Christmas is coming!

That's what my kid is always asking me; Is it Christmas yet?, lol...

He wants it to come right  away. We made the Christmas tree last weekend and today we had a little Christmas-is-coming lunch, lol... 
Oh, I thought the pics showed the tree but it's only in the back side so I have to make more pics of the tree itself, lol... 
This is a closer view of my all time favorite Christmas table linen. I bought it the first year we had Christmas as a married couple and had used it since then. It's so special for me and soooo beautiful! I live in a street called "Flor de Pascua" that means Poinsettia so I adore having my home filled with them during the holidays, but now the plant itself but everything related (I am soooo bag with plants!)
My table setting during the holidays. Haven't got a holidays full china so I love to use my wedding one. I adore it and everytime I use it I feel like newwed, lol... It's Rose Garland from Royal Albert and I am so afraid now because it's out of stock now and hard to find one. But love it even more because of it, lol...
Lol... I love this enamelware from MacKenzie-Childs! I bought them in a huge sale they had and I LOVE to cook in them, even if it's a simple soup like we had today. It's so cute to put it in the table!
We had some "Secret" meat. It was called secret by the butchers as they always kept it for themselves because it was sooooo good. It's so greasy but sooo tasty too, lol... As always not the healthier is the tastier, lol...
And some Swedish potatoes with onions

We tried this malt-Christmas-beer from Ikea, but only Henry was brave enough to finish it, lol...

And, since I've been not blogging so much lately I have many pics to share. Here they are some of them...
First is this makeover I made with a twin set I liked so much but that doesn't fit me anymore, at least not like before, lol... I made the top smaller and the cardigan too but didn't make the sleeves properly, lol... I'll have to remake them but love how Celita looks like with it. There are some pics of her wearing it too.

Here's Henry and Celita trying sunglasses in the shop, lol... They always have a blast in the shops, the girls love them so much they make them feel so special all the time!

Isn't she lovely with her matching dress and coat? lol... She's here playing with this set of Carolina Herrera's new perfume. She opened and closed it all the times you can imagine... She spent half morning playing with it... 



Oh, and yesterday Carlos celebrated his birthday with a barbacue party and I can't tell how much I ate! lol... Elma made the hamburguers with Jamie's recipe, also oven baked potatoes with fresh romero, OMG everything was so tasty I couldn't stop! (you can see me behind Carlos the first in the queue waiting for my burger, lol...) 
HO, and here's the presentation page of the new Christmas Marie Claire Idees magazine. I found it so cute I had to share... I did read it while having one of the most expensive breakfast I have ever had! It was a shame to pay almost 7 euros for a coffee and a sandwich!
And this pic I just don't know why I like it os much but I truly do, lol... It's my baby with her sweet face!

Celiaaaa, uf creí que me habías olvidado o algo, yo a tí no! solo no quería pegarte el trancazo... en mi oficina funciona asi: las chicas tenemos trancazos, los chicos esguinces... que mala epoca!

Yo ya he tenido mi primer regalo de Navidad, mi compañero y sin embargo amigo, Raúl, va a tener una niña! como solo hay dos chicos en el departamento les mimamos como a niños pequeños, así que la noticia nos tiene a todas locas, como si en realidad fueramos las "futuras tías"

Pos* claro que no te había olvidado, lo que pasa que los últimos posts de tu blog eran un poco demasiado profundos para mi pre-party yo que sólo piensa en cosas simples porque el resto de mi cerebro está ya metido de lleno en la Navidad! lol...
