Creating Christmas memories around the home...


Our first batch of ginger bread cookies seemed a little crumbly...we had lots of fun though. We placed them in a tin and took them to Playgroup and decorated them with little friends. yum!

  
I enjoy collecting Christmas decorations....they remind me of fun times and old adventures. The little ski's are a reminder of two wonderful white Christmas's spent in France. And the wooden decoration below is from the most magical Christmas store.


We love celebrating Christmas as a little family...but where has the month of December gone? x

Oh I know Sarah, December is just slipping through my fingers too! So much to do, so many plans all squashed in to three and a bit weeks! I love Christmas decorations too, they hold memories in a way that other objects don't. I wonder if it's because they only come out once a year...

Love the 'ho ho ho'. I like the way your decorations are meaningful - I used to simply want the pretty colour coordinated tree but now with Grace around, I'd like her to help pick out decorations as she gets older.

Gorgeous! i am full of regret that I didn't collect a little Christmas decoration from all the different places I have been, but I'll be doing it from now on. This is the boys' second Christmas and for the second year now we have made a special shopping trip to pick out a tree decoration for each of them. As they get older they'll be part of the picking, and I can't wait to give them a suitcase full of decorations when they are all grown up, with their own family and own tree :)

How cute is the little train Noel decoration...really really cute! And Mr W looks so at home with an apron on, well done to you! I agree...where has the month of December gone?! I do love this last week before Christmas, the feel is excitement and you just know that it is going to double, triple, quadruple in the next few days, esp with the little ones at our feet! X
