It's Christmas! Almost!

The baking is done, sort of. The presents are wrapped, sort of. The tree is up and the crèche is out with the house decorated in a festive way. The Christmas stockings are ready to be filled by Santa JMB who has so much stuff she will never be able to get it all in.

Yes, I make the same ones every year!

This year my daughter and her family have come to stay with us for Christmas and we will have the delight of my six year old granddaughter sharing Christmas with us. We will be nine for Christmas dinner at my house as we celebrate with longstanding friends and family.

I love poinsettias for they remind me of Australia and
right now I have ten in my house!

So far we have no snow thank goodness. Last year's massive snowfall which kept us snowbound for five days over Christmas is still in our memories and we are not ready to deal with that again. I will be happy to have a rainy one which is the norm, but they are predicting a nice day this year.

In keeping with Miss Mogg's post I will also post a few photos I took in Second Life and the Christmas card I sent to all my SL friends. Click to enlarge!

I decorated my log cabin in SL and even have snow!

I built a little snow family on the front boardwalk.

A reindeer came to warm itself by the firepit too

Brrr! Back inside to warm myself by the fire.

Christmas greeting from the JMB in Second Life

But in real life, may I wish all the many blog friends I have made over these past three years, if you are celebrating it,
