Picture Meme

I was innocently trying to catch up on some blogs, when suddenly I was tagged by Momo for this meme. Since I have been such a slacker, I decided to play along, so here goes:

Go to my 4th picture folder
Post my the fourth picture in that folder
Tell 4 things about that photo
And tag 4 other people

  1. This is Lil' AR, also known as Little Diva, and lately Drama Queen.
  2. Our only girl, after two boys, I dressed her all in pink, lacy, frilly things until she was old enough to talk, and said "No more pink!"
  3. She is holding her elephant, and handspun mitts that I knit for her for Christmas, and wearing a wristband her oldest brother bought for her for Christmas.
  4. This picture makes me realize that my kids are growing up really fast!

And just like I was tagged, by reading a post, so too are you. Consider yourself tagged (if you want to play along)

Next time on Arleta's Motley Wool: a gorgeous Christmas present Mr. Knittar and I got, and maybe some knitting pictures! Keep on Knitting!!

Yes We Can! Yes We Did!!

Is today the most exciting day ever, or what? I feel like such a part of our country today. Proud and excited (and jealous of everyone who was able to go to Washington) I felt even better after seeing this video that was on ravelry. Yay, Obama!!!! I wish I had something red, white, and blue to knit.

I am seriously getting choked up watching the news people interviewing audience members. The miles people traveled, and standing in the cold for hours just shows how important this day is, and how absolutely wonderful this will be for our country. Yesterday, being Dr. King's birthday, and then today, wow! I don't even know what to say, except that today, I am proud to be an American!
