Helping Mom Knit

Does Henry look like a whipped puppy? We have had several conversations about the baby blanket and Henry's lack of respect for my efforts - his peep's first attempt at something that large.

His favorite place is my lap and that is where Henry parked himself for much of the work.  Now in preparation for the blocking (also a first for the peep) he has claimed it as his own.  Hum. It is cozy, but I don't think that is going to happen.

Henry and Marilyn Help with Pasta

It started as a project for Auntie Joy and Henry's mom. We had thoughts of chicken noodle soup and a whole afternoon to make it happen.  Henry and Marilyn parked in the center of the kitchen from the start - it is always more of an adventure cooking when stepping over the pups is necessary.

As you can see from the intense look in their eyes, they did a great job guarding the goods...and cleaning up tiny dropped bits.

In case you are curious, the soup was delicious!

Chilly Winter Adjustments

Winter is almost behind us.  It is groundhog day! Henry and her cousin Marilyn are looking forward to laying out in the sun a bit, but as you can see, it isn't happening quite yet here in Anacortes.  When there isn't frost on the ground, the ground is soggy wet.

Henry did do the fake unicorn attempt, but that didn't make summer magic happen.  I think maybe he overheard too many Harry Potter readings over the years - he thought he could make it happen.

Some great news, we found another Red Shirt for Henry and cousin Guster.  He is the favorite toy out of the baskets full of goodies the boys play with.  Red Shirt one is a year old and has held up with amazing determination.  One leg has been sewn back on and Gus chewed the ears off, but the squeak still works and the rustle material still crinkles.  Great toy!  Henry does the terrier attempt to shake it apart and it holds.
