So here it is....


Christmas Eve....
the candles are lit, the house is filled with the smell of Christmas, 
the Paperdolls are watching The Snowman 
and I am alllllllllmost there, 
ready to sit back relax & enjoy 
....the gifts are made....
mmmm....weeeeell nearly just a couple of small finishing touches to do....

 


The fabric gift tags I made are ready to be put on the gifts....


Most of the wrapping has already been done....
only a few more gifts to do....


And the food prepping for our Christmas dinner is also in full swing....


I started today by making fresh buttermilk pancakes for the breakfast,
and I have rarely left the kitchen all day. 
The homemade Vanilla Ice Cream is chilling in the freezer & the Apple Pie is in the oven. 
The Turkey is slowly defrosting and I have started the stuffing.  
Mr Mc has taken charge of the veggies this year.  
The table is “dressed” for the occasion tomorrow.


I just looooooove being home for the holiday.
I find traveling stress at this time of year. 
So when it came to choosing a greeting for the front door sign I made last week, 
....No Place Like....was the most fitting one for us.
Having family and good friends round the table 
sharing yummy food and funny stories is the best way to spend the holidays.  
And we are very lucky to have both this year.  
I hope you are surrounded by people that make you happy this festive season.  
It's getting late here so I better be off now to finish my last bits & pieces....
and Mr Mc just talked about going to Midnight Mass....
....it would be the first time in years if we make it tonight.... 
but I just wanted to pop in and say....


 ....wherever you are in the world....
 Have a 
  Merry Christmas  
filled with love....joy....&....peace!
