Bob is a get down to business guy with lots of great stories and information to share.
This is the start of Luka Baby's transformation into Luka Boy. It is happening late. By that I mean all of my kids have gottentheir first hari cut when they turned two years old. Not Luka. We took him to several haircuts for Andy and Noah to show him how it is done. We talked to him about getting his hair cut when he turned two. We asked him if he wanted toget a haircut. He said *No!*. Of course. The other kids were thrilled. He was less so. This day he finally said *Yes!!*. We called Bob.
Bob works incredibley fast and efficiently. I am always amazed at what a great job he does while seemingly expending so little energy. He is a true artisan. He makes it look easy. I know it isn't easy. Especially with 35 poundsof squirming, thrashing, kicking, mewling Luka Baby in the chair.
Despite the handy little chair and railing attachment for the capture and stilling of squirming little ones Luka needed to be held firmly in place. One would have thought each little starnd of hair was shreiking as it was cut!
The finished product. Bob could cut the will to nose pick out of him. Tada! Luka Boy!
Now he walks around proudly telling everyone how he is *No baby. I'm a big boy with a haircut!*
I just love this kid. He is so yummy when he isn't picking his nose.

Meet *Snowy*. He came for a short visit but melted away as soon as he could escape the madness at our house. Notice the cute orange nose? Melissa was sure it was important that a 2 foot snowman have one!
Noah had a blast making snowballs to toss around the yard.It is DONE!! Here is a picture of the front (L) and the back (R). It was a perfect day to sit curled up on the sofa to finish my Knitting Olympics project. I used a generic tank top pattern and modified it with the cable panel of my owndesign (though I picked the elements out from Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting Patterns). I added a small section of the cable panel to the back of the tank to provide detail and make the tank a bit more fitted.
Here is your intrepid knitter wearing her creation. Michele down at my LYS took this picture of me. It was one of the only pictures without me doing my interprtation of the Wilson Family Slow Blink. You know the look. The one that makes me appear totally droopy eyed and stoned.
Happy, happy, happy day!

Here are Noah and his buddy Frey. They have built a simple and effective trebuchet. Melissa is in the background watching the goings on with rapt attention. I think she is wondering how to send her brother on a flight too.
I am busy working on and finishing my KO project. Almost there!
