I enjoyed the day with my family. This year as always I am thankful for the time I have with my family. Time with loved ones is precious and I appreciate these days when we can all be together. I miss those who are not with us this year, but they will always be with us in our hearts and their presence is and always will be felt with the love we all share together for them and for one another.
Russell's 18th Birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year

Knit Mania..SOCKS!

I have spent the winter knitting socks, socks, and more socks! I find it very relaxing to knit. I like the feel of the yarn as it runs through my fingers and I like the gentle clicking sound the needles make as I knit. Below are some pics of my socks. The first pic is my first pair. Then I went on to the other pairs. I am now knitting my fifth pair of socks. I decided to knit socks because I wanted to knit something new that I had not tried before and I found it addicting. The project stays small, so I don't have to hold heavy projects while I knit them and I can use these all year round if I want to. They have kept my feet warm and cozy all winter.

Christmas Day 2009

The banner above was made using the GIMP. The ornaments in the picture are from my Christmas tree. GIMP stands for Graphic Image Manipulation Program and is a free program that is similar to Photoshop.
I enjoyed spending Christmas Day with my family. Below clockwise from Shanna are my Aunt Karen, cousin Sheryl, my Dad, my cousin Russell, Jim (Sheryl's husband) and me.
Kristin went incognito to Christmas. Russell kept calling her Lindsey.
Below is my Aunt Joann (Sheryl's mom) with her new great grandson Brayden.
The picture of Shanna below was taken Christmas night in our front yard with my camera on the night setting.
Russell and Kristin in our front yard Christmas night.
Shanna, Mocha, and me.
I had fun playing with the light settings on my camera. This is one of my favorite ornaments.
Shanna put up the little tree this year, next year I think we will put the big one up again because I had a lot of fun playing with my camera and the light settings.
Shanna put up all the lights and decorations this year. This is a picture of the front of our house Christmas night.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas this year!
