We didn’t take many photos this Christmas.  It’s been really dark and miserable.  Lots of wind and rain, and some poor folks have been flooded and/or lost power this Christmas.  Thankfully, we have been OK.

Here’s a couple from Christmas Day:

Lucy with her presents

We had a lovely Christmas Day with BIL John.  He had an ipad from his 2 sons who live abroad, so we were able to speak with them and see thier families via facetime.  Amazing!  Here he is with Maurice posing with the iPad!

A chicken for Tash:  This is my friend who I gave the 25 presents to, and this was her Christmas Day gift.  I had to make a practice one (on the left) so I’ve kept that one!  The pattern is from Cotton Ginnys, who have a lovely range of ‘critters’ to sew!
