Our Little Christmas

This year our Christmas will be like no other.  For the first time in 26 years, I won’t be having Christmas in the UK.  Our parents and my brother are coming to visit us for 3 weeks and we are having Christmas in our little apartment.  Yes, that is 7 of us in our 1 bed apartment for Christmas dinner.  We only have 2 bar stools but have managed to borrow a table to seat 6, so one of us will have to perch on a corner!

Over the years we have collected decorations that are special to us.  However, we didn’t bring anything Christmassy over to the US with us.  We managed to get a bargain of a Christmas tree from Target; a pre-lit 6ft tree for $15.  We also bought a packet of plain baubles as I am a little against glitter (it just gets everywhere!) and some candy canes.  When we first arrived in the US, we had a trip to New Orleans and we bought 2 metal skull decorations from a quaint little store.  These were added to our little for their first Christmas.

Sunday Sevens #13

Oooops…I am a day late this week! We have been so busy getting things ready for when our parents arrive in just over a week! We still have a lot to do but we are making good progress!
We have also decided to get married while they are over here! 😀 We are very excited and now need to plan everything… for the 27th December!

So, here is my week:

1. Finished the dress that I had cut out last week. I like the style but the collar looks slightly odd when the dress is on.
