Christmas cheer

I finished the last of my Christmas knitting last night (now I have to sew on handles and make the liners). I have enough of the recycled sari silk left that I think I will whip out an even smaller model for little Hannah, so all three of my friend's dear daughters can have accessories that reflect their Indian heritage.

When Rick got home at midnight Christmas Eve, he brought with him the new bike for Brian we had stashed at the neighbor's.

Christmas morning sunrise.

Happiness apparent, blurry or not!

We all got fluffy white towel and wash cloth sets beautifully embroidered by my step-mom.

The snow is slip-sliding away.

Jackson's making tracks.

And my Butter Baby is showing some improvement. Can you sing the Hallelujah chorus with me? :-)

We wish you a merry Christmas from . . .

Hallelujah!! Sounds like the perfect Christmas morning! We're STILL snowing here arrrrrghhhh! I'm trying to think positive....it IS the first VERY White Christmas I've ever had. Makes it that much more enjoyable to sit and listen to Christmas Carols and drink warm cocoa! Give everone a Christmas hug for me! And a cyber-hug for you!:) Tammy

Great news about Butter! We're still keeping her in our thoughts.

I love the picture of Brian on his new bike. Maybe someday the hubby and I will have one of those ourselves.

Encouraging, about Butter.

Interesting, the picture of the snow working its way off the roof. I've seen a lot of snow formations over time, but never one quite like that one!

What a fun group of pictures - especially like the snow curl on your roof. I've never seen anything like it. Best wishes in the New Year, Michelle.

Hi there - Looks like your Christmas was very merry. Our family (courtesy of the Danish heritage) opened presents on Christmas eve too - John is like Rick - he thinks it's cheating... We were supposed to go to Bellevue tomorrow to get together with my sisters, but, it's snowing here now and there is supposed to be 1-2 feet of snow over the Cascades which will stop the trip from Yakima for one of my other sisters - so we've canceled our reservations - no sense in putting lives at risk just for Christmas presents! We'll have Christmas in March or someother time when the weather is OK...

BTW, you looked splendid in that red dress :-) I hope that Butter continues t improve. Happy New Year! XOX T.
