Merry Christmas… see you all soon!

Happy Christmas

Hello my little Christmas baubles…

Christmas Eve has finally arrived and I can’t even begin to describe how super excited I am (not just at the thought of what goodies Santa might leave below the tree) but because over the next few days’ I’m so completely blessed to be able to spend time with a few of my most nearest and dearest family members *woo hoo*

I may have mentioned in a previous post that tomorrow’s going to be a wildly busy day for the Rees household as we’re cooking Christmas dinner for nine rumbling tummies! Now while some would groan at the idea I must admit to being a bit of a ‘Monica’ and secretly love a bustling house filled with cheery faces that are undoubtedly going to get even cheerier as the day progresses *someone hide the cork-screw please*
To be honest the only one concern I have is how the heck I’m going to single handedly lift our rather huge turkey in and out of the oven… you’d be forgiven to think I’d bought a small Emu judging by the sheer size of it!

However the one thing I always look forward to the most is everyone gathered around the dining table, not just because of the yummy feast I’ve toiled over for the last 24 hours but simply being in a room filled with so much love. It really hits home the reason for the season & just how grateful I am to have these amazing people in my life.
Sure the gifts are exciting, the cards are cute and the turkey dinner is mega tasty but being in the presence of loved ones is by far the best pressie of all… don’t you agree?

So whatever table you’ll be perched around tomorrow wearing those goofy paper hats and telling horrendously bad cracker jokes – just take your time to savour the moment, the memories and everything else in between. There are so many others who want for nothing more than to be in our place.

Wishing you all an amazing day & hope Santa brings everything you hoped for 🙂

Merry Christmas Chums…
