Hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family. We have had a wonderful time. My son Richard and his wife Charlie and their two children came to stay for five days. The children really loved all their presents but Corey was more interested in playing with my microwave saucepans and some old corks from Asti Spumante. We spent a couple of hours playing together in the kitchen while Tyler was busy playing with his new Marble Run game.

Here is a photo of Corey having fun in the kitchen. He loved my old Flour Grader cookie cutters which we have had since our children were quite small.

We had just finished unloading the dishwasher and Corey decided he wanted to close the drawers.

He just loves opening and closing doors and is always trying to shut us in the fridge.

I have just finished my card for the December 2012 Recipe Card Challenge at Digital Scrapbooking Studio and would like to share it with you. It is a recipe for Lazy Mince Pies.

My daughter Susan made some of these for us and they were absolutely delicious.

Wishing you everything you wish for in 2013. Happy New Year to you all.


  1. Isn't it amazing how toddlers just love to play with pots and pans and little kitchen gadgets? Your photos are adorable. So glad your holiday was wonderful. I'm wishing you a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

  2. Hahaha, no need to buy expensive toys here, isn;t it? Kids have sometimes such marvellous ideas!
    Wishing you all a very happy new year, for all a good health, and lots of happy family moments.

    1. Dear Kyra

      When my children were small they seemed to get the most pleasure out of the boxes things came in. We had a new washing machine and the box become a rocket to the moon. The children just loved it.

      Hope you and Jan had a wonderful Christmas.

      Wishing you both a Happy New Year.

      Luv Chris
