Ala Gypsy: .....a bit of Christmas at my house...

...sharing a bit of Christmas around my house.......

We have a very large family and we try to be together as much as we can during Christmas time.....this year was totally different and strange for most of us...we had a very small gathering ...... but with a 2 year old that entertained us every single moment...this will always be one of my most memorable Christmases...

Here is a few pics of some of the Christmas stockings my Mom and I made for last Christmas.....

Dear Chamara - thanks for visiting me and I also want to thank you for your Christmas-and New-Year-wishes!! You decorated your house with very pretty things! And I really "have to" tell you, that my husband, my daughter and I spent two wonderful holiday-weeks in South-Africa 7 years ago. It was one of the best experiences in my life (and there have been a lot of good journeys / experiences! :o)) In which part of the country do you live?
Warm regards from winter-cold Austria - and I wish you a blessed 2010! Hugs, Traude
