The Home Straight :)

Nearly there - when we wake tomorrow morning it will be Christmas Eve.  Am thinking despite their ages the boys will be more excited than they are today.  We shall be heading out for a walk at some point to try & calm them down.  Not sure that the snow we've had for the past week has helped much.

We've been busy here with last minute preparations;

Making tags

Wrapping pressies

Making mince pies

and shortbread - little son not quite got the hang of the edible glitter

He's rather proud of his iced biscuits - spent ages decorating them

This lovely hamper arrived from Poland from a company MrVV deals with - full of very scrummy chocolates and wine, all packed a gorgeous basket.

We've set the table for Christmas Day.

Stockings have been found and hung up.

It leaves me one thing to do - to wish everyone and their families a very Merry Christmas.  Thankyou for reading, following and commenting on my blog, it means a lot to me.

If theres a pause between Christmas & New Year I'll be posting but if not - see you in 2010 :)
