Welp, the blog was blocked at my office for a while, so I stopped checking. It seems as though it's back up and running - so I'll do my best to contribute.
Congrats on painting the house, Kev. I bet it looks very nice.
Hopefully school is going well for the college/graduate kids! It's not too long before Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks!
Andrew - Congrats on passing your test...that's a great accomplishment!
Mary is coming to the Lou for T-giving, so we should have a great time giving her a tour of the city and celebrating the engagement. And, I'm sure, we'll go to a yarn store or two - unless I can convince her they are closed over the holiday :)
Dad/Mom - I hope all is going well. I'm sure having Katie at home is very nice. Keep me posted on anything and everything about Grandpa. From the last I heard, he is doing much better and in great spirits.
I look forward to seeing everyone over Christmas!
