The Big Day

It was a multi-phase Christmas for us again this year - on Christmas eve we opened all the packages that came in the mail (a big thanks to Janette & Dave, Sol & Philippe, Paul & Lynn, Great-Gran & Brian, and the Bridge family for making it to the post office on time) That evening Guy and Lucy swapped goodies as quiet adults by the fireside (without the fire...) The next morning, Alice opened all of the gifts that Santa brought for her and Estelle (what a great big sister) We then made the trip to Gran and Grandad's to celebrate with Auntie Katherine, Uncle Ben, Unky G and Lindsay. The girls were of course spoiled by everyone, and Guy and Lucy took advantage of all those playmates and rocking hands to get some rest.

We hope you had a very merry Christmas, and that our Christmas cards make it to you before Valentine's day (a special apology to the Bredbury Potters for an extra late card... we've been busy!)

Opening with lightning speed
The incredible dolly clothes knitted by Great- Gran...

Another one for me?
Christmas stockings
Part Santa - Part rockaholic

Meeting Lindsay for the first time


Does he look tired?
