and there are worse ways of making an entrance, so this will do. I didn't realize how long I have been missing until I updated the "finishes" last evening. Sorry about that. I'll try to do better, but everything seems to be tired, all at the same time! I do have a finish, my 3rd, for the challenge. It's been completed for a couple of weeks I just haven't gotten a picture taken. It's the tutorial runner, completed at last! I made extra units, making it longer than ever before. It's for my coffee table. I'm thinking about putting the Christmas tree on the coffee table this year. I think this will sort of take the place of a traditional tree skirt. We'll see if I like that or not. I did have a lovely Thanksgiving with my family. Here are a couple of pictures taken by DD#1 with my camera.
This is Hailey Marie. She's 18 months now, and quite a handful in more way than one. She's big for her age and we tend to forget how young she is. All 5 of my children were at DD#2's house this year. They bought a new home in August and this is the first time she's entertained her family. We sat down to dinner at 3, with 10 adults and 11 grandchildren asking for another years blessings. The food was delicious and the it was enjoyed by all. Hailey saved room for her bottle and blanket.
This could be called the "boys table", with 7 of my grandsons eating together. Baby L was in his highchair. I imagine next year he'll be at the boys table too. The 3 granddaughers were at the kitchen table, with me...what fun! From 18 yrs to 18 months, with a 4 year old in the middle *VBS*
I have pictures of the whole group, chaos at its best, but those pictures are sitting at Snapfish, sent by DD#1. I have to see if I can figure out how to get them into my Picasa album.
