Fair warning, I am back!

 Fair warning, I am back! Can't wait to start looking thru everyone's blogs. It will take awhile to get all caught up. We took about a 14 road trip (with 2 kids & 2 dogs, yes, we are nuts) to visit my mum and my little brother. I guess I should stop calling him little now that he is 22 yrs old and towers over me. lol Everyone had a nice visit. The kids loved spending time with my mum and their uncle during pool time, roasting marshmellows, and swimming under the stars. I do not have many photos that I can share on here from the trip but here  are two of the view from my mum's back yard. She lives on a sound.
The kids have started another school year. They school at home thru a public online charter school. It works for our family & we love it! My son is in 4th grade & my daughter is in Kindergarten! Hopefully this will be an awesome year!!

Labor Day 2010 was fun for us. We went to our city's parade. Huge hit! Then off to visit with my grandparents. The kids love going to their house. I helped my grandma scan some photos & burn them onto a disk. It was nice looking thru black and white photos!! I do have a photo to share from the visit. My grandpa made this little gnome door & windows! Isnt it cute?? He is pretty talented when it comes to woodwork.

On the knitting front~ I have been working on baby bibs(I know shocking) for all my friends having babies. Also on a few items for Crafting Sunshine. A group on Ravelry featured Crafting Sunshine for their Sept. charity. Keep out this post for more information! As always, Happy Knitting!

Pretty pictures of the clouds on the sound.

That gnome door and windows is darlling. We have big cottonwood trees in our back; that door would look great on one. Too fun.
