We had a wonderful Christmas Eve, with 8 guests - we were 12 people all together - for dinner, dancing and singing around the Christmas Tree and opening a bunch of gifts. The dinner table was set with little Lucias/Angels, hyacinths, clay cut-outs (made by my son), vintage (and some new) Christmas Tree "balls" (what are they called?) and tiny candles. All the colors were very bright and summery - hence they had to go with our dinner ware!!! We all loved it anyway ;o)
We are all enjoying the next few days of peace, with my husband at home - yay! - then comes New Years Eve at our friends house, Husband returning to work and a few more days off for my son and then everything will get back to normal....whatever that is!
