When December fell upon us, I was no where near ready for it. I wanted it still to be mid year. Its flown by this year and we have had so many ups and downs and I just wasn’t ready for all the hustle and bustle that December brought.
We are now Mid-December and its taken some time, but finally its starting to look very much like christmas. This weekend we took the short walk to the garden centre and picked out our tree. Mr B carried the thing back and we spent Saturday morning decking it out with baubles and lights. Our house is officially ready for christmas and I can honestly say, I cannot wait now. I absolutely love my decorations this year the tree is a little mismatched but I kinda like that! Kids did good this year. I was a bit over protective of some of the baubles, but then I let them go wild with everything else.
Moo and H are so excited, opening the door to the advent calendar each morning to revel a picture and to get that single piece of chocolate before breakfast. They are both counting down the sleeps and are forever asking when Christmas Day is. This is why I love Christmas, the excitement in their faces and the joy it brings.
Over the next few weeks, I have tasked my self with the wrapping of presents while they are at school and I am feeling slightly giddy about it. It feels like the excitement has appeared over night and I like the feeling. The christmas vibes are finally here.
We have a busy Christmas this year, visiting family and enjoying the festivities with our loved ones. With lots of children in the family its going to be, busy, loud and most likely a little hectic, but it works and at the end of the day, its all for the children. To see their faces light up at the magic of it all.
