Friday Fave Five

Hosted by Susanne, go here to join in!

1) Secret Pal package: I received my second secret swap pal package this week. It had some wonderfully soft yarn, a good book, along with some coloured pencils and notebook. It made me happy just to rub the soft yarn on my cheek. :)

2) Mountains: The North Shore Mountains look so pretty all covered in snow.

3) White Christmas: We might have a white Christmas this year. Or as close as we've had in a long time. It's supposed to snow on Sunday and be very cold for the following week. With temps in the zero and below range any snow we get won't be melted before Christmas. Ohhhh, so pretty!

4) Knitting Progress: I finished the Swiffer cover for my friend. I'm at the point in my top-down sweater where the arms have been separated. Seeing progress encourages me to keep knitting more. (Haven't had much time to do that lately.)

5) Presents: I've finishing all the gift shopping and I only have one more gift to wrap.

And one bonus:

6) My nephew: I spent a bunch of time with my sister and 7 1/2 month old nephew yesterday. He is trying to "walk"! If you hold his hands he moves his feet and "walks". He's too young to pull himself to an upright position, but his mom better watch out when he does learn! He has also learned to crawl but can only go backwards! Silly boy! :P

Awww, love it when they're learning to scoot around.

Yeah, for Secret Santa's. So much fun!

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Julia!

I would love to have a white Christmas! We are a little far south we just get cold rain.
Nieces and nephews are so much fun - you get to spoil them and give them back! Heehee!
Can't wait to see pictures your snow and the sweater!
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
