Hey there, 2012!

Now that the holidays are but a blurry reflection in the mind's eye, it's time to move on to the changes that are sure to come for 2012.  I have said before that I do not make resolutions to mark any new year, but that doesn't stop the changes!  After all, just look at 2011!

Snake and Dollface got married, and joined the wall of fame at our house.
New knitters were "born" very late in the year, 
and more "established" knitters knit for miles and miles!

Peanut was born, and is now nearly a year old. . .
and there was much knitting (my feet are soooo, soooo warm)!

There was good and bad, happy and sad, but overall, I think 2011 was a darn good year.  I know that change will follow me as long as the world turns, and I think I am ready.  Just for fun, I am also going to shake it up a bit with a little change of my own. . .

A short history of the Blog Names. . .
A while ago, I changed the DD and DSIL names to Snake and Dollface (College Girl and Boy-Friend just were not cutting it once that engagement ring hit her finger!).  Over time, Mr. Pretty has also been known as Sweetie and Pop-Pop, depending on the photo and circumstance.  Pretty has always been Pretty, because (of course) she is Pretty!  There's also Beagle-face and Puggle-jumper, and the nameless cats, not much to worry about there!

Now it's time to address Army Boy and Wifey-Poo. . .who will not always be in the Army (although I am not sure when that change will come).  Now that they are parents, and they get many more mentions in regard to Peanut, I think I have finally figured out what their permanent (shorter and easier-to-type) blog names should be (it's only taken me three years!).

Since they were small, I have thought that my kids are out of this world. . .for a short time, some of my boy's friends even called him an alien.  (Truly, I think I may have missed something at the time, and I was never quite sure how to respond to that, but it was what it was.)  With that in mind, I would like to reintroduce you to my son and daughter-in-law, the parents of Peanut, Mork and Mindy!
For you younger readers, I include this link. . .it's just the opening credits and theme song, but you can look up more (just Google Mork and Mindy), if you are into that kindof thing.  Nano! Nano!

And now it's time for me to run off and knit.  I would hate to start 2012 feeling as far behind as I felt when I said so-long to 2011!  I know it's bound to happen, but I want to enjoy being "ahead of the game" while I can!

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!


  1. OK this is too funny because One of my girls at school just asked me about Mork and Mindy...Now she(& the rest of my class) can't stop saying Nano Nano! and Shaking hands like Mork after I showed them how...Then I googled it and showed them pictures (they vaguely recognized Mork as the Guy from Jumangi) and I pointed out how I rocked those rainbow suspenders when I was their age...Which they being 5th graders thought was ridiculous! Serioully we are on a strange common wave length!

  2. Too funny! I was one of the few kids in my class who could the handshake, at least at first. I think that helped cast my geek-dom in stone. :) Do Army Boy and Wifey-Poo know they're now Mork and Mindy? :)

  3. Michelle, we ARE on the same wavelength! Nano! Nano!

    Connie, they know, OH!, they know!!!
