Festive Season 2011 (& A Happy New Year!)

So I started the first half of this post before Christmas. Sigh. 

One of my New Years Resolutions is to watch less TV and finish things I start. We will see how that goes.... Anyway, so this is now a combination Christmas and new year post! 

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas spent with those nearest an dearest to you xox 
Here is a little collection of images of what has been a very quiet festive season for us.

The tree, playing with Bokeh and cut out shapes! ha!

The gift wrapping this year so very very basic.
Red tissue paper, red and white twine, brown twine and Kraft paper. 
The tags I made by running different christmasey words through the printer at random and then adding a little deer stamp with red ink. 

Opening Christmas gifts (our yet to be born baby scored well in the pressie department, more about that later in the post), yummy lunch and nieces and nephews.

So that was Christmas, I cannot believe 2012 is already 2 days in!

As noted above, yes I am pregnant we are expecting our first child!!!

17 weeks pregnant to be exact! We have nicknamed it 'souvie' as we don't want to know the sex of the baby and don't want to call it 'it' all the time. Why souvie, well it was the little souvenir we did not realise we brought back from Cambodia.

2012 promises to make our dreams come true. I hope that, what ever your dreams are,  2012 is the year it all happens xox
