Thanksgiving is gone and "It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas

Hi There Friends...
Thanks so much for all your kind and nice comments. You are the reason I come back here (almost) every week and I'm so grateful and thankful for you ... We had a wonderful and not as quiet as I was hoping for Holiday, but we had a great time with our family and then on Saturday we had another feast with our friends...
We all enjoyed and probably eat a lot more than we should've ... but we don't do that every day so it was just fine...
I was working on doing a leaf to put on my table ...
My builder (and now friend), Kristy told me about this pattern which I absolutely love.  It's on Ravelry and you find as Wolly Acorn and Oak Leaf designed by Marie Mayhem.

   It Looked great when I had the table all set up, with a table cloth it looked so pretty. Unfortunately I have been getting home so late that we really do not have any light to take good pictures...So that is all I have for now.

I bought the yarn and my plan is to have 2 more done. They are all different colors and I think it will look great when they are all together, but I really don't think I'll get to it again till next year as I won't really put them on the table till next fall...
I can't wait to work on them again and see it all together.
I also bought some yarn for more hats ...

I'm sooooo very excited as I had been wanting  this yarn for such a long time. I found it at one of our local yarn shops and could not resist ... so 3 more hats will be born before Christmas...
and talking about Christmas ... I did a little decorating this weekend also. The Christmas tree is not decorated yet ... just lights... but it does give the feeling that "it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas" around here ... and I love it .

 I just love this santa ... he has such a great attitude and he looks so happy ...
And this is my nutcracker collection. My husband and the kids have giving me one every year for the 24 years we have been married.

A couple of years ago I made the stockings for us and I was so happy they turned out cute and fun ....

I know you cannot really see our Christmas tree very well, but I thought this picture turned out  really fun ... When the tree is decorated I will show it again soon ...
I hope you are enjoying the beginning of your Christmas season and that you are enjoying time with your families, loved ones and friends whichever way you celebrate...
I'm very happy you are here to "see" me and wish you a wonderful Christmas month ...
