Occasionally when I pick Gabriel up from The Learning Center, he will be sporting a stylish hair do. The teachers tell me that often when they do the girls' hair, Gabriel will ask for pony tails too. I don't mind if I'm not trying to go anywhere special on the way home. Daddy makes them masculine by calling them horns.
We had a good Valentine's Day! I gave the boys their Valentine's Day gifts yesterday. The little guys got conversational heart candies and each got a new video. Garrett got an I Love Airplanes video and Gabriel got a John Deere construction vehicle video. Oh, and each got a copy of an Elmo Valentine's Day board book. I made cut out heart shaped sugar cookies on Sunday afternoon and then put cookie icing on them last night. It was nice to do something creative. I sent a plate to Garrett's school and a container to Gabriel's, and then saved the cutest ones to eat at home. The boys enjoyed opening their cards from their grandparents. Gabriel brought home a heart made out of paper plates with little valentines inside from his schoolmates. And today I got a dozen red roses delivered at work.
I made cut out sugar cookies yesterday and then decorated them with cookie icing and sprinkles. I like to use the cookie icing because it seems to be sturdier for transport. Not to mention it's a lot easier to make decorative details with cookie icing verses traditional frosting.
It's been a long time since I have knit, since well before Christmas. It felt very good to make it to Knitting group today and knit, chat, and have some coffee. I got my bamboo toddler sock out and actually finish the first sock. Sadly, I started this project last April and it's still on the needles. I really like the feel of this yarn.
