It's the most wonderful time of the year.

It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Vancouver got its first snow on the weekend, and I was just as excited as the wee girls I was with. Looking out the window and seeing a completely new city, blanketed in white is truly like magic!
I have finished, wrapped and sent my NZ/Australia presents (of course we were at the post office as it was closing...), and have vowed to have them ready to be sent by boat in October for next year. The house has been put back in some kind of order, we're putting our decorations up and dough for sugar cookies is chilling as we speak! Oh, I really really do love this time of year. Richard is also learning to love all the many Christmas carols I have been playing. Bless him.

And look, here he is. Just a wee thing with his big sister and possibly one of the strangest/scariest/most hilarious Santa photos I have ever seen.

I hope you are all enjoying some Christmas festivities where you are!

Glad you're enjoying the festivities, the snow would certainly add quite a bit to the atmosphere.
Although I'm not so sure about the monkey. That photo IS one of the quirkier christmas scenes....it gave me a very good chuckle!

Monkeys and Santa, nothing out of the ordinary.

Surely, you are the weird one...

lovin the santa pic, the kids look a little bit scared, the chimp just looks like he's thinking 'same stuff, different day'

That photo is too bizarre. The poor little chimp!

*ahem* Not to sound TOO pedantic, but that's a chimpanzee, not a monkey. :-P

I love how Kathy looks like she's trying to get as far away from the chimp as she can while still on Santa's knee.

I seem to have blocked this disturbing episode from my childhood out of my memory.
