'Tis the season. . .

Well it's almost upon us and I think we are all ready. . .
Today we spent the afternoon baking, flapjacks, mince pastry 2yr old style, mini mince pies. . . and I was asked to make a christmas house. Tomorow if i'm feeling up to it i'll bake a batch of gingerbread and we can build a simple house.
We have wrapped until I can't cut straight anymore. I have been trying to pass presents out as we go but I still can't get in the spare room comfortably. Next year it will be the youngest bedroom so we have to be way more organised. And perhaps buy smaller and fewer gifts for people.
Tomorrow hubby is baking a yule log for the family reunion get together. It will be the first time in 7 years all my family are in one place and the family has grown somewhat since then. My eldest brother has had two boys, my younger brother a boy and a girl, I have been married and have had 2 children. It's only my sister who hasn't added any more to this madness. In total we will be 20 in my parents house for Xmas lunch and present opening. It's going to be choas. . . enjoyable but choas!

I wish you all the very best for Xmas and the New Year.

Santa Days. . .

I was hoping that by now I would be able to say I had Christmas all wrapped up as it were but with delayed deliveries and things going out of stock left right and centre it's not been that easy.
We have had to make a few substitutions but we are getting there, two more to buy and lots of deliveries anticipated and it'll all be over for another 12 months.
We have been lucky (?) enough to see the man in red twice in two days with another two expected sitings this week. Luckily at 2yrs and 2mths neither of them noticed he looked completely different and had lost his glasses. In a few years we may not be so lucky.
As we are waiting for the pics to be sent through and as I just spent 15 mins trying to load old pics from last year this will be a bland post with no pics but I shall put some in my next post.
I shall try not to leave it so long this time.
