so as i just perused the previous blog posts, i realized that i have done the last 6 out of 7 of them. so instead of mcblog it should be called christina'sblog. oh well. haven't posted in a while due to many holiday events. Santa came with a christmas miracle on day 6 of laryngitis and gave me my voice back. it still sounds hoarse over a week later, but i am just thankful to have something. brainstorming sessions at work were difficult and also sarcasm doesn't translate well when written. also anxious to get back out skiing in order to train for the City of Lake 35K.
christmas was good. kind of a whirlwind. had christmas eve with my mom's family. steve and i hosted brunch the next day for them and family friends and then christmas night with my dad's family. picture above is from brunch with my 87 year old grandma. such a cutie she is (pic taken on my cousin's iphone, not bad). this post is kind of boring. below is a photo of the new cabled hat that i knit for my mom. i just kind of made up the pattern by combining about 3 other patterns. it worked out pretty well, although taking a picture of it posed some difficulty, it's hard to see the cables, whatever.
