Give me strength

Dinner last night with the kids went great.  Sometimes you worry when there are eleven year old twins and a thirteen year old.  We decided to give them money for their birthdays.  Very big hit.  They love going shopping and picking out their own presents.  We forget that they are their own people and sometimes we try and buy a gift that they can all share.  It is amazing how different their likes are.

A cute story about the twins.  I can't tell them apart.  When they were five I commented to them that the twin whose name starts with a B should always wear blue to help us.  Since that day whenever we see the twins, B is always wearing a blue shirt.  Life is much easier now.  :)

Yesterday I mentioned that Silk Garden Lite was available again.  Here are the shades.  I have two cardigans in the yarn and love it!!

#2038 is calling my name.  I have shoes with those colours-it would make a great outfit.  :)

Here is a sample of Silk Garden Lite from Jenny Watson's Catwalk Two.
