Our little grandson Jackie is 5 years old today! A birthday that my mother always…
Hannah was thrilled with all your birthday wishes yesterday. Thank you all so much for taking the time to leave comments, offer advice and extend a happy birthday to my girl. It means a lot to both of us.
And you know, your comments were truly just the tip of the iceberg for making Hannah’s birthday a happy one. You see, it has become a family tradition to receive hand knit socks and yesterday I gifted Hannah with these new ones.
The yarn is Claudia’s Handpaint and yes, they are from two different dye lots. That’s a long boring story and I’m not going into it here but it was totally my fault.
I actually thought they’d look a lot different than they do – one is clearly darker than the other. But Hannah says she doesn’t mind and I hope she wears them well.
There was one other thing that really made Hannah’s day. Tori Amos tickets. Hannah had asked me quite some time ago if she and Jessica (my stepdaughter) could go to this concert together. I told her no and said I didn’t think it would be good for she and Jess to go into Boston on their own. Man alive was she mad at me! She complained to Jess and Dale and her friends. It went on for days and it wasn’t pretty.
Secretly, though, I had planned all along to get her these tickets. And while I still don’t think it’s a good idea to send my two daughters into the city alone, I’m planning on remedying that by going in with them. Dale and I will drop them at the show and then go have dinner and hang out and pick them up afterwards. Simple solution.
And a fabulous surprise.

What a great Birthday suprise! She looks both shocked and happy.
The look on her face is priceless! The socks look great, love the picot edge.
Oh, dang it, I missed it! Happy belated birthday, Hannah!
What a great treat for Hannah. She really looked surprised. I hope she has a great time at the concert and Mom and Dale have a great idea of dropping them off and bringing them back home. Definitely too young, imo, to go into the city by themselves.
Oh those pictures of her realizing what you did are priceless!!!
LOVE those socks, and the picot edging!!!
TORI AMOS!! LUCKY GIRL!!
I just did my first picot edge on a sock last night! Hip hip hooray! Hannah’s socks are pretty…but then, so is Hannah!
What a great birthday present. I’m sure Hannah will be forever grateful. 🙂
The expression on her fact is absolutely priceless. Thank you for sharing that! It looks like she had a great birthday 🙂
yay for solutions (and a happy teen!)
