Ok, I'm back!
Ah, back home. Kitties are dang glad, doggies too. Sheepies, goats, llama, and chickens are fine I think as long as the food train keeps delivering every day.
The trips were good, we went to Michigan to visit Nate's family for Christmas and had a nice time. I only ended up knitting three Christmas gifts this year, and they were well received.
A scarf for Nate's grandma:
Endpaper Mitts for Nate's sister Lisa:
And a scarf for Nate's sister Sarah:
Handknitted items are always a hit in Michigan in the winter.
From Michigan, we headed to the Yucatan in Mexico for 8 days and had a wonderful trip. We stayed in a little bed and breakfast in the jungle run by a cool couple that have a non-profit organization that helps local Mayan women, snorkeled at a marine national park, birded, went to awesome ruins, and ate some dang good food. I'll post a few posts of the Mexico trip later! For now, glad to be back.
Big news! I'm 11 weeks pregnant today. This baby so far is great, we saw him/her the other evening, moving around already with little arms and legs, and a strong heartbeat. Next appointment is in a couple of weeks with a regular OB office, I've graduated from the specialist Dr.!
