11/23/11 Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? from Ginny's blog

Good Wednesdays crafters! Happy Yarn Along! I am so pleased to join another week.  This week finds me still working on the ribbing for my son's Santa hat. Lots of K2 P2! I can not wait to add the red- it is the most wonderful vibrant red!
We are still reading Harry Potter. What a great choice as a first chapter book- each night we read my other "little" ones (and my husband!) have found their way into my bed for a listen! The week's read is Inconceivable . I saw on a fellow blogger's yarn along(Thanks Joy!) and it immediately went onto my book list. Carolyn Savage (and her husband) was impregnated with the wrong embryo during an IVF procedure. She choose not to terminate and eventually had to hand over the baby to the genetically correct parents- what a terrible heartbreaking decision/choice to have to make. To want a baby so very much and have to(by law) give him away. Reminiscent of another mama from long ago
You might be wondering about the cupcake, there was a birthday in the house!! My youngest little one turned

When I woke him and carried him down the stairs

into my neck he whispered thickly, "Thank you, mama". My eyes swelled and he melted my heart. And that feeling stayed close to me all day. So close to tears with gratitude and wonder all day. His daddy joined us to surprise him for lunch! As if having his Aunt and Cousin there wasn't enough! Mason was so thrilled to have his daddy present! It was a precious moment(when Mason saw him) that I will keep in my mama's heart forever. Mason ate pizza and played arcade games and giggled in a ball pit and climbed in tubes(daddy wasn't able join him in there-thankfully). My Rainbow Boy asked for rainbow cupcakes(with pink icing)

and scrambled eggs for dinner! I hope his day was wonderfully made- just like him.

** With this tutorial that I found at lovely Pinterest I made the shirt myself!
