Christmas in the Reaveley household

Christmas is all about the kids isn't it , and of course I am mama to the most beautiful granddaughter in the whole world - Maisie Lilly. She is not well at all and so didn't wake up until 9am.. It was all I could do not to shake her awake lol. She is not quite 3 and so is still a little bemused by it all as you can see.

Of all the pressies the thing that impressed her the most was the baddies in her Scooby Doo van. I know its blurred but I just love her face on this one.

I was then summoned to pick up the girlie's . Here's the Resident bit of Glamour.

And, of course, The Goddess.

Mr Unbribeable shows his softer side

And here's the one that no one ever sees. Love this photo of Tom but doesn't Maisie look like a little urchin???

No the girlie's never touch a drop!!!!

Here's my favourite pressies of the day. Mr Unbribeable chose this himself.

And how about these from the girlie's, roll on February!!!

And from Ben this is my fave author. I own every one of her books, all in hardback, and was itching to get this one.

And from Tom, you can never go wrong with me , with good old Motown.

And it wouldn't be Christmas without good old Special Toffee, I think I have about 6 boxes now.

Ben's girlfriend Katie came round after tea with more Thornton's .

And my ultimate favourite , a bottle of Baileys. This is the bottle count today so far lol

And then would you believe it Toms girlfriend Laura came round with yet another bottle of Baileys, Yayy!! You can never have too many toffees or Baileys. \Mind you I bet nobody drinks it like I do. On ice topped up with double cream. Luvvly!!!

And here's a little festive leg watch for you. Shimmery, glittery and oh so me. Woop woop!!!!

So there you go - Christmas at the Reaveleys. I am sat here typing this with champagne in hand, so please excuse me if its not up to scratch!!!!

I would like to say a very big thank you to each and every one of you who take the time and trouble to read my daily witterings. It makes me feel very honoured and humble . A very Merry Christmas to each of you. I salute you one and all xxxxx.

Merry Christmas! Your home looks WONDERFULLY Christmassy and your family look beautifuuly happy! The best part of MY Christmas was spending it with my family - I feel very sentimental this year, don't know why? I LOVE your blog - it always makes me smile. I only found it recently but I'm now totally addicted! I look forward to reading it in 2009 - Happy New Year! I hope it is exciting, creative, safe, happy and sparkly for you!
