Mostly Wordless Christmas




This was so much fun! I rescued our smashed Ikea Gingerbread house by gluing it together with white chocolate. When it had set, I made some royal icing, set out some bowls of sweets and let Miss Fab and Scrag decorate the little house with no assistance from me. They had a BLAST! Then we visited our Neighbours' gingerbread house, and they visited ours. The kids also delivered gingerbread men we had made to our neighbours, wishing them Merry Christmas.


Mum and dad, my brother and his family all came to share in Our Christmas Eve traditions. The Christmas Book I wrote was a huge hit with the kids and their sweet Spanish cousins, as was Santa Claus delivering new Christmas PJs. The Mulled Wine was a huge hit with the grownups. Oh it was GOOD.



In all the craziness we forgot to hang the stockings...


But Dash remembered. He got out of bed and hung everyone's stockings on the mantelpiece...


...and put out cookies and milk for Santa...


He went to bed praying that this would be "his best Christmas ever"...


...and it was.

{Hardly any photos exist of Christmas Day. I was too busy enjoying the moments. Many beautiful moments.}




That's all I have.
I hope your Christmas was as beautiful as ours was.
