Below is how long my hair was not so long ago. This picture makes me miss it!

Also, Jason and I just got tickets to the 1st 2 rounds of the NCAA women's tournament in Norfolk. UNC women are playing on Sunday at noon. Hopefully they'll win and we'll also see them play on Tuesday. I think it's pretty cool that even though we didn't make it to Chapel Hill to see some games, the Tarheels are coming to us! Unfortunately the KU women's team didn't make it to the big dance. If you happen to watch the NCAA women's tournament on tv look for me and Jason. Maybe we'll make a big sign so we'll be easier to find :-) First I'll make sure it's televised!

Here's Hutch relaxing. He loves sleeping in this postion!
And here's Charlie. For some reason he was using this black folder as a pillow. It didn't look comfortable to us either.
And here are Jason and Murphy. It looks like Jason is telling him a secret and Murphy is listening intently.

This is the yarn I'm using. I really like it. I don't know if you can see all the subtle colors on the computer but there are hues of red and green and yellow.
In other news, Jason and I watched Bee Movie the other day. It's very funny and I highly recommend it!!!

Currently the dogs are being quite annoying. They are all fighting over a yellow flashing ball. Murphy is growling, Hutch is whining, and Charlie is just running around trying to get the ball (well, now he is being vocal too!) Hopefully they will calm down at bedtime, which is quickly approaching.
Jason allowed me to take yet another picture of his foot so I can show my progress. Thanks sweetie!

We've been planning to post a video of the dogs but just now got around to it. Charlie is usually the instigator of the "fights" as you can probably see in the video above. Notice how Hutch goes to Jason when he realizes we're watching them. Charlie, however, goes after Murphy (the camera ran out of memory space after this).
In the 2nd video, taken last night, Charlie was trying to start something with Hutch but as soon as I started videotaping he played dumb :-)

I've been knitting for a few years but until now had never made a sock. I did make Christmas stockings for Jason and myself to hang above the fireplace but that did not require tiny needles and tiny yarn. A couple of months ago (sometime before Christmas) I decided I would make a pair of socks for Jason. I guess it took me awhile to get the courage to tackle them but I finally started his socks. Below is a preview of how it's going. Basically it was really slow to start with (Jason keeps reminding me that he needs 2 socks, not just one) because for 6 1/2 inches you knit 2 purl 2. For you non-knitters out there that just means that it is VERY monotonous! However, as soon as I started the heel things got a lot more fun and moved a lot faster.
Below is a picture of Jason trying the sock on. I'm using 2 circular needles instead of double pointed needles to knit the socks so he can try them on as I knit them to make sure they fit. So far so good! :-)
This is the heel of the sock. I'm really pleased with how it's turning out.
And this is what the sock currently looks like. I've knit the leg,turned the heel and am now working on the gusset. I'm learning a lot about sock anatomy as I go! I'm planning on working on it more today and tonight so hopefully I'll have even more progress to show tomorrow!

Kansas also won today. They beat Texas A&M. Basketball season is great! Especially when your team is doing well! :-)
Jason and I went to the NC mountains this past week. We had a great visit and enjoyed a week away from the hustle and bustle of the "big city." Jason had National Guard duty this weekend and so he didn't arrive until late Sunday night.
I've been a bit delayed in posting pics so here's one from Feb. 28th.
We went to the NC mountains this week. I got there on Saturday and Jason came down on Sunday since he had National Guard drill this weekend. The dogs were really happy to see him!
Here are Mom and Dad with their respective lap dogs.
Sophie and Charlie get pretty cozy on the couch.
Charlie and Keats were both trying to squeeze on Mom's lap.
