A Hooking for Christmas and a trip to Disneyland

Sometimes life takes away our normal schedule and sadly knitting classes and hooker groups get put on hold. I was caught in a constant to do list of things doing what was pretty routine and non eventful to anybody but me.Thanksgiving came and went it was nice and relaxing at Megan's. I have been going back and forth to visit my daughter and then she has been visiting our home. For some reason it is hard to rug hook with a toddler around. Maybe it's me but when little kids are around you have to watch them like a hawk or a Nana.

                                             I am still redoing his nose I want it more pointed

We took a trip to Disneyland for my daughter's birthday last week and then she stayed for a couple of  days
 Finally last night I was able to continue a rug hooking for Christmas.I loved this pattern. I saw it in Primitive Quilt magazine and I am having such a fun time hooking away.
It has been cold lately in Crest so I have been busy  keeping a fire going all day. It's perfect hooking weather.After being at Disneyland I am finally getting in the mood for Christmas. Now that Megan and little Jack are back home in Sun city I can start decorating and get with the program.Hooking a Christmas theme does get you in a holiday mood pretty quick. So here are some quick pictures of Disneyland and what I am hooking.Enjoy!

Little Jack hugging his friends Pooh and Tiger is priceless. It just melt my heart... My grandson james love Winnie the pooh and has been watching the video over and over and he laughs.

I'm glad that you had a nice vacation at Disneyland. I've never been there.

Your primitive snowman looks grand. I'm cleaning bedrooms and beddings for my Holiday visitors and haven't gotten in the Christmas mood but it always come at the right time.

Take care and all the best to you and your family.

Jack sure had a great time I'm sure. We took our son there when we lived in California and it was absolutely a spotless place to go and loads of fun.

Loving your Snowman from Primitive Quilts!!!! I want to hook it too one day.
