Bad Blogger...Bad Knitter...

Oh my! It's been AGES!!! Seriously...ages...since I've blogged, since I've knit or at least had any FO's...where has the time gone? And now it's 2008...when did that happen? Oh right, 4 days ago.

So, questions about The Ellen DeGeneres Show. My sister and I were there on Day 9 of the 12 Days of Giveaways. We got giftcards to Trader Joe's, Calphalon pots and knives and a super-d-duper Starbuck's Espresso maker.
My sister and I had a blast at the show and even though it's been over 12 years since I have driven in LA, I did pretty good if I must say so myself. I got us up to LA from San Diego in one piece, parked the car, and then got us back, still in one piece.

It was also fun spending the time with the CA sister and her family (can you say totally adorable niece and nephew there?!) and I was even given the opportunity to go on a Kindergarten field trip with the almost 6 year old niece and her class. We went to the San Diego Zoo and had a very nice time.

After the 4 days in California, the middle sister and I flew to New Orleans where I got to spend another week with her and her family (a different set of totally adorable niece and nephew!).

My brood joined me there and we spent Christmas with everyone before heading back to Virginia Christmas afternoon. My boys loved spending time with their cousins in Louisiana but missed the family out in San Diego.

It was so much fun - not really restful at all, but a truly great experience for which I am very thankful. (I know, that's a different holiday and all, but I enjoyed every minute that I got to spend with my sisters and their families.)

Me and my 2 sisters...it really stinks being on 3 different coasts and spending the holidays with them makes me realize how much I miss them.
