The Parkers

My sister Alexandra gave Abigail a very cute electronic photo album for Christmas: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tomy-Discovery-Forget-Photo-Album/dp/B0019RC632


A recorded voice sounds out as she turns each page. Such a great idea for kids with family far away. So, all the Parkers recorded their voices & then it was up to me to get a portrait shot of each of them for the appropriate page. So, here they are, all my family, including me (& Jake), as of Dec 25th 2008. Don't we all look alike?! I will be carrying the album to California to finish the pages with Grandma Sharon, Aunty Milly & cousin Morgan.

My Christmas Gift Arrived!


The shoes I've had my eye on since June!! I LOVE them! The metallic, the buckles, yet still feminine. Right, I'm off to strut around the house in them, a la Carrie Bradshaw, before I have to hand them to Jake for wrapping. Who said picking out your own gift isn't festive? I'm feelin' festive!
