Happy Christmas Y’all!
There is nothing more beautiful that a home decked out in Christmas decorations, packed with excited children, two happy (although they have no clue what they are happy about) puppies and full of the delicious smells of a festive feast cooking! This Crochet Star Garland has to be my all time favourite decoration this Christmas…so much so, that I’m considering leaving it up the whole entire year round!This is the day that we’ve all been waiting for, preparing for and getting excited about for so long! One thing I’m particularly looking forward to is tucking into one [read: some] of these tiny wee single serve Christmas Cakes made by my lovely Mum…I think we can see where I got my passion for baking from!
It’s hard not to get a wee bit nostalgic and sentimental at Christmastime – all the family traditions, the making of new traditions and (here’s my favourite part) taking time out to relax and enjoy each others company!
This Christmas is a Christmas of firsts. Many of our chums will be celebrating Baby’s first Christmas – now, I’m pretty sure that it doesn’t get much more magical than that! This is our pup Waffle’s first Christmas too (not quite the same, but I’m making a massive fuss of him none the less!) – I’ll be completely honest with you. I don’t think that he ‘gets’ the whole thing. He gave a huge ‘paws up’ for the new chew toy and bags of treats…but, I don’t think that he was super impressed with the pup version of the Christmas sweater and mini antlers!
You can be sure that while we are surrounded by some of our family, we shall be raising a glass to those dear to our hearts that we can’t share this special day with.
This is also Made Peachy’s first Christmas! I can’t believe that six months ago I shared a tasty recipe for Salted Caramel Shooters…and have been sharing a little something every day since! Don’t worry, dear reader, I am not about to descend into a soppy mess (although, I could quite easily do so!) The last six months have been incredible, and I feel pretty blessed to have met so many amazing people, visited some incredible place, and have so many awesome experiences. But, most of all, I’m utterly thrilled that so many of you guys spend a few moments of your day, stopping over at Made Peachy! So, here’s where I say a huge Thank You (and, get a little choked up) and that I hope that Santa’s been good to y’all!
Oh! If you were thinking of gifting me with anything this year, you know what would be really sweet? Well, Made Peachy has been entered into the National UK Blog Awards 2014! and, if you’ve enjoyed reading Made Peachy for these last six months I would be truly stoked if you’d Vote for Made Peachy!
Now, we really all must get back to our nearest and dearest and enjoy this amazing day…but, before I go, let’s have one more look at that sweet little Christmas puppy!
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!
