I was inspired by Monique to do a LO using childhood Christmas pirctures of myself.
So here it is, sweet little me, only 3 years old, celebrating Christmas with my parents and my little sister.
Used the scrap-club january kit for this one too!

Journaling sais:
The merry family gatherings -
The old, the very young;
The strangely lovely way
they harmonize in carols sung.
For Christmas is tradition time -
Traditions that recall
The precious memories down the years,
The sameness of them all.




Also made with the scrap-club kit were this name card and menu to decorate the Christmas table:



I just came back from Christmas shopping. Had to buy the last presents. Got almost everything on my list, only one present left!
Tomorrow I'll go to my parents house with Marlijn to bring all the presents. It's a long year tradition now that we put the presents under the tree as soon as they are wrapped and on Christmas eve we all come together to have a nice meal and unwrap all the gifts.
On Christmas day my family in law is coming over to our house. With just one BIL and his girlfriend missing because they are out of the country, we will be 17 people and everybody is staying the night. Every couple brings something for dinner and this year it´s my turn to make the first course. I decided to make Carpaccio, mmmmmm, delicious :)
And after a big breakfast the next morning everybody goes his own way.
So I might say we have great days ahead!

Hope you're all looking forward to Christmas likeI do!
Have fun!
Birgit

I love your tablesetting Birgit!!! And I'm also familiar with the tradition of "Heiligabend" This year it's just me and my mum though, it's a shame how things sometimes change.

Have a lovely Christmas!!!
