He came home for ten days in August and we have been doing video chats as best we can. So nice to have him in person!!
Our young warrior, who is now finished with his four years in the Marine Corps but has settled far away for school and work, arrived two days later to spend a week. Seems to be just what the doctor ordered for the baby momma. I came home from church last night to find elves busy at work with much laughter and a chocolate war....lights were on the tree, in the windows, and peanut butter balls were being made and dipped. My cup is full and overflowing at the moment. Hopefully, we'll get my parents home for Christmas!

The most fun Christmas album hubby and I ever purchased. You should be able to check here to hear some samples. I must find my record player and stash of Christmas records. These three round out the playlist.....and oh the memories they bring to mind.

Well, I realized I can't knit very well on circular needles. No tension and the stocking ended up ridiculously large and baggy!!! The foot is great - that's on double pointed needles and nice and snug....although I goofed and didn't start the red for the heel till it was almost too late! I have been pulling out the quilt some evenings to hand quilt a block or two. I'm in no rush to finish it at this point. Other than that, I've been trying to fill in for the baby momma who injured her shoulder and so I'm exhausted....
