Didn't Christmas just fly past?!!! Hope everyone enjoyed themselves - we did and the children filled the house with screams of excitement on Christmas morning - I love watching their faces, that's my favorite part of Christmas! Okay, I DO love my Christmas dinner too! My parents came over for Christmas lunch and we had a lovely meal together. On Boxing Day we visited my husband's parents and enjoyed more food and family time together.
My oldest couldn't believe her eyes when she realized her dreams had come true and she was finally holding her very own ipod touch!
I also wanted to show you a new Santa I made from Mr Jingles pattern by The Olde Country Cupboard. I didn't make legs for him but adapted him slightly and made his coat a bit longer to prop him up instead. Here's what he looks like, free standing, in the midst of some fairy lights which I am tidying away for another year. I've already got the main tree etc packed away and thoroughly cleaned the main living room and it feels GOOD to have the room back to basics ... I feel a strong need to de-clutter the house in the next few weeks. We just seem to have accumulated STUFF and I need to clear it OUT!
Still, it's kind of sad putting away all those Christmas decorations when we look forward to Christmas so much and then it's over in a flash!
But here's hoping 2011 is a great year too! I thank each one of my blogging pals for making 2010 so great! You have been so generous with your comments and encouraging remarks that I am indebted to you for taking the time to be my friends... Thank you!
