Extended HolidayAve

Grandpa Cates was delayed in his trip to visit, so the holiday festivities were extended a few more days. Much to everyone's delight he gifted us with a Wii. To Dave's delight, Grandma and Pap gave us Guitar Hero. Eamon loves playing Mario Kart. Dave LOVES Guitar Hero. Aine and Heather play a bit of bowling. Benton just likes using the steering wheel or controller without actually playing.

Holiday Lights and Trains

The whole Williams extended clan headed out to the railroad park for some holiday lights, carousel rides, train rides, hot cocoa and a little ambience. Unfortunately the line for the big train was too long for us to wait and ride. However we had a lot of fun!

Holiday Dance Recital

Aine takes dance one a week at a local dance studio. The class is a combination class for an hour and a half. It covers ballet, tap and gymnastics. She LOVES it. She attends with her best buddy and cousin, Rachel. Her other female cousins also have class there, so she is able to see everyone. She is learning a lot and participated in the holiday production. She was great. She smiled the whole time and really enjoyed herself!

Socktober Socks

I finished the Through The Loops Mystery Socks for 2010. They turned out really nice. I am pleased with how quickly I knit them. It helped that I did two socks at one time - albeit on two different sets of needles.

Oh course, I still only have one sock from the 2008 knitalong, but who's keeping track.
