The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

Another Christmas has come and gone. There were gifts under the tree.

And smiling children.

And yummy cinnamon rolls to be eaten for breakfast.

After the flurry of activity at our house on Christmas morning, we packed up and headed to Cincinnati to spend Christmas evening with my family. This year all of my siblings were together for a few moments in the evening.

The kids and I stayed at my sister's place for a few days. The kids had fun hanging with their cousins. They got to ice skate at Fountain Square, go to top of Carew Tower and view Cincinnati from the Observation Deck, and visit Krohn Conservatory.

We are back home now. I'm off work for the rest of the week and plan to relax, watch football, get my exercise routine back into gear, and knit. I have a Just Enough Ruffles scarf to finish. Other projects are waiting in the wings, including more than a few UFOs.

While watching the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl, I will be wearing the toasty warm socks my sister made for me. They are made from her own homespun. They fit perfectly!!
