Father Christmas and London

Well, here I am again.  The “London” part of my post is another one of my shameless Grammy posts, LOL.  I have been tending my DGD, now aged 15 months, once a week.  These pictures are from a couple weeks ago. You can tell because my kitchen is bright with sunshine from the skylight. And sunshine is far too infrequent here this month...

Here is London with “Melmo” that Grammy bought her.  Her new best friend.  “Melmo” is what DGS Hunter calls him, so Melmo it is...

London even likes her Melmo socks.  I couldn’t resist this picture of her hair. I’m a sucker for cute baby’s heads with soft curls...

When London visits, Boomer usually finds a quiet place AWAY from her. But on this day he ventured out for awhile.  She is really good with him, and vice versa.  It’s unusual.

I’ve almost finished up about five crazy-quilted Christmas ornaments.  I hope to have them ready for my next post, although one will have to wait until after Christmas, because it’s for a friend who may read the blog and recognize it’s for her....

So, in the meantime, enjoy some vintage Christmas postcard images.  I have tons of these, and might as well share.  I have a special fondness for old men with beards Father Christmas, so expect to see a lot of those.  

I debated about whether to include the one below.  I really think he looks like a demented serial killer... see what I mean?  If that little girl woke up and saw him there... What do you think he’s thinking??  Oh, never mind. I want to keep this blog’s G rating, LOL!!

I’ll be back with stitchy stuff soon.... you know how the Holidays get...

  1. I love London's curls too AND her socks!! You have reason to be a proud Granny! Thanks for the Santa images. As for the last one I think he has too many laughter lines at the corner of his eyes but you could make a 'psycho' report on the doll tugging on her hair! LOL

    Merry Christmas!!

  2. Cute GD. At least she has hair to take pics of. My gds were all bald until about the age of 2 or so.

    And that last Christmas image does look creepy especially that naked doll grabbing her hair.

  3. Merry Christmas Cathy, Your GD London is soooooooooooooooo very sweet and I can see she adores her Melmo and her Bright Melmo socks. Christmas is made so joyful when we share them with the wee ones. Hugs Judy

  4. She is absolutely adoreable....Hug her lots before she grows up so fast.... Hugs Ger

  5. I can't wait until I have a 'London' of my own!! My boys are getting married next spring, so hopefully it won't be long. Nice images of Santa too (although I think you're right about that last one...kinda creepy).

  6. This is my very favorite-est age for little babies..and London is no exception! Perfect! Such a cutiepatootie! You have every right to be a proud Grammy!

  7. *sigh

    That London is something else. You lucky lucky lady...what does she call you?

  8. It's so nice that you can spend regular time with London, they grow up so fast. She's so cute and I just love her stripey socks! Have a wonderful Christmas.
