Well, I sit to write this amid the hustle and bustle of Christmas. To be honest, only my Mum and Grandma are busy in the kitchen, but if I crane my neck to look past our computer desk, I can see a large table surrounded by chairs, set with Christmas crackers, vases of roses, and elegant wine classes. This table will hold sixteen people this evening when our friends come over to dine with us.
It’s 2:45, and gosh has the time flown? We awoke this morning at 8 and after an hour or so, commenced the Christmas morning. In our house, this begins with Lydia and I dancing around the lounge to Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You soon joined by the rest of the fam. Loads of fun! Then, Lydia and I act as the official present givers and hand out the presents one or two at a time from under the tree until they are all unwrapped – a long but satisfying process. Christmas music and games are played, and then some down time before the rush to decorate and prepare food for the evening feast.
Well, I thought I’d quickly fit in a Christmas post during this ‘down time’, so here I am. Rhesa and I had fun doing another photo shoot recently and we both thought that this outfit would fit perfectly into a New Zealand Christmas.
New Zealand’s national Christmas flower is the Pohutukawa, so we thought it fitting for me to pose in front of this tree. The flowers are meant to be a bright red, but these are a more pinkish colour. Never mind, pink’s all good!
So, the people at Creative Touch, namely me, would like to wish you all a very MERRY Christmas!!! May it be one filled with great joy whether you have much or little. I pray that 2013 will be filled with blessings from God, may you know his presence. Bless you, I appreciate your support! Enjoy this Christmas outfit!
Although I have had my turn of listening to Christmas music this day, I have now switched to some funky upbeat tunes. Puts a smile on my face. 50 Ways to Say Goodbye by Train, and Favourite Song by Toby Mac. 😀 Cool songs.
My very own special season’s greetings to you all!
P.S. And let’s not forget what this season really is all about – the celebration of the birth of our Lord and my best friend, Jesus Christ! Here’s to you Jesus 🙂
