Christmas Day

Christmas has been busy but staying. C hristmas day began with breakfast and present opening followed by church then lunch which was roast turkey with lots of vegetables, stuffing, cranberry and bread sauce with Christmas pudding and clotted cream for desert. Then a few napped while others entertained the twins...or maybe the twins entertained us! After supper and little people were in bed the adults played some scrabble then Trivial Pursuit...I was glad to be on the winning team of a very close game. Bed came pretty late and morning came too soon with little people coming into Grandma and Grandpa's room for stories and early morning snacks.

Isaiah 9:2-7

For to us a child is born,
to us a Son is given,
and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He will be called
Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God,
Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of His government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne
and over His kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.

Snow and Stuff

Life has been pretty hectic which is why I havent been around for a few weeks. Our eldest daughter and her family visited from South Africa, they have now returned and are preparing to spend Christmas over there. Things have calmed down a bit until next week when the rest of the family arrive for Christmas. I thought I would post some photo's I took while they were here and then a snowy one from this morning when we woke to 8" of snow. Snow is still a novelty for us as I lived in the South West of England since I was 16, we rarely had snow down there. Since moving here last year we have had two winters with plenty. There are also a couple of photo's of Christmas decorations in London. Liberty looks great, my eldest son has done some photo shoots for their catalogues. The boys loved our walk in the woods and picking up our Chrismas tree, they have now got theirs up in SA and have put their decorations on that they bought whilst here.
