Yuletide Greetings

Merry Christmas to you all...

I hope this season brings you all your hearts desire and that you are enriched with blessing and life!

I really love the Carol 'O Come, O Come Emmanuel' and so I just had to share with you this version I found by The Franz Family'... 

This year has been such an adventure. I look forward to all that is instore for us in 2012. 

Happy New year!

The right side of my brain

A lot of my spare time recently has been brain-storming and getting creative with Carolyn for apalipost.

I've always loved making things - when I walk into a haberdashery I'm like a 3yr old in a sweet shop!

So here's a few of my creations. I am hoping to develop my skills and expand my repertoire, but for now here's a few samples...

The pom-poms were so much fun to make! 

This blanket is for sale in apalipost

I'd love some feedback, so leave your comments below!

Sunny Weekend

Well we're back in Greece and we hit the road running...
We helped the Carters move out of their house, and squeeeeeze into ours! We rearranged furniture, dragged in more and cleaned the place up.
Sunday came, and we escaped the furniture jungle and went to a lovey park near us.
The sun was shining, the air was crisp and the leaves were crunchy - bliss! 

Carolyn took photos of the kids for our Christmas cards this year, so the kids stopped for photos in amongst the scrambling and climbing.

We came home and cooked a roast dinner and lazed around dozing on the sofas whilst the kids watched The Sound of Music...

Photos of the finished tree up next!
