Merry Christmas Everyone!

It is Christmas Eve, the house is tidy, the ham is baked, the gifts are under the tree so all that is left is for me to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas, hope your day is filled with love.
Merry Christmas

I got a koala hug too! I have no idea what is about me and koalas but they really don't like me much! LOL 


  1. The tree looks beautiful Annette.

    What fun photos with all of you getting a Koala hug - it will be interesting to see how you scrap/mini-book those.

    Have a wonderful time with the family.

    Hugs & best wishes

  2. Happy Christmas! Bet it's lovely having them all safely gathered in, you and your lovelies....

  3. Happy Christmas Annette.
    Have a fab time - lovely pics! x Jo

  4. Merry Christmas Annette!!
    Gorgeous tree.
    Fun pictures, but you can have my Koala hug........LOL

  5. Happy Christmas! Your tree looks lovely and no doubt that will be the only frosting you'll see over there!
    Spectacular news that a giant parcel has just arrived in tome from Christmas. Woo ohoooo!!!! A box of fabulous quilts from you which have taken TWO months to get here but get here they DID!! I thought you were sending them back via visitors and I am amazed you went to such expense as well as time and effort making them. You really are a star, a super star stitcher and I cannot thank you enough.
    Couldn't find your email address to write privately but I will be singing your praises very soon on the blog
    Love and Joy

    BTW love the koala pics too.

  6. It's so funny that all your British friends are wishing you a HAPPY Christmas, while we American gals are wishing you a MERRY Christmas. I keep saying you who live on that Island across our sea don't know how to speak English (grin).

    Your mother looks decidedly skeptical of that koala, far more so than you.

    I'm so glad you have your entire family with you this year. I'm sure Chris wishes some of his would show up, but at least yours is with you, safe and obviously having a good time.

    Not sure if you made, purchased, or improvised a tree skirt, but I applaud you. Your tree looks spectacular, but those presents are the icing on the cake (or tree as it were).

    Have the most merriest of Christmases around, dear friend.

  7. Happy Christmas from a VERY HOT Cape Town, South Africa. Love your tree and those photos of the family with the koalas. Your one has VERY long arms!

  8. Oh lovely piccies hun -hope you're having a fabulous Christmas!

  9. I didn't know Koalas were huggable. Those claws look so dangerous. Nice pictures to have iln the album though.

    What a lovely tree, hope you had a super duper Christmas down under.

    Hugs, Neet
    ps Jo told me about the quilts - well done you.

  10. I hope I'm not too late and you are gone before you read this.

    I want to wish you a very happy (and safe) New Year. And I would be remiss if I didn't wish you a very happy BIRTHDAY on the 4th.

    I suspect you haven't received my card, but maybe it will be there when you return after your birthday trip. Of course, I'm envious, but I know you'll take lots and lots of photos and share them on your blog (HINT).

    Again, happy birthday and the best wishes for the new year.


Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
