Merry Christmas

Above is our family photo on Christmas day: from the left is Son in law Alex with son Declan, daughter Nicla with Alice (Vanessa's newborn), Rachael with Liam (Nicla & Alex's baby), daughter Vanessa, Anne (wife) and son in law Mark.

Thankyou for your comments and interesting articles during 2005. I look forward to a continuance next year!

My youngest daughter Rachael, was very creative with her Christmas presents this year, the cost was a considerable amount of time and thoughtfulness but without much material expense. An alternative to the consumer Christmas has been a popular topic and should you be interested Rachael has posted an article and some photos of her hand made presents on her "less is more blog" [[click here]]

I'm glad your Christmas was so merry and I do like the picture. You really need to figure out how to put yourself in a few more of them though.

We are less than 2 hours away from midnight and then we'll say Merry Christmas to each other with a glass of egg nog (if us old folk can stay awake that long).

Looks like a wonderful family Christmas (2005) Lindsay.

Seems like the Y genes got the best of you though :-)

Thanks for your profound comments.

Merry Christmas! I see those green-leafed trees out your window and I'm a little jealous! Looks like you're blessed with family.

Merry Christmas 2005! It`s still Christmas, here in this time zone (San Francisco). All the best!

I hope you and your family had a really nice Christmas. I had a quiet and wonderful one in my mum's newly renamed house "gingerbread house" (have a look on my blog.)
