I did it!!

Okay it has been a busy week. My mom had a double mastectomy yesterday and came home today. She wanted to come home to all the usual Thanksgiving foods so my sister and I cooked Thanksgiving dinner. This is NOT something we do. Usually my Nanny and my Dad take care of all of that.I know it is sad. A 28 year old mother of two still relies on her parents and grandparents for all of that but they are good at it. I make the pumpkin pie. But this year We did it all. Turkey, Ham, Green beans, 2 kinds of Mac and cheese, actual cranberry sauce I had to cook, plus the kind in the can. Okay my Nanny did still make the dressing, and the yams, and the fruit salad. but we did the rest including the pumpkin pie and a brownie chocolate chip gooey good dessert.
But back to the point I finished a present. Okay I kinda cheated I actually started said present 2 years ago when I was on vacation and needed something portable to do so I started crocheting a blanket. when I got home from the vacation I lost the pattern book so it never got finished. It is a super cute baby blanket in blue green and yellow. We have had several babies come along since then and I always intended to finish it for one of them but never had the pattern.
well I found it just last month after my sister had her second baby. A little boy. Since he will only be 2 1/2 months old at Christmas. He will be getting said blanket. It is done. one present down and 42 left to go. In 17 days. Tomorrow will be busy.

I hope your mom is doing well and everything is ok. Congrats on finishing your first gift-doesn't matter when you started it, just that you finished :)
