Great update - mostly family visits BUT an update on the Christmas Shop

What an incredible three days I've had!

Christmas Eve was spent at Shirley and Grahame's with Grahame's daughter, Kate (who is 6 months pregnant); her SO, Nic;  his grandson, Graham, his wife, Nikita,  and their child, Story; and Nikita's mother, Shannon.

Story is 3 years old and at that incredible age of wonder where the Christmas tree lights draw you in. It was a lovely evening but I have to admit that Story made it just SO special!

Christmas Day was spent with Mom, DD Leanne and her husband, Robert; DS Shirley and DBIL Grahame.  Spend a wonderful time unwrapping presents then ate the most incredible dinner cooked by Leanne: beef tenderloin roast, baked potatoes, two salads; roast vegetables and onions....and cheesecake for dessert.

On Boxing Day, many of my family met at my place: Mom, DD Leanne, DS Shirley and DBIL Grahame; DS Marie and DBIL, Robert; their DD Stephanie, DS David, DDIL Laura and their precious GD Elizabeth Marie.

How fortunate we are to spend this time together.

DS Marie gave me a beautiful piece of spun glass for Christmas.... but the loveliest thing she gave me was on top of the gift! A beautiful piece that I have added to the top of the Christmas Shop.

It is just so perfect!!
