Well, I thought I'd finally gotten an outfit done before the baby came, but although baby E was scheduled to come at 8:00 am this morning, which would have meant that I'd done it, she decided to come early, Saturday evening. Oh well, it was almost done. It really is a pretty set. It is from Dale Baby Book 162 and is done in Baby Uhl. I love the way this pattern comes together, very little seaming to be done and the embellishments are optional.

Someone asked about Baby C's sweater pattern, it is from a Leisure Arts booklet, "Knit Layettes for little darlings". It was published in 2000 and on the back it says that it is booklet #3208. There are several adorable sweaters with matching blankets.

We've had another snow storm. At least it looks like winter! I do get a bit irritated with the media, you'd think we'd gotten 20 inches of snow overnight! They get so worked up over normal winter weather! Of course, that seems to be the way of the media-take everything to the extreme and just get everyone worked up. No wonder we have so much anxiety and depression.

As for potential presidential candidates making their aspirations known---ugh!! No one "trips my trigger". It seems like everyone's goal is simply to win, to gain power. What ever happened to being a civil servant, to serve humbly? It's on both sides of the aisle, too. Well, it should be fun to watch them all pick each other apart!

Baby C's sweater is done and just in time, the shower is this afternoon! It makes my daughter's blanket for him. We'll have a picture of that soon. Of course, the weather has been great this winter, up until this weekend! We've got ice already and snow on the way. We're still going to head out, I baked the cakes and have several of the serving dishes, etc. We'll just drive slower!!

Okay, so we've done everything possible to figure out what it wrong with our internet and after a lengthy process of elimination---IT IS NOT OUR COMPUTER!!! I have done virus scans, spyware scans, uninstalled things, reinstalled, checked security, hooked up my son's computer at home and tested it here at mom's. It didn't work at home and it did work here! I'm quite irritated with our internet provider. To top things off, the dryer died yesterday and hubby can't figure out what's wrong. It's only a few years old, so tomorrow we'll see if it's even worth the cost of the service all compared to just buying a new one. So, I've been here (at mom's) for the past two days doing laundry.

Baby C's sweater is coming along nicely.

Happy New Year!! I've been meaning to blog all week, but I've had a raging sinus/migraine headache and my internet is running extremely slow!! I've called our provider and the phone company. I finally came into my mom's to download some spyware.

We had a nice New Year's Eve. Made it to midnight! But, this week has been tough with the headache. I don't know if it's a virus or a combination of other things.

We went and bought new furniture after Christmas. We were able to get a reclining loveseat, recliner, and new tv in our budget. The chair is on order, but the loveseat is home with us and we were able to get rid of the sofa. In a small livingroom with a huge desk, something had to give.

I've almost completed baby M's sweater, she's due any day and I've begun Baby C's. His shower is next Sunday. I've still got a sock to do and I've taken on two more Christmas stockings--thankfully, they are simple ones. I'm hoping to make a scarf for myself, but since it hasn't been cold, I keep forgetting about it.

The weather is really something. It's been so warm and we've only had a skiff of snow.
