So, I’ve been pretty scarce here lately haven’t I? I know, I know. Bad blogger! No donut!!! …mmmmm, donut…
I have just been so crazy busy and have so much to write about that for the last week, I haven’t known where to start. I STILL don’t know, so I’ll just pick a point and go from there. Hopefully it’ll make some kind of sense. Doesn’t help that I’m on Vitamin V today…uh, anyway…
We had a very distinguished visitor for the holidays!
Since we spent Christmas night at LAX (don’t EVEN get me started on how dirty and and disgusting and uninviting the United Airlines terminal is there…gross!) picking up Chrissy and Marina , we celebrated Christmas with my wonderfully big and loud and obnoxious family on Sunday the 28th (which was also my birthday), where Marina took a great liking little Levi…
…and he to her.
Budding romance? Somehow, I don’t think so. For Levi, it’s all about the food. Marina had it…he wanted it. Simple as that. But it was still cute as hell!
How’s THAT for a good-looking family, eh?
Then on Monday, we took the day off to celebrate my birthday at on of my favorite places…
See Claudia, Fickleknitter IS a real person! Alter-ego my ass!
…and then we went to Build-A-Bear.
After which, we went back to California Adventure and caught a few of the shows. And it was then when I learned that grandchildren are life’s way of giving you permission to dance like a lunatic and not get looked sideways for it. I had so much fun! But man, was I sore come morning!
After working up quite an appetite, it was time for ice cream!
Now, some of you might be thinking…hmmmmm, that blanket looks handknit…and VERY familiar. And you would be right!
That’s the Pinwheel Baby Blanket with the edging from Ingrid’s Bridal Knot Shawl that Oma La made for her back in June of 2007, and that Marina can’t go anywhere without. Can’t say I’m not a little jazzed at that!
Chrissy and Marina have since returned to their home in New Mexico, but I think their visit was the best Christmas gift ever!
