This weekend our sweet little cheeky Henry turned five!


He is such a funny kid! Always smiling and being goofy, he loves his brother, and has a tender heart with just a touch of mischievousness.


Happy Birthday Henry! We love you so much!




Rain and Sun

March 30, 2014

Our Spring weather has been variable, to say the least. One day rainy, the next sunny. This weekend was no exception.

Saturday was a rainy day, but instead of spending it at home, we decided to go on an adventure.


We went for a quick hike into Redwood Regional Park to walk under the redwoods.



Dos catching a ride back to the car.


Sunday, on the other hand was beautiful and sunny!


We headed to Fort Funston to introduce Dos to the beach!



I’m not sure he knew what to make of it.



It is supposed to rain again tomorrow which is great, we need it.

FO: Rikke for me!

I’ve been home sick for a few days which gave me a chance to finish up my Rikke.


I probably should have gone down a needle size or two as it is a bit baggier than I would have liked, but I think I’ll see how I like it for a bit before deciding on its fate. I’m just not sure if I can pull off a slouchy hat. But I’m wearing it now, so that’s a good sign.



Getting some snuggles from the dogs!

WIP: A Rikke for me!

March 26, 2014

I’m turning the yarn that I frogged a while back into something for myself!


I’m making a Rikke Hat!


This pattern calls for a Twisted German Cast-on which is a new technique for me. I love learning new stitches, the problem is that I can never remember them the next time I want to use them!

Linking in here and here!

Life with two boys and two dogs

Its been a few weeks since Dos entered our lives and much like what happened when we got Peso, it has been an adjustment. And also just like last time, we have had a couple of moments where everywhere we turn there was a dog peeing on the floor, kids fighting over a toy, the dogs fighting over a toy, kids making messes, dogs making messes, repeat.


The boys are having a lot of fun with Dos. He is a really snuggly little dog and the boys love to cuddle him and carry him around.



And Peso and Dos are a good pair. Both energetic and playful, they have the best time running around after each other. Peso is much faster and the alfa dog, but Dos gives him a run for his money. The energy level is really high at our house!

Luckily it means that they also tire each other out.


Aww! What sweet puppies!


FO: Trolls and an update on goals

March 21, 2014

Hey! That rhymes!

In January I set out to accomplish some knitting goals and to get motivated I joined this Knitting Resolution KAL. Here’s an update of what I’ve done so far:

1) Go through knitting stuff to organize and take stock. Done! I went through all my yarn, needles, etc… and got organized and updated my Ravelry project and stash pages. Phew!

2) Finish up wips that are languishing or frog them. Finished up my Random Ripple Blanket


and this little hat:


and frogged the cowl that I had made to go with these mitts. It was my own “design” and although I wore it a few times, I never really loved it. But I love the yarn:


3) Make something for myself! Hopefully in time for my birthday! 

Oh well, I didn’t get around to making anything for myself for my birthday, but I do have some ideas. I got sidetracked by life, a new puppy,  and these


They are the Troll Hat and were super fun and fast to make.


Our new pup!

The story of how we got Peso, is very much a part of who he is and why we love him so much.  A dog who wandered onto Sam’s school looking for someone to love him, who found a family that fits so well. He really has been a wonderful dog who has become such a special part of our family. So how could Sam resist when another cute, sweet, cuddly puppy wandered onto the school who looks remarkably like Peso.


They look so similar that we think they might be brothers.


The dogs have been having a lot of fun getting to know each other.


Our house has been a whirlwind of puppies and boys since we got him.


Hopefully things will settle down long enough to pick out his name…
