Surprise, surprise

Surprise, surprise, World. The Mrs. and I have succeeded for 17 weeks in keeping the biggest secret that history has ever known. But the secret is now out and you heard it here first. Unless you heard it elsewhere. We are having a little boy! Debbie is pregnant and due October 9, 2012 with our little man. Here are pictures of proof.

Our cheapo college way of decorating our apartment with the news. 

Plus, Debbie got a perm.

Two little berries that prove he is a boy. 

We are very excited. Please send us money and/or free things to congratulate us. Or you can just come and visit when Baby Mohawk has officially arrived.

New Slippers!

So a little over a month ago I decided that I wanted to learn how to crochet. I decided to take lessons from the 80+ yr old woman that I visit teach. I tried to work diligently on these slippers but they were taking forever. Of course I made them for Eric because he has very cold feet, especially when we get in bed. Well after a month or so I finished the basics of one slipper. For the other slipper I had become so skilled that I did it in just a week. I ran out of the yarn that I was using and luckily had just gotten more from a Relief Society Activity, so I was able to use that. I finished them up last night and ooala! They turned out perfect! Well for our purposes. I am very pleased that I now know how to crochet and am excited to try other things. I used a half double crochet stitch which is nice and thick and should be pretty warm for Eric's feet.
My happy camper.
We also took pictures of the pretty flowers and the horses at the Rigby house, but I forgot to put those on the computer. Next time I guess!
