JYC- It's beginning to look ...

a bit like Christmas around here...
I'm just documenting December/Christmas as and when I can this year as I did last year
I went straight to my Dad's after work last night - and when I got home - two people had been very busy - what a lovely surprise..It looked very festive - wanna see ?
                                                                  The tree was up
                                                       Glitzy Santa - old but we love him..

This reindeer has to come out - he was always a real favourite when the boys were little and TY toys were all the rage- remember them ?
                                                                    and mr snowman
and we always have our little blue wooden tree with the tiny ornaments - we bought this in Germany two years ago when we went to Oberammergau- every shop window was choc-a-bloc with wooden decorations.
and he is affectionately known as 'arrr missmass ' the boys' name for father christmas when they were little..
and I just had to have a try at one of those - reflective bauble photos ...

hmmmm - not bad- not brilliant either !

Your tree looks beautiful, Denise, and how lovely to see that the men in your life are really stepping it up for you. First cooking pasta, now helping you decorate! :o) I'm glad, you deserve and need it right now. xo!

Loved seeing your Christmas pretties and also your self-portrait. :o)!

It looks wonderful! Ours should go up this weekend. I'm really looking forward to it.

When TTO was little, he had a reindeer like that - called Reindolph, a mix of reindeer and Rudolph
