a Snap a Set & a Song - Family

my Snap

I'm sure you're already aware unless you really do live under a rock that it was Christmas Day two days ago.
For Christmas we alternate being with my family & my husband's family.
This year is was my fam's turn, at the family farm.
I love it when all 16 of us are in the same place at the same time.
Here are the 'grown-ups' (minus me taking the photo).
The kids were at their own table behind me.

my Set

My family Christmases are always as casual as you can get!
Which I love, because I love being comfy on Christmas Day.
But my heart still wishes for a little glamour.
So here's what I would love to wear if I belonged to the Forrester or Kardashian Family.
(Thank God I don't!!)


my Song

And now a song from one of our favourite family movies.

With Some Grace


  1. While it doesn't happen at Christmas, at our holidays we always get together as a family. Often we have been 2 dozen or more.

    From my family to yours - wishing you the happiest and healthiest of New Years.

  2. Loving the dress! If only I had somewhere to wear it!

  3. I love your set too! I can imagine wearing that dress and shoes. God knows where!

  4. That version of We Are family is very cool! The red dress is a stunner! Don't you just love Christmas? Hope you had the best time! xx

  5. What a gorgeous dress!

    Hope your Christmas was a Merry one!

  6. What a beautiful dress. I'd get myself a light fabric version and wear it anyway! If you can't pretty up on Christmas Day when can you?

  7. Great set!! LOL. Forresters. I could soooo be a Forrester ...
    Merry Christmas Thea!
    From me and my beautiful Sew Thea apron.

  8. I'm in Queensland and we have to be casual for Christmas. It's too hot to be anything else. I hope you have a wonderful New Year. Rachel xx

  9. That red dress is striking! We're lays dressed down for Christmas too. Too hot, otherwise!

  10. Oh I love that dress. Like Rachel I'm in QLD so Christmas ends up being about comfort. I do miss our Christmases in the UK though - hubby and I were on our own mostly so we'd usually be away and doing something more dressy (or more fun).

  11. Great ss&s today. I love that dress too! Can't really imagine swanning into the family shindig in that though - wouldn't want to stand too close to the BBQ!
