friday five: what i love most about this time of year

Christmas is always such a special and much welcomed time. It gives Husband some much needed time off work {though, annoyingly, he still is asked to do work during his holidays}, some family time, lots of outings and lots of relaxing at home. In case you failed notice I love Christmas and here are five things I love the most.

1. Family time - here's Bailey at her Kindy Christmas party, all festive in red.
2. In Australia, Christmas = Summer but that doesn't stop Husband and I indulging in hot chocolate, mostly under the cool air conditioning. My current favourite is from Williams-Sonoma because it has real chocolate flakes.
3. Baking. Oh, the baking and all the chocolate.
4. Summer fruit. I dislike the heat {I get heat stroke very easily and that ain't fun} but, gosh, I adore summer fruit. Cherries. Blackberries. Raspberries. Blueberries. Strawberries. All the fruit. All the time.
5. Precious memories/mementos. At Bailey's Christmas party they gave us some of her Kindy-made goodies as a present and it was one of the most wonderful things I'd ever been given.

And that's what I love about this time of year. What about you?
