Picking up where I left off

My brother Jake and his wife Serena couldn't make it down from Alaska this year for Christmas, so they sent the next best thing:

Fifteen pounds of king crab legs. Drool. They were amazing.

Love this picture: Jon and the General preparing a black powder musket for shooting, Kyle tweeting about it. (PS - Jon's sweet denim coat was borrowed from my parent's hall closet. Just FYI)

Amateur video effort:


Family shot inside of a cowboy themed restaurant in Driggs. The amazing food caught me off-guard, considering I had to stare at a tiara-adorned mounted cow head whilst eating it.

Lastly, Corinne asked for an 'amigurumi' book for Christmas. It's this method of crocheting cute little anime-looking creatures. When she opened it up, she could not control her excitement and held up the entire present-opening process to flip through each page. Kyle rolled his eyes and said, "She used to work in finance...." and Jon completed the sentence with, "Now she's crafty". Anyway, I mention it because LOOK AT WHAT I MADE.

That's an octopus with six legs. And a chick. I've never been more proud of myself.


  1. i am very proud of you too! they're really cute. ada's cuter though.

  2. Good job! I am pretty sure there is no way I could do that... me and crocheting don't really get along :D

  3. Wow, those are sweet! Good work on the crocheting.
    Ada is so very cute.

  4. WHAT? you are crocheting without me? and you wouldn't even go to Porter's? LOL. I love the six-legged octopus. I'll have to look up this book. . . hmmm. . .

  5. I wondered where he got that coat from...
