First, I should start with last week when my special visitors came…
Melissa, Allie, Kallie, and Courtney–who all love me very much! Then, there’s Beth, our adopted
daughter, and Emily, who is home from college! Yay for times when we have lots of friends to come
Now for yesterday…Chelsey and Chip spent almost the entire day together…that was Chip’s goal!
Then, last night, I walked into the living room and Jacque was there with Chelsey and a gift bag. I said,
“What’s this?” Jacque and Chelsey said, “This is your Christmas gift from Emily Lupoli and us!” I said,
“What is it, a knitting lesson?” They looked surprised and said…”Well, sort of!” Low and behold, they
remembered the hundreds of times I said “I wish I could knit,” and they decided to teach me to knit.
So, they presented me with wonderful purple yarn and purple knitting needles, and then they taught me how to
cast on and drop off. Chelsey taught Chip, too. Now look at us!
Here is how much I’ve accomplished so far! Isn’t it looking good?
We might need to have a “knitting night.” I wonder if Jacob is manly
enough to learn to knit? Daniel? Ben? Scott? Yes, Chip is definitely
a real man!
We have a huge musical program at church today, so Bernie was heading
out early for both services…looking good! Yep, he’s pretty amazing.
