Amigurumi Mouse

I've been observing  the latest trends in crochet and have seen some really cute stuffies made in the amigurumi style.  I found a free pattern on the web to try it out.  I made this mouse using a larger hook and yarn than the pattern, and found buttons in my button box for the eyes.  I was able to make him in one afternoon, between folding laundry and picking up M. from practice. He's larger than a real mouse, but I think he turned out pretty cute for my first try at amigurumi.

Christmas Lights

Last night (December 23rd), we took a ride to Sandy Point State Park to see Lights on the Bay.  Here are some pictures from our ride.  When we paid our admission, we were told what radio station to tune in to hear Christmas music.  The station played a nice mix of religious carols, classic Christmas songs and more recent releases.  We had a great time.
