bonne noel....

the hubster & i have just finished wrapping all our gifts...
unusually for us....there's still an hour till midnight.....
the kiddos are tucked up all snug in their beds...
stockings have been hung with care...
in hopes that saint nicholas soon will be here...

we've had a little glass of baileys...
the two of us sharing that moment on christmas eve...
when you count your blessings together...

...so all i have left to do...
before tucking up my weary self in bed
is to wish all of you
my dear bloggy friends
my virtual coffee guests
...a wonderfully special & happy christmas...

my life is richer for having all of you in it
thank you
i hope your stockings are brimming over
i think you all deserve it!

    I just unwrapped the cushions and they look SO gorgeous!! Just the stockings to do now and I am off to bed :)

    We have been checking the Santa Norad Tracker all day to see where he is visiting next, the children love it! I am still checking even tho they have been asleep for a few hours....my husband is laughing at me!! He's in Denmark right now....Santa that is, not my husband ;)

  23. Ahhhh - helloooooo - it's now new year's eve as I type this so I am a little late to this wonderful festive Christmas Eve party! However I am sure Christmas was wonderful and that you'll be having a jolly time. May I just say the stockings were just - exceptional. How on earth did Santa know their names? They were just totally bowled over. And it warmed my heart that you did it. So I owe you! You made a family memory for a family you have never met all the way up there in the North and me as far South as you can be in this little island! Be back soon. Happy NYE! Lou xx

  26. Happy New Year, dear
    dear Melissa! Thank
    you for the lovely
    Christmas wish that you
    sent to me while I was
    "down and out" over the
    holidays. Still not
    100% but am feeling much
    stronger than before. I
    certainly hope that Christmas
    was a magic time for you
    and your family. I'm looking
    forward to continuing this
    journey of life with you
    and my other new blogging
    buddies close at hand. Big
    Monday hugs to you, today!
    xx Suzanne

  27. I think one good thing about Christmas is the amount of time couples get to spend together. I'm glad you and your husband get some time alone from the kids.
