Christmas in February?

So today was February 25, two months from Christmas. I published some Christmas pictures today for my family, and thoughtI'd put some cute ones on here. I hate putting pictures on my blog, they always go wacky and the formatting gets all screwed up. Anyone have any tips?

First, my grandma with the scarf I knit for her. It was a very simple garter stitch scarf and I used the 99 cent Yarn Bee Mosiac Twist yarn from Hobby Lobby. It was so easy to knit, and don't tell my grandma, but also super cheap (I used about 2 skeins = $2), but Grandma loves it so much, and to my surprise, it matches her winter coat perfectly. I choose to do the garter stitch because I knew that would be nice and tight and keep the cold air out. It worked, because she tells me every time we talk how much she loves her scarf, how warm it is, and how many compliments she gets on it wherever she goes. I think a homemade gift, regardless of the price or time, is all about the love that goes into it. Most people don't always get that, but grandmas are always happiest to get a gift that had thought and love,
and that's what I love about grandmas.

And here's a nice one of my parents, sister, Curt, and me. I think it's silly and really captures all our silly attitudes. Especially the look on my dad's face... he's probably the goofiest of us all, which is fitting, because he used to be a clown. His name is Goober. Silly, I know, but that's my family.

Now it's officially time for me to go to bed, I have to substitute tomorrow and I don't know if we are going to get that 2-hour delay I was planning on earlier.
