Oh, so much to be grateful for. Life is so busy this time of year, I find it hard to take the necessary moments to enjoy it all. After a long week of stomach flu, we all felt so thankful to share beautiful meals with the our family. Thank you, Barbara and Dave, for hosting. It was so nice to relax and unwind with family. I got plenty of time to knit, read and sip tea contentedly. So, here are a few of our completed projects and photos of the cute cousins. Thank you, Aunt Jude, for the festive children's table decoration and costume.

And I received this really special surprise on my doorstep when we were away. It was a giveaway from the sweet mama at this blog. Thank you, zencrafter, for your inspiration and your most thoughtful package of goodies! What a sheer delight!

In gratitude and with with warmest blessings to you on the first eve of advent!
