This is a beautiful song by Bing Crosby, which speaks from my heart. I've finally finished decorating my X'mas tree & my cozy home. This year's theme is Red. I've been using cartoons for the past years: Hello Kitty, 101 Dalmatians, Disney etc. LOL!
lovely christmas tree with decorations
I've even thought of the Angry Birds theme, since I've just visited their HQ in Finland. But decided to go simple instead, with my fibre optic tree.

I've just made Baked Rice for dinner last evening & I’m dedicating this recipe to you, wishing you lots of presents this X’mas & love in your family.
