I managed to finish the baby blanket just in time. My nephews arrived on Friday morning last week. Although they gave their momma a rather rough time, she ended up with an emergency c-section after 20 hours of labor. Conner weighed in at 5 lbs 2 oz and Chase at 5 lbs 14 oz. They are so tiny it is like holding a doll.
The boys were happy to see the babies although Nate didn't think they were worth his time to hold. The baby blanket got much use in the first couple days, although not by the babies. I went to the hospital to see the new dad curled up under it dozing.
I have been knitting on a couple of projects. I am on the front right section of a lace cardigan for me and I cast on for a vintage style jacket for my Aunt. She bought the yarn and it is NICE. I will have to get pictures soon.
Nate and Ben have been entertaining me the past couple of weeks in the morning. My parents gave me their old electric piano in the spring. The boys have discovered the fun of playing a disc full of music in it.
Nate also learned how to wink. I will miss watching him pull down his eyelid to simulate winking. But it still pretty cute to watch him wink.
The other big excitement last week was McTeacher night. This is when McDonald's gives back to the school and the teachers help out. So we went and the boys got their faces painted.
This was my favorite picture. Ben's tordedo is chasing Nate's shark.
I am totally excited that this week is a short one. I really need to get a jump on my Christmas shopping. Black Friday here I come.
