Just a few snaps for me to remember Christmas 2015- before it's Christmas 2016. For the firs time in 12 years all my siblings were together, with all the grandchildren. We had the usual cracker-making and gingerbread decorating and letters to Santa by candlelight, as well as some new decorations (including a Terada Christmas scene I bought in Tokyo in January and painstakingly assembled) and the roll of toilet paper contributed by Basil. Basil has become such a recidivist chewer of toilet paper that we have had to remove the toilet roll holder and put it out of reach. Annoying.
