Happy Christmas decorations

After spending precious time this week with family in Brighton..... altogether for the first time in years, my DD2, SIL and baby decided to leave early to take the long, 13 hour, drive home to Germany. Thankfully they thus avoided the treacherous conditions of the unexpected heavy snow through England and France but, most importantly, they would have been trapped in the Channel Tunnel blockage overnight, if they had left as originally planned. We are all so grateful for such amazing luck.
Getting home safely was wonderful and the next day they went out to buy their Christmas Tree and decorated the stairs (with the beautiful results shown above) whilst thanking their lucky stars.
I'm looking forward now to their next visit in January but they'll travel BY AIR!!!
