A photo update

So much has happened lately.

First we adopted a cat. His name is Butter (he came with the name). He was so freaked when we got him, that he spent the first week behind our couch. By day 7, he and our dog were helping me knit:

Then Butter got so confident with the yarn, he decided to try it solo:

We went to Cloudcroft, NM for brief break. The aspens were beautiful and the temps were deliciously cool!

We stopped in Muleshoe, TX, which I was suprised to learn has a McDonald's AND a playland! Who knew???

I finished my "car socks" that have been in the car and on the needles since early summer:

The twins saw their first memorable mountains. The pic below was taken shortly after Eli said "these are the tallest mountains EVER!"

We went to White Sands, NM where the boys went sand sledding:

The innocent charming face below posed for this pic after pushing me down a dune when I casually commented that it seemed an awfully long way down....he just. pushed. me. down. the. dune!!!!

Are this face? IMG00170.jpg by you.

I regret that I don't have any good pics on my computer that show the boys in the "real" mountains -- but let me assure you that there was hiking, elk, elk poop, chimineas, and marshmallow roasting all around!

It was a great trip but we're glad to be home!

what is it that pup and kit are helping you knit? The yarn is gorgeous. It looks like it could be a cascade quatro-ish yarn, but I'm sure it's not. and what will the yarn become in your spare time?
