Merry Christmas!

Sorry as I have been missing yet again! Finally seeing the christmas plans comming together so I thought I'd have a quick catch up while I had a few spare moments before the big day!
Yesterday evening we made our "traditional" visit to the winter wonderland, trouble is this year it seemed to have lost its magic! Last year there was snow on the ground and temperatures of about -2 degrees c which added to the christmas feel, however it is mild here in the uk at the moment so with a temperature of about 11 degrees c it wasn't quite the same! We still ended the evening with a hot chocolate topped with cream and a chocolate flake!
Tomorrow, christmas eve, I'll prepare as much of the christmas dinner that I can ready for christmas day, the in the afternoon we are going to see a pantomime, this year is Aladdin. then its back home for Sausage rolls and Mince pies!
So all thats left is you wish you all a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and thank you for all your support and good wishes!
Hugs Alyson x


  1. Hi Alyson, so lovely to see you posting, and just in time for Chirstmas too!

    I love these family photos, especially the ones with the boys both holding Sophie's hand in each of the pics, how lovely is that!

    I think your Winter Wonderland looks beautiful, wish there was one near to us. I would agree, I bet it looked twice as magical with "real" snow under foot last year, but I think the magic is in the photos you have taken, they just look so happy, and would love to see you scrap or journal them.

    We spent some of yesterday decorating Christmas cakes, one for me, and one for the kids to do. It was great fun, and will blog soon.

    BTW, how are you getting on with your smash books? I tried to make one myself but wasn't happy with it, so crumbled and bought some, along with one each for the boys for Christmas, £9,99 with free p&P from Oyster stamps, not ordered with them before, and thought they were fab! Can't wait to get smashing!

    I hope you have a fantastic Christmas Alyson with your lovely family.
    We are now all done, just blitzing the house today, oh joy! and lots of wrapping :)
