Family- SOUS reveal Dec 23rd

Panic has finally set in, only one more day till its Xmas Eve and here in Finland, we actually do our Christmas thing on the Eve.. We get together and have a big dinner, then the Santa actually comes over with a big bag of gifts, sits around and sings xmas songs with the kids and finally passes out all of the gifts.. About a hour later, he hugs the kids and tells them to be good all year till next Xmas..  Ok!, my kids are in their late teens and there's no way, I can pull off  Santa coming over...LOL  so, were going to be doing all of the above, except for the Santa bit... 

but, even in my last minutes of hecticity, I did get a chance to get a layout done, at the "St.Nick" of time...(I'm so funny, ain't I?)  I absolutely loved the sketch that our very own Sandi Clarkson created for this week, and I wanted to do a Xmas layout, since I had not done one yet this year..

Here is my take on our sketch:
 and the sketch:

My oldest (the one in the LO) is 24 and living with her boyfriend, but I still talk to her almost everyday. Have a Merry Christmas!
