Christmas Day!

....... and here it is ..... decorated and with candles alight on Christmas Day!

We had a fantastic Christmas. Not because we had a wonderful tree and lots of presents, or because we had plenty of special things to eat. It was fantastic because we are truly blessed to have each other. I have a wonderful family, for which I am truly thankful. :)

Our Tree!

Lucy and Luke went out at the weekend to find our Christmas tree. This is it folks! This is the one they decided on. As you can imagine, I was a little unnerved when they arrived home with it, however we did manage somehow, and it is now standing in our living room. :)

Is it Christmas yet?

Well I have had my hands full just lately. Both my girls have had the flu with soaring temperatures. I have been been running around with a thermometer in hand, mopping brows and holding hands and giving cuddles ... my favourite bit!

I have made the most of Luke's presence this weekend, I have started to unpack some of our Christmas decorations. These are a real kishmish. Old and new, things we have collected year by year. Some handmade with our fair hands. Nothing matching. These are a particular favourite of mine, a part of one of my many collections, Father Christmas babushkas. They are very old and the paint is chipped in places. I love their unusual shape, and the raised texture to the paint on the largest Father Christmas.

What is your most cherished Christmas decoration?
