Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me....so you know the rest of the song. Actually this picture is from the day after Christmas (my birthday is January ONE). We took the fam, that's Mickey, Dane, John, Delia, Gran (Dane's mom), me and Mary out to Sakura for dinner. Actually Gran treated which was great. It was crowded. Everybody had the same idea...tired of cooking all that holiday food---let's get out! It was great. The chefs are wonderful and very entertaining and my daughter Delia was able to catch several pieces of shrimp when he threw them in her mouth! My wonderful mother in law, has had quite the ordeal getting back home to Albuquerque, New Mexico. First her flight was delayed on Friday, then cancelled all together. Then we were able to re-schedule her for New Year's Eve. We got her on the plane and all was well when my sister in law called to say that a rare fog had enveloped Albuquerque and that her plane was being re-routed to Phoenix. Luckily for us, Gran's best friend lives in Phoenix and was able to pick her up. Unfortunately, Jeanie suffers from early Alzheimer's, and I can only imagine the stress she was feeling when the pilot announced that they would not be landing in Albuquerque. She is a wonderful lady and we are lucky to have her! Hopefully she will make it home soon--I know she was anxious to be home and missed her beautiful hacienda! Star Hats: In a galaxy very near, there lived a loving mother and her beautiful daughter. Her daughter had a wonderful friend, who was much like a daughter to the mother! A pattern was found for star hats, colors chosen, hats knitted, and even lined with fleece so their ears would not get itchy. All was right with the world and the galaxy was safe once again.
Aren't they beautiful....the hats AND the girls. Pattern from Knitting Central, Yarn is Reynold's Lopi, some modifications were made...and about a half yard of polar fleece basted to the inside brim. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Oh you did have a good time. What a lovely family. Weather was causing havoc all over wasn't it. Hopefully she gets home ok.

Love the hats and the girls sure looked like they enjoyed them.
