Better than Christmas

It's a day for the history books.

We're official. We went before the judge and he gave us his much needed and long awaited autograph. There were no fireworks, not even a slamming of the gavel. Just a sign here and a congratulations, but you'd have thought I lost fifty pounds. The weight literally lifted off my shoulders. She's ours now. Halle-fricken-llujah!

We have a self portrait in front of the courthouse, but it is even worse than these beauties taken just chillin' on the floor.

I was going to tell another part of our story, but I'm tired. It'll come. I promise. We still have twenty days left in the month.

I've stayed up all week either working on the blasted sweater or for wedding festivities. I literally sewed on the buttons in the parking lot in time for our photo shoot.

Mrs. Darcy Sweater- Ravelry
Cast on October 31. Finished November 10.
Knit with Berroco Ultra Alpaca color 6297 on size 10 circulars.
Buttons came from stash.

It was a good day for family pictures- seeing as we all have the same last name now.

It is time for a nap. Someone tell Scrunch. Ready, set, go-to-sleep. Damn. It didn't work. But I'm still too tired to tell stories.

Wedding pictures will come soon. I promise those, too.
