Things are plugging along here. I've been working like crazy. Dan's work said they might call him back next week, so we'll see!!
Other than playing Big Mutha Truckers and Big Mutha Truckers 2 (boy, it's amazing what you find in the back of the cupboards on the entertainment center), I've been yarnin'. Mostly while Ari has been kickin' the pants off of everyone, including Dan (which really cheezes him off...hehe) in Mortal Kombat 545 (ok, so I forget what one we have...it's about 5 years old, for PS2, if that helps, if anyone cares.) Yes, we are bad parents. We encourage our children to play violent video games and applaud their 5 yo selves for getting 11 straight wins in a row, most of them flawless victories. (Mortal Kombat is nice like that and keeps track of how many times one person beats another, just to rub it in a little more....)
Anywho, Charlie has tooth #6 coming in! Yay for Charlie! He loves brocolli and cheese soup and is very sad it is gone. What is it with my kids and brocolli? They are like the kids on the Hidden Vally Ranch commercial. They fean brocolli. Charlie at 2 bowls of it one night. He wanted more, but I didn't want him to explode. He also, finally for time #2, slept through the night last night! Yay!!
Here is my newest FO. I test knit a baby viking hat. I love this pic of Charlie.
Of course, I know have to make one for Atley. Incidentally, when I googled the spelling of Attila, I found out that Atley is a derivative of Attila. Who knew!?! Here, we just thought we were naming him after someone in the most awesome car movie ever. Dan will be so proud when he comes home. He has always been pushing for the name Attila. I vetoed it with Atley, and with Charlie we tried to stay away from "A" names because we didn't want Melodie to feel left out being the only not "A" child (that, and we didn't want to be confused with the Duggars.)
