I've been feeling very stressed this holiday season. I should start earlier with my preparation. I say this every year, but I don't do it. Therefore, I get stressed. My jaw hurts from clenching it so tight, and my shoulders are permanently hunched, I think. I've finally decided to try and let it go. If I don't do everything that I think I need to do before Christmas, so what? The world will keep spinning, and life will go on.
But ... if you have been wondering where I've been and what I've been up to, here are some photos to answer your questions.
This handsome gentleman is my great grandfather.
And this beautiful lady is my great grandmother.
These are the Christmas dresses I made for granddaughters Leighton and Kathleen, finally mailed off to Arkansas yesterday. I mailed them priority, and I am praying they will get there by Tuesday at the latest.
And here's 2-year-old Bobby peeking in while we're taking the photos of the dresses. He keeps me hopping on the 4 days a week he is here, but he is a joy to have around.
I have also complete some knitting projects, but since they are gifts, I can't show them now.
With all of the hubbub and stress around here, I just keep reminding myself that Jesus is the reason for the season. And deep breathing, lots of deep breathing!
