I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday, ours was wonderful and ended on a bad note when my son got mad at me for not letting him do things his way and left in a huff. When it comes to my computer, nobody messes with it;) But, I enjoyed the time with family and my sweet grandsons, so that is what I will remember.
I also finished the stockings, not perfect but they were a pain with the felt, I prefer to felt into wool, much easier and it blends nicer. Plus the roving they give you in kits feels more like acrylic than wool, so not the best product, but still fun to do and an easy way for a beginner to try their hand at needle felting. I forgot the eyes on one, but fixed that before I gave them to the kids.
I outlined the designs in black and added a few embellishments to make them more fun.
It is always fun to have the kids here and Bean loves playing with Nick. Bean found someone who loves leaves as much as he does.
The secret lives of boys and dogs.
Dinner was delicious except for my stuffing. I made my cornbread stuffing but decided to try adding pineapple, bad idea, it was too moist and tasted like desert, way too sweet and mushy.
After dinner was photo time. My son bought a santa suit and Grandpa got to wear it. Well, this is what happened when we tried to get Nick sitting with Santa.
He had no idea it was grandpa and wanted no part of Santa, even a gift wouldn't get him to smile. Alex was quite happy to sit in his lap and loved the beard, it became a struggle to get shots without losing the beard in the process.
As you can see, the fireplace behind santa is actually the tv, works great with the close up of the kids, but shows with a larger photo.
Have a wonderful weekend. We are spending ours, relaxing and long rides to out of the way stores with no crowds.
