I asked each sister to gather me some photos that the other liked as I was making a surprise for their sister ;)
I then made this name books filled with old and new photos of them and their lovely families.

They said there'll be snow at Christmas They said there'll be peace on Earth But instead it just kept on raining A veil of tears for the Virgin's birth I remember one Christmas morning A winters light and a distant choir And the peal of a bell and that Christmas Tree smell And their eyes full of tinsel and fire They sold me a dream of Christmas They sold me a Silent Night And they told me a fairy story 'Till I believed in the Israelite And I believed in Father Christmas And I looked at the sky with excited eyes 'Till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn And I saw him and through his disguise
I wish you a hopeful Christmas I wish you a brave New Year All anguish pain and sadness Leave your heart and let your road be clear They said there'll be snow at Christmas They said there'll be peace on Earth Hallelujah Noel be it Heaven or Hell The Christmas you get you deserve.
La la la la la la la la la la....
Family Christmas' used to be a time of Hussle and Bussle in our house. Mum would spend most of Christmas Eve in the kitchen slaving away over the largest Turkey seen to man!!! Presents were never opened until Little Nan arrived, with the remainder of the day spent playing with gifts or sleeping of all that food! Christmas in our house is very different much quieter and less food!!!

So here are my pages.
and It's all about me!!!!!
Just something that started by accident, when Trav brought me home a star from his work for a few years.
They started out as Marie Curie Charity stars and now Trav can't get these anymore he searches far and wide each year to find me the prettiest star he can. I have eight one for each Christmas we have spent together.

Beautiful baby dogs everywhere you look. 13 perfect pups!
A first for me: coloured fairy lights; very pretty
A new star every year, from my wonderful hubby Travis. (I have 8 now)
Lots of new dec's this year, red & gold Balls for my tree.
Each year I go to Sainsbugs and buy their Christmas bear.
Sorry about the tosh photo, but it is dark now most evenings by the time I have finished my LO.

I recall Christmas' being so perfect when we were children. Mum always made every thing so magical, we spend many of these with my grandparents and I remember : deep snow, open fires, chocolates and great presents. Never a cross word, although i beat there was a few!! I don't remember them.
