Unwrapping. And lifting.

Just in case you've been on tenterhooks... oh, you haven't?... to see what other wonders Daughter 2 has found for Advent gifts, here are the most recent ones.

Chocolate sprouts. Always a pleasure to receive.

A wee wind-up torch keyring. Grandson was very intrigued by this.

Two fudge bars. Yes, I realise that this is only one. Now, it's none.

More healthful chocolate sprouts.

And, today, an assemble-it-yourself set of little gnomes. We haven't yet done the assembly.

It's been a busy little while: Daughter 2 was home for a few days, Son and Daughter-in-Law came down from their northern fastness (well, house) to visit and of course Daughter 1, Son-in-Law 1 and the grandchildren were around too. So that was nice.

Son demonstrated his upper body strength... .

Daughter 2 took this picture so I'm not quite sure why Granddaughter was looking over the hedge into the neighbours' garden.

Son carried Grandson like this for the second half of our walk. Grandson's perfectly capable of walking, but obviously sitting on his uncle like a king on his throne is more relaxing. For him.

  4. Daughter 2 is ace at finding Advent presents.

  5. I googled chocolate sprouts, as you do.....definitely on list for next year, ta everso, daughter 2.

    I was on tenterhooks, honest!

  6. Love seeing the pictures of your grand longer babies. Even your son looks older. Maybe, it is the beard. Have a very Merry Christmas. Patty Mc
