Even through the hustle and bustle of the season, we had a beautiful Christmas. Since Christmas day landed on the Lord's Day, we had our family event on Christmas Eve and then drove out to Clear Lake to see my grandparents. On Sunday, we had a service which included a series of Carols and Lessons. We covered the prophecies concerning Christ, the advent and then His birth. After service, we celebrated all day with some friends from church. 'Twas a pleasant day altogether.

We didn't do much for New Year's Eve this year. We had a nice dinner and then watched some humorous evangelical short films until midnight. After the big display of fireworks began, I played the party pooper and went to bed. :) Something very abnormal for me to do. Yesterday after service we had a Psalm Sing and we practiced three Psalms. The alto section was much larger than the soprano, and the poor tenor section consisted only of three tenors. :) But all in all, even with some people missing, the singing was beautiful. Two of the families know the Psalms fairly well, (one much more so than the other, but...) and the rest of the families are getting them down nicely.

So, there is a short update on our busy lives! I pray that the Lord blessed you with a very merry Christmas and that He will continue to bless you throughout the new year!

    Thanks for sharing your update. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year also. It is actually nice to slow down around here and hopefully start back up some type of routine and disciplines. Lord willing we will cross paths this year. Stay strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

    can you give me the rest of the directions for the hat please.
    I did all the directions you gave me.

  3. lol, Sarah. You did that really fast! Very impressive. I expect to see the hat on Sunday, you do know that, don't you?;-)

    Where did you leave off?

  4. I did two rows of knit two together. I have 18 loops now. thanks

  5. Did you purl in between?

  6. Sarah6:04 PM

    Yes i did.

  7. Alrighty then, keep your loops on the knitting needle, but cut the yarn to a good length so as not to let any slip off. Take a large needle and thread it with your yarn and starting from the end of the loops, slip your needle through the loops until you have them all threaded.

    Slide the loops off of the knitting needle and tie one end of yarn to the other so that your loops don't slide off. Put the right sides of your hat together and then sew along the edges, starting from the top and working down.

    When you get to the bottom, tie off and cut any remaining yarn. Turn your hat right side out, and you should be done! :)

    I know this sounds confusing, so if you want to, I can show you on Sunday.

    thankyou so much for helping me.

  9. You are ever so welcome, my dearie! Can't wait to see it on Sunday!

    Send my love to your family! :)
