We just got home from a wonderful vacation in Florida, with my sister, Nancy, and brother in law, Ed. Dan and I met Nancy, and Lily Morales at a wonderful resort in Orlando. Poor Dan had to work while Lily, Nancy, and I went to see Epcot. It was all decked out in Christmas around the world, but I think my favorite was the greenhouse with lots of things growing in unique ways. They had a huge pumpkin growing on an overhead trellis, with a net under the pumpkin.

Lily, Nancy, Dan, and I sat around enjoying some oragami that Nancy did, and playing with some interesting knots. Do you know how to do a "sliding square knot"? It is used in climbing I think. Lily taught me the snake knot, and a button knot in a different way than I had ever done before.

Believe it or not, we did not do any tatting AT ALL... whew! Glad I got that out. Confession is good for the soul.

Our grandson, Ben, sang a solo in their church Christmas program and we are so proud of him. He did a great job, and sings like an angel. Granddaughter, Katie, and daughter, Carol, were both in the choir. It's not a big group, but they sound incredibly good.

I'll post some more tomorrow. It's late and that was a LONG drive. Hugs to all, Ruth
