I love Christmas and the lead up to it. I love the food, catching up with friends and family and just hanging out together and discussing the year in review and the plans for the next year. I come from a large family and this year is going to be a particularly big bash. We have some special visitors from France this year so hopefully they don't pass out from the heat or get carried away by the mosquitoes.
This year we are staging our Christmas dinner under the huge and beautiful liquid amber tree at my parent's house. Big plans are ahead and my eldest sister and I are going all Martha Stewart on ourselves. Our big vision at the moment is of a twinkly, white, silver, green wonderland. That's the plan anyway, I'll be sure to take some pics of our efforts. The only downside to Christmas this year is my youngest sister, Sarah, is in Germany for Christmas. Although she'll be having a fab time with her new fiance and his family, she will be missed.
