We Three Kings

Last night was the Oldest One's Christmas Concert. I used the video feature on my new camera to tape one of the songs they sang. (Mine is the king that can't stand still.) I didn't know if he'd actually sing since the first few lines are just the kings singing. He's kinda shy that way. But he did sing his lines and all of the other songs, too.

That time of evening his ADHD medication is wearing off, and with all those people he gets kind of nervous. When he gets nervous he rocks back and forth.

This was what it looked like Tuesday morning, the day after the winter storm. It warmed up through the night and rained, so there was no snow in the morning. School was cancelled, though, because most of the back roads weren't fit for the busses. Since then we've gotten some flurries and a very light dusting of snow. Rain is in the forecast for tonight, though, so that little bit will be gone.

I put out the Christmas decorations last weekend. I don't have a whole bunch, but these are my three most favorite cuz I painted them 10-12 years ago. These are the ones that I rant every year about not breaking or it won't be a pretty site. The Santa with the tree lights up, and the ear on the teddy had to be fixed. A long time ago when I had my first house Nala decided to bite the ear off the teddy for some reason. There are a couple of skinny Santas that you can kinda see on the entertainment centre that I painted as well. Nala decapitated one of them, and there's a piece out of a couple of others cuz she used to knock them down. (I should have taken that bucket out of the fireplace before I took the picture. We get a leak sometimes when it rains really hard. I usually just leave it in there unless I put a firelog on. Hopefully we'll be able to get the chimney fixed this spring.)

Currently knitting the last hat. I should get that done tonight. I doubt I'll make my goal of the other work socks and a scarf finished by the end of the weekend. Maybe I'll have to settle for just the scarf. Tomorrow night is the firemen's Christmas party, so there goes the entire evening. Also the firemen's kids Christmas party is Sunday afternoon. Just have to see what I can get done, I guess.

Happy knitting!

I can't believe all that snow disappeared . We still have a ton of it and I'm thoroughly tired of shovelling . Good luck with finishing the Christmas knitting .
