A XMAS family day with mum and Slow SUNDAY Stitching

 I have had a great day with my mum, husband, daughter and grandsons. It was my family XMAS day. We drove an hour to pick up mum, half hour to my daughters, stayed a few hours, then back to mums and home again it was a full day. All at the same time as enjoying some beautiful weather.
This was the start of the present giving. Mum to her great grandsons.
Here my mum gave the boys their present. They were excited...
 Then there was the competition with Pa and daughter to see who could blow up the present first...

Once the sliders were blown up for the pool the boys had to be shown what they were and how to use them. Oh what a laugh.....

 Here is NICHOLAS  showing us how it
is done


And then we have little Xavier..

Following in big brothers footsteps

Now we have my mum and my daughter having a laugh together beside the XMAS tree

The day has come to an end. My mums oxygen is nearly out so off we go to take her home.
But on the way she makes us look at this great garden near her house...
Just look at this front yard. Look at how much work has gone into it......

I am now at home... I have had a glass of wine. Doing an easy dinner and ready to sit and stitch for SLOW STITCHING SUNDAY. What a nice way to wind down.
I have started on a HEXIE project but it is for my HEATHCOTE group. It is a project I will not be advancing on... At least for the time being.
This is where I started.

And where I am up to now....

And lastly I hope to get the centres on these cute swirling flowers from the DOD , row by row, QUILTERS GARDEN, mystery finished 

 I will be linking up withy Kathy at SLOW SUNDAY STITCHING.
