I've Arrived at a Crochet Crossroads

Monday, November 26, 2012 Even though it was a terrifically busy weekend, that has never stopped me from fitting in crochet. This time, however, I'm at a Crochet Crossroads! The massive Christmas surprise for Chloe is done and well ahead of schedule. Jack's Notre Dame colors cap is done. Now, I either start the next project on my to-do list or I buckle down and get to the basement and start painting on the crochet art project that has been in my head for quite some time. There is also a bead-inspired art project swirling around in my head. It is time to do art! Our Thanksgiving weekend was action packed. From sitting around watching the "Rumba" chase the kids to the Carrie Underwood concert at Bankers Life Arena in Indianapolis, with lots of turkey, our granddaughter's third birthday and our 45th Anniversary thrown in, it was truly a fantastic whirlwind. Here are some highlights:
Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes with apricots, brussel sprouts and cranberry sauce.
I cooked all day and Alan and I enjoyed the feast by ourselves while we waiting on the kids to do their "thing" with the in-laws. Everyone arrived about 5:00 and the appetizers and desserts were still to come. It was so hectic with the little ones getting their thrills from the chase of the Rumba, that I took no pictures. Friday, we re-grouped, wrapped the birthday presents and packed them in the car to head out to Indianapolis on Saturday for Chloe's third birthday party.
Girls' Night Out: Sister in Law, Lynn and her clan arrived from Ft. Wayne and we all went to the Carrie Underwood concert at Banker's Life Arena, Indianapolis. It was a fun time and great performance.
Nicole's Mother-In-Law, Jane came too.
The girls are rockin' out-it's the bright lights!
Sunday: Happy Anniversary, Alan! I doubt we'll have 45 more, but hopefully we'll have many more! Chloe let Gigi French-braid her hair!

I'm sure I'm not the first one to observe that Nicole bears a remarkable resemblance to your mother!
