This week's smiles...week 49

Here we are at the last Friday before Christmas and I'm sure you are all like me in that you have had lots of smiles lately.  The two nativities that our Granddaughters Phoebe and Lulu were in went off without a hitch and the two girls did their parts very well....proud Grandparents here  :-)

Several of you took time out of your busy lives to join in the fun this last week and for that I thank you very much.  Today I am featuring my 'much older' sister Jo's blog ....she has been knitting for Sam and Lexi and I just know the Peppa pig she showed us last week will be much loved by Lexi and there will be big smiles all around because of it so thank you Jo for all your efforts.  I would also like to give a quick head's up to Lyn's pic of the dog that I felt was auditioning for the part of Mary in the nativity!....if only the towel was Blue eh?  :-)

I have a few quick pics to share with you today that caused us lots of smiles this week....

Here's our little Angel Lulu in her playschool nativity looking a little nervous.  What a gorgeous angel she made.

Lulu is only 3 but writing her Christmas cards has taught her to write her name....clever girl Lulu Nanny is so proud of you.....of course her name really is Louise :-)

This pic made me smile too....I was in the kitchen clearing away the lunch things and I could hear the twins talking [ plotting?... me thinks ] .  When I peeped round the door to see what they were up to [you have to keep an eye on these two little monkeys as you can imagine!] I found them sat together on Nanny's chair reading books to each other  :-)  Precious moments eh?

Thanks for dropping by this week.  Please share your happy moments by linking them below.

Here's hoping you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy and exciting New Year.

  1. Aw..look at the little angel...bless her! And I agree, however much the twinnies are being good, you can't but help imagine them plotting..they are so 'together'!! Lovely smiles.

  2. Great Friday smiles. The grandchildren are all so sweet.


  3. 3 and writing her name, she is a star. Its years since i saw a nativity they always make you feel so emotional dont they.
    All the best for Christmas Annie

  10. what a fabulous Angel! The best I have seen this Christmas.
    Those twinnies are so cute.

  11. Lovely photos, Annie, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Lulu makes the perfect angel and so nice to catch the twinnies in a quiet moment - adorable :) Happy Christmas to you all. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  12. OMGosh. Not only did I miss WOYWW, I missed Friday Smiles. I'm SO glad my internet is back.

    You got some wonderful photos this week. I also liked the "new you" photo below, too. Of course, we'll both admit those little angels (and devils at times) are the real stars. Louise is adorable. She is certainly one precious angel.

    I'll see you sometime after Christmas, I guess. I had planned to let you know about my internet being down, but the phone company workers cut me off too soon, so I was unable to. Regardless, I hope you have a wonderful, joy filled Christmas.

  13. A lovely photo of the twinnies Annie, and a cute little angel too.
    Sorry I didn't make it this week. (Must do better next year). Have a wonderful family Christmas. Love Kate x

  14. An adorable little Angel. And 2 adorable little twins, fun to see they entertain each other. Thanks for sharing.

  15. What a beautiful angel.
    Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Carol xx
