Nearly New Year

Hi everyone ,hope you all had a great Christmas. We ended up having our dinner late due to waiting around for other people , so I got a bit fed up , but otherwise it was good.
 The kids received some lovely gifts (so did I) and had a lovely time.
Both kids had new scooters so we went out Boxing Day afternoon for them to have fun . Just in time as later we got a heap of snow ,which is still here and looks like staying for a while as it is very frozen now .
 Both kids have had great fun sledging , they have been wanting snow for a long time .

 A couple of crafty finishes before the year ends .
 I did manage to complete the two scarves , which were given as gifts. Have not heard from the recipient yet , but hopefully they are liked.

 My latest stitchy finish . I have started another one in the series , and am hoping to get it completed before the end of the year , but no guarantees .
  See how deep the snow is ! Luckily I had gotten myself some wellies and the kids new snow boots just a couple of weeks ago . Boy am I pleased about that .
  Sledging fun . This is the only view you will get of my kids until they are much older. I am OTT about internet security things when it comes to my babies.
  Pretty views.
 Ice crystals on the snow.

 So , stay safe if you are out and about in these conditions , our roads are terrible, I am fairly sure that not one little bit of grit/salt has been put down since we had the snow . Hubby is taking me shopping tonight , I don't drive much now with only having the one car , so am not as confident as I used to be .

  I will be back soon with a re-cap of the year and hopes for the next one .

 Take care ,

It sounds like a lovely Christmas! That snow looks amazing. I don't know if I have every seen crystals like that. So glad that the kids are having fun. As for the scarves and stitching...fabulous!
Happy New Year!
