We have had very heavy snow for the past 5 days, it's
sunny today but very very cold. The weather has been great
for this kids, and I hope we might get a white Christmas.
Hope you have a wonderful time, and hope you can get across
soon to see Luke. Sheffield will have been snowed under I
bet, they tend to get a lot more than we do. Your pictures
are so diverse, you have an excellent imagination and an eye
for a "capture the moment". Merry Christmas
Chris. XXXX
