Waiting.........

Last year at this time I was waiting to have gall bladder surgery just a few days before Christmas; this year we all are waiting for much more pleasant events. Just a week ago, we learned that "Chicago" is coming! And arriving on Christmas Eve!



Here's what Daniel's doing to pass the time:




And I've been finishing up some projects. This jumper was supposed to be for Sophia's birthday last August but life intervened. Now I just need to find a little shirt and some tights to go with it.

Depending on when Baby arrives, these will either be a Christmas gift or a welcome gift.







Meanwhile, we're all still waiting.......

Wonderful news Judy!! I am excited for you...you are going to have one busy and very merry Christmas! Love the jumper and the baby's gift. You are so talented. So let me know where those beginning knitting lessons are ok? My MIL arrives tomorrow and we are looking forward to a quiet holiday of reading, watching movies, eating, and just being together. (oh yea, and I'll probably still do some more packing. lol!)

Yeah for Chicago! I'm glad you are going to see your grandkids for Christmas.

Cute knitting --- I love the little hoodie!

Yay! The kids are coming, the kids are coming....

And, I suppose if you have to wait, it's nice to do it this time of year when there are lots of distractions!

Merry Christmas Judy!

I'll take that little blue sweater!

I had a baby near the Christmas season (Jan 5) and having everyone ask me "Now?" every 5 minutes was not much fun! Hopefully, you are all more patient.

My mother decided not to wait and popped me out early - two weeks before Christmas. The little jumper is too cute for words. Is that the Babies and Bears cardigan? I think I've made at least 8 of them. What a joyous Christmas you are going to have!
