Is it OVER already???



Well It's December 26th already... I think somehow Christmas came early this year. I knitted away like a crazy person but I finished all my projects.

I made 10 scarves, all different, 2 hats, a pair of mittens, and pillow with a huge bow on it, it was a free pattern from the Caron yarn site. Let me tell you, the bow seemed to take forever and I literally finished the bow 30 minutes before we left for the Christmas Eve gathering and gift auction the pillow was for. Talk about marathon speed knitting.

We took Adam to a Christmas program at my mom's church, Hannah and Colin, were in the play and Adam loves them. Hannah was an angel and Colin was a mouse. They had Muppet's too and Adam really liked that. That was Sunday night. Adam was supposed to go home and we were going to get him again the next day, but he ended up spending the night with us. No problem except now I have not wrapped a single gift for Adam yet and can't do that with him in the same room as me.

Monday, Christmas Eve, we go to my mom's house. Every year all the grand kids put on a play, this is year 19. My son Joe, played Santa this year, Adam had not been to see Santa so when Joe came in the room Adam climbed on my lap and said "Go home now???" But Santa had some puzzles in his sack for Adam and after that Santa was Adam's new best friend, LOL. We brought Adam home to his mom around 6:30pm, so he still has not opened a single gift from us yet.

Tuesday we have out annual BRUNCH at my sister Dayna's. Everyone is usually still in their jammies and it's relaxing and fun. She has 4 children, Robbin 25, Chuck, 23, Autumn 18 and Hannah 6. Well this year she Gave her son Robbin an ornament that said to my favorite oldest child, She gave Chuck one that said my favorite middle child, and Hannah got one that said my favorite youngest child... and Autumn got a necklace (which by the way I WANT...)poor Autumn she was feeling so left out... now Dayna had staggered giving out those ornaments too, she brought one out about every 45 minutes or so... so the suspense was so funny. In the end Autumn got one that said to my favorite middle girl child but she said it was too late. It was funnier then I am probably letting on here...

I am still trying to upload photos to share with you all. I have several. I even made another original pattern. This is frustrating to me for sure.

My house is a mess... I am baffled too, we did not have a tree or any gifts to open here so I just can't figure out how it got so cluttered and messy. This is my job today.

My brother and sister in law also brought us a complete dinner to cook, Ham, potatoes, cabbage and carrots. I was going to make it tonight, but it's church night so I think I'll wait until tomorrow.

I am still planning on a contest in January, it will run all month long but I think each week might have a different theme... I am thinking maybe if I can promote it a little I might reach 10,000 hits. In fact I might name it the 10,000 Hit contest.

I miss blogging, and hope if I can somehow convince TOM to leave I can blog daily again starting today.

Merry Christmas

I agree with you...Christmas came early this year. lol
Sounds like you had a nice time with family which is always my favorite part of Christmas. The ornament idea was too funny.
We got to get Tom outta the house so you can get back to blogging. You've been gone too long. We miss ya!
Hugs!

Wow, you tired me out, just reading everything that you did! It sounds like you had a wonderful time with your family. You sure did make a lot of gifts. I fell behind on that this year.

Well, I'm off to do some blogging of my own. Have a great evening!
