So last Friday, I got home from work to find that Kyle had bought me a laptop. He had decided that I needed a computer that was good enough to play WOW on that I can bring with me when I travel for work. That way, when I am done for the night, we can hook up online and play. So, when I was in Waco this past week, I had all intentions to sit down when I got to my hotel room, post on this blog, and then play. But, my intentions weren't good enough. For some reason, after starting work at 6:30 in the morning, working in up to 106 degree heat all day, and returning to the hotel at about 8 or 8:30, I was a bit exhausted. I managed to turn the computer on long enough to check email, and that was all. I was out. So, it may take me a little while to catch up. But, you'll survive, right?

So, I'm going to be an Auntie for the first time! We're very excited. And, we found out about a week ago that I'm not just getting 1 nephew, I'm getting 2! Yes, she's having twin boys! I think my mom had an aunt that had twins, but that's about the history of twins in our family. There's no history in her hubby's family. Can't quite figure out where they came from. lol. Boy, is she going to have her hands full! I think I may treat myself to a trip to Hobby Lobby today to check out baby patterns and yarn. Get back to working with fiber. I miss it so much! If any of you know of anything I should make for the boys, let me know!

Woo hoo!! Congrats on becoming an Auntie!! It is soooo much fun! You get to love em and spoil em rotten and then send them home!!

As for crocheting for boys, animals work! I've made turtles for my nephew and have a request from him for a "giant big snake thats really really cooool" Other than that, I've always been at a loss - mine loves his blankie that someone else knitted him (I did not even crochet when he was born)

Bonne chance!
