Well, I have decided against sending Christmas/Holiday cards this year. The last one we received–with the letter detailing their perfect lives–put me over the edge. To heck with it! I feel a little bit bad but I am almost over it.
I haven’t felt like knitting…at all. It could be the pressure of these stinkin’ scarves. Can you sense the ba humbug around here? I had just finished the one for the Resource Room teacher and was getting ready to drop my stitches when I noticed my count was off. I had inadvertently decreased 2 stitches somewhere. I decided to modify my drops by recalculating with my new numbers. Well, I guess I found the lost stitches. What was meant to be a four stitch band of knitting became six–much too wide! RIP! And we all know how well mohair yarns rip. Ugh.
Today I have to tidy up. My MIL is coming over this evening to hang out with Owen as Gracie and Cameron have a holiday event at school that Owen would not enjoy. And Ann is coming over tomorrow. I would like to make some cookies too…must impress Ann with my culinary wonders!
We had Owen’s Holiday party yesterday. It was a lot of fun. It was nice to be so relaxed and among people who "get it". There were a couple of bouncy castles, pizza, crafts and Santa. Owen gave Santa a High 5 and even hugged him! Woohoo. They were videotaping siblings for the Dinner Dance Video–the annual tear jerker. I knew Gracie would do the video beautifully but I was reluctant to put Cameron in as he has some difficulty expressing himself. Gracie was fabulous and got compliments all around. Although her hair was pretty messy from bouncing and she hadn’t washed all of the conditioner out–so there was a greasy patch! Cameron was a big hit! A couple of my favorites were when asked what he wants to be when he grows up, he said a vet. The videographer asked, "What?" and Cam said, "You know, a vegetarian." And when asked one word to describe his brother, Cam said, "I love him."
