Wow it's been a while...

Just wanted to say Hello and Happy Holidays to everyone. I also wanted to say Hello to the lovely knitters of Knitty Bloggy Baby Bumpers. My Husband came and surprised us in California from Baghdad. And while he was home we uhh.....well you know and after he left to go back to Baghdad we found out that I was pregnant with # 3. Due in August. We are soooooo excited! I have 2 wonderful and crazy little boys and I hope that the new baby is a happy and healthy addition to our family and I also hope that is is a girl. :) But we will be happy either way. I just joined a blog that focus' on growing baby bellies and baby knits. Seeing as I have only been knitting for a year now I didn't knit stuff for my first 2 kids when they were little. So I am really excited to start knitting things for this one. Its also a web page for people who love knitting for babies in their lives. Even if you are not pregnant and love to knit baby things see if you can join. It should be fun.
Things in California are good. We had so much fun while my husband was here. We took the boys to Disneyland and went shopping, lots of shopping. Now that he's gone back to work we are just kind of hanging around the house and enjoying time with our family. In knitting news I have started a couple of projects. I received my sock yarn from Yarntini and I love love love it. Can't wait to start knitting beautiful socks with it. I still have one hank to wind but want to buy a ball winder...or maybe I'll get one for Christmas. Ha ha. While Travis was here he and I wound one ball up with a hand mixer. That sucked!! I ended up winding it by hand. I Don't want to have to do that again!!! Its a yarn experience that we can both look back on in the future and laugh at. Here are a couple of pictures. Talk to all you later and keep you all informed on the knitting and baby news in the future. Happy Holidays to everyone. May it be filled with love and all things knitty.
