Alison (and her sweater)

Keith and I spent the last couple of weeks in Florida (and road-tripping there and back). It was disgustingly hot, but we coped by carrying around an umbrella at all times, staying up to our necks in the pool, and drinking lots and lots of iced tea. The best part about being in Florida was that we had the chance to hang out with Keith's family. We were all on vacation together, so there was plenty of time.

While we were in Japan, of course our nieces and nephews all got a lot bigger. One in particular changed a lot in our absence: Alison Grace was a bump when we left and a baby when we came back! She was born to Keith's brother, Joseph and his wife, Catherine on October 28, 2009. We were so excited to meet her for the first time!

Yes! I got her to sleep!!

I had been working on a sweater for Ali since long before she was born... and finally finished it while we were in Florida! Vacation is a great time to finish knitting projects. It was my own design, so it was really fun to make! I made up the pattern as I went along.

We'll close this post with a cute picture of Michael, Ali's older brother...
