I frickin love Christmas! Love it, Love it, Love it! It’s such a great time of year, everyone seems happy, I love buying presents for people and it’s also perfectly acceptable to eat until you fall asleep- in fact, it’s practically in the rules!
The 1st December kicks off the Christmas Season and it’s acceptable to turn into a Christmas nutter! So, firstly, I was so happy that the day fell on a Friday, a day that I don’t have to work! Secondly, I had the proudest Mum moment when I saw how incredibly excited Spence was about Christmas!! He was excited he looked like he was about to explode and it wasn’t down to the chocolate from his advent calendar!
Spence is finally old enough to really get into Christmas, I had bought a few things last year for us to do but Spence was a bit young and not really interested in doing them. But this year…is the year! We did them all in the first day!
We started by making Christmas cards: I bought a pack from ELC last year that had pictures on which Spence could decorate with stickers. He had fun decorating them and picking which family member would receive each one- making sure he kept one for himself obviously!
We then made Christmas paper chains! We made so many that we managed to hang some across the room then put some more up in Spencer’s room.
We also had another pack where we could assemble and decorate a foam Christmas Tree. Spence had been pestering me to do it all afternoon, we were about 5 mins into it when Spence announced ‘this is boring, isn’t it?’ It’s possible Spence got a bit ‘christmas’ed out’! We finished the mini tree then went back to watching Christmas films.
Once Mark finished work, we put the tree up. Well, Mark and Spence put the tree up while I kept Coen busy so he didn’t pull everything down!
We had the best first day of December, I so can’t to see what else we have in store!! xx
