We spent a really nice Christmas in NY with family. We had a white Christmas too, but then it rained and it all washed away.
I didn’t finish all of my knitted gifts for Christmas so I have a few IOU’s I am finishing up. I really can’t wait to knit something for myself. I do this every year and then I spend most of December tired and grumpy, rather than enjoying my favorite holiday. I have to stop doing this to myself. I joined the Christmas 2009 Ravelry group and started a list of Christmas presents for next year.
I also did a lot of sewing for Christmas which landed me in the Chiropractors the day before we left for NY. I have to say I’m relieved that it’s over, no more deadlines. I can breath easy for a bit.
It was Finnigan’s first Christmas and he was such a delight! He really got into the tearing open presents
…and then eating the wrapping paper.
The Monkey got her very first sewing machine from her Grandparents. She’s much more excited than she looks in this picture.
I will probably be giving her my sewing table and moving myself over to my Grandma B’s desk. We have a “just the girls” trip to JoAnn’s planned.
It was a great, crazy, fun trip. We had a wonderful Christmas!
And a wee picture of Finn and his very first Christmas present. We had a Christmas party for our small group bible study and one of the couples that attends gave him a little stuffed Pooh.
