Merry Christmas from Normandy.

After a few weeks of neglecting the NL blog I've popped back on to wish all my friends and followers in blogland, especially the special ones who've shared the MM journey with me

and to share a few snaps taken around the place this month as we prepared for the festive season.

Wreaths on the front doors began the Advent season.
Logs stacked by the wood burning stove made sure we stayed cosy and warm
(Baby It's Cold Outside!).
Old Saint Nicholas came bearing gifts on December 5th.
The Salvation Army began singing carols.
and
the Santa tree, with Olaf directing, went up in the sitting room.


Last month we celebrated a special birthday by surprising my sister with a family trip to Disneyland Paris.
Colonial Williamsburg characters carolling on the first Sunday in Advent.
A pair of rose gold sequinned Minnie Mouse ears is the only decoration this tree required!
Gotta love Olaf, do you wanna build a snowman?
Our time at Disneyland Paris was a wonderful occasion to celebrate and a great way of getting close family together for a pre Christmas treat.

 All the "girls" chose a set of Mouse Ears to accessorise their outfit, as a lark I popped mine on the Christmas tree for a Whatsapp silly photo before getting down to the serious job of decorating it.

So, from these lovely chaps, the SP and myself  


Joyeux Noël à tous Joining Angie for Mosaic Monday @ Letting Go Of The Bay Leaf

  4. Merry Christmas, Maggie and your SP, et Joyeux Noel. We're celebrating Christmas tomorrow (Christmas Eve) with our family so that they can go to the "other side" on Christmas Day. MM didn't even register with me this week. Looks like a fun time with your family at Disney Paris.

  7. Maggie - so glad you added your mosaics to MM this week! Thanks again for all your support in the transition … I am enjoying the role of host! Your decorations are festive and are ideal for your vintage home setting. I love visiting Disney resorts at holiday times - they pull out all the stops (even more than normal) with decorations! Merry Christmas to you and yours, my friend!
