Ten Lords-a-Leaping...






We had our last family party in Philadelphia tonight and it was very nice.  My brother- and sister-in-law hosted my husband's side of the family and the food that they made was so delicious.  Everything was prepared when we arrived and instead of having a formal sit down meal, we just grazed.  There was a lovely cheeseboard with gourmet cheeses, charcuterie, and olives, plus homemade meatballs, honey glazed chicken wings, and spare rib stew that was served over tiny pasta.  

We do a Secret Santa gift exchange with the adults in the family and this year, my father-in-law picked me!  My mother helped him get me the BEST gift:  2 skeins of Madeline Tosh DK in the Great Grey Owl colorway.  It is so gorgeous and I cannot wait to plan out what it will become.

There are only two days left of the Twelve Days of Christmas and we plan to enjoy them to the fullest.  I would like to finish my shawl (I have to do two more rows, cast off, and block it), work on a pretty puzzle my sister gave us for Christmas, and bake one or two goodies.  I have been reveling in these wonderful days and hate to see them end.  There is such a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks though!

Very true dear that Philadelphia is a beautiful place. I never visited there but I heard a lot about that so, really want to see that. I am sure you had enjoyed your party there. This month I am going to enjoy birthday party of my friend at event venue Chicago, and I hope I enjoy there a lot.
