Christmas Sweaters

Ever year I say that I am going to make sweaters for us to wear in our Christmas card picture. And every year it gets to be about mid-December and my husband starts wondering if the Christmas cards are going to be mailed before December 25th or a couple months later.

Well this year is DIFFERENT! I am more than halfway through the first sweater, which the big sister will wear. I'm going to make a mini-version for Bear. And then make this for myself. All before the September 28th. (Christmas picture-cards are 40% off if you have them done in September.)

Check out the progress so far...

Book Review - In His Sights

I read this review and these chapters online and knew I HAD to read this book.

To say this is a good book feels wrong. It is, after all, the true story of a women terrorized by an obsessive boyfriend with the time and money to follow her to the ends of the earth. But I will tell you that I could not put it down. I read the first 30 pages standing in my kitchen after opening the package the book arrived in. Two days later I finished the last chapter thinking, "What about now?", even since the epilogue was written time has elapsed. What about now?

I don't want to give away too much so suffice it to say that this book is creepy and addictive. Read it.

Bear: I love you noodles and noodles and bunches and bunches.
Me: I love you too.
Bear: Mama, you my best friend.
