Random Stuff

First of all. I got a new camera! I am so excited about it. I had a panasonic Lumix, that I got in 2005. I love it, but the lens is really getting beat up and I have been wanting to play with depth of field and the Lumix wasn’t doing it for me. I wanted to upgrade to a DSLR. Andy’s brother had one (Nikon D90) and was willing to trade Andy for a laptop. It was like the gift of the Magi. I was going to sell my hair for an external hard drive and Andy was going to sell his laptop for a digital SLR….oh wait a minute…

Now we have depth of field. Yay! And yes, I did make that sweater.

Here is a better picture of the sweater:

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Pendelton outlet with my friend Gillian. I picked up these three giant blanket scraps (they weighed 5 pounds). I sewed them together and then lined the blanket as a gift for Andy. He gets cold (being from the South) and often complains that the afghans I make aren’t big enough. He has been requesting a “Man-ghan). I am too lazy to knit one, but still he likes it a lot! It’s crazy warm, crazy crazy warm.

I also made a bunch of binky holders. Davy loves her Binkies and the holders we got at Target were getting kind of gross from being dragged along. Also you can’t put them in the wash. These are washable and we can color coordinate with her outfits (yes I admitted I do that).

Otherwise Davy girl is doing great. She is SO ready to walk. She has been standing on her own and pushing off starting to walk. Her independent streak is truly amazing. We started taking music classes and she loves to dance and clap her hands. Also we have her in driver ed.
Don’t worry we won’t let her drive drunk
