A pretty, cold winter sky

All I could think about this Christmas was making gingerbread men, so make gingerbread men I did!

Getting together with friends at Christmas is probably the best part

Actually, seeing Hey Rosetta (My favorite band!) at their Christmas concert might have been the best part. There were mummers and it snowed and every song was amazing, as usual. You should give them a listen if you haven't before!

Oh, and there's me holding onto a few of the men I made.

This is where my pup can usually be found, napping in her cupboard in the kitchen. My parents are redoing the kitchen this winter and I'm not sure what she's going to think of it when she doesn't have a little corner with a blanket to nap in.

I ordered these silly sweaters for my brother, sister and I to wear Christmastime. It ended up being quite an ordeal getting us all in the same room to wear them, but they're so ridiculous that I'm glad we did.

Another one of my favorite things about Christmas - cracking nuts! (Is that weird?)

When we went visiting my Nan and Pop on Christmas eve, they had out a bunch of old photos. I fell in love with this one of the two of them in front of their Christmas tree when they were so young - isn't it dreamy?

My friend Heather made us all the cutest cards this year, look at those little buttons!

It has been unusually cold for December here in central Newfoundland this month, which I am one hundred percent not a fan of. However, when I went out to my car and saw this frost constellation on the windshield, I couldn't help but think it was pretty.

One of my nans gave me instax film for Christmas, so now I'm all stocked up to snap pictures of my adventures in England!

My cousin Robyn and I at the little outdoor Christmas Market my town had this year. It was bitter cold out so I warmed up with a latte, and naturally when my ten year old cousin decided she wanted a chocolate marshmallow I had to have one too. What? It was delicious.

How were your Christmasses? I hope everyone had a lovely time with family and friends and lots of holiday cheer. It was so nice spending loads of time with everyone in my hometown before I move. Everyone was all in one place which is a rare occasion.

Next up: The New Year and my move to the UK. I couldn't be more excited for both.

Happy New Year, dolls! See you in 2014.

Your Christmas looks so lovely :) I especially love the Christmas jumpers that you got your brother and sister, I think that next year I might order some cool/funny xmas jumpers and give them to my family as an early Christmas present so we can all wear them and feel festive! Lovely blog post :)
