Christmas 2012 ...

Hello!

  photo (68)

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a lovely day here which went by way to fast for my liking!


Sarah heading to bed all excited Christmas Eve ...


Santa was very good this year and there was a lot of love for Michael Kors in this house! That fab watch is all mine (thank you hubs) but I have to get at least four links removed as it is huge on my wrist!
 The lovely burnt orange wallet is Laura's a gift from Sarah her goddaughter!


We had a lovely dinner which I had ready quite early this year just before 3 o' clock. Normally it is going to five before we eat but I thought it better to cook early and relax for the rest of the day! The heat in the kitchen was unreal with it being the mildest Chrismas weather we have had in ages, but I did take time to snap a quick outfit picture midway :)
 My Mango tweed dress was very comfortable apart from the fact the sweat was pouring out through me from checking a rather large turkey in the oven!



Badly needed that delicious cocktail made by Laura to cool me down whilst cooking:)


This is one of my favourite pics of the day, the girls snapped by my son Shane on Christmas morning:) Sarah is wearing a dress from Zara and Laura is in a lovely brocade number from Oasis. The menfolk were very camera shy this year so no photos allowed there!

Hope you all continue to enjoy the holiday season:)
Gearing up here for New Years Eve next!

    Your girls both look beautiful! Also loving your Michael Kors - my Hubbie got me the tortoise shell watch so I was also chuffed to find that underneath the Christmas tree.
