & miss most of the time....!
