Merry Day After Christmas!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. We enjoyed a nice visit with my folks who drove down from Louisville on the 23rd and stayed until this morning. We had snow, cold temperatures, and lots of down time just to "be".

We also had presents, and lots of them:

(Seems that Rosco's ear is making a cameo appearance in this photo.)

The kids were up at 5:10 a.m. The grandparents got to sleep in until 7:00-ish. Papaw appeared first, fully dressed and ready for the day, as always:

Granny followed a bit later, still in her nightclothes, as most of us were for the greater part of the day:

Our chef made us a light breakfast of finger foods. Why does he always have a guilty look on his face?

The calm before the storm:

In the midst of the Tempest:

The aftermath:

Time to swing to the tunes from her iPod, wearing her new Cookie Monsters.

What did I get, you ask? Among other things, some great silver fleur de lis earrings, Bath & Body Works Dancing Waters shower gel, Keith Urban Get Closer CD, Haus of Yarn gift certificate, and what's that at the top of the picture??

Addi Clicks! Yes! My very first Addis and I got a whole set of interchangeable circulars! Hub pays attention to me more than I realize. He knows I'd never splurge on these for myself, but he's heard me mention them before (and I wasn't even hinting!).

So what does any self-respecting yarn addict do when she has brand new Addis? Why, cast on a new project, of course! These are Duffers. They're only 19 rows! 19 rows, people! I started them last night and finished them this morning.


(My original model wouldn't cooperate for the "after" picture.)

Time to kick back and enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
God bless!

Looks like you had a lovely time with your family. DH did an awesome job on your gifts, especially the Addi Clicks. You are racking them up this year, first the Kindle now the Addi's. Someone loves you! :-)
