My sister loved her new hat. See this posting about it. .
My dad's vest is finally done! It fits and he loved it.
When I look at these pictures the song, "I'm too Sexy" runs through my head:)
In case you want details here they are: Pattern is mine made up as I went. Yarn is Cascade 220 in Midnight heather used I think about 4 skeins, needles sixe 7 US circular. Size about 36 inch chest.
I made most of the gifts this year, these aprons were for my nieces. They also got baking related items. Cookie mix, cake mix, wooden spoons, you get the picture.
These 2 are for my nephews W and T:)
My little sis also made a bunch of stuff. Noley got a "guy". He has been sleeping with it which is always the true gauge of whether a kid likes something or not. If they can't go the night without it near them they love it.
T got one of these for his birthday because it is so darn cute! I got an order from my nieces for one each once they saw this:)
The Birthday party was for the 2 boys who are 3 weeks apart. We went the easy way out with a DQ cake and a pool party. Here they are with their helicopters from Auntie B.
T is a daredevil and went down this slide over and over again face first then backwards. No Fear!
All in all it was a good time if a little hectic. Looking forward to a quieter Christmas at home and a visit to the other Grandma and Grandpa right after.
Here is hoping you all had the best holiday weekend too! And a low stress, happy, fun Christmas to come.

Here's a shot of my trick or treaters, a mad scientist, black cat and Darth Vader were hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa.
That's Miss M's poncho I made a while back. I blogged about it here.

Insert this conversation into this picture.
Me: KD go stand by your sister. Get Closer! Noley come on get in the picture honey. Miss M smile. KD get closer to your sister!!
KD: I don't want to stand by her!
Me: OK Noley get in between them. I'll give you a sucker.
Miss M: (smiles nicely)
KD: I'm not standing by her!
Noley runs away.
Note the folded up sleeves and the fact that this "shrug" goes down to my butt. Yikes! I mean I knew it was big when I was knitting it but was in complete denial since I was in such a time crunch. I plan to make it again with smaller needles and possibly finer yarn.

Horseback riding on the beach.
We stopped here to rest our legs, it was like an oasis.
My favorite night out for dinner at Blu. Eating on the beach with my girls, I felt like I was in a movie. (My sister on the left, me on the right)
Cabarete, Dominican Republic
Common entertainment there (no chickens were hurt, they have spur covers)
A Street in Puerta Plata
