I finished my Mother-in-Law's Birthday Scarf today, after giving it to her still on the needles - so that she could decide how long she wanted it to be, and then I was able to cast off.
I got this BEAUTIFUL knitting pin from my in-law's for Xmas, along with an HBC gift certificate. WOW - I am in LOVE with this pin. I've been wearing it on my shirt all afternoon. It's just so perfect. I've never seen anything like it before. What a perfect gift for someone who knits! I LOVE IT! Isn't it gorgeous?
Sean sported a very cute Santa outfit today. I think my father-in-law got a better picture when Sean didn't mind actually mind wearing the hat. (Eventually he got annoyed and kept pulling it off). I'll show you a picture when I get my father-in-law's photos (maybe tomorrow?) It's very hard to keep an almost 1 year old boy still for photos these days.
This morning we got to my hubby's step-sister's house for just after 9 am - and the kids were very impatient about opening their gifts. As soon as we arrived, they ripped into them! Sean got some cute outfits, and some new toys - and was sure spoiled. A great time was had by all! I spent the day there, taking a nap with Sean just after noon, and Jamie went home for a bit to take a nap. Dinner was nice, actually delicious, and Sean loves turkey, (or any meat) so he really enjoyed it.
It was great to see the family - and we'll get to see everyone again in a few weeks at Sean's first birthday party. Tomorrow Jamie's step-brother is coming in with his wife & son, so we'll be doing more family stuff tomorrow at some point. I'm hoping there is mail tomorrow - I'm expecting a few things in the mail! I am also hoping to finally get some time to make some ginger cookies tomorrow - that would be great. I'm totally craving some!
Don't forget that EVERYTHING at Robyn's Nest is 15% off for our Boxing Day Sale, until January 2nd (Sock Club kits excluded). Absolutely every item is on sale - be sure to check it out!
