Aaah - I LOVE this time of year. Nice and relaxed as the year draws to a close and a new one is about to begin. So who is still eating Christmas/Boxing Day leftovers? We're just about at the end of ours I think with ham toasties for breakfast. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
I dug out some of my Stampin' Up supplies the day before Christmas for some last minute wrapping and tag making.
Hannah made tags for her presents using MDS. (She bought some presents for us with her pocket money - such a sweetie.)
We woke up at our house Christmas morning - quite a rarity as we often stay at my mum and dad's. Our morning looked a bit like this ....
Jack pretty much thought everything was "awesome." Pokemon cards - awesome. Paints - awesome. A book - awesome.
We found a reasonably priced phone for Hannah (who has let us know for the last year that she's the only child in the entire universe without one apparently!) I think it is now surgically attached to her hand.
Off to mum and dad's for a delicious Christmas lunch and dinner with my side of the family. I love all the traditions of our Christmas. The plates that were my grandparent's wedding set, the tablecloth handed down from past generations, the cutlery that was a wedding gift to mum and dad.

Home again to our place then we did it all again on Boxing Day with John's side of the family. It was our turn to host this year. Class ladies - my class table got a Christmas makeover!
A lovely day of family, fun, billiards, basketball, photos and catching up. And of course - lots of EATING! I don't think I need to eat for a week now.
We had family staying for a few extra days so organised an excursion to the Melbourne Star. Nice way to see the city.
So that was our Christmas. I hope yours was wonderful. I do love this post Christmas week too - a bit of relaxing down time. We're having a bit of a rumpus room makeover with some help from Ikea.
Before I go, here's a peek at this week's Weekly Deals for anyone wanting to do some specials shopping to add to their craft collection. Some great framelits this week.

Have a great week and I hope you've got some creative time happening.
