i'm grateful for . . . love

Greetings all,
Can you feel the love??  We don't get to spend many Christmases as a family so we embrace them when we can.  I get all the shopping done, children sorted & my projects completed, so we can relax into a happy Christmas with our handsome soldier.  We know we are very lucky to have him home with us, safe & sound.  The lack of chaos allows plenty of time for love.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Two of my favourite things - my Welsh love spoon which is about 20 years old & my son, who makes love heart hands at me across his class room.  I seriously hope he never stops doing this, a mum can always dream??
 Ah, an early morning hot gingerbread chocolate with my middle girl.
 For more grateful posts, check out Maxabella Loves . . .
& a big splash of love to the family of My Pear Tree House, brought to my attention by Martha of Jelly Shane.  Here's looking at the moon for Jane tonight.  Love Posie

A Christmas spent with family...is BLISS! My Brother is in the army so they travel & move every 2 years...they're off to USA in 2 weeks, so for the next 2 weeks will be holidaying altogether....8 adults & 6 kids {all under 5} in one house...it'll be chaos....but oh so sweet!!!! I cherish time with loved ones!
Enjoy your weekend & your family Christmas!
