Buttons, Buttons

Today I took a vacation day because we had to have a new HVAC and it was being installed today.  While I was here at their beck and call I finally weaved in the ends and sewed buttons on my Smart Gloves designed by the Rainey Sisters. The yarn is Malabrigo sock yarn, which I love. 

Notice the pop-top thumb and index finger for texting.  These aren't really mine - good thing we had a mild winter as I started these for my daughter before Christmas.  Now I want to make myself a pair. 

Every year we get a bird nest in one of our front porch ferns.  Today they started to hatch.  I actually watched the second one peck himself out of the shell.

Last weekend we went to the local Butterfly House for the release of the first butterflies. It was a beautiful day.  Sophie liked watching them, but wasn't at all interested in having one land on her!

Work again tomorrow - I could get used to a 4 day work week!

I love the gloves--pink and green are so nice together. The button makes them perfect! Sophie is soo cute!

Hi! Thank you for the comment on my blog. I wanted to e-mail you but I couldn't figure out how to do it from my blog.

It's not the waiting for a NSN referral that has us pulling our paperwork. My husband has been unemployed for three years and we don't make enough money to qualify for China. We would have to update our paperwork because we let it expire but we can't update it because we don't meet the regulations anymore. It's complicated. We also had to move to a one bedroom apt and we don't have a room for the baby anymore. Most of all we simply don't have the money to travel to China on our limited budget. We were hopeful that he would find work and be able to continue but it isn't looking like that is going to happen. But thank you for the advice! We certainly would have switched to the special needs list if my husband had not lost his job.
