They all gathered around the tree to attach the baubles and tinsel. There was cheering, fighting, and quite a lot of excited screaming! Billy, of course, joined the fun.
Golly drew the short straw, and became this year's 'fairy'.
Here they are a bit later; waiting for the lights to be turned on..
They've met Santa, they've decorated the tree, and they've helped make Mince Pies and the Christmas Cake. Now, comes the worst bit, waiting 'patiently' for the big day.
Only a week or so to go, and everything, and everyone, is ready (almost). There are plenty of presents under the two trees, lots of Clementines ready for their stockings, and special Christmas pyjamas for that long sleep after too much pudding. Little Mischa (the Cherub) just can't wait.
It's going to be the best Christmas ever.
The wild locks on that wee one just made me Smile! Yes, Children really make the Holidays Special.ReplyDelete
Little Mischa makes me smile every time I see him, he's a real cutie, and his hair is just wonderful.Delete
You will all have a wonderful Christmas this year.ReplyDelete
We're having our main Christmas meals separately (they're veggies), but will spend Christmas eve together (barn), then have brunch together (here) on the big day. Things are looking good.Delete
What a marvelous scene. You are indeed going to have the best Xmas ever. Does santa wear a black beret? .ReplyDelete
I can feel the Christmas joy from here
Ps you reminded me about the clementines. I always put some in the stockings..and a walnut or two, to their bewildermentDelete
Santa is told NOT to wear his beret when delivering presents. Yes, we always put a few clementines and nuts in the stockings. I still find it strange that we can't buy Brazil nuts in their shells any more. Bloody bureaucrats!!!Delete
Just love the cherub's hair and the golly on the tree. xReplyDelete
Golly might have a halo by this afternoon!Delete
A lot of joy in your home.ReplyDelete
Good fun this year; as well as chaos, I expect.Delete
All very sensible stuff here.ReplyDelete
But no doubt you'll have half a glass of Wincarnis!!!Delete
I meant in your post actually. But whatever.Delete
I thought you were talking of Chez Rachel.Delete
Just perfect ..... you and Lady M must be thrilled to have them with you at Christmas. Ours will be coming Christmas Day and Boxing Day ...... we have just had our daughter in laws birthday which was Christmassy and went to a light show at a stately home so I’m feeling very Christmassy !! XXXXReplyDelete
A bit tricky with them being veggies, but we'll have two separate main meals, and two other veggie ones. It'll all work-out OK.Delete
Oh, the anticipation! The Cherub's hair is crazy!!ReplyDelete
I wish I had hair like his; or any hair really.Delete
Smiling widely. What a great day you will have.ReplyDelete
Of that we are sure.Delete
There’s a film on YouTube called A Child’s Christmas in Wales after the Dylan Thomas children’s story. It’s about a boy and his grandad and Christmas. Has good reviews. 58 mins running time so not too long.ReplyDelete
Thanks Gwil; I'll have a look. Of course, nothing can beat DT's story.Delete
Yes, G'pa, the best ever. Go for the gusto.ReplyDelete
Gusto is the order of the day. They have plenty.Delete
What beautiful boys! This is the Christmas of the best memories ever for you. Take lots of pictures.ReplyDelete
They were very busy yesterday. They both rushed in to see me (between other essential tasks), gave me a big hug and kiss, then ran off again. Life is becoming hectic.Delete
