So pleased ...

Hi Everybody,

On Christmas Day I had all my family around at my house for dinner and a very jolly affair it was too. One by one they all arrived ..  laden with gifts to be exchanged.  It was full of loud chatter and much laughter.

Griff bought himself a Christmas sweater with a big Snowman on the front ... but my youngest daughter out did him by wearing a sweater that had lights in the Christmas tree that actually twinkled.

My youngest Grand daughter Robyn ... who is 21 ... couldn't wait to get through the door to tell me her good news.  Her boyfriend Jamie had proposed to her and  given her an engagement ring as part of her Christmas surprise.

They make a lovely couple and seem so happy together and everybody was really pleased at the news.

And today I have made this card for them in  Robyns' favorite color of deep purple.  Inside here is a little tag with their names and the date on it and I know she will love it.




More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  21. What a beautiful card you made for your grand-daughter and her new fiancé...but...I don't believe that you are old enough to have a 21 year old Grand-daughter, Christina :). Glad you had a great Christmas. I was able to take part in the family tradition of walking the dogs on the beach on Christmas day as it was gloriously sunny in Newquay. When they brought me home to Truro on Boxing Day though, it was hosing it down with freezing rain!!
