New Year's Eve and the festivities are all but over. I have lost count of the number of people we have entertained in the vicarage over the past few weeks but it is certainly over 100. Yesterday the one remaining Christmas present was opened as you can see in the photo. It was Archie's present (A rope monkey) which had been left on the Christmas tree. He also had a rope Santa but he managed to steal that before we had a chance to wrap it. So far the monkey has had one foot and it's tail removed, but there is still so much fun left in it for Archie. We had a great family Christmas and hope you had a good time too. Wishing you every blessing for 2009.
