Merry Christmas!

 We spent the weekend at Grandma's house. Bug is nearly as tall as her grandma, now.

Bug picked out some scented candles for her grandma. They spent some time together talking about them and smelling them. 

Bug was thrilled to get a DVD of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Bug's cousin liked the bag that I made for her. 

There was some concern over whether Bug had been good enough for Santa to pay a visit...and whether or not he'd know that she was at Grandma's house. She was happy to find a full stocking in the morning. 

 This tornado lab was a bit hit! We'll be trying it out in the next day or two.

Not sure what happened just before this...

 This notepad has the Chinese character for "love" on it. 

Almost home!

Christmas, part 1

 We had Christmast with my family last night. Good food, fun conversations, lots of trees....

Before we left our house, we gave Bug her "big gift", as we thought that she would enjoy it during the 1.5 hour drive. What could it be?!

Oh, she sees the word "Amazon" and thinks that she knows...

She's correct! A Kindle Touch. 

She seems a bit worried here....

Hmm...this is pretty cool. 

Aunt Peg had a big tree...

A REALLY big tree...

Aunt Pat made some crazy slippers for Bug, who appears to have a broken neck. 

 I saw my nephew a couple of months ago and after confirming that he'd like me to knit a hat for him, we discussed style, color, etc. I think he learned a lesson after last Christmas....although I think that he was a bit disappointed in the wrapping. Not even one piece of tape. Wait until next year!

The Green Bay Packers are 12-0. As Bug said to her dad after the game (which she did not watch) "The Packers sent those Giants packing!" What a stressful game to watch. Definitely the toughest one this season so far.

Now, back to what this blog is about...Bug! She's enjoying her new Girl Scout troop which makes me very happy. They were the biggest cookie sellers in town! She's still working on learning Chinese. Our class is switching to the Better Chinese books that we were using on our own and I think that she will find the class more enjoyable now.
