Happy New Year!

A healthy and happy 2018 to all of you.  We hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas holidays as much as we have.  Our holiday was filled with family, food and fun and it’s hard to put it behind and get back to normal living.

Our Christmas pajamas were a big hit.  We started off Christmas morning with some pictures showing off how lovely we looked.

My beautiful girls on Christmas morning!

We roasted one turkey and deep fried another with all the fixins. Between that, the snacks, cheesecake, pumpkin pie and candies we were well fed. Everyone was thrilled with their gifts and we spent hours working on Hot Wheels tracks  and LEGO sets.

Andrew pulled Sarah’s name and her gift was this.

Zac and Sarah do not have a bathtub in their house, only a shower. This year we are installing a bathtub the week after Christmas. The shelf Andrew made has a place for a candle, a glass of wine and a place to hold your book or kindle.

Needless to say the old shower unit was removed with no problem. However the entire bathroom floor under the brick was rotted and so all the flooring and joists were removed.

Sophie and I carried all the old brick flooring out and piled it up. We may do a small patio with it.

We are in the process of putting it all back together. New tub, vanity, commode, mirror, closet, flooring and lights. More pictures to come as we make progress.

Sophie and I also took some trips to Michael’s and Hobby Lobby.  She taught herself to arm knit using a video on the internet.

We also picked up a lovely pattern from Hobby Lobby for a blanket using Eternal Bliss by Yarn Bee and size 50 circular knitting needles.  She finished it today. It is beautiful.

I can’t wait to make one myself. I looked on the Hobby Lobby website and they are out of stock in most of the colors. I signed up to receive emails when the colors I want are back in stock.

So day two of 2018 is in the books. Many more exciting and busy days ahead for Passion Flower  Farm, and we hope for you too.
