MY 4th and your 5th and packages too!

How was your 4th of July celebrations? Mine started out slow but ended with a big bang! LOL I'm a dork I know.. We went to a church picnic here's a pix of the booty playing in some ice. It was super hot!

and then we went later when it got dark (around 10) to see the fireworks here's bubba with her friend waiting for the show.

I have to admit that last years fireworks left me wanting... But this year I was pleasantly surprised they were great! Here's a pix of the bub and her other friend watching the fireworks...


ok so I've been knitting and look can you tell what this is?

why that's the heel of my DH's sock that I just turned...Slow but sure progress it only looks interesting b/c it's self striping... St stitch BORING! But hey here's what it looks like... The beginning was fun as you can see a used the go team pattern from my 6 sock KAL group...

and then my DH went to check the mail and look what I saw on the return label of a huge box...

yes I'm so excited! Look what I got!

she sent me a hilarious card, a book, beautiful yarn an wonderful stitch markers the bobbi bear patter sooooo cute! Not only that she also sent stuff for the KIDS!
she's a keeper! LOL she's the best I tell you!
ATTN SP: to show you how much the girls like what you got them I took pix as proof....
here's the booty playing with Bambi she liked him right away... He immediately went into her mouth and she proceeded to bang him up and down on the floor! That's a good sign!

and here's the bub though she pretends she's not interested she's super excited she just loves the color wonder books!

hey do you see that that sneaky sock snuck in the pix... LOL really I forgot to put it away after my DH came home with the boxes! Oh how I love mail...
I got a box from my dear friend Kelly... She's the bomb ya know.... She sent me Spongebob squarepants socks

check out the spongebob's on the back of the sock... Bear with me I'm taking these pix myself... I think I will wear these socks forever....LOL

and star hooks for the shower curtain I love stars! I have a tattoo that's a star.. And my kitchen is decorated in stars... My engagement ring my dh's gave me is a star shaped diamond... Oh the memories.....ahh I feel oh so special today...
hope you guys had a wonderful weekend!
happy knitting and crocheting...

Glad the gifts were a hit all around. The sock yarn I sent is amazing and it stripes up beautifully! It's amazing that it's even hand-dyed (not by me, of course). I hope you enjoy it all!

Love,
Your Secret Pal

What a great SP gift you received! And you got the wonderful book I've been hearing good things about! Your girls look very happy to be getting something, too. I love it when our SP's send something for our children, too!

BTW, Thank you for visiting my blog and trying to leave a message back on the 4th of July. I don't know why it wouldn't let you leave a comment the traditional way. Thank you for going to the extra effort to email me. :)
