Somehow I caught myself a cold at Christmas. Merry Christmas to me
. Luckily it was a pretty quick cold and DH was home to take care of the kiddos.
Wednesday we went to the new Yankee Candle Store out in Williamsburg. Wow - That's a candle store!
No, that's not a mall, it is the candle store - full of candles and other knickknacks just for us candle freaks. Here are some of the pictures I took inside.
After spending half the day there, we went off to Colonial Williamsburg to walk around for a bit. The girls loved it and wanted to go into every building they had. They weren't able to , since I wasn't about to shell out the $$ for a full day ticket if we were only going to be there half a day. But it did give us ideas on where to go this summer.
I got 3 FO's accomplished during my bed rest. This hat came from my new 2006 Knitting Calendar (gotta love my DH!). It is for the newly adopted son of one of DH's co-workers. Here is Bossy modeling it for you - the hat has to be almost fully stretched out to fit her. She also
insisted on wearing
is proudly displaying her "new" scarf. It is actually the one I made for her sister last year but she claimed it first for this year.
The other 2 are a hat and scarf set I made for my step-MIL. It was supposed to be a Christmas present, but she went out of state so we are having the celebration sometime next year. Neither of the kiddos wanted to model it, so Princess Bear offered up her services.
I'm hoping everyone of you has a great New Year!

I love candles!! I work in retail, and when I go down the candle isle, I sometimes have to stop and smell.
Wish I could take winter vactions. Would love that.
Sounds like you had a great time.
Keep on blogging
Hope you're feeling better. What a time to catch a cold!
You went to one of my favorite places for Christmas. Williamsburg is amazing any time, but to see it dressed up for the holiday is extraordinary. Good work, great looking blog
You are a knitting machine! I'd love to get down to Williamsburg. I don't think I've been there since I was like 10!
