Happy All The Holidays A Few Weeks Late

Did you all have a good holiday season? I sure hope so. It feels like it all flew by in such a flurry of family and food. We spent Christmas Eve with Adam's family at his parent's house and we welcomed our new little nephew, Apollo. He was so tiny and beautiful and I can't wait to see all the ways he'll have changed the next time we see him.

We did secret Santa for all the adults in Adam's family. I got his sister and made her a little "spa kit" of sorts. I made her two scrubs and a bath tea, crocheted her a few facecloths and a basket, which ended up not being heavy enough to hold the jars (duh!), but I just gave it to her alongside the other stuff.

(L to R: Lemon & Thyme Salt Scrub, Lavender-Lemon-Mint Bath Tea, Vanilla & Olive Oil Sugar Scrub)
Oh! And I was finally able to give her the baby blanket that I made for Apollo, since I wasn't able to make it the baby shower.

We spent Christmas day at my mom's and had lots of tasty snacks and listened to metal and soul music. It was really great and relaxing. I made my mom a table runner of sorts. I just realized that I didn't take a picture of it all stitched together, but here is one of it all laid out before I started:
I'll just have to make sure that I get a picture of it on her table sometime. 

And well, just like that it's a new year. Crazy how time flies, isn't it? I'm very excited to see what this year will bring. I have a good feeling about it.
