Holiday Highlights

Since I left for over a week, I feel that it's only fair to catch you up on what has been filling my schedule. Here are some of my favorite moments from my week off:

Christmas Eve night spent quietly at home.

The Gosselin girl's design summit '09. Yes, my maiden name is Gosselin, and no, I don't know Jon, Kate, or any of the 8! My sisters, Mother and I went through knitting patterns, color books, and clothing catalogs to get design ideas for knitwear. We didn't accomplish all that much, but it was still a lot of fun!

'Big kid' sleep over complete with Pizza, strawberry milk, and the Princess Bride.

Best friends(who live over 1000 miles away from each other) with matching hats and mittens (crocheted by my Mother-in-Law).

The simple pleasure of playing in a big box.

Having my whole family together (I wish it could happen more often):
I did take a break from all the slipper making and managed to complete a pair of mittens for myself. I almost forgot how much I love knitting for fun! I have already been wearing them all over town...pictures tomorrow!


  1. Yay! I'm so glad you are back, and with lots of pictures! All of the blogs went away for the holidays! I guess you were all much busier than I :) Looks like you had an awesome week!

  2. Looks like a wonderful holiday! Happy new year!

  3. What a fun time! Love the mischevious look of the little gal playing in the box! So glad to have you back.

  4. It was fun...too bad it went by so quick. Yeah, Kaiyah's mischevious look in the box is priceless.

  5. What a great holiday! I love the picture in the box - the little one in the back corner looks like she is having too much fun! Happy New Year!

  6. I wish my family got together for a design meeting! That sounds like so much fun. Love the matching winter gear, too :)

  7. The funny thing is... Kaiyah often has a look on her face like that... so perfect. Amanda

  8. A very very very belated happy get together greetings to you and your family :)
