Getting ready for his first

It’s been a wildly busy week in a very good way!  Together with Keats and Gabe, Jonny and I have packaged and mailed those original 70 dozen dishcloths and are now working on another 50 dozen!  The dishcloth orders are still trickling in and we can’t get over it!  I wish you could have seen the boys cheering when they realized this was really happening and that they would be able to continue to play for their travel baseball team!  Thank you all so much!  (And while I thought I invoiced everyone who asked, I have gotten a few emails from those who left a comment, but didn’t get an invoice.  Sometimes they go to spam folders, so be sure to check there!)

And, Job turned one on Wednesday!  And while we told him over and over again that it was his birthday and marveled over the fact that our baby is an entire year old, we haven’t had our official celebration yet.  I finished his birthday sweater on Wednesday, and his birthday crown on Thursday (only a day late!)  Job’s godparents are joining us for a little party and we are so excited to celebrate with them!  I baked pumpkins last night, and today I will make pumpkin pies with gingersnap crusts.

p.s.  I guess that photo of Intruder might be a little worrisome, given that he is standing in the road.  Many years ago, he arrived at our house (an uninvited Intruder) from somewhere beyond the other side of the road.  He was a bully, and I didn’t like him at all!  All these years later, he is much calmer, and very loved.  His habit of visiting our neighbor’s yard makes me nervous, but I swear, I’ve seen that cat look both ways before crossing!  And short of forcing him indoors (Seth’s been trying lately!) there’s no controlling Intruder.  On this day, he just wandered out to see what I was doing, and I snapped his photo before shooing him back into the driveway.
