Well......there is was, gone. No sooner than Christmas was coming than it's been and gone and so has the New Year celebrations so life can return to normal for another year.
So here we are on the first Friday of 2018 and I'm thankful that life is still giving me plenty to smile about. Here you go......
Milly is sat watching us doing the Christmas jigsaw....yes she likes to sit on a stool up at the table so she doesn't miss out on the fun!
Amy's three children were late finishing school before Christmas so are later than most going back after the holidays and have been enjoying this week with their mum.
Phoebe wanted to make some cakes so she has, all by herself weighed and measured the ingredients and made a really yummy batch of buns......Amy was proud that she was able to make them and I was even prouder because her mummy had spent the time with her to teach her so she could do it. Just look how she decorated them too.....well done Phoebe.
Lulu was given a kit to decorate your own birdhouse for Christmas and she has had a lovely time decorating and making it....here she is proudly showing it off to me.
They were given some money for Christmas and, as a special treat, Amy took them to a local build a bear factory for them to choose and make their own special furry friend.
Well that's my smiles for this week. Leave me a little comment so I know you've called by and, if you can, then please link up to your own smiles below.
