Are you ready to sing? One, two, three:
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!" (Don't you just loooove the Bublé version!)
I hope you are all happy and relaxed. Please don't get stressed. I'm more or less ready for Christmas. It's just going to be me and hubby. Bliss!
I have the menu sorted and the meat bought. I have ordered brussels' sprouts at the local veggie place (sprouts are difficult to find here) and she will have some in on Saturday. Hurray! (I suppose the Spanish don't eat sprouts).

I would like to share a few more photos from Madrid today as this blog is about smiles. I will be linking up with Annie at A Stitch in Time where we share the silver lining of the past week.
One of the highlights was a visit to the Lindt shop (Lindt is a famous European brand of quality chocolate). Here is the hubby holding his haul (It was his birthday after all!).

Now, I mustn't forget my postcard. It's the naughty aunties again, designed by Finnish Inge Löök. This one I received last week from Germany.
How about some funnies?

May your holidays be filled with love and good company and memorable moments.
