I'm going to write a good blog today

OK Ezekiel is taking a nap, family is all gone (tear & sniffle), and I decided that today is just a knit/pump/take-care-of-zeke day, so I am going to write a good blog finally!  With lots of pictures!  Yay!  

First of all, we had a great time with family.  Lots of fun, lots of bananagrams, lots of yahtzee, unfortunately no scrabble, though.  Lots of cheesecake (oops), lots of laughing, lots of love.  My mom was here last week until thursday, and then Daniel's family was here Thursday until this morning. 

 Here is Ezekiel with his Grandma Luanne!
Mom started this quilt when she was pregnant with me.  She finnished the cross-stitching for Ezekiel, and then I sewed it together (this is before it's finnished).  It is so cuddley and nice!  I love it!Here is Ezekiel with Obama!  I must say, although I am not thrilled about Obama's plans for our country, it is very exciting to have the first black president.  What a momentous occasion!Mom worked on our wedding scrapbook while she was here, too.  Then Daniel's family came.  Here is Ezekiel with his Grandma Teresa and his Aunt Jasmine.  Daniel, Jasmine, Grandpa Winston, and Ezekiel.
This is our new little sister, Sophia.  She joined the family in July from Khazakstan.  Why is this underlined??  We were so glad to finally meet you, Sophie!
Here is Ezekiel with his Aunt Martina.  This is the first time she's ever fed a baby!We had a wonderful time with all the family!  We miss you all!  Come back again soon!  

And finally, of course, this is my current knitting project.  The sweater with the flowers is the one that babies keep outgrowing (it's now for Mercy, although I forgot to send it back to KY with the family).  The one on the needles is London's new sweater.  I think it's going to turn out super cute!  I plan to have it done this week.  THIS WEEK, darn it.  And mailed by FRIDAY!!
Alright that's all for today!

We are expecting a BIG snow here today. I already have about 5 inches in my yard....(3 old snow, 2" new snow)....and through Wednesday morning we are supposed to add 7-9" more!!!

Can I come back to warm, sunny Texas???????

I love you so much. Keep growing, little man!
