Feeling Festive.. Christmas Decorations, Letters to Santa and Meeting the Man Himself

'Tis the season to feel jolly and although December is the most manic month of the year for us work wise, we're feeling festive and we're loving how amazing being a parent at Christmas time feels. Because there really is nothing better than seeing your children happy and seeing their faces light up with joy.

It really does feel like a magical time of the year, made even more magical by family and by the fact that we have two very small people who are just learning all about Christmas. This will be Ethans third Christmas this year and Logans very first and I'm so excited to sit around our tree on Christmas day together as a family of four and watch my babies open their presents. 

I'm looking forward to getting together with family and celebrating another wonderful year. And what a year 2015 has been, with the most exciting part being the birth of the youngest member of our family and us growing from a family of three to a family of four. 2016 looks like it's going to be an exciting year already, we've got our loft conversion booked in and we've already planned a few trips away. And of course, I really am so ready to create even more wonderful memories and moments as we continue life as a family of four. 

All four of us in front of the tree in our Christmas jumpers! This little tool from myvouchercodes.co.uk is really handy if you want to find and buy your own/your family's christmas jumper/s this year. :)
