The Holidays are Coming!

I am trying to come up with some ideas of things to make for Christmas gifts. I am knitting Anna and Brian blankets, but I am thinking about making some jewelry, possibly some stitch markers and maybe a cute tote bag that I have been intending to make for a while now. Randy and I are seriously considering going away for the holidays. With our kids all over the place, it just isn't the same anymore. It is always such a hassle to try and get them all together at the same time and almost always, someone can't make it. It would be less stress for all of us if we go away. If you have any ideas for Christmas gifts, please comment. I would love to hear what you are making!

Catching Up

It is so hard to believe that I have not posted for almost 3 months! Where does this time go? I started a new job and have had family issues, but it sure has passed quickly.

I have several projects going on right now, knitting and otherwise and I am always trying to find a way to stay organized as I run 100 miles an hour everyday. I thought that when I became an empty nester, I would have all this free time to sit on the deck and drink lemonade, but I am just as busy as ever, maybe more so.

Brian and Anna are getting so big and Michael is in college! Benjamin is in high school and playing football. They are all so sweet! I am one lucky Nanny/Mommo!
