I will like to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thanks to all of you for visiting my blog so that I have kept on blogging throughout the year! Thanks for nice comments and thanks for following my blog!

This is from our walk in the woods yesterday.

We are lucky to wake up to these two smiling faces every morning

Sleeping beauty

One of my goals for the new year is to set up my  internet store with some new smaller items and I started yesterday with this scarf, I think it is cute.

4th day of Christmas

We have had some lazy days, cold, but no snow. Everyone got a lot of presents, we need a bigger house for the twin's toys.

Our Norwegian Christmas food has been eaten, we still have some leftovers.

I have finished my Christmas knitting, one pair of mittens each for my little ones, big enough for next year. I also made a small version, maybe for a santa for next year. A new project is on my needles, it will take a while before they are done. They are for my oldest daughter. A friend made hers in two weeks, I will probably use two years....

Soon my old wool angels will be back in their box .....

While some are enjoying and others complaining about all the snow back home in Stavanger, I had my coffee and knitting outside in 24 degrees C (75 degrees F) nice sunny weather. Here is another pair of miniature mittens, these are a little bit bigger than the last ones.

Morning by the pool, as you can see, we have got a lot of bananas this year. The pool will probably be heated tonight if our guest finally arrives, he has been stuck in Paris because of the snow....

More Christmas knitting, wristwarmers are easy and quick gifts, here a elegant pair with pearls and another pair for a nice young man

This little angel came home with me yesterday

The Christmas tree is decorated, only thing left now is to wrap alot of presents,
 and thanks for visiting my blog!

Only a few days left and I have not made my santa this year, too busy with my real little santas, guess who got all the attention at the mall yesterday....

The santa of the year is still in his bag ready to be made, maybe next year,

Here is one made years ago, he is waiting for your wishlist

With oldest daughter home from university we are having one of her favorite dinners...
