Last night, Nicole sent me this on FB and my response:
I called her and she said that when it’s cold, Addie only wants to wear the socks I made her. She said they’re the only ones that keep her toes warm. How sweet is that??
So, in addition to finishing the unicorn sweater, finishing Nicole’s sweater, making 3 aprons, and making a vest . . I need to make socks to keep a little girl’s toes warm. And, I had kinda entertained the idea of making a pair of fingerless mitts for the lady who keeps Addie and another pair for the lady who helps the kids and parents reunite after school every afternoon. I might have waited a little too late to get started but the apron idea and the two pairs of mitts just came to me recently and the socks . . I just heard about those last night. I’ll do what I can do and the rest will just have to wait. I can make Addies socks and the vest while I’m there after Christmas. Nicole’s sewing machine will be fine . . it’s just like the one I would have used here to make it.
I was just thinking . . this time 10 years ago, I’d never met Nicole, there was no Addie and now . . they are the light of my life.
Just so Chad isn’t left out, he called yesterday and was telling me all about the wood he found at a local sawmill.
He is so into his woodturning. I wish Vince was closer so they could do woodturning together.
It was 12 years ago that we left Kentucky and if someone had asked me if I ever thought Chad would be the man he is today, and he’d give me the best daughter-in-law ever, and that wonderful granddaughter . . and his hobbies would be hunting and fishing and working with wood . . I would never have believed it.
I love that family! I’m so thrilled to get to spend Christmas with them this year.
