Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.
The stockings were placed on the sofa with care
In hope that St Nicholas soon would be there.
The excitement reached fever pitch in our house today. Rascal has been proudly announcing that "Santa is coming to MY house".
I personally am looking forward to eating these (fresh from the garden)
Looking forward to enjoying our largely handmade Christmas.
Loving that Rascal is excited about GIVING gifts as well as receiving them. Amazed that she hasn't told Mr Tartankiwi what his secret present is.
I'm going to take a bit of a break from blogging over the festive season. To recharge my batteries and spend time with my family. I will be back in the new year with new ideas and new projects to share.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
(I should probably mention that even though Christchurch was hit by yet more severe aftershocks yesterday, we were all together at the time and are doing well. Rascal doesn't seem to be suffering from a relapse back to her problems sleeping and was so distracted helping Dad in the garden that she didn't have time to worry about the "bangs".
My heart goes out to those who were not so fortunate and have upset children, silt in their houses and unreliable power tonight as well as those who lost family members in the February quake. This will be an especially difficult time for them, may they find some peace and comfort this Christmas.)
