Last Christmas pages

Okay okay I know it's the start of the new year, and I promise these are the last Christmas pages. I'm putting some pages together to add to some already done as my sister-in-law is 40 at the end of this month and I'll be getting a book printed for her, mainly of her kids and family. It won't be a huge book, but I know she loved the one I did for my mother-in-law so she'll have one of her own. It really makes such a personal present doesn't it?

So anyway I have put together a double page of how we spent our Christmas Day with her family.



Credits here.

Mike is camping at the moment and yay! or I should say EUREKA !! He's found some gold. Usually when he finds gold he puts it on his hand, takes a photo with his mobile phone camera and sends it to me to see. I get excited because it looks huge and then when I see it up close when he gets home it's only a mere speck. But this time it's the biggest bit he's found. Still not big by anyone's standard but it's double the size of his biggest one found to date, so he's over the moon happy.

So peace is reigning supreme here at the moment. Lucky is in his bed, Molly is laying next to him, I think she's taking on a bit of a mothering role, it's like complete dog psychology watching the two of them, it entertains me no end. Bo is sleeping on a rug on the spare bed with the door jammed so that only she can get in and out, but Lucky can't fit. I expect she still sleeps with one eye open and one eye closed, but I think things are getting better. I probably am just saying it, you know, the more I say it the more I believe it. But she keeps coming back, coming in for food, having snuggles with me as long as Lucky isn't around.

This is my only anxious part about the whole Lucky adopting our family, oh did I say that? I mean us adopting Lucky, te he! I don't care if they don't get on, if they maintain a distance of each other, but I don't want Bo too scared to be able to sit in the same room as Lucky. She doesn't care two hoots about Molly. I want her to be like that with Lucky as well. Am I expecting too much?

Well I'm off to bed. Nighty night!

Congrats to Mike for his gold find!
Pet psychology is pretty fascinating. Atleast their not up to too many antics, so far.

(((HUGS))) to all in your house and Happy New Year!

Beautiful pages!

Congratulations to Mike.

I'm sure it will all work out in the end with the animals.
