2013 went out with a bang! We were so blessed to have our entire family together over Thanksgiving. Hence, the current family picture in which we all really look like ourselves! This is not something I take for granted, but I am extremely grateful. Those cute boys are wearing their Barley hats. They love them and the oldest has requested another in red.
We were able to watch our grandchildren for a week of Grandparent Camp while their parents traveled to New York. A trip to the Newport Aquarium was as much fun for us as it was for them. The shark tank is amazing, as the sharks swim under and all around you as you walk through a tunnel.
We were able to attend the Christmas program at our kid's church when we took the grandchildren back to Nashville. It is after Christmas I know, but if you want to relish the season and it's meaning a bit longer enjoy the video.
This hat is a hit. It fits perfectly and made in a washable yarn, makes it a great winter wear item for children. And it looks especially cute on these darling children, my grandchildren.
The pattern is written for toddler through adult, so I expect to get a lot of milage out of it.
Thanks to my daughter-in-law, we had some wonderful family pictures taken.
Wishing the best to all my readers as we enter the Christmas season! May you contemplate the birth of the baby and His significance.
“Knowing God without knowing our own wretchedness makes for pride. Knowing our own wretchedness without knowing God makes for despair. Knowing Jesus Christ strikes the balance because he shows us both God and our own wretchedness.” ― Blaise Pascal
Finally a finished project! This is a beautifully written and shaped pattern. It took way longer than it should have due to knitting injuries. My daughter was excited about the fit and warmth, as our temperatures have turned cool this week.
This week, my son and his wife were able to attend the Dove awards.
Travis is here with Michael Tait of the Newsboys who performed We Believe, written by Travis Ryan, Matthew Hooper and Richie Ficke. It was great for them to meet and celebrate the song together.
Fall is here in full swing. Candles are burning, leaves are falling and and with a new knitting project in hand, I am a happy camper.
