This post brought to you by the letter B!!!

Yes I did watch too much Sesame Street as a child but I LOVED Big Bird!!! Big Bird was my Blue or Dora or whatever that little Carpenter dude's name is. I loved me some Big Bird!!!

B is for BINKY!!!

Who as you can see is still the cutest little girl EVER!!!! She has found her voice. Apparently she does NOT like other people touching her Mommy. Twice she has barked because people touched me. Thank goodness she doesn't seem to mind her Daddy getting near me!!

B is for BEEF!!!

This is what I am cooking for my wonderful husband The Waterman tonight... that other bowl is mushrooms and onions.. and I was worried I didn't know how to be a good wife!


I should have put things in it so you can see how HUGE this thing is!!! It is laying on a couch cushion a large couch cushion. The bag was fun to make after modifying it because I couldn't do the basketweave pattern it called for. It wasn't your typical basketweave. In the future I see this bag carrying many many beers to the boat! As well as towels, sunscreen, iPod, and any other thing we may need for a day on the water. I love this BIG BLUE BOAT BAG now that it is done!!! I may even start the little one that matches to put the small items in so as not to get lost in the vastness of this very big bag!

B is for BOYS!!!

Apparently there is a golf course in my back yard I didn't know about until The Waterman and Otis pointed it out to me the other day. It was a gorgeous day and I was attempting to hang out clothes on the line. Do you know how scary it is hanging clothes on the line when two boys are hitting golf ball in your direction?

B is for BABY BOY!!!

The Dude came home today from vacationing with his Ganee in Florida. He has a tan. I don't. I am jealous. I also think he grew 3 inches while he was gone. It is amazing how a little time away from your child makes you see things that you wouldn't normally in day to day life. My Baby Boy is growing up! I have to wonder if there is a way that I can keep him little forever. I miss the little things he used to say before he knew better. Like Budweiser Stalker Man instead of Buzz Lightyear Star Command. Or one of my personal favorites " I can hear your Harp Beeping." when I would hug him close. He is at an age where friends are more important than me and that makes me miss the days that his life revolved around where Mommy was. I have to say that I do love this age though, he is finally asserting some independence and it is completely amazing to watch him grow in to a young man.

B is also for BAD weather.

I do not have pictures of impending BAD weather. I do have pictures of last time. All we can do is hope that this doesn't happen again!

Just so you know. That is a picture of our FRONT yard, the creek is in the BACK yard!!! I took that picture from our front steps!!

Apparently I had a thing for exclamation points today. It's my blog and I will exclamation point if I want to!!!

Heart Beat!!!

Isn't this just the SWEETEST SOUND??

Let's put this in Perspective...

My dog and the phone are just about the same size!!! She is being such a good little girl, she is trying so hard to go potty where she is supposed to!!! I can completely understand why she isn't liking the paper training thing.. she gets her feet wet! I am sorry but peeing on your own feet is NOT acceptable! Especially for such a little princess. I am trying alternate things and will see what happens.

The infamous "THEY" say that these little dogs are one people dogs but I can honestly say she loves her Mommy and Daddy equally. She spends part of the time snuggled up to me while I am either on the computer or knitting and part of the time with her Daddy while he is snoring or eating. I think she got seriously afraid something was wrong with him yesterday when he fell asleep on the sofa and started snoring. She stood in the floor in front of him whining and then jumped up on the sofa and snuggled down and took a nap herself.

I have also decided that in order to get REALLY REALLY good sleep one must learn to sleep like this!!!

In knitting news.. I have done more rip rip rip than knit knit knit. When I actaully get past row 3 on something I will show it to you, until then you only get pictures of the Baby.

I am also a little worried because the REAL 9 year old baby comes home on Saturday from FL. I am sure there will be good pics of him then, but what is he going to think about not being the BABY anymore. And is it possible to teach a 9 year old to play GENTLY with something so small???

Puppies and Purses!!

Binky showing off Mommy's new bag.

Ok Ok it is ONE puppy and ONE purse.. I am not even sure it is a purse.. it is more of a bag but it is finished!!!

I can not remember what all the little things are for knitting projects so I will just do the two I remember.

Fun level.. very simple knit. Designed by a child for a child I believe but it was for such a good cause and I really like the outcome of the bag that I just had to make it.. Gold Eyelets Silver Yarn and all!

What I would have done to make it my own.. I did make it my own! It has no boobies and I made stripes instead. I think I even did pretty well measuring them so they look ok.

Ok so I really need to get myself a knitting project template badly!

This was just a quick update for today. Hopefully later this evening I will figure out how to add my Flickr badge so you can see ALL the wonderful pictures and also maybe I will figure how to to get this thing to upload more than one picture to a post!

Next kntting project BEACH BAGS!!!

It's a Girl!!!!

This probably isn't the best picture I could get but it will have to do for now. The little thing is exhausted as well as ME! Wow.. what a drive to pick up something sooo tiny! She has a name, The Waterman named her, he went completely out in left field for her name and picked nothing that we had discussed but in his normal fashion he saw her for 5 seconds and had her named. She will forever be now known as Binky. Granted she does LOOK like a Binky so it works well.

I took her in to see her brother this afternoon and she is HALF his size!!! Did you see what I said? HALF!!! She is the tiniest little thing I have ever seen.

We also went shopping today in true girl fashion and she picked out the following:
Pink Collar
Pink Harness Collar
Pink Leash
Iams Smart Puppy food.
Natural Blend training treats
Pink and Blue Lamb (or it may be an ant eater we really aren't sure)
Hot Dog squeeky toy for her brother
Purple and Gold Carrying bag (that truly looks like a pocket book)

I think she did very well for her first shopping experience. And she was sooo very good in the store. She didn't even bite or growl at the three people that said.. Oh what a cute Chihuahua!

In case you are wondering she is a Tiny Toy Rat Terrier, with very large ears!

More pictures tomorrow.. we are going to take a nap!!!

Happy Easter

This is what I woke up to this morning. Actually I didn't wake up to it.. The Waterman woke me up so I could see it and take pictures. It is actually a chronical of pictures because he woke me before it actually crested the clouds. So I was wishing for that camera that I am not buying until I prove to myself I am going to use it enough to pay for it.

Tomorrow I go pick up the "Baby Girl" and hopefully she will have a real name and there will be pictures!
