Christmas cheer from our family to yours!

I'm up early, the house is very quiet and dark. Coffee is hot and so good. It's nice to have a bit of time to catch my breath before everyone gets up.

As if this time of the year is not hectic enough, our beautiful Emma gave birth to 12 puppies on Christmas Eve!
You read right, 12.
Why do dogs give birth at night (most of the time)? She started at 1am and kept at it till lunch time on the 24th!

Emma is very tired but doing well. We are keeping 24 hour watch on the pups to make sure they are all warm and far so good!

(you will not find 12 of them in this picture...only a few)
The cowl for Nameless is done and blocking as I write the time we open gifts this afternoon, it will be wrapped and under the tree!!
I'll have pictures next time.

My mother is with us for a few days. Being the first Christmas without my dad, our thoughts and conversations often go to him. It's good to be together.
Hugs to all of you and enjoy your day!


  1. A dozen puppies on top of the Christmas chaos! Yikes.

    I'm sure the granddaughter, the puppies and the alpacas are all bringing joy to your house. And your dad's spirit is right there with it all, I am sure.

    Peace and Joy.

  2. WOW!!!!! You had the 12 days of Christmas delivered on Christmas Eve. Great luck with the puppies.
