With the arrival of December we are well and truly embracing the Christmas spirit in our house and feeling festive! My mum made Monkey this fab advent calender and he is loving finding the number every day and eating a chocolate. The only trouble is reminding him it is just one a day hehe! We also got a gorgeous Christmas Tree from Pines and Needles last weekend which we had great fun decorating. (You can read our review here and find an offer code too!). We don’t normally put the tree up quite this early but Monkey is really happy we have! He’s actually a little obsessed with Christmas and asks about 50 times a day when Father Christmas is coming. He also wants to read his Christmas storybooks every night! Ooh it may be a long month ;).
We also went to a Christmas Craft fair at a local stately home with some of hubs’ family which was really lovely and a lot of fun. There was som lovely things available and alo a fine food fair where I found some Dairy free chocolate (yay) and enjoyed some mulled win. We had a lovely time with hub’s family, Little Miss got lots of cuddles and Monkey particularly enjoyed running round with his Granny!
We’ve also started our Christmas crafting, I shared a post with our cute Snowmen Decorations and there are a few more crafts I need to write about which I will hopefully get a chance to do soon! There was one interesting point this week where Monkey and I were covered in glitter and glue and Little Miss woke up needing a nappy change. Eek! Don’t you just find glitter gets everywhere? All part of the festive fun though.
So yes we are feeling festive, what word sums up your week? Are you getting in the Christmas spirit yet?
