Christmas Eve at our house

As usual, we celebrated Christmas with Roger's mom and family. I always have a craft for the kids, but htis year I included everyone in the activity - decorating teeny-tiny sweaters! But first, on Thursday Lisa and Alicia came over to make tamales.
We made a whole bunch.
I finally finished my hooked rug. I designed it myself from a Christmas card Brenda gave us two years ago.
There's no artist listed on the card, but if you know who this talented person is please let me know.
The children and the grown-ups enjoyed the sweaters. Jeff used one as a beer coozie.
So nice to see everyone together.

The Final Count

The final tally of my "Fifty-two pairs in 2010" is less than planned but doesn't match my enthusiasm for my project. I think I may have made it into the double-digits. I am able to knit a pair in a few days tops, which gives you an idea of how busy I am otherwise.
Some current projects have been the teenty-tiny sweaters. We have a huge party each year on Christmas Eve with Roger's family and I always have some crafty activity planned for the kids. The little girls in the family outnumber the boys - which always makes a huge difference in how one's craft project is received. The boys are usually bundled up and thrown outside to the wolves until it's time to open presents. Because of technival difficulties, I'm unable to post my picures at this time but will ASAP.
