There's been no sunshine here for the past few days so I haven't been able to get any good pictures to post to Ravelry. I was going to wait until we got everything settled in and put in proper places but it occurs to me that I'm not that organized and that might not ever happen. So I have plans to take pictures of all the knitted goodness on the first sunny (or semi-sunny) day.
Tyler was playing outside a few days ago and one of his friends moms was talking about dogs. Tyler was telling her about how great Jake was and Jake this and Jake that and she asked what kind of dog Jake was. I didn't think he'd remember but without skipping a beat he said "he's a chocolate factory." Hee hee. Chocolate Lab = Chocolate Laboratory = Chocolate Factory.
We still aren't done Christmas shopping and I am having no fun with all of this. The Christmas baking is going along swimmingly. Too well in fact. There are baked goods all ovah the place up in here. Not so good for the weight loss efforts but eh, it's Christmas and I'm not actually eating very many of them.
