Pictures!! Brother-in-laws and my sock!

So, I promised some pictures and then I've been busy or lazy or name it. First off this week has been good...just tiring. My allergies for one have been making me have a runny nose every morning but I've started taking my meds every night so it seems to be helping. Last night, I had guitar and I'm learning to pick and bend strings so the tips of my fingers are sore but I'm LOVING it! I'm learning to do a solo! now some pictures to catch up with. While my dad was here for the world series, his girls and him played a good game of cards. We played one my families favorites, Russian Rummy. Here's a picture of us all playing cards. We were only missing Cristina, who lives in CA.

Well, Cris made it for the wedding and the I guess we can include a picture of her. This is a picture of Cristina and me, doing something over the stove. :) A lot of people say we look a lot a like. It's hard to see how we all look so alike yet so different. :) For one thing, I'm the only one with wavy hair. I like this picture for some reason. I think it's cute.And now the pictures I was promising. My dad told me while he was here and after he watched that movie the Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nickolson that he was able to cross of two things off his Bucket List. First was going to a World Series game and then watching his youngest and the last of his biological daughters get married. That made me tear up. One of my biggest fears growing up was that my father wouldn't be there at my wedding. It was really big that he got to walk me down the isle. It wouldn't have been the same if I didn't have a parent there. My mother was missed a lot at the ceremony and always but I'm so glad my dad was here.

Well...since the Martinez's girls as we are known are now all married off. He wanted to make sure we got a picture of us all while we are all together. Cristina's husband Kevin and her live in CA so we don't see that all that much. The rest of us all live pretty much in the same we see each other plenty. :)

So...all the brother-in-law's from oldest to youngest...shortest to tallest. (left to right)

And all the brother-in-laws and their wives. It's pretty amazing that we all married younger men. Some months apart and others longer. Special K and I have the biggest difference with about 4 years.

I hope you've enjoyed the pictures. I haven't forgotten the Spam post. I'll try to get that up this weekend!

I'm off to lay in bed and work on my Entrelac sock. I'm having so much fun knitting it! Here's a progress pic.

Happy Knitting, Spinning, and loving on your pups!!


  1. Love the pics, what a treasure to have all of you together. Made me tear up to hear your dad's bucket list! So glad he was able to walk you down the aisle. I remember being so nervous that I actually shook some roses out of my bouquet!

    The sock is coming out so cool, just love it!

  2. Great photos. I don't know whether it's more noteworthy that the oldest-youngest and shortest-tallest orders are the same, or that you all married younger guys! You're a beautiful bunch!

  3. What a lovely family. I love that you all (mostly) live so close. I live next door to my sister and a couple blocks from my other sister and my mom. My dad however is in CA.

    Oh and I play the guitar too.

  4. Great pics - I love that pic of the 2 of you too, really cute!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your sock!

  5. That's so sweet about your Dad's list. That is a great picture of all of you as well.
    And the sock looks great! I like the two pinks. Great choice.
