It is April right?

It snowed last night. Granted it only took a little while for the sun to melt everything but still snow?

I took this picture while I was running errands. When I left the house there was snow all over. About an hour later when this picture was taken, there were only spots left in shaded areas.

I bet Gillette didn't think

That their razors would be used for this
I washed Mj's blanket and it pilled just as bad as the first time. At least this time I know what works

Well played

After the mini blizzard this morning with 4 inches of snow, it is now 55 and sunny. Perfect for batting practice- yep baseball season is upon us

I think Mama Nature thinks it's

April 1st. 
This is what it look likes outside my door at 9:30.  It started snowing around 7 when I took my oldest to school early.

Typical day

My little MJ is in the 2's and he has learned a new word

For example:
Me: MJ it is time for breakfast
MJ: no 
Me: would you like waffles?
MJ: no
Me:would you like cereal?
MJ: no
Me: do you want eggs?
MJ: no

He then eats all his waffles and grapes

Me: time to get dressed MJ
MJ: no

Me: here's you cup 
MJ: no

Basically and thing said to him gets a no. It's a cute no except when it's nap time then it can be an angry no.

Houston, I have a problem

But first. 

Yesterday was my birthday. I have made 37 trips around the sun. Crazy. I don't feel old (mostly though I do have my days  when my body has other ideas) I still feel 25 ;). I had a sweet day. Hubby made me a cake

Delish. The kids behaved. I got a really nice surprise in my email from my Aunty. I also saw my mom on Saturday. It was a really sweet birthday this year. 

Now to my problem. I have been knitting along on my sweater and finished the body. Split for the front, which was finished, and was working on the back. I reached into my bag for another ball if yarn and there was only two little balls left. Weird I had a cardigan that was easily 2 sizes too big and now I wasn't even close to being done. I do have extra yarn but something didn't seem right. So I took it off the needles and held it up to really look at it. 

Ok it seemed a little bigger then I calculated. I'll try it on. 
Yeah I'm a little off. I didn't want a sweater dress. Here's more pictures with a shirt for reference a shirt that is slightly too big and what I was aiming for with this sweater.

Yeah. Maybe I should have checked earlier but I figured my measurements were right. Yeah. The sweater is being balled back up for a second try. 

On the plus side my gauge was right. Go figure

Finally a sock

This sock has been my traveling sock. Something easy that I can put down and pick up easily

It took a little longer to do the toe. I knew I was close so I started working on it at home. This morning I got to the toe part and my helper "helped"

Yeah he has fun helping me. It took me fifteen minutes to untangle the yarn. At least there was only a little ball left. It's worth it to knit for a little bit. Now to start the second one
