Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night

Phew. The halls are decked, the presents wrapped, the sugar cookies made and iced and consumed in obscene quantities. My coffee-filter wreath is actually hanging – rather than being trampled in a corner by Henry – and my finger-knitted garland is f-i-i-inally finished and up – rather than being sucked surreptitiously in a corner by Henry. We’ve watched Home Alone and Elf, and have The Muppet Christmas Carol scheduled for tomorrow once my sister arrives. We’ve listened to so much Bing Crosby our ears are ringing with him. So it’s ok, Christmas: feel free to come on by.

I’ll be taking a little break from the blog over the holidays, but see you in the new year. Wishing you the very best of Christmasses: good food, good company, long nights and late mornings and much love. Enjoy!

    • Thanks Sam! Have a wonderful new year too. Henry/TJ got exceedingly spoiled by his grandparents, so Santa didn’t actually have to do too much this year 🙂 He got a train set and some books, which he was very excited about! xx
