Merry Christmas

All is calm here at the moment.

We walked on the beach today,
the sun shone, the wind blew, we found a Christmas tree, and wrote in the sand.

back at home Rudolph is watching over us, 

and I have a packing helper. I think he actually wants to be a parcel.......

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

May it be filled with all the things that bring you happiness.
