End of the year stuff

Don't ya love blog friends? My blog friend Gypsy had a contest about your best holiday. I submitted my story about the year we had 2 little kittens who tore our christmas tree apart every night and my husband's quest to keep them away. In the end the kittens won. Random selection sent me this ..... You can see more of Gypsy's yarn in her esty shop. Lovely stuff. Gypsy's daughter got married on the 22nd so there should be some great wedding pics on her blog soon. Happy bride and the mother of the bride did nothing to harm the groom's family so I'd say that's successful.
I was playing with some new toys and made some soap for the grandkids. Crappy first attempt because I didn't read any of the directions. I was too excited to read. Next batch will be much better .... don't think it could be much worse. lol
So we finished our Christmas ham and decided to put the little left and the bone on the bird feeder for the crows. I didn't notice a single crow today but there was this Joey cat bird hanging around.
Working away on D3's shawl. Really nice.
Lovely yarn.
I think we'll be starting off 2008 with a contest. Details tomorrow. Have a safe and happy new year's celebration.

Bet the kiddos will love the soap. My oldest loves fun soaps.

I think you did a great job with the soap! I wanted to do something similar for my kids, but #1 Son is allergic to most soaps, so we had to forego that one.

Lovely soap. I thought you might like the Rudolph yarn since you have those lovely grandchildren. Enjoy and do have a wonderful and Happy New Year.

The soap looks like lots of fun, I bet the kids will love it. Great photo of your cat on the bird-feeder.

Your shawl is coming along great! The color is gorgeous, but I'm biased when it comes to green of any shade. LOL

I see I am not the only one that enjoys feeding the squirrels. We love watching them frolic and play in the snow too.
