Christmas Eve

The stockings were hung by the fire with care...

Maggie helped Len pack last minute parcels downstairs

Len built a Christmas fire that was a true work of art...

The girls impatiently waited, they wanted Christmas to start!

We all watched "It's a Wonderful Life" in our cozy warm house...

After which not a creature was stirring,
not even Maggie's Christmas mouse...



Postscript: I loved Len's fire - the two "eyes" are old marrow bones the girls had as a treat. Waste not want not! And the parcels were eBay auctions closed and paid for - Len wanted the winners to get their packages ASAP. The girls helped me hang stockings and pile the presents from them and me for Len. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good nite!!

I hope the house is all aired out now and that you, the girls and Len are having a fabulous post-Christmas day!!!
