Baby it's Cold Outside

It really is cold isn't it?!
Warmer than it was, but still cold.

This week we've been doing things like this...writing letters to Santa.
These photos were taken last year (Hollie didn't want to write one this year)
And I used this new Sketchy Thursday sketch

And we decorated our tree after school on Monday. All the other deccies are now up and lights too. It feels very Christmassey and cozy : )
We've also baked chocolate chip cookies this week, I been Christmas shopping with a friend, done some pretty gift wrapping, made some honeycomb which I won't talk about and made the most delicious beef stew with cheese dumplings from my current fave magazine, which you can get the recipe from here.

All in all a busy but fun week.

The new sketch is up from Twisted Sketches.
Here's my sneak, you can see it here.

lol - we have that tradition too! I have pictures of very sugary, doughnut covered girls! I meant to scrap that. Looks like a lovely layout.

Tree is beautiful! And love the other layout as well. Lx
