Welcome to what happens when I crochet. Lately, every time I bust out the big ripple, a certain someone jumps on my lap and makes herself welcome. She'll even sit right down on top of the hook - and my hands holding the hook.

Most of my pleasure lately is coming from Christmas pajamas. This officially makes me a doofus. Seems like lately people are starting the tradition of giving new pajamas as gifts on Christmas Eve. I'm usually confused by most American Christmas traditions, since we had very German Christmases - for example, ALL our presents got opened on Christmas Eve. Then, we had stockings on Christmas morning.

It's funny to think what sorts of things I'll do with my own kids, given that Meridan is Jewish (somewhat). He's fine with any Christmas stuff I want to do, but he doesn't really enjoy the holidays that much. Maybe that'll change when he's got his own kids. After all, the holidays really are 90% for children. My mother's family was Catholic, yes, but our Christmases were VERY secular.

Meridan made some brownie/cookie bar things yesterday for his holiday party at work, and now it's got me in the baking mood. Cookies ahoy!

My mother mentioned Sunday that she had found her wedding china, and that she was going to give it to me when Meridan and I have our own place. I always knew I would end up with it eventually, but it was really nice of her to offer it to me now. It made me tear up a bit - I know how much she treasures it.

Off to find cookie recipes!

Isn't it looking bright and lovely? I'm pretty proud of how well it's coming along, and I had to brag a bit, even though most of you don't share my love of the crocheted afghan. The colors are even prettier in real life, and I've decided not to be bothered with how well they go together, but just roll with it. It looks fine, and it will continue to look fine, I know.

God, I'm so sleepy. That appointment at the dentist's was far too early for me, and I was able to nap for only about an hour or so afterwards - I was freaking out too badly to really relax. Maybe a quick catnap before Glee...
