How was your holiday?

I finished my socks for Lucy christmas eve. These are Opal Neon. They are super bright and happy socks.

And of course with the left over sock yarn these baby socks materialized from nowhere.

My sister in law does some wonderful stuff with scrapbooking. She had made all the favors for my neice's wedding shower and wedding. These were some of the things she made for Christmas. Each ornament was filled with candy (notice past tense about the candy) and each one was more beautiful than the last.
So for the last 13 yrs I've been tooling around town in a 1993 Ford Taurus station wagon. I love that car. Unfortunately after 13 yrs the old ford was worn out. Leaking oil, coolant, etc. The time had come to replace my beloved wagon.


This is my new baby. Quite a difference from the old car but I'm getting to love this one. My only concern in buying another car? "Is there room for 3 car seats in the backseat so I can tote my grandkids around?" The sales guy looked at me like I was nuts but seriously that was my only concern.

Glad you managed to find a car to fit all of the grandkids! It looks wonderful.

Those ornaments are stunning.

Now that's a sharp looking car. I had to buy a new car this year too. I like it, but it's not as good in the snow as my old one was.

LOVE the socks!!!

And great car. Yes it's good to see you have your priorities straight, gotta have room in the backseat for car seats and room in the trunk for yarn.

I wish baby socks would just appear at my house (sigh). Beautiful car. Do 3 car seats fit in there?

Cute car! I had to buy a new car this year too. The old one just had too many problems. My main concern was that it was big enough to hold the ferrets' travel cage. I like the ornaments your SIL made.

I am glad to see that you have the priorities straight in the car shopping requirements .... but was there any doubt. Love the color of the new car.
