Our daughter and son in law arrived on Saturday for their Christmas visit.  Saturday was our second celebration with lots of good food and MORE presents.  My house is very full and if you have been reading this blog for years you know the coffee table piles are driving me crazy.  I am trying my best to not look at the table.

The weekend was jam packed with lots of busy work entertaining guests.  I've barely knit a row of anything nor have I read a page from any book.  Everyone leaves on January 2nd and I go back to babysitting.  I'll have plenty of time to knit and read in the new year. 

Frodo is so happy the whole family is together and he takes turns sitting beside his favorite human.  Holly has been hiding from everyone.  Once in a while she braves the people only to retreat.  She is so shy.  In spite of her stress and fear, she willingly comes up to me for pets - once her devotion is won over, she is steady and true.

How was your weekend?

Happy New Year's Day to you all!  May 2019 be filled with good health and happiness.


  1. Happy New Year to you! Enjoy your time with your family!

  2. What a lovely gathering. Turn your eyes away from the piles and enjoy your famy. Happy New Year!!

  3. Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

  4. Enjoy the fun (and even the mess!) of having everyone there, and I wish you and your whole family a very Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year! Holly loves it when Sara visits - a willing lap and LOTS of petting!

  6. Looks like you have had a wonderful time. Happy New Year!

  7. Happy New Year to you and yours! Looks like a fabulous time for all. I know - I don't like clutter or piles either but it does mean you have a houseful of your favorite people. My coffee table is half in the Christmas mode and half not. I left all the Christmas picture books out in case my grands call and want to "read please Grammy."

  8. I love how you havea full house many times during the year. LOVE Frodo.
