Pictures loaded !!!

I took some pictures for you this morning. First, the house we moved in.

We live in the left one. We have a yard in the shape of a L. Kids are so excited !!! My brother, who owns an internet store called Oogarden.com, sent us a summer table and 6 chairs for Christmas Chuy is ready for his barbecues !!!

The right one is not rented yet. At the left of the entrance door, we have the kitchen; above it, is Emma and Steb's bedroom and the bathroom to the left. And this is a view of my outside christmas decoration. I don't have a lot as we moved here on december 1 st.

Yesterday, my friend Carole came for a visit and look at what she brought with her:

10 issues of the Cross Stitcher (the UK magazines) My subscription used to arrive to her mother in law's house in England. It was a little weird to get them after almost a year. I even got the 2008 calendar She's going to England for the holidays so I asked her to buy me the latest issues of the World of Cross Stitching and the Cross Stitcher. I don't want a new subscription but one or two mags will be fun !!! (not that I don't have anything to read or stitch ... )

Chuy worked on his nativity on friday night. We got some green from the park after school and Chuy quickly added them to his nativity. It was great except after two hours when I noticed our ceiling was full of ... bugs I guess they were in the green and got attracted by the light. Anyway, Chuy took everything away and put the greens outside. He put it back this morning and no bugs on my ceiling. So here is the new nativity (greener than before) and some details:
I worked on my fuchsia last night. I just started a flower full of oranges and yellows! A stitcher dream !!!
Thanks for your lovely comments. My blog visits are really down since I was out of internet ... C'est la vie ...

Your nativity is an inspiration. I have a small collection of nativity sets and just love the idea of setting them up so naturally. I might try that next year!

Congratulations on your new house. The decorations are inviting!

Les personnages de ta crèche sont très jolis et l'installation au pied du sapin très réussie.
