Part Two of My Trip to Phoenix: Just goofing around…

I really hope that everyone isn’t getting tired of hearing about my little vacation. We had a wonderful time as a family, talking about old times, telling the DGCs about their mother’s antics as a child… lots of good memories to share with them. If you are getting bored with the whole thing, just don’t read on.

While we had plenty of fun exciting things going on (trips to fiber/yarn stores and the SWCC,), most of our time was spent just hanging out. The DGCs all had school, so we had to get them to and from school each day, and the rest of the time was just hanging out with them.

One afternoon, DGD1, Eloisa, gave us a sampling of her ballet. After years of dancing, she only became ready to dance on Pointe recently.

Friday we had to get DGD1 into her Halloween costume (Water Nymph) – which required more makeup and hair preparing than anything else.

For Halloween, DGD3 (Gracie) was a Lady Pirate. Very convincing, I think

On Friday, Gracie had a school spirit day at school and got this cute t-shirt and hat… very flattering!

Matthi had to try the hat on for size.

OK, enough bragging on my grandchildren… let’s talk about knitting. While all of this is going on, I sat by knitting up a storm, and in the first two days had finished two Christmas projects.

Jan’s Beret (modeled by Matthi)

And DDIL’s Entrelac Tam (modeled by Gracie)

My last just goofing off picture is the four DGC in front of the house… DGD3 (Gracie) and DGS (Matthi) are off to a friend’s Halloween party, and DGD1 and DGD2 are posing with them…

Well, that’s it for episode 2… I think there are two more good groupings of pics and information. Bear with me, as I try to sort through a week of fun and fiber.

The teaser for the next episode –

Happy Knitting and Spinning!

We crammed more than you can imagine! I didn't even take pics of the Fiber Factory or the LYS we visited. LOL But it was fun and yes, the kids are very cute!

Fun, as always! Sorry it took me so long to get to your blog! I've been working backwards! What cute grandkids!

Hint: Animal husbandry... fiber addiction leads to wanting fiber animals.

Heehee. One is hard enough to house! But it would be nice to have something in common. :)

Thanks, Amy. Only problem is that if they do learn, and love it, you have one more fiber addict in the house...

What beautiful grandchildren!! I'm sooooo envious of your ballerina! I think it's wonderful that everyone is learning to knit and spin. My DD says she wants to learn as well, so we'll see how that

So glad I could make you smile... I was smiling, too. I didn't want to spend too much time playing here, with the kiddies there to spend time with.

And we're glad you did miss us. We missed you, too. I kept looking for comments from you, then had to remind myself you were doing other things, other lovely things, with other lovely people! It was really cute to have you check in with Deb's login and avatar when you got there. That put a smile on my face!
