Merry Christmas

The past few weeks have gone by in a blur. I have absolutely no knitting news to show or report really. I finished my sweater but have not assembled it. I did make a scarf for a gift and I am still working on a pair of socks for a dear friend. She will get them after Christmas. I had a little relapse last week and had to be in bed for 2 days but with pain meds, advil, and the heating pad I was good to go by Friday. I didn't feel like knitting those days and just kind of slept. I have finished all my shopping, mailed the gifts that needed to be sent off, and I have wrapped almost everything. I have a few things left to do. The biggest thing is Christmas cards. I usually have those done early December but not this year. I did have a Christmas cookie exchange on Sunday that was a huge success. I have been to several in the past but never hosted my own and all my guest were first timers. It was so much fun and nobody brought the same cookie as anyone else. I had 14 guests and we all walked away with tons and tons of cookies! I was elected to host this event every year. I would love to and hope the participant list grows! I made lots of appetizers to snack on so that we wouldn't eat the cookies. My oldest son is taking finals this week. I've helped him go over some of the reviews. Let me just say this, I am so glad I am past all that! If I wasn't holding the review with the answers he'd have me figured out. My youngest son has a Christmas party on Thursday and then we officially start our Christmas holidays. My oldest son is going skiing with our church youth group the day after Christmas in Colorado. I'm sure it is more winter like weather there than we have been having here. We did have a week of cold weather and then it turned to summer again. Sorry for the no knitting news but I am slowly getting the socks done.
