I actually don't like Christmas Eve very much. Your surrounded by all these lovely things you can't eat, drink or touch till tomorrow!
Add in three over excited kiddies trying to trash the place and sneak goodies away from kitchen! It's just a disaster.
However I am consoling myself with craft projects.
Today I finished a cross stitched card and finally sewed up a pair of knitted trousers for Gman.
I also sewed a few ribbon hairbands using the wonderful Brandy's page here
I took advantage of some free child labour while D was willing.
And finally said a sad farewell to the elves.
Yesterday they bought us felt tip pens and colouring pages.
This morning they said their farewells by letter and gifted the girls some DVDS.
They have arranged to catch a lift with Father Christmas later this evening.
I look forward to seeing them again next year.
