What I did get for Christmas.

I may not have gotten the number one thing on my list to Santa this year, but that is why my lists were always two pages long as a kid. I always figured I should give Santa some options.

I am very happy to report that I got three things on my very short list this year plus a surprise or two. Not a bad haul in my opinion. Hubby gave me an amazing camera that is far too amazing for my amateur photo skills at this point. I promised I would learn though and learn I will. I also had a wonderful time with my family and I worked very hard to make sure that this year went perfectly for everyone.

Then, my mother in law sent me the greatest gift card I have ever received! It was the one thing I kept holding my breath for. She couldn't send me what I wanted but she made sure I could get it myself and I love her dearly for it! My aunt also came through with that gift too and a really cool gadget to go with it!

Yes. She got me yarn! The kids at school laughed at me when I told them what I got. One of my second graders tapped me on the shoulder very seriously and motioned for me to come closer. I leaned down and she whispered in my ear, "Mrs. Arian, that isn't exactly good. Yarn is sorta like coal. You need to work on that I think." If you asked me, I thought it was pretty great!

Now, if you will excuse me, I need to go out in the 30 degree night with an insanely cold wind chill and find a fugitive dog. You should head over to Mel's and check out what the rest of the class is showing!

I loved the wisdom that the small kid heaped onto you. That was so very innocent.

Congrats on being given such a beautiful gift. Do share as to what you made out of it.

hmmm, we all see the pleasure in different things!! That child could only see that knitting things is hard work, whereas you see the pleasure in making things!

have fun with your yarn!!

I'm with the kid on the yarn! (But I'm glad it made you happy, and thankful that SOMEONE is crafty, because I sure am not!)
