Christmas morning snaps...

Hello my lovelies! So, Christmas day has come and gone, and we have a brand new year to look forward to! Did you have a good Christmas? For some reason, perhaps the fact that we were ill in the run up to the big day, I felt completely unorganised and out of my depth this year. Hubby had to work on Christmas day, so it was a very quiet one for us. The highlight for me is always our Christmas Carol service at church on Christmas Eve...I always connect with the reason for the season, and it never passes me by without a tear or two of utter gratitude for the Gift we've been given! So, regardless of the fact that the 25th was a low key day, I still managed to enjoy being with the children, and having a quieter day was a blessing! On Boxing day my two sisters and their families came to visit, and we managed to have a 'proper' Christmas dinner! Such fun! We laughed, chatted and laughed some more, and it was a precious time spent together. We had so much fun, I forgot to take pictures! But, here are a few snaps from Christmas morning. Enjoy what's left of 2012!

Oh look...Santa's come to visit!
Big smiles all around!
Wow...look what Daddy...ahem, I mean our little man, got from Father Christmas!
Little miss was pleased as punch with her loot...Can you spot the sewing machine? She is so excited to learn to sew on her own spotty wonder!
Well, we were all thoroughly blessed this year! Hope you were too! Merry Christmas...again!
Blessings, Tania ♥

  6. Hello sweet and beautiful Tania! I am so happy it was a good and quite Christmas! I am sorry hubby had to work and that you had been sick, but it sounds like is was such a lovely day, and Christmas Eve too! It is wonderful to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus. I love to think of all the people all over the world doing that. I am glad you and your family had a fun Boxing Day with a proper Christmas dinner! Your children are beautiful and so sweet! What precious gifts from God they are!!! I love all their gifts, especially your sweet girl's sewing machine! So sweet! She is going to be just like you and sew and create beautifully! How wonderful you are teaching her to sew, sweet friend. That will be a blessing to her throughout her entire life and I just love the thought of the fun memories the two of you will make sewing and stitching together. Your children are very blessed to have you for their mum! We were blessed too! Have a beautiful and Happy New Year filled with God's love, peace and blessings! Love you much dear friend, Paula xoxo
