The Tiniest Christmas Tree

And The Biggest, Warmest Wish To Each Of You

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


Standing no more than an inch tall, this piece of Swarovski crystal is the smallest Christmas tree in our home. As it is already December 25 here in Australia, and we've just got home from Midnight Mass, I'd just like to wish all my readers a wonderful Christmas. From every single member of the McMahon clan, to everyone in your family, may you have a precious Christmas and one to cherish forever.

What a beautiful little Christmas tree. Merry Christmas to you and your family and I hope Santa was good to you. What a trip he has tonight! As we get home from Midnight Mass, he will of course have been and gone...and continuing his round the world trek...hope your New Year will be filled with family warmth and good health for all.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL THE AUTHORBLOG FAMILY!!!

It's Christmas Eve day here and it's been snowing again since last night with no sign of it letting up anytime soon. Good thing my son-in-law has a 4-wheel drive so he'll come and get me tomorrow for Christmas dinner over there.

Hope you have a fabulous day with that gorgeous little Christmas tree.

A very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years David, to you and your family!
We're just getting ready now to go to the early service -at 4 p.m. -then will go to the 9 p.m. service after supper and the kids do their gift exchange. Santa doesn't arrive though for Kurt and Maya until tomorrow morning!
All is still not ready in my house but it is almost as ready as it's gonna be and the will be, as my old daughter says, "All good!"
Peace.

Merry Christmas David! I went to all three Christmas Masses this year - Vigil, Midnight and Morning - so I'm still recovering! I hope you and your family are filled with joy and peace this Christmas, and have a happy and blessed New Year.

p.s. Have you heard about the meaning of the twelve days of Christmas? I just looked it up the other day - it's quite interesting. And besides, it gives you an excuse to party for another 11 days! ;)

Oh that tiny crystal Christmas tree is priceless!
Sorry I'm so late in wishing you a wonderful Christmas! I hope it was filled with love, magic, joy and beautiful memories!
I am anxious to see what I've missed here for the past several weeks...but will have to wait until morning.
