Happy New Year!

Thank you for all your nice christmas greetings :) We've had a great christmas with lots of good food, great presents and even snow on christmas eve. But the combination of sugar and bad weather is not great... We've had storm, electric current break and rain - lots of rain, so we have not been out much the last week so the kids climbs the walls... Today the snow has been pouring down so hopefully the weather will be on our side tomorrow. I need to be outdoors for some hours...
But I have been knitting and finishing some ufo this last week :)
