Getting Ready

Christmas is almost here and I am getting really exited for the kids. Jake is big enough to really get a kick out of things this year and I can't wait to see the look on his face when he see's what Santa brought him.
I have not been posting because I have been a little busy just keeping up with it all...had a trip up to Orcas Island to visit family and have been knitting like mad to try and finish things up for Christmas.
I got to make candy with my Grandad and had a great time. He has been making this stuff for quite some time and I was happy to get to learn a thing or two from him. I got to make tiger butter wich is probably my favorite of his holiday candies but I also really like the fudge too.
We continued a family tradition of weighing new babies on the bakery scale and Abby came in at 9lbs 12oz or something like that...she has not been having any trouble putting on weight.
We went and saw Santa at the firehouse and as predicted Jake was way more interested in the trucks than in fact he was sorta terrified of Santa...Abby did fine though.
Short post but this is valuable knitting time and I want to get my stuff all here are a few pics...

Looks like you had baking fun like me!

Hugs and Merry Christmas if I don't talk to you before that.

Cute babies!

Curious... what is Tiger Butter? Never heard of it, but love the name and the image that it conjured up in my mind. Can you share a receipe?
