Merry Christmas to all!


It's been a busy week catching up with some last minute Christmas shopping. I'm all done now. YES! 

I put the finishing touches on Mikayla's Christmas ornament and just have to attach the ribbon now.  I'll try to get pics of the end result to show you.


Number 3 son, Reece, and his girlfriend, Sarina, are currently on holiday in Manila, Philippines after spending a week at the beautiful island of Boracay, also in the Philippines. They are taking the opportunity to visit with some of Sarina's relatives whilst there too. It's great because Reece is able to keep in regular touch by email...don't ya just LOVE the internet?! They seem to be enjoying themselves and, after Manila, they will spend some time in Bangkok and Singapore before heading home for January 7th. Unfortunately, it will be the first time he won't be with us for Christmas which is sad but okay. We at least have the internet so will no doubt be in touch on Christmas Day...maybe even Skype if I can get the darned thing set up.



I may or may not be back to post again before Christmas day but, just in case, no matter what your plans are for the Christmas holiday season, I wish you all peace, joy, happiness, good health and lots of laughter. xo


~ Love, light and peace ~

  14. How ironic is it that he meets someone named Sarina. :) Sounds like they are having a wonderful trip. I've not done any Christmas shopping this year. Tired of shopping for shopping's sake. I will take the kids out to get the things they need. They already have everything they could want and more. Their room needs a total redo so will be working on that over the break too. Lots of purging and organizing needs to be done. Your Christmas card is so beautiful. Wishing you and yours the happiest of holidays and merriest of Christmases. Tammy
