Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone! 

I am so filled with gratitude and joy today.  Our family has so much to be thankful for and it has been such a happy celebration of Christ's birth.  I am so glad for the love of family and friends at this special time of year but I am also so very glad to have my beloved animals in my life.  Daphne and Quincy have been with us the longest and we have lots of memories of Christmas' past with them.  Sophie and Coco are our more recent additions and we are enjoying making new memories with them.  I had a wonderful walk with the dogs this afternoon and they are all resting most contentedly and enjoying an afternoon nap now.  Here are some photos of Christmas' past below. The photo above was taken this afternoon upon our return from our walk.  

Dinner is going into the oven soon.  Tonight we are having a yummy tourtiere homemade by yours truly and leftover blaukraut from last night (thank you Oma).  A tossed salad will round it out.  Our big feast was last night so tonight is a little more casual.

Merry Christmas to you and yours from all of us here at Northrock.

Christmas is almost here!

It has been quite a while since I last posted!  But with Christmas almost here I thought it was high time I post an update as to the going ons here at Northrock.  To start with I would like to introduce Bayport Coco Chanel.  She is the goofy brown barbet in the photo and we have all fallen very much in love with her.  She has been staying with us for the last few weeks and is getting along great with the gang. 

It's a very busy season for most people and our family included but I really wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
