Happy Christmas Everyone. Weather here is pretty cold -14◦C. Some great pictures of us out in the snow Christmas Day. Unfortunately it means that its too cold to work out in the workshop :-( , hopefully in the new year. Had a great time with the family over the festive season. In the pictures from the front left to right Valantine (foster Child), Chantal (my oldest daughter), Diana (my middle daughter), Paula (my wife). At the back left to right Me, my son Derek, Patrice (my youngest daughter) and Melanie (my 2nd youngest daughter).

Nice looking family Hugo! We were foster parents also – it lasted almost until he (Tony) turned 18 and then we were finally able to adopt him. Hope it warms up for you so you can get back out in the shop. Merry Christmas to you and your family also.

Great looking family you have there! Looks like everyone is having a great time. Even colder there than it’s been here, I stopped keeping track of how cold it’s been. Stay warm and enjoy holidays and family.

From your description and pictures I am glad that I toured Ireland in the summer. It was great weather when I was there. Do you live in the country. I presume that the last picture is a picture of your home. You have a great family. My wife, Helen, and I have twelve Children, 45+ grand children,and one great grandchild. My wife decided to give everyone honey for Christmas. It is special whipped honey that comes in many flavors. We traveled an hour one way and the honey bill was $350.00. Everyone in our family had a sweet Christmas this year.

I’ve always wanted to visit Ireland, but now I know to go in the summer.

Thanks for sharing.

So you will see why I come to Portugal!
The weather there seems to be bad over Christmas, and beyond!
I’ll talk to you in April!
