I hope everyone had as wonderful a Thanksgiving as the Iknead crew did. As it happens every year, I overate, overplayed with the grands, overtalked and just all around over busied and basked in the company of loved ones. I finished the Scapula scarf (yay!) and worked on Christmas knitting when I wasn’t overdoing whatever it was that I was overdoing at that moment.
Did you know that Stuttgart, Arkansas (home of the Papoose and Sprout) is the Duck and Rice Capital of the World? Did you know that the World Championship Duck Calling Contest coincided with Thanksgiving this year? I didn’t think so. There were so many duck callers around that I expected every duck on the planet to swoop down and pay us a visit, but fortunately, that didn’t happen. There was, however, the obligatory person in a duck suit.
The grands had matching PJs -
L to R
Babydiva, the Papoose and the Sprout
Everyone played nice:
The Sprout showed off her two new teeth -
and showed what the Le Miz poster looked like live and in person
We got a photo of something other than the back of the Babydiva’s head -
And best of all…….
Babydaddy and Babymama announced that Babydiva will be a big sister next year! That’s right – we’ll be welcoming a new grand around July, 2014 and we couldn’t be more excited! Let the baby knitting begin!
