Where the Action Is

Pretty's house has seen more action in the last three days than in the whole last month! Army Boy and Wifey-Poo brought the grand-dogs up for Thanksgiving, and this place has been hopping. . .Beagle-Face has been scouting for cats (who have apparently gone into hibernation since the dogs' arrival). . .

. . .Puggle-Jumper has taken up residence on any and all available "lap-space," and under every blanket at least once, since her arrival. . .
. . .College Girl and Army Boy have been laughing together, and it is like music to my ears. . .
. . .and even though my Thanksgiving table whittled itself down to just 4 plates . . .
. . .the boys were appropriately enthusiastic when "Dinner!" was proclaimed ready!
So, Sweetie and I joined Army Boy and Wifey-Poo at the table. . .
. . .and I filled my plate full! (twice even!)
Although the guest of honor did not sit with us at the Thanksgiving table, this 20-pounder deserves special recognition. . .both for the original Thursday meal, and for three glorious days of leftovers!
I did eat a LOT, and so did Sweetie, so he decided that we should go for a long walk in the park on Friday afternoon. I protested. . .but Sweetie persisted, and we went for a walk.

We saw icicles. . .I told him it was cold!
In the evening, we stayed indoors, and I pulled out Army Boy's baby book, along with some other souvenirs I will send home with him, now that he is going to be a Daddy!
Look how attentive he is to his wife and their puppies:

. . .ummmm, perhaps I should retract that last statement?!?
In the end, all of the kids were pretty agreeable to one last photo op this morning. . .you know, for the Christmas card. . .
. . .apparently Boy Friend and Wifey Poo are not as used to the impromptu photo session as my own kids are! But they did re-pose for a "traditional" shot. . .awww, they're all so cute! Even the dogs!!!
Of course, I wasn't quite done, so here's a shot where they were supposed to "Look like you're having fun, now!"
Army Boy came in pretty late, so I guess that's as much fun as he could muster! lol I think I have a couple shots I can use for Christmas! Yay!
And, lest we forget that this is a knitting blog, here is my only "not secret" knitting project:
A little longer than the last time you saw it, and it should grow even more tonight during my TV knitting as well! There is bound to be much more knitting, secret and not-so-secret, in the next few weeks, and I can't wait to show you! For now, I need to get back to the Action!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you are enjoying holiday activities, and enjoying the people surrounding you, and also that you will Knit in Good Health this holiday season!
