I can't believe it will be only 6 weeks till Christmas eve this weekend. I can't tell you how excited the child inside of me still gets when it comes to day before Christmas, for me Christmas Eve is one of the most magical days of the year. Last year after preparing the food, Jon and I took a walk to the mere as it was looking so pretty as the snow was still heavy on the ground. The water was frozen solid, as show in the first picture, and people had upon lay on it to make snow angels! The poor geese and ducks were'nt having much fun though as they were all huddled together.
