Well what a week I had all these plans to post Christmas things and decorate the house but everything has been put on the back burner my Children ended up with a tummy bug and my husband has been out of town for work for the last 6 days, he gets back today:)

On Monday we got the carpets cleaned all ready for Christmas day. (I usually get the carpets done a week before Christmas, as we all end up siting of the floor opening gifts and playing with the new toys). This week we have been trying to catch up with friends.

Here are a few photos of my house, I don't think I will be doing much more decorating this year I still have to finish the Christmas cards and Christmas shopping and baking. I don't know where the year has gone especially the last few weeks.

Our basic everyday table display we have leading up to Christmas, (I change it around a bit when I change the table cloth this is how it turned out today)

I re-decorate the table on Christmas eve for Christmas day.

The Children's Christmas tree.

Some swap goodies hanging up.

On Christmas eve we light all the candles and it looks so pretty.

This will be the last post from me until after Christmas (unless something happens that I just have to post about).

Wishing you and your family a very joyful Christmas and a stress free Christmas. May we remember the real reason for Christmas and share this special time with our family and friends.

Secret Santa Honeypot

Today my daughter and I received a package in the mail from a Secret Santa. We participated in the Secret Santa Honeypot swap, it was loads of fun and we enjoyed making things for someone else. I hope our swap partner liked what we made they should get there's any day now.

Look a parcel from the US.

Look at all the goodies:)

The card was sooooo pretty thank you so much we will be putting it up soon.

My daughter loved this decoration the best. Very pretty.

I love this one look at all the needle work she has done. There was a matching stocking but the photo did not load. I will post another photo later when I have found a place for it to hang.

Aren't these the cutest ever.

And matching mittens. I have the perfect place to hang the skates and mittens and will show photos later.

Just lovely this is going on one of our old door handles.

Everything was so well made and perfect for our house. I think I have worked out who my secret santa is once I know for sure I will put a link to her blog.
Well I am now going to have a coffee and hope my children have some quiet time, we have had a huge day with our playgroup breakup Christmas party.
