I've been able to partially reconstruct some of those 200 deleted digital pictures by the magic of a wonderfully tiresome phrase. "Remember the picture I took of you doing this? Can you do it again?" Though the pictures aren't quite what they were when I first took them (and I'm still about 125 short) at least they're something!
So today I bring you the pictures that somewhat resemble the pictures I was planning to bring you a couple of days after Christmas. (Catchy, isn't it?!)
This is the hat that Isaac requested after seeing me make a hat for Owen. He wanted it to be twirly, but settled for stripes... and a really big foofy thing. (His words.) I made my own pattern and used some Red Heart that I had on hand. It is truly the most bright hat ever... and he's completely in love with it. Mom says that Isaac has worn this hat almost every day since Christmas... even in the house! Makes a knitter proud.
This is Isaac's other favorite Christmas gift. A $2.95 Darth Vader mask from Wal-Mart. He about made me eject some chai tea out of my nose when he came out wearing the hat and mask together. This may be one of my favorite pictures of all time.
The final presents I made for my brothers were these crocheted bags. I thought they'd be great for keeping Legos in while they were stuck in the car on drives with the parents. I put their initials on the front of the bags and of course they were made in their favorite colors. Red for Jared and Orange for Isaac.
I leave you with a picture of me and the hubby, Bryan. I decided that 2005 stunk and that 2006 is my year!!! And what better to celebrate my new year with than with a new hair cut! I'll get a better picture of it tomorrow, but for now, feast your eyes this!
Tomorrow I'll let you all know about those pesky resolutions and stuff, because I certainly have some, but for now I must rush off and put together our new bed frame. 3 months of sleeping on a mattress on the floor is enough! (See, it's a better year already!!!)
