Just checking in....

Good morning all
Nothing crafty to share yet I'm afraid, busy with family stuff. Hope you all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.
I thought I'd take this opportunity to share a few of my Christmas picture and wish you and yours a very prosperous 2013. Normal crafting service should resume soonish!

 Christmas eve tradition - snacks and videos and family "secret Santa" gift.
 Christmas morning Breakfast table

 Looking rather bemused at this gift, but one they'd worked it out it was fun.
 Proudly wearing a moustache scarf.....
 Christmas dinner table
 Susan made everyone these lovely memory jars as table favours for us to capture memorable moments in the coming year.

 Construction began on Boxing day...... to create this

 When your ears get cold, steal dad's scarf, very stylish!

Then, the "I'd much rather be at home" face.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Thanks for sharing your lovely photos. Looks like everyone had fun. LOVE the idea of those memory jars though. I may "borrow" that.

Take care and have a peacefully New Year

Gorgeous Christmas photos! The decorations look superb and the table settings are so pretty. The Christmas Eve food look so good!

Love, love, love the Christmas dinner table. It looks so eklegant and beautiful.

I like to set a nice table too and we get dressed up on Christmas day as well. To me, it is such a special day for so many only seems fitting to get dressed up and make it even more special!

Love the Memory jars! Think I am going to have to steal this for next year!
