Goozle Turned 2 and other fun stuff

Warning: This is a super long post with lots of pictures!

First, the contest winners!

Elaine won a Cherry Swirl Yarncream Cone:

More yarn-y treats will be uploaded to my etsy shop–Yarndulgent. There’s only one thing on there so far. It’s actually been raining for the past week, so I haven’t been able to dye any yarn. And the kids have been sick and not sleeping well, so I haven’t been able to put together any packages. I’ll also be adding non-animal yarn treats and patterns to make complete kits, so check back often.

Last Friday was Goozle’s second birthday! I can’t believe he’s 2 already. We went to the zoo in Madison for his birthday. Of course, I forgot my camera for that part. He didn’t really care about the animals, but he liked walking around, and he got to play on the playground after a 3 hour car ride. As always, I got lost on the way there. N and I were weighing out the pros and cons of possibly moving to Madison. Consistently getting lost-con.
My dad and V threw quite the little birthday bash for Goozle.
He got some books, some puzzles (which I already had to take away) and a truck that makes lots of noise. (We found the on/off switch!)
On Saturday, N and I went to the Packer game! Of course, being August, we didn’t pack warm clothes, so we had to stop and pick some up.
It rained for most of the game. We were soaked by the end, but it was a lot of fun.
I got to drink $13 worth of beer (2) from a plastic cup and ate a jumbo brat. Definitely didn’t need that.
Since the last time I blogged, I got three more postcards from my KVVS partner. They’re from Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island. I’ve wanted to visit Prince Edward Island since I read the Anne of Green Gables books.
I also got this from my secret pal:
yarn 043
Stitch markers, yarn gauge, little containers for them both and a Yarntainer filled with pretty blue yarn! I love it! A Yarntainer, that’s genius. Now I can knit without Girly taking my yarn. Thanks secret pal!
I also got another yarn-y package in the mail, out of the blue:
yarn 044
A while back Michele said she’d send me some yen for the kitty. I completely forgot about it, so this was a nice surprise. Even better, she also send me more Japanese stuff: Kureyon and a little tissue pocket. What a nice package; knitters are so nice!
I think that is enough for one post!

    pleased to hear that the postcards have been arriving… the package is STILL en route. actually, the tracking system says that its still here in ???, but its been saying that for almost 2 weeks! i may have to go downstairs and speak sternly to the “posties” – wait – maybe that’s dangerous… ; )
    looks like goozle had a great birthday. they grow up so quickly.

    Are you going to the Sheep and Wool thing? I am not taking a class this year but will go and spend the day hanging out on Saturday. I will be in and out of Susan’s Fiber Shop booth so maybe we will see you there??Michele gave me one of those Japanese kleenex things too! How cool is that?

    The ice cream cone is cute!!!

    With 3 boys I know all about the on/off switch. At this point I try and avoid things with batteries, which doesn’t always work. Just in case I just don’t stock batteries in the house so when they run out I can’t replace them, lol.

  • 12. Elaine  |  August 31, 2007 at 2:28 pm

    I can’t believe I’m the lucky winner of the ultra-fun ice cream cone! A way to indulge in my 2 favorite things (ice cream and yarn) with no caloric woes.

    Thanks again and lots of luck with the etsy shop!

  • 13. Sharon  |  September 2, 2007 at 8:40 am
