Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I thought I should post some Christmas pictures –  "what we have been up to lately pictures" ......
I started off this Christmas Season getting my fabulous notions holder and a few extra goodies from Carole – Quilting Adventures. 


Then I spent a day making Biscotti – 25 dozen.

We put up a tree ---- a very nice little tree..............

Decked the halls – sort of………….

Eric and Darla came for Christmas Eve dinner.

Cadence the Grand dogter – has come to spend the Christmas holiday while her mummy and daddy get to spend Christmas in Hawaii.  Can you see the look on Jenny’s face – she is wondering when we are going to send this dog back home!

Christmas dinner --- Saddle of Lamb.
We have been watching  “Upstairs, Downstairs” – and they eat a lot of Saddle of Lamb – so Jim decided we needed to search that out – so…. here we have Christmas dinner of Saddle of Lamb – Gordon Ramsay style.


First you have to trim it off the bone.

Could I have a little bit there Jim?  Huh – just a little??

Then you add a few sage leaves…………

Then the spinach and mushroom stuffing.

Roll it and wrap it and bake it in the oven..

Ready to carve and enjoy for Christmas dinner.

Could we have a little there Jim…. just a taste??

Just the tiniest little taste?  Please…………

So on that note I thought I would add this picture of me - peering over my glasses at Jim - as I take a lot of pictures of Jim - peering over his glasses at me - it's only fair I guess. Merry Christmas.... to all - and Happy New Year!

After a year like this - its best to laugh out loud!!

  7. Oh Pam, those poor poor dogs - did the SPCA get called? I don't think they had been fed for at least a week! Glad your ankle is improving and that you had a nice Christmas.
