The pups couldn't be more excited for halloween,
But dad was excited to carve this little green pumpkin that came out of the garden all on its own! (we didn't plant any pumpkins this year, what a trooper!)

Here he is,

And with the lights off!

Of course it's a bulldog!
And kid count for 2010 so far, 0. But it's only 6:30, I guess there's still hope.

Knitting season is in full swing, Tommy finished his second pair of mittens already. This is the second pair for me! What a treat to have someone knit something for me.
And here is another pair of socks I finished earlier this month, Burning Stripes pattern, awesome pattern!
Apparently it is not possible to get a picture of knitting without Dorian's face, butt or foot in the shot!
I love them so much I am hoping to do another pair for Tommy, handspun out of this fantastic alpaca! Soooo soft!
Dorian loves Madelines birthday present, and grabs it quickly whenever she is not around!

Birthday Fun!

Maddy turned five yesterday! What an exciting day! She allowed us to have a family party tonight, and is planning to "hang out" with her friends tomorrow night, hope she doesn't stay out too late!

Here's the birthday girl,

And her guests, daddy and Dorian,

Mmm, that cake looks tasty!

Faster, faster, get in my belly!

Always the fashion plate, Maddy preferred to wear her hat to the side,

Is there anything left on this plate? ANYTHING????

The big present she's been eyeing for a year....Stegasauras...

At the end of the night, she got a little out of control with the party hats....what a girl!
