Happy new Year!
So I’ve been on the missing list and taking a break from my blog, hope you all had as fab a xmas as I did. At the age of 5 and 2 Xmas is turning into a very exciting time in my house and for the forseeable I can only hope that will get even better.
One of the main reasons for me taking a break in December was the amount of pressure put on us parent/blog writers to do arts, crafts, magic elves, xmas eve boxes, santa visits etc etc and as much as admire you all for all your hard work I felt the need not to be judged over the holiday period with how much (or little!) I actually did.!
I’m not saying we didn’t do anything festive but as you may of read in my earlier post I just can’t abide the elf on the shelf. Now I get it if it’s fun etc but all these people picturing their elf drinking wine, making a mess etc well I won’t go on…
So whilst I put my grinch mask down…
We had an elf door for the first time this year. Z loved the fact that their letters to Santa were whizzed off with his ‘lease’ agreement.
We went to our local Xmas lights turn on and supported the local scouts, schools etc with all their stalls.
We visited our schools xmas fair and meet Santa and went snow boarding. Luckily we saw the big man there as we got chicken pox on the day of our official visit 😦
We were very proud of Zachary being the kind InnKeeper in his Xmas play.
We enjoyed dressing up and being silly with lots of Xmassy props.
We left our stockings and treats for Santa out.
Mummy even had some fun at her Xmas party and with friends.
Then Xmas day was the best!
Lets see what 2016 can bring!
