New Year.. Wii ...and gifts...

Santa gave Viktor a new game for his Wii
for Christmas present...
and it certainly have been played...
during the cold days...
 (with sore arms as a the result)
Lots of
LAUGHING... :o)
Are you happy now Petra..
giving you a lot of publicity...lol...
( Sorry... Love you..;o)

At New Year my second brother and his family joined us...
So we were all siblings  with families this Year..and it was fun...
It isnt so often we can spend time together like this...
Made my Mum smile a lot....

We made dinner... three-course meal...
*Shrimp cocktail
*Three different fillet... pork, beef and chicken
with tzatsiki... and green cheese sauce
Potato casserole
* Chocolate Mousse with daim...
YUMMY!!! :o)

We all had fun melting tin at New Years Eve...
( a tradition n my home since I was a kid)
Melting in the fire... and then quickly pour it in cold water...

The figure is then watched closely
 and it is supposed to tell what the New Year have in
mind for us...
Viktor got a figure with his arms stretched up in the air...
maybe a lot of wins this year in tennis...???
I got a flower... ( I hope..:o)
Never had a chubby figure like this one..
Mine always used to get long and thin...
Anyway it is fun and the kids love it!

New Years Day.. I went home...
And when I got home..
A gift was waiting for me...
From Colleen...

Ohh,,, I got CANDY!!!!!
Lots and lots of CANDY....
Imagine all the fun that can be done with these...
And she also gave me a kit and pattern for
the lovely snowman and Rudolph....

THANK YOU COLLEN!!!

I made a little collage of what I made and sent as gifts....
not everything is on picture..
as you know..
memory loss....
does it ever happen to you...
sigh...
didn´t remember to take photos before wrapping them up..;o)

Lots of snowmen...
cross stitched, stichery  or sewed...
Scissorfobs...
Wire Angels...
Pincushion...
Crocheted  tealight holder... ( no photo)
Crocheted Christmas decorations... ( no photo)
Wool Mittens..
and a Big Blue knitted turtleneck ...

Still have some gifts to send out...
but it aint NEAR being finished yet...
So I hope I will have a fun YEAR..with lots of Creative hours...
and I have to learn a new word...
FOCUS!!!! :o)
Or at least try..:o)
