Highlights of the Christmas Holiday
We had a great Christmas.
It was so busy I was unable to post through the whole time off.
Christmas Eve we invited our neighbours over for good cheer and a late meal.
We served Meatballs Bourgundy, Chili, Lasagna, Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Salad, Cheese and Crackers, fruit, cakes, and cookies, plus roast ham and roast beef cold cuts.
The younger folk took over the basement and the livingroom,
All the others were in the family room.
Knit Owl created this lovely LOLrus toy and sent it to Alex. He had done a Digg tribute in flash for Poor ole LOLrus's passing. Alex is wearing his Digg hoody and cuddling his much loved arghile LOLrus.
Tere made me this lovely Flourite pendant for Christmas. I have to tell you I am sooo close to losing 50 lbs. I am wearing clothes here from 1995.
Cam being alouffe.
Christmas morning, my parents came for brunch, and we then opened presents.

We headed to the basement to see Cam's new Xbox360
Candy had never been in the lower two floors of the villa. For Christmas we decided to let her have full run of the house. She was thrilled to find high places to hang out in the basement!

On boxing day (Dec 26th) we had a whore frost that left lovely decorative crystals on the trees.
That night we played 20th anniversary Trivial Persuit.
We joined Carl's Mom to celebrate her 95th birthday.
I gave my Grand Nephew his first baby blanket this day. These are a couple of pictures of the blanket I made, and designed.
