Christmas Past (2010)
This is my new decoration. I have found myself staring at it and wondering what it would be like to live in it. lol
Well Christmas seems like weeks ago but I still need to write a blog post about this year’s holiday – if for no other reason than knowing that I will want to go back and read about it next year.
On Christmas Eve, Paul and I finished our food shopping, then we had our usual scurrying around trying to wrap each others presents-without the other seeing. I then made and decorated my traditional cookies, which I promptly wrapped before the cookie monster i.e Paul, stole them. There were alot of cookies this year.
Christmas morning. with my sister, niece, nephews, Paul and my mum.

I was good this year, loads of cool pressies. Audio Chi headphones (cool pressie, cool sound), Fossil watch, Musical box loaded with Shortbread, Highland Soldier tin-with more Shortbread, Russian Nesting Doll, Knitting Nancy, DVD of Scrooge with Jim Carey, a Gruffalo, Fatface bag, scarf, hat and Hoodie. My super cool Merrle boots. I was a super spoiled Squirrel this year :D
