We Made It!

We left at 7:45am and arrived Michigan at... you ready?

3:30AM

Yes, you read that right! And here is why...

We started off from CT and got to Utica to see David's grandma around 11:30ish. From there, we were greeted with assorted cookies made by grandma Nancy. There were butter cookies, ginger cut outs, ginger snaps, peanut butter chocolate fudge, chocolate chips cookies, and much much more!

By then, I already finished three more ornaments, one for Mom, which is gold and hanging in the van already, one is for Terry, Page and Colin, and one for a friend.

Inspired by Costumechick, my next project was Vine. I bought a Jaeger Alpaca when I went to Farmhouse Yarn the last time and they had it for ONE DOLLAR! It is an older ball with old label, but it's 100% alpaca none the less. And while we are driving to Michigan, I made some progress... A lot of progress actually:



I should be able to finish this today between wrapping presents, putting up the tree and cooking.

If you are observant, you can see that I'm wearing my new wedding bands - no we didn't get married yet, but it didn't come with a box or anything, and knowing me, I'll probably lose it, so the safest thing to do is to wear it until we get home.



We picked up the rings after seeing grandma. So far, I'm really happy with the way it turns out. :) We continued with Rt. 90 and hit Buffalo, and we detour up to Niagara Falls - why not? We were practically there! Plus I've never been!!!



It is absolutely breath taking!

The dogs think so too:







We left Mick and Vanilla home since they are too active for Colin right now.

Well, off me go to get things going...
