Another thing they forgot to mention in the brochure

Is this a dream?

Nope, it's my family at 5:30 this morning. Meaty is sick and not sleeping well. At five he decided he'd had enough and wanted to watch Elmo. All his screaming woke the Bird. So here they are in their focued glory.

Did I mention that during "Sugarfest 2005 Part I" they got chocolate on the camera lens, so all my pictures came out like this yesterday. This is a picture of ribbon that will be mentioned later.

Speaking of yesterday I was busy. I had a block party. Here's Belle Epoque

While I was waiting for my creations to dry I made these to go on Belle Epoque

We decided the sweater is so long and blue it needed a contrasting sash to break up all the blue. We found a very pretty cream ribbon, but it made the blue look dingy, so we settled on white. You can't really see it in the picture but there is a very nice white flower on white ribbon pattern to the ribbon. Hopefully today I'll get a chance to sew the sash onto the sweater, if I can get a break from the fever twins.

Is The Greatest sick too, or just faking? ;)
Woohoo for block parties! I can't wait to see the finished BE, complete with ribbon and ribbon roses.
Did you wind up starting the second sock all over again?

The Greatest was just up keeping me company. Easing his Daddy guilt since most of the childcare falls on me. He did try to take the kids that morning instead of me, but when Meaty saw him he started screaming "no, Mommy, no, no, Mommy" thus the screaming that woke the Bird.
I did start the sock all over again. I was just going to frog until it was about the same length, but I forgot to mark the beginning of the round. I couldn't find it and without it the toe and heel would not have lined up, making for one uncomfortable sock. So I frogged the entire thing and bitched the whole time I reknit it.
How's the book coming? When can I read it?
