Bees. Beavers. All Those Busy Animals...

Yeah, that's me.

Henry and I are in the middle of reading a Magic School Bus book about how protons and electrons in clouds attract and form lightning, and at one point the kids turn into electrons and ride a lightning bolt down to Earth. That's kind of how it feels around here! There are teacher gifts, holiday events at school, house cleaning and a million other things going on as we get ready to head out of town for the holidays. I'm looking forward to some down time, but I know I won't be able to sit with my hands still very long. Thankfully I'll have some personal knitting, the last two Twilight books and 3 little boy beasts to keep me jumping.

So here's a little show and tell...

This is my last custom of the year! This mama had them made to give her husband at/after the birth of their last baby (who is currently in ze belly). Their song is "Danny's Song" by Loggins and Messina ("Even though we ain't got money, I'm so in love with you honey..." [I originally typed that 'homey' instead of 'honey', which brings a whole new vibe to the song]) so she wanted something that had to do with the song, and two hearts and a chain. Here's what I came up with:


The first bars are the actual music for Danny's Song. I'm so glad she likes them and I wish them a super smooth birth!

Okay, now I'm going to post this super secret picture, but you can't tell Henry about it. I finally got some time to sit and knit him something for Christmas. As most of you know, he is the hugest Star Wars fan ever, so:


I know what you're thinking. I missed my calling as a super model. You are intimidated by my posing ability. I am expecting Janice Dickinson's phone call any minute now.

I also made some family gifts, which I probably shouldn't post since my family reads this thing.

Tomorrow there are TWO holiday events I can't miss up at Henry's school. He says he's doing the hokey pokey in the gym at 10 (a must see) and then the holiday party/Kindergarten presentation is at 1:30. Why they sceduled them so far apart so we have to go up and come back twice is beyond me. And yeah, I don't know what the hokey pokey has to do with the holidays, but I'm in.

Now I have to see if I can crank out his teacher's gift before 1:30 tomorrow afternoon...

"I'm so in love with you homey"? Crackin' up in da bathrobe here. Will sing that song that way forever.

Also, R2D2 hat pics really do have a certain something.

I love that hat! R2D2 has always been my favorite since I was a little girl and first watched Star Wars- Henry will love it!

Oh my gosh! That hat - that hat!!! Seriously I need to make one of them for my son. He is also the worlds biggest Star Wars fan at the tender age of four, ha! That hat really rocks. Nice work - and those pants are just amazing too!
