We have had a very nice Christmas Day! Of course, I had to stay up until 3:30 a.m. for the past two nights in order to finish up all the projects I had planned for gifts. We spent Christmas Eve at Amy’s house, eating a nice supper, opening presents, and playing games. Amy, Jessica, and I won the Taboo game – Amy’s game from 1989.
Jessica also played Twister with Abby and Megan, and Bubba and Sayaka played Betty Spaghetti with the girls.
Abby got glasses on Monday, and this was the first chance we had to see her wearing them. She looks so cute!
We didn’t start opening presents this morning until about 11:00. It’s nice to be able to sleep in after staying up so late the night before! Sayaka bought Scrabble for Bubba so they played a couple games of it this afternoon. I played part of one game and didn’t do so well. I went around and helped the others during the second game and had better luck then! The kids enjoyed running around and also playing with their new toys.
I made some gifts this year that seemed to be much appreciated. I’d made some fingerless gloves for Amy who said her hands get cold when she’s typing at night, so the gloves would be perfect for that job. Sayaka and Jessica liked their fingerless gloves, too.
I made Jessica a scarf from a soft merino yarn I bought in Italy this summer.
I think that’s the nicest yarn I’ve ever worked with! The sales clerk tried to convince me to buy more of that particular yarn and I wish I would have listened to her.
Jeremy, Lois, and Peyton also visited us today, and brought food to add to our meals. Peyton has an active imagination. He kept “losing his leg” and then he would suddenly have his leg back!
Tomorrow morning, we’re going to take a quick trip to visit Brian and his family. Becca would like to have some leg warmers, so I hope to get them started (and hopefully finished) on our 5 hour trip to their house!
