I kept the decorating mainly to the living room, dining room and kids tv room but did put a small tree in the bedrooms.
In our room I bought a skinny tree which I put inside a zinc pot I've had for ages and hung a simple white tin star from the top. I also taped a small sign to the panelling on the wall.
For the kid's rooms I bought bigger spindly 'Frech style' trees and I put Lily's inside a large pot I found at an antiques centre a while back (the one with the missing handle). I helped her choose the decorations for it as she was drawn to huge baubles which were just too big.
Her little Maileg bunnies are sitting under the tree.
I put a picture of her looking 'angelic' in a lovely grey frame I bought in France earlier this year. On the same trip I also bought her the little ceramic pot with the bird on top (my idea was that she could one day use this for earings however she has no desire to have her ears pierces just yet so it's empty!).
Seth couldn't drag himself away from the Xbox for long enough to decorate his tree so it's not worth photographing. It's the same kind of tree as Lily's and covered with lights but just one decoration which I bought in Majorca earlier this month.
Dinner is served!
My husband is a great cook and as always our Christmas dinner was stunning!!
Excuse the scruffy garden - it's on our 'to do' list but pretty far down so I try to avoid getting it in photos as much as possible.
Hope you are all having a lovely and relaxing Christmas - I know I am.
