Tonight's the Night!

New blog template. I wasn't having any trouble viewing it, but a couple of the Knitterpudlians said it went wonky when they tried to view it. Don't know what was up, so I'm trying this one. If this one looks funky for any of you, please lemme know so I can try something else. Thanks.

Tonight is the night that my BFF is arriving from Alberta for a visit. She's coming with her oldest girl, they leave on July 6, and her boyfriend is coming as well but is leaving on July 2. He wasn't supposed to come but decided a couple of weeks ago that he was. Her other two kids unfortunately can't come, so they are staying with her brother til she gets back. I'm excited, I haven't seen her since summer of 2008. We're hoping to get out to her place next summer. Ideally she'd like to come home every second year, and we'd like to get out every second year, so that would work out great to seeing her every year. (We've been BFF for 30 years now, ever since grade two when we met.) She'll also finally get her birthday presents from last year. (Remember how I mailed them to her, she's terrible at checking the mail, they were there so long they shipped them back? And I had to pay as much to get them out as I did to send them to her. And I said she'd not get them til I saw her in person.)

I have been knitting but don't really have much to show. I'm working on dishcloths for the boys' teachers. They had their last day of school yesterday but have to go on Tuesday morning to pick up their report cards and anything else that accidentally got left in school. So far I have one set done, two more to go. (The Littlest One has a teacher's aide in his class, so she's getting these.)

Last night was prom night at the high school. I had such plans for outdoor photos. We were going to go to T's house and use his yard (gorgeous yard, flowers everywhere, lawn kept perfect, nice pond with waterfall, just plain beautiful). Anyways, it absolutely poured out, so no pretty pictures. (From working in a photo shop for over 11 years I know all the poses!!) My house is smallish, and I don't have anywhere good for really good pictures, so I had to make due with what I had. This is nephew when he was getting ready to go. He'll be 19 on Sunday. Ga!! Where does the time go? And my brother's boy was 22 yesterday.... Man, I feel old.

This is him and his date (just friends) at the prom. My SIL took my camera and got some more pictures. This girl, I went to school with her father. (Who happens to be my BFF's cousin.) Man, I am feeling even older.

The girl on the left in the black dress, she's the boys' babysitter. Her grandmother and Hubs's grandfather are brother and sister.

I guess it was pretty crowded at the school since it was raining, and everyone was inside taking pictures. Today it's hot and sunny. Figures. We really did need the rain, but not on prom night!

Off to finish up some housework.

Happy knitting!
