I felt fine on the weekend and we were able to travel east to the Ottawa area to my family's annual McDonald Christmas. Everyone of my side of the family was in attendance ... all 34, from my oldest brother Stuart to my youngest great nephew..William, the recipient of the stocking.
My Santa ornaments were well received and changed hands a few times during the game finally ending up with my niece Karen. My brothers and I had our annual Christmas photo taken..I think I was standing in a hole.
This is William, who is a couple of weeks shy of being one year old in the arms of his doting aunt Andrea and you can just catch a glimpse of the stocking in there as well.
As I predicted Christopher asked me if I would finish the stocking for William's older brother Ethan, which Christopher started stitching at the same time as I stared William's...early this summer. "It's almost finished Ann....will you just do the rest???" What could I say? My family doesn't ask for much...
This what he dropped on the table in front of me.
