Eyes and Candies

Today is a special day for Miss Elaine; it's the first day she gets to wear glasses to school! We picked them up yesterday, and she is delighted that everything is crystal clear. A couple of weeks ago, she misspelled something, putting in an extra letter. When I pointed it out to her, she mentioned that sometimes she sees two things instead of just one! So, off to the optometrist for you, young lady! At first she was a tad upset that she needed them, but we had a bundle of fun choosing frames, and I think the benefit of being able to see everything makes it all worthwhile!

I will get you all a picture of my favourite decorated house, but for now you have to put up with our decorated gingerbread steam train. Can you even tell it's a train, under all that green icing??

I'm looking forward to next year, when Lolly will be starting up a new round of Project Spectrum, I'll be using all that nice yarn in my stash, and all will be well with the world. Okay, maybe that's a bit much, but knitting-wise, it'll be fun. I just have to make it through perhaps one more gift-shopping venture, some dinner-making, a few relatives for lunch and that's that. Oh, and what to do on New Year's Eve?

And to use an old family saying, "Health, wealth, mealth and bealth" to you all!


  1. Elaine looks SO sweet - her glasses suit her so much, now she's just like her cool Mommy!

    As for the gingerbread train, I have to admit i thought it looked more like a little house from Dr.Seuss' Whoville.

    And as for the stash plans... well good luck to ya! ;)


  2. your family is so fun and cool!

    and elaine looks adorable. I was so excited the first time I got age 21.

  3. Tell Miss Elaine that she did a great job choosing her glasses; she looks great! I remember getting my first pair in the 4th grade. The first words out of my mouth were "I can see!"

    Your knitting from your stash is a very brave plan. It'll be fun to see how that goes.

  4. Here is a secret for Elaine. Girls' eyeglasses are actually princess crowns, but worn on the front, rather then the top of her head. Soooo, Merry Christmas, Princess Elaine.
