Hope everyone had a great Christmas! My kids and grand-kids came over and we exchanged gifts. Can you tell how excited the grand-kids are?
Micki and I hit the after-Christmas sales and I bought a 7-ft prelit tree and a 3-ft black tree. I also bought some yarn to start a new project. I'm supposed to keep a secret for another few weeks but maybe you can guess what the secret is by the colors of my new project....

No, not really, but Justin did get a small buck this morning.
Gavin and Sloan helped him drag it out of the woods. It weighed 160 pounds.
I've been making a few stockings that everyone seems to be making this year. Pattern here
The last one is for a big foot! I didn't count my rows correctly ;-( Oh well, nobody has to know but me! I had to go to Hobby Lobby this morning to get some more yarn to finish my afghan and found some buttons to put on some of the stockings. I'll show you those later. Have a great weekend!

Last night my sister, Pam, her daughter, Sayra, and I went on the 29th Annual Christmas in Olde York home tour. What magnificent old homes! The first was the Episcopal Church Home for Children chapel. This was on the site of the Kings Mountain Military Academy established in 1857. Beautiful!
The second home on the tour was the most interesting one. Decorations galore! This is the Mackorell House established in 1920.
That's Pam and Sayra as we were leaving. Here are some more photos to drool over...
This is the pool house!
I have a few more photos, but blogger is working slow! Hope you have a great week!
