~ stuff ~

I have to show ya'll one of the best gifts I received this Christmas.  My 7 yr. old grandson James gave me this - a package of 2 heart shaped fingernail polishes:

He bought it with his own money and wrapped it himself.  He also gave a set of screwdrivers to his Grandpa and a set of padlocks to his Uncle Bobby.  He's so thoughtful - I just love him silly.  ♥  


I finished up a hat for my great-nephew Justin.  His Mom (my niece Kristal) had asked me a while back if I could make him one, and I'm embarrassed to say that I forgot.  When I crocheted the pink Keppi yarn hat ( for his sister - it reminded me about his hat.  I hope he likes it.

My pattern version is posted here: 


We've got snow!!

p.s. this is not a movie - Google made the picture look like it's snowing.  Pretty cool.  :)
