  2. A belated Happy New Year to you all.

    Hoping to put your card in the post this week... I've been floored by a lingering health problem and with that and Christmas/Birthday I'm not up to speed... if only I had a wind up mechanism in my back, so the kids could crank me up every now and then!!

    As always love your pictures and your sharing of family life, both good and bad!

    Love San and co xx

  3. Same to you, San! We were also pretty late this year with our cards. I hope you will recover soon. I love your wind up mechanism idea. I could use that sometimes too, especially in the morning . . .

  4. Happy New Year, Eva. And I saw all that snow you got! It's fun for the children . . I love seeing them playing in the snow forts. It is very cold again! Korrina is in Buffalo! She texted me while on the train: "I'm heading into a proper winter!"

  5. Happy New Year to you also, Dorina. Funny that Korrina is in Buffalo. I have to admit that I haven't seen very much of Buffalo during the 10 years we have lived here. What is she doing there? Is it about a six hour train ride?
