Merry December!

Well, I sure hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We sure did!! Spent Turkey day with my family at my mom's. We had a wonderful time. Then on Saturday, my DH's family came up to our house. Fun was had by all. We ate way too much, but it all was so good. Monday was quite the emotional day, as our son began his deployment. We sent three crying kids to school and then had to take him. The Lord did bless us with an absolutely beautiful drive, as it had snowed the night before and every limb on every tree was covered. The roads really weren't bad, and we had sweet conversation all the way there. God is Good! Please just keep Alex in your prayers. Thank you!!
I have been knitting a lot, but because everything I am knitting is for Christmas, there really aren't alot of pictures. I will however, be posting tons of them afterwards!!
I hope you like the new Christmas background. The first one I did seemed so easy. This one was a pain in the butt!! Please reward my frustrating efforts with tons of great comments! :) I am only half kidding of course. :)
I did receive the most awesome swap package from Jane. She send some wonderful oatmeal, chocolate monster cookies. A beautiful dishcloth, and cute fish tawashi. She also sent me two boxes of fudge, a cute little chocolate cookbook, and two skeins of cotton for more dishcloths. I feel like I'm forgetting something, but it was a wonderful surprise. OOps, I just realized that I don't have the pics for that yet. I will have hubby send them asap. Sorry. But it was a lovely package. You'll see!
Better go, just wanted to touch base. I have lots of knitting to do. Is anyone done yet??? Kudos to you if you are. Why don't I start this in January?? A question for the ages I suppose.
Thanks for stopping by.
