cutie pies

it wouldn't be a complete christmas post without a new pic of the doggies!

fun gifts

i got this alpaca yarn and crazy funky scarf from eric's parents. the yarn is so pretty but i'm scared to knit with it and mess it up!

mish mash scarf completed!

i love it. it's so warm and cozy.

crazy christmas coincidence!

my mom and i somehow managed to buy each other the exact same thing at thrift stores in different states. she didn't end up sending mine because she found other stuff so she was able to take a picture of the ben franklin bank twins.

here's gma in her xmas gift scarf!

roxy's painting

christmas gifts!

i opened my christmas gifts from my family last night and i got the best gifts! we did a thrift store christmas this year and it was a fun challenge. although, it didn't even occur to me to look at books for my brother until i opened a book from my parents! oh well. here's what i got...
and here's a close up of the pattern on that stack of bowls from my bro...there are 17 there! time for an ice cream social?

mish mash

i have all these little yarn balls leftover from random projects. so i decided i'm going to make a mish mash scarf out of them. i started last night and made it pretty far so maybe i'll even be done with it this week!

new scarves

these are, naturally, horrible pictures. i really need to work on getting better scarf pics! my buttons are too low so i'll have to redo them. lucky for me my dogs decided to take all the buttons off last night while i was gone! they did my dirty work for me.

geno giving a hairscut

nate was brave enough to let ashley give him a haircut over thanksgiving. geno wasn't totally satisfied with her work so he took over and finished up!

thanksgiving table

my sister always sets the nicest table on thanksgiving!
