Thanks Audrey! What kind of a dog was Cuddles? We were told Boomer is a beagle/spaniel mix, but I'm always curious about the breed mix of other similar dogs. They truly are family, aren't they. :)
Yum! this brings back wonderfully sweet memories... my uncle had a sugaring shack when I was a little girl. I would love to see/do this again someday.

Thank you Brooke! It really is so great to see them 'get it', isn't it... it makes me think we're actually doing something right with regards to training.

Yes, let's! Short books though... really really short books. :)
Oh, congratulations on your little boy! Happy and healthy thoughts to you all....

Oh congrats!! It's just gorgeous... this project of yours has been an inspiration (especially with the starting over you had to do only just a few months ago). I've only ever knit hats for my guy, but one of these days I will start (and finish!) a sweater for him.

Aw, thank you! I'm glad!

Thank you! It was such a welcome sight for a morning commute. (photo effects are courtesy of Instagram)

Ohhh... a door snake! That might be exactly what we need for our front door ('cuz baby, it's cold outside). I, too, am quite happy to wash dishes by hand. It's a brief pause in the day and the perfect time for daydreaming. A dishwasher will likely make its way into this house eventually, but for now I don't mind its absence. My major dislike? Ironing. I just can't bring myself to do it.

Me too! Fingers are firmly crossed around here...
Oh, I loved this post! Laughed and grinned my way through it. Happy name hunting Soule family.... Looking forward to the big reveal!

I'm right there with you on the (oh so cold!) cold house and The Decemberists' tunes. And, cold house and all, it's kind of wonderful, isn't it.

Thank you both! This was such a fun knit I could seriously knit a rainbow of these! (and keep them all for me!)

Love this line: "he wears it often because I put it on him".... Hilarious!! Lovely photo-shoot, Adelaide!

Well said SoulePapa! I'm not a Mainer, but being from northern Ontario I think I could get along quite well with you folks! Embracing winter, and sometimes just surviving it - sanity intact, is something to be proud of.

Hilarious!!! Your storytelling of this "round up" was wonderful - I was laughing the whole way through. I just love the way you reflect back on this with such a down to earth nature. To laugh about the crazy predicaments we find ourselves does so much good for us (and the little ones in our lives).

Thanks Heather! Thank goodness he's food motivated!!... I think progress is being made - I took a photo of him yesterday and he actually sat still for more than 2 seconds! We're stocking up on cheese over here...
Thanks Cara! Boomer in general is quite hysterical... he's the class clown around here and I think he quite likes the role.

Oh I love that scene!! I've always wanted to string popcorn. Someday, having kids will make for the perfect excuse!

Hi Meg - I'm a longtime reader but have not posted before. I am so sorry this news. Wishing you and your family a world of strength and love as you welcome the littlest one into your family and in all that is ahead. Lots of love and strength to "Lala".

Love Steve on the floor with the dog.... That sort of scene happens a lot in our house. Absolutely love the warm happy space you've created. There is nothing like a wood stove. Wishing you a happy warm winter!

I hear you, Amanda!! This is our first year in our small old (and apparently cold!) house and I'm feeling the chill already. More weatherproofing to come for us next year, but for this one? I must KNIT!! (and, being that I grew up in northern Ontario, I too am a bit embarrassed to admit it.) Stay warm!
