animated gif!

Woke up too early today, so I taught myself how to make an animated gif (finally!). This still hasn't stopped cracking me up an hour later. Watch out, I think I'm gonna make a lot of these.

Jack for James. A present for his birthday. I made up the pattern and used Plymouth Encore yarn and a size E crochet hook. It's 6" long.

Just hanging around photographing my #1 model.

Do you like pictures of Amelia? Are you aware I have a whole blog dedicated to this topic?

So, we walk past this nice bend in the river almost daily, and the kids are obsessed with chasing the ducks and geese. They tell me every day that they are going to "catch a duck", and I laugh and wish them good luck and watch them run around like lunatics and of course not catch any.

About two minutes after I snapped this picture, that woman pulled out a bunch of bread and was immediately mobbed by the geese. Otto saw his opportunity and ran up behind the geese and grabbed the biggest one. He picked it up and held it for a split second before it freaked out and started flapping its wings. As we were leaving, I congratulated Otto on finally realizing his goal of catching a goose, and he told me his plan: "next time, mama, you bring bread and hold it and then I can catch even more!"
