A Few of My Favourite Things....

These are a few of my favourite things.......(cue Julie Andrews singing).... For the last few years we've gone tree hunting at this particular tree farm...the grandkids have had their pic taken each year...of course when we first started out there weren't that many..... :0) ...now, you have to admit that they are just darlin'...agreed?
Just after James cut their tree down.....


Paul and his girl Sara came tree hunting this year...Sara wanted a small tree for her bedroom....Paul was going for the northern lumberjack look!


There's hubby after he cut ours down...it's a fine specimen this year..if I do say so myself.....(of course I chose it)



Lauren and her beau Ryan cut theirs down...first time for Ryan and he wasn't exactly convinced it was a good thing...but he did just fine.



Jairus and Honour in front of our tree before hubby cut it down....





Now, we move onto my stay last week, up north, where they actually had 3-4' of snow!!!! This is the baby quilt that I made for little William....it's usually folded over him, keeping him snuggly warm in his wee bassinet....






William








William and I did a lot of cuddling last week....enjoyed every moment....







...being held by his papa when he came to fetch me home...although, the snow was so bad that they closed the major highway just outside of town and we had to spend another night in Parry Sound, Ontario!









Family Shot!


So there's some pics of what has been going on in our family the last few weeks! It's been a busy time....now, the crunch is on to get all the Christmas preparations done! A lot of work still needs to be done...even the tree isn't completely decorated yet....so far we've got the lights done......
a tree with just lights on is okay..isn't it? I mean..do we really need all the decorations?
