Almost spring !!!

The weather is so great: it's sunny and almost warm and should stay that way for almost all the week then will go back to our usual greyish skies and some rain ...

My mom turned 60 on monday: we bought her a nice flower bouquet and will go to the restaurant one of these days to celebrate Steb's birthday as well. His birthday is on saturday: F O U R years old already! Hard to believe !!! We won't celebrate his brithday that day as my dad will have a surgery on friday (he has a hernia) and last time, the surgery didn't go too well ...

On saturday, we went to Emma and Steb's school but only Emma went to school. (I wanted to skip but SHE didn't want ) Her substitute teacher is not really nice ... She didn't even greet the parents when we arrived in the class ... The school was open for new clients, sorry students to register for next year. Anyway, I took advantage to take a picture of Emma at her desk. Doesn't she look perfect on that picture? Well, she's so talktative (wonder where she got that from ... ) that the teacher changes her place often ...
Here is BOoo! You can see I started the pumpkin because the black was driving me crazy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (it's me banging my head on the wall when looking at all the black that is left !!! I have nothing against black but it is so SO boring !!!!!!!!!!!!! ) By the way, Marita, I wish you good luck for your next project ( 15 skeins? ) !!!

The weather is the same here too. The weather had been great with sun shining and strooooong wind - 9 to 10 degree.

You did quite a lot on Boo!

BOoo! is looking great!

I feel you about black. It is indeed boring. So is white... I hate stitching either colours. Also, I seem to remember someone has a certain aversion to green... I wonder who that might be :P

Are those dancing Snoopys on Emma's black shirt? Just wondering, 'cause I'm a Snoopy fanatic!

The weather changes are funny this time of the year. One morning we had -18C when I left to work and +1C when I came back. It's hard to deside what to wear. :)
Emma is so cute behind her desk.
BOoo looks great!
