Well firstly - I have to share something Youngest and I made as a welcoming treat.
A Gingerbread Tree !
Just before everyone landed, I nipped out into the garden and cut a small pile of ever-green material to use for my festive wreath making and very quickly - it was 'inhabited' by something small and furry! She popped in and out, hiding then springing up like a cat-in-a-box. What great fun - in fact she got so over excited that she ran up and down and climbed in and out of everyone's boxes and bags that she very suddenly fell asleep - she is still a baby :)
There was so much snipping and cutting, placing and arranging of festive wreaths and table decorations.
Oh - I'll stop waffling and show you!
Our little back yard was filled with all our work.
Yes that feather adorned wreath is resting on a row of wellie-boots - made my Eldest's girlfriend.
Now, as Himself takes Eldest and Girlfriend home, Youngest is in 'recovery position' on the settee whilst watching 'The Hobbit' and I am waffling on about today feeling most satisfied :)
Thank you every one xxxxxx
