Happy New Year's Eve

I guess one last post of 2011 is appropriate.  This one will not have any knit content, but lots of cuteness.  We have Darius ringing in the new year with us, but I anticipate we will all be asleep in our beds when the new year rolls in.  Tomorrow is a new day and Darius is full of energy each day.  This is Darius' recommended libation for New Year's Eve. 
High on the cuteness scale is Darius in his Jump and Go.  He loves to jump.
He brought his exersaucer with him because this is another of his favorite activities. 

There will be knitting content in the new year.  Happy New Year's!

Two Year Socks

Drum roll, please.  If you look back to my November 3, 2009 post, I was reporting that I started knitting a pair of socks.  I must be the world's slowest sock knitter because I am just now reporting those socks as finished.  Yippee!!!!  Actually, I have to be in the mood to knit socks - thin yarn, small needles.  The good news is that the socks are finished in time to enjoy them this winter.   They are very colorful so will be perfect with jeans.

I have am amazingly cute photo of Darius, but will not be posting that particular one since I think it is being featured on Darius' family Christmas card.  Don't want to spoil the surprise of that for those family members that follow my blog.  
No blog post is complete without a picture of the little Dumpling.  He was about 16 weeks old in the "Daddy's Backseat Driver" photo. 

Here is a photo of Darius wearing the Dinosaur vest his Grandma made for him.  I believe he liked it.
