Friday Smiles

Firstly one very big well done to Annie on your 200th Friday Smiles post... you really do inspire us to take a moment to reflect on our week and find the positives, the happy events and the laugh out loud moments....thank you Annie.
As it is practically Christmas eve my post is you to wish  you one and all a Very Happy Christmas and Wonderful New Year.
I'm busy at this time with a Christmas cake in the oven, happily have all the presents wrapped and food all ready for the festive eating.
 Here's our fibre optic Christmas tree on the back deck - it looks gorgeous twinkling away, changing colours against the night sky and I can see it through the kitchen window.
And here are the gorgeous grand daughters... in their Christmas outfits...
Here's wishing you all the best and hope to see you joining in the blogging fun next year with Annie. Cheers


  1. Ohhh so agree Robyn, your little cuties are definitely smile worthy as are the cake and the tree I do so love this time of year, it brings joy!
    Blessings of our Lord upon you as we remember Jesus' birthday and a healthy 2017.

  2. Your granddaughters are absolutely gorgeous!
    How organized you are Well done!
    I love the fibreoptic tree. I haven't seen those here yet. I would love one on our terrace.
    Wishging you a very blessed Christmas,

  3. Lovely post Robyn with lots of smiles, the girls are lovely. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and an even better New Year with lots more smiles of course!. Angela xXx

  4. I'm always amazed at how people spend Christmas when it's summertime. Your tree is fantastic, and I suspect your cake is as good as it looks in the photo.

    Of course, those granddaughters are the prize of the post. They are so adorable and growing SO fast. I'm always amazed at how much they grow each time I visit.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. I hope it is joyous and safe, filled with love and hope.

  5. Thanks for linking up your smiles and for your lovely comments. I feel so blessed to always be able to find something to smile about each week even when life throws its challenges at us....and we've had rather a lot lately. Focusing on the happy moments certainly helps.
    Wishing you a happy, peaceful Christmas and here's hoping we have lots of smiles to share in 2017.

  8. Hi Robyn, Loving your tree. I just don't have room for a tree.

    The girls look festive and I sho9uld think they are very excited.

    Hope you have a lovely Christmas. Sue

  9. I bet those two little ones had a wonderful time yesterday, and I hope you did too. I love the outside tree. No-one seems to have them here, but we have one indoors and put it right by the window so it can be seen from the street. Enjoy the rst of your week. Kate x
