Christmas

We are back home after trekking around the countryside after the hottest Christmas ever. Thanks goodness Chris' parents and sister both had pools so that's were we spent a lot of Christmas day. The girls had a great Christmas - far to busy with their presents to look at the camera.
Afternoons at my parents were spent sitting around and in the blow up pool.
Some of the great handmade presents I bought from Etsy
Stoneware Ram from Seaurchin
Hairclips from Cutecumber
Baby Singlet from Jiah
Earrings from ESDesigns
Pendant from OrangePeelEnamel (ok it was for me - not technically a present, but I really wanted it)

We have all spent the last 2 days with a vomiting bug - it seems to have gone now, but that has put a stop to all our New Years Plans ( not that they were doing lots, but we were leaving the house for a change). I hope you have a wonderful New Year where ever you are and a fantastic 2008.

Hey, I had that bug too. Some how I doubt they're the same bug seeing as to how I'm in the US but it sucked, regardless. Glad you're feeling better!

Happy 2008!

it's always surreal to see the pool at Christmas - when here we have snow.

and i see we're not the only ones who love thomas! :)

Happy New Year to you and your three lovely girls! (I loved that beautiful ultrasound photo). Good on you for supporting craftspeople with your gift buying. I especially love the enamel pendant. Hope you recover from the bug soon.
Best wishes

Thanks for the etsy links. That's a lovely photo of the small two, with the train set and wearing the new hairclips. Happy New Year!

oh so funny, i cannot even imagine it being warm enough for swimming on christmas day! :) where we went to visit there was snow everywhere (although where we live it isn't nearly that cold!).
