Post Christmas Fun…

Well once again I was too busy to get up a post wishing everyone a Merry Christmas so instead I’ll jump the gun and wish everyone a Happy New Year instead.

Christmas came early this year with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson coming to stay on Dec 22nd. We always have a great time when they come to visit; add in the two boys back from school, my other daughter, her partner and the boys girlfriends and you get a lively mix.

We’re a great family for playing board games but we like the ones where there is strategy involved so lots of competition to keep things lively. This year Jonathan brought along a jigsaw puzzle that was quite difficult so the various members were busy hunched over the table trying to fit in all the pieces. This is what they ended up with.

Chase likes to be held and to be part of the action but sometimes he also reaches a point where he just wants to be down on the floor and playing with his little jungle gym apparatus with the flashing lights that seem to endlessly entertain him. We all joke that he’s going to end up in the Casino entranced by the lights one day.


Chase on floor playing wearing the hat Grandma made him that somehow turned out to big despite knitting the gauge swatch.

Finally I did venture out with hubby into crowded malls yesterday to hit up Chapters (bookstore) to use up some of the gift card that John gave me for Christmas. This is what I found that appealed to me vbg.


The Joy of Sox by Linda Kopp.

Nicely laid out with a bit of humour to it. I like that it’s a binder and lies flat so when you go to use the book you don’t have to worry about the pages flipping or the spine being bent out of shape. Lots of tips in the book as well as some beautiful sock patterns.

Anyhow, lots went on at Christmas and of course I never think to take pictures until after the fact. I hope everyone else had a fantastic holiday as well.
