Christmas Wrap-Up

Mika, I think I see Santa!!
Where!? Where!?

I've been a bad blogger of late, just a little too overwhelmed with the Holiday madness. Here's my Christmas Scorecard Update:

Christmas cards written = Check!
Cookies baked = still 0 but some lovely friends have given me treats
Cards addressed = Check!
Presents wrapped = Check!
Halls decked = Check!
Christmas gifts knitted = 4/5 (Mama gets a raincheck)
Christmas shopping Done= Check!
House ready for guests = If you don't open the closets, what the heck, just come on over and have a glass of wine: Check!

So what have I been up to? In no particular order:

Just this morning, I went on a last-minute mission trip to Target and scored a parking place near the front! It's a Christmas Miracle!
On Saturday night I hosted my 5th annual Fondue party (3 kinds of cheese fondue + 2 types of chocolate) for some fabulous friends I made at a former job and here's the 1AM party aftermath:

I finished up the Knucks for my sister:

And the golf club covers for my Dad:

Last Sunday, LCK and Soon to be Blogging Friend, B, came over for a knitted ornament swap and toasted my Birthday with some cake and champagne:

Betts made this gorgeous beaded lace ornament:

LCK made this adorable stocking ornament:

And I made some silly snowmen:

Merry Christmas Knitty Pals!

God Bless you all! I hope Santa is good to you all!

But...what if I want to open the closets? Guess I'll just have to getcha liquored up enough so you won't notice. ;)

All the FOs and ornaments look great! Merry Christmas!
