What was I thinking!?!?!?...

I guess I wasn't thinking when I suggested to my mom that my family come here for Christmas Eve. I thought we could just put out some munchies and have a drink or two (soda for those who don't like spirits), give the kids their gifts and spend quality time just visiting. I thought we could just have a little get together... I wasn't remembering how everything turns into a big deal when we all get together. Normally I wouldn't mind but I'm still not up to speed yet. Since I opened my big mouth about getting together Christmas Eve I will be cooking for 20 people!!! I ran the idea past mom that I just make a ham with a few sides and chips. She was ok with it, I just don't know how my brothers will handle it. I love my brothers but they can be so demanding and picky. One has three kids 5 and under, he wants to have them home and in bed by 9:00 that night. That wouldn't be so bad but he has to work till who knows when. So he has know idea what time he'll show up. Well, I know I shouldn't complain... At least I have a family to share the holiday with. And even though it sounds like I am not grateful for that I most certainly am!!!

I would like to say "Thank You" to everyone who wished us a Happy Anniversary. I still can't belive it been 19 years...All I can say is WOW!!!

I had stopped knitting a couple of weeks ago...I just didn't have the energy. Well, Monday night I finally picked up my needles again. (HOORAY FOR ME) I finished the "brilliant Blue" felted hat I started a few months ago. It came out great. It looks like an old style top hat. It's cool. If I can borrow a camera I will get you a picture. I have a felting question if anyone knows about felting...I read somewhere you should starch the hat and hit it with steam...Is this correct??? The pattern says NOTHING about this. I'm not sure what to do. It's felted and shaped and looks good but its not firm. I would like to make a cable hat band and I still have to make the sweat band for inside.

I don't think I will have the boy's sweater done for the holidays but his birthday is around the corner. I don't think he'll care when he gets it as long as he gets it. I will most likely just work on small projects for a while till things are up to speed.

I don't know how things will be going in the next few weeks so if I don't get to post again before Christmas please let me say now...

Please have a safe holiday and...

I hope you've survived the invasion of the family! Why is it when you plan a "little get-together" it has to escalate into the get-together from heck? I could tell you stories! You could tell me stories! Get back to the knitting, girl - you'll recouperate in no time!

Merry Christmas, Lea
