This week's smiles....week 451

 Here we are at another round up of smiles for the week.  It really does me good to focus on the smiles I've had during the's like a therapy when life gets difficult.  I know there are many who like to read the happy posts and several like to share their smiles so why not join in too?  Everyone is welcome.  Lets all do our bit to make the world a happier place to be.

The garden outside is all looking rather shabby now.  The frost has taken the flowers and many of the leaves have now dropped so I thought I'd share my orchids with you. The top two little pots have new little plants growing that I took off the pink one....and I've already given two away.  On the left you can see I have another flower shoot growing and the other plants keep giving with gorgeous blooms....I love them.

I've been given these gorgeous flowers this week and they are just too pretty to not share them with you all....hope they make you smile too.

Theo enjoyed a trip with his mum and dad to fetch their Christmas tree this week.  They went to a local place that allows you to choose your tree and actually cut it down yourself...and what fun they had.

I really love the photo of Mark lifting him up to put the star on the top of their tree and the gorgeous family photo of them all together.

I hope you have all enjoyed my smiles and will leave me a little comment so I know you've called in and will then link your smiles below.

Your orchids are lovely. It looks so green there, too. Your flowers are lovely, too. What a nice gift.

Theo never ceases to amaze me. He is SO mature. He even looks old for his age. How sweet he got to help with the tree cutting and decorating. Have a super rest of Friday and a great weekend, too. I'm off to rest my back now.

Oh those orchids are gorgeous! I'd love to have an orchid. Perhaps Father Christmas will bring me one this year.
And the winter bouquet is lovely. Beautiful colours too. A pleasure to the eye.
I love the photos of Theo. He is growing up fast. Didn't you say his mummy is pregnant again? I assume she is doing well.
The photo with Santa is intriguing. Is that a bread oven? (or pizza oven?)
Have a super weekend,
have a good rest,

You are very clever wit your orchids, which are beautiful. I have managed to kill a few in my time!
Theo sometimes looks older than his years. It is so special to help with decorating the tree.
Your flowers are lovely. What a nice gift.
Enjoy the run up to Christmas. Kate x

I love that happy little face - such lovely family times - all of them. Your flowers/plants etc are a credit to your green fingers - hopefully I can learn a thing or two. xx

Hi Annie, I did write up a post for today, on this phone, all I had to do was add the photos, thought I'd saved it but when i went to add the photos on my PC it wasn't there! I've never done that before. Anyway, your post is lovely. Your orchids and the bouquet of flowers are lovely. And the photos of Mark and family are super. You can see in the eyes of the little ones like Theo the wonder of Christmas. Have a fab weekend but don't work too hard. Hugs, Ellie xx
