Two days until Christmas and there's one very excited little girl in this house! We've been enjoying some true Kiwi summer weather over the past few days which has meant a lot of hanging out by the pool and barbeques :)
Later today I'm taking Hannah, Zoe and a friend to see Annie at the movies - this was one of my childhood favourite movies, I even had a little Annie doll, so it will be interesting to see what this remake is like. It looks like there's a few good movies coming out over the Christmas holidays and Mum and I have plans to go see the last in the Hobbit series too.
I don't think I shared a pic of this Christmas wall hanging, this was a kit by the Birdhouse.
Hannah and I had a lot of fun in the kitchen on Sunday morning, getting some more Christmas goodies made before it got too hot.
Christmas hedgehog slice, recipe here, candy cane chocolate cupcakes and reindeer gingerbread, recipe found here.
I finished all my gift stitching earlier in the month and even though I have plenty of projects waiting in my stitching basket, I couldn't resist starting this sweet Christmas Celebration Sampler by the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. The chart can be purchased here. The fabric I'm using is 32ct Crystal Fossil by Picture This Plus.
A visit to the library yesterday to stock up on a bit of reading for the next few weeks - we might be heading away for a few days after New Year's and then I'm taking the girls away for few days to Palmerston North when Glenn heads back to work so here's hoping there's going to be plenty of quality reading time!
Well, that's it from me until after Christmas! I wish you a very Merry Christmas with your family and friends, filled with lots of happy times, laughter and yummy food too! Thank you for friendship during 2014, and for stopping by here. Take care and all the best for the festive season!
