Gwen and I had a great time (even though we were missing Suzie) and we felt that we showed great restraint. However, when I added it all up, it wasn't as restrained as I thought. But that's ok. A lot of what we got this year was patterns, and I also spent some on yarn for gifts. (The sun and time haven't cooperated for pictures yet, but I'll get to it shortly.) When faced with a hard decision, I remembered how little knitting I've gotten done this year, and erred on the side of caution. I know things will get better as Sadie gets older and more mature, but it's still pretty slow.
