Remember When life was so much easier

Life has been so busy with raising children, running a business,working fulltime you sometimes forget the simple things in life. Remember how things were when you were younger. Today there is so many chemicals and additives added into our everyday items. This year our family is trying to llive a more natural life. This blog will contain recipes, gardening tips, links to other blogs who share the same passion as I do.

Christmas Eve 2011

Well finally everything is ready for the big day tomorrow. Decorations are hanging up.  Handmade and store bought. 
Our Grand daughter made this at Prep for me to hang in our house.  I love it.

I Believe do you.  I have always believed in the magic of christmas.

Christmas Decorations.  so many to choose between but I do love the simple snowflake or bauble.  I love the colours green, red, gold and silver.  But I don't have a designer tree.  Mine is a bit of a mish mash.  But we love it.

Lots of presents await for opening in the next 24 hours.   Today we had lunch at my SIL with her hubby and son and my children and grandchildren joined us.  It has been awhile since we had been together.

Youngest Daughter Emma with hubby Adam and our youngest grandson Eli.

I know over the next couple of days I will have the chance to get many photo's of my family.  Especially the grandchildren.  Even though sometimes they can be trying they truly are a gift and I love them dearly. 

My eldest grandson Callum has been busy losing teeth for christmas so maybe Santa may bring him his front tooth.  It definitely hasn't stopped him from eating.

Tomorrow morning we are up early heading to my eldest Daughters place for the traditional breakfast feast of Waffles, icecream, whipped cream, fresh strawberries, banana and maple syrup.

From my family to yours we hope you all have a wonderful christmas and a safe one.

Sisters are forever.

Its been awhile since I have blogged on this blog but with christmas only a week or so away I just can't stop thinking about my beautiful sisters I have.  This christmas will be hard because it is our first christmas without my little sister.  It is also my 11 christmas without my eldest sister.  One thing for sure I know where ever it is or where ever they are, they are together watching over us.  Our angels.
While my sister Cheryl and I celebrate christmas with our family we know you two are there with us.
