This month has already been so magical. I worked out (and shocked myself) that this will be the twins 4th Christmas! But as they are going to be 3 years and 3 months this year, this feels the best one yet. The twins are at such a fantastic age – full of wonder and excitement and have just loved everything that we have done so far.
Over the weekend we went to a Christmas Fair and saw a puppet show and picked up some gifts and decorations. It was so nice to be able to walk around with them, chat to them and see their little faces light up. They are becoming so much easier to take out; it is such a nice experience.
We also saw Father Christmas on Sunday too which was amazing – and as it was quiet they got to chat to him, tell him what they want for Christmas and get some chocolates!
One of the big highlights of the weekend though was getting the Christmas tree. It took us (me) some time to pick it…well it is such a big decision! We went for a real tree, a 6ft one and it now proudly sits in the living room.
In our previous home we never really had any ‘perfect Christmas tree corners’ (if that makes sense). In every corner of the downstairs of the property the tree was either blocking something or obstructing a doorway. In our new family home however, our living room is such a lovely size, and it sits perfectly in the bay window. Sparkling and glittering in the window!
Harry & Lottie loved helping and (surprisingly) they were really good! I didn’t have to correct it after they had gone to bed! They hung the baubles on and thought the whole process was such fun. They ran down the next morning and couldn’t wait to see the tree!
I am feeling so festive now and very excited about the next few weeks ahead. Just got to finish the presents and wrap them all – and get all the food ready to feed 10 people on Christmas Day! Eeeeek!
Happy Christmas x
