A Very Fine Christmas Pudding

A Wonderful Christmas dinner was had by all. We always have a Christmas pudding, all in flames - to which we sing Happy Birthday to Barb - Jim's brothers wife who had the poor misfortune to be born on Christmas day.

Everybody had a good Christmas. Santa brought Jim a scanner for Christmas - the nifty thing about the new scanner (we did not have any scanner before) is that it will scan slides and 35mm film. Jim has boxes and boxes of slides from years ago, that never get seen because they are slides - it is so great to scan the slides into the computer and then they can be put on CD or DVD -- what a great idea. I received a lovely pair of emerald earrings from Santa. Andrew got an electric razor (he hasn't shave since Thanksgiving) and he also got an Ipod Nano. Eric got Season 5 of 24 and a Canucks Vintage Jersey.

Boxing Day we went for a nice walk along the seawall. There was quite a few Christmas trees on display - most of them seem to have weathered the wet and windy conditions quite well.

There was also a large wood nativity scene.

It was a nice day for a walk--- No Rain!!

Now I am looking forward the the tree coming down so I can get back to quilting. I am really enjoying the scanner though, I am scanning my Dear Jane blocks and putting them on the Dear Jane block map. (Santa was so smart to get this Scanner!)


  1. It must be wonderful to have some blocks finished for your Dear Jane. I only have 3 done. Perhaps this year....

  2. Santa was very smart Pam. How long did you - woops... "Santa" spend finding something that does all that stuff?
