Everyone had a great time especially the kids after we got all the new toys out. The favorite seemed to be the microphone stand that my aunt bought Josh. It not only amplifies but also has a cool strobe light on the front and has buttons for applause and music. Thank you very much and we will thank you again at Christmas with an appropriately obnoxious gift for your grandson:) But seriously, the kids thought it was great and we were treated to a free concert that included such hits as the ABC song and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." Now if we can only convince Josh that it is not necessary to put the mic in his mouth while he sings we'll have a rock star in the making.

But wait, there's more! Josh's actual birthday isn't until tomorrow and he still hasn't gotten any presents from us or his grandparents so we're going to have pizza night (one of Josh's favorites) tomorrow night and more presents. Oh, and cupcakes too. We're treating daycare to cupcakes tomorrow and I have some leftover so we'll blow out candles on a cupcake tomorrow night since we had cake over the weekend. Should be a good time with lots of assembling for the parents.

But wait, there's still more! I've actually had time to stitch over the last few weeks even though I haven't gotten any pictures up. It's been all Watergarden all the time over here and I've made some good progress.

The colors are just a bit washed out from the flash but pretty close. I'm pretty excited to actually have the center portion done and have been slowly working on the left side. It seems to be stitching up pretty fast but I'm afraid I'm going to have to pack it up for a few weeks so I can finish my Christmas ornaments for the year. I don't really want to but if I don't put it away now no one will be getting an ornament this year!

Oh, and one last thing- if you haven't yet, you can still sign up for the 2012 TUSAL over on Daffycat's blog. It was so much fun this year that I've already signed up though I need to make a better effort to actually get my pics up on the new moon. Maybe I'll have to add it to the sidebar to remind me.
