Creations for Christmas

As I haven't been able to create much myself this year, apart from creating a little human being, I have been enjoying the crafts, gifts and creations of others. Here are some examples of beautiful creations that entered our house for Christmas.

This is Saint George the knight, who protects our household from dragons, made by Anna: Oh and I couldn't resist these cute ceramic owls, made by Bottle & Jug pottery studio in Tlell, on the islands here:
And these are some wonderful gifts and presents made by talented friends Ella and Jane. The wooden house is made by John Broadhead, who lives and works in Queen Charlotte:
A beautiful crown for our prince and a Christmas sweater by his Oma:

My mother has been quite creative and productive while she's been visiting and looking after our little ones. This white felt angel is one of her many angel creations, to bring peace:
We're very blessed by all these and more creations, thank you!

Journey into the world

We had quite a different birthing experience this time around. Instead of a smooth natural home birth, we were introduced to the emergency procedures of trying to give birth on Haida Gwaii. As the baby indicated that he wasn't happy during the contractions, I had to be flown in a huge Sikorsky helicopter to Prince Rupert Hospital:
An emergency c-section brought little S. into the world:After two short days of recovery we flew back home in a seaplane:
