I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday and that the Christmas festivities are continuing. I'm just popping in because we're not only heading towards the end of the month but also the end of the year and it's time again to catch up on photos which haven't yet made it on to the blog, not that there's very many this month. I think I was far too busy with the Christmas preparations to think about my camera very much.
Lots of time was taken up with swap parcels this month. I've taken part in four different swaps this year and I wanted to make sure that parcels and cards were posted off in good time. These are the parcels which were sent off to Lisa from Jumble and Jelly. We're doing a Twelve Days of Christmas swap between ourselves just the same as we did last year.
Not only was I busy sending off gifts, I was receiving them too. These are the gifts I received from Lisa, I've now opened two of them but I'll tell you more once I've opened them all. I love the paper they're wrapped up in.
The Christmas tree was put up mid month. I don't like to get all the decorations up too early but I do like to have everything done before the last minute. It's always fun reacquainting ourselves with things we haven't seen for almost a year.
I received this bauble in the Twelve Days of Christmas swap last year. I've refilled it with chocolates and it's hanging on the tree again this year.
I intended taking lots of photos throughout the day yesterday but I was too busy enjoying myself to remember. I did take some photos at dinner time though. We had three extra guests this year, my mum and dad spent the day with us and we also have Daniel's girlfriend staying with us this year. She's American and isn't travelling home this year so she's staying with us instead.
That's all I've got to show this month, short and sweet. Season's greetings to everyone, I do hope you're enjoying the festive period as much as we are.
