Presents underneath the tree


I hope that this post finds you all well and merry after the festive period. I have been delayed by a few things... you know how it is, Christmas just seems to take over. It's all about the fun, presents, food and of course family and because of that, it is one of my favourite times of year. We do not see our nieces and nephews as often as we would like, and Christmas has been all the more special because of the time we have spent with them.

Using my hand-crafted wrapping paper (and a bit from the shops), R went all out this year and wrapped the presents with homemade garlands too.  There is a family joke that R and I have shares in sellotape because we  wrap the parcels so tightly nobody can open them! To us it makes the experience last longer (watching them struggle that is, ha ha!).

That's not all. There was an extra addition to the table this year, yum yum!

Take care, enjoy the holiday season and I will be back soon with more photographs of this year's Christmas festivities.

Wow! such beautifully wrapped gifts Andy. I am sure everyone was thrilled with them. The gingerbread house looks yummy.
Hope you have a few more days off work to enjoy the holiday.sys

Thank you so much for the wonderful surprise Christmas ornament! It really made my day to arrive home after Christmas to find it in my mail box. And I've enjoyed your posts over the last couple of days.
Hope your 2014 is wonderful.
