Catching Up

Man, how time flies!  It's been too long since my last blog post.  I have a couple of quick updates. 

First, I wanted to post about one more Christmas present I made.  I finally gave them to all the recipients so I can post about it now!  I made some jersey knit bracelets for good friends of mine.  Here is what they look like:

I got a very exciting package in the mail recently.  My fantasy football trophy!!!  I won first place in my league in case you were wondering. : ) I wonder if there is a way to engrave my name in the trophy so that all future recipients know who the first winner of the trophy was. 

Also, my good friend, Lydia, and her baby girl, Isabelle, came up to visit Graham and me from Fort Smith.  We had so much fun!   We played with Graham's toys.  He was VERY territorial.  Normally, he is not that bad, but I guess it's because he's not used to sharing his own toys in his own house.  Either way, Isabelle was so sweet and laid back that she didn't seem to mind Graham grabbing her toys at all. 

Lydia and I also went to see our house which is under construction.  It was looking good!  I gave her a short tour since it was pretty chilly out and the kids were hungry and tired. 

Then we went to eat lunch together.  I had such a good time catching up with her and seeing Isabelle!  They are such blessings in my life, even if I don't get to see them as often as I'd like.  I'd like to make a point to go visit them next time and make that sooner rather than later.  Here are some pictures from our visit together:
