I meant to pop in to say Merry Christmas, but wow the week flew by and suddenly it was here and gone! What a lovely Christmas it was, and here it is, New Years Eve already! The poor Skeptic is at work tonight, the big boys asleep, Spinner snuggling on my lap, and I thought I’d take this quiet time to share a few gifts and moments from the last couple weeks.

We stenciled, painted, sewed, cut, baked and knit our way to the holiday and amazingly, most of the list was done. The major casualties? A skein of Malabrigo that had an untimely injury (sorry, Mom. I think the bag I got you from Annik was better anyway!), the Skeptic only had a sock and a half by Christmas morning, and my father-in-law received a neckwarmer still on the needles since I left the second ball of yarn at home. But aside from that, gifts were wrapped, food was made, little boys were thrilled, and Christmas was beautiful.

    And to you as well! Before you know it, they’ll be teens, and you’ll spend your New Year’s Eve in long, rowdy games of Monopoly, full of rampant cheating.

    Not, of course, that that’s how we spent our New Year’s Eve.

  2. Wow! I’m so impressed. T-shirt stencils, baby blankets, fabric dying, cookies – all will 3 boys. You are SUPER WOMAN!

  3. Those all look great! I wish I got to all the handmade things I wanted to for Christmas, but just barely got my knitting gifts done. I’m going to have to up my holiday preps for next year if I want to do everything next time 🙂

    Happy New Year to all of you!
