It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Last weekend turned out to be a very festive weekend! We hadn't planned it to be that way at all but we certainly ended up starting December super excited about Christmas.

I heard about a local garden centre having Santa's reindeer there last minute, which I knew Lily would absolutely love to see! So we bundled our little family into the car and off we headed very excited!

The garden centre was so lovely, with very Christmassy scenes of the North Pole to walk through, with life size moving polar bears and woodland animals, gingerbread houses and snow covered trees. Lily was absolutely amazed by it all, and when we reached the end and found the real reindeer waiting for us, her face was an absolute picture. It really was magical for her! We then stopped for lunch and had a browse of their Christmas trees before heading home.

Sunday morning, still feeling very full of Christmas spirit, I suggested going and buying our tree to David. To begin with he thought I was mad, with it still being November, but I managed to persuade him, and loving Christmas as much as I do, it wasn't too difficult!

Once we picked our perfect tree, we took it home and began decorating it as a family, with The Santa Clause on in the background and our roast in the oven. Lily loved putting decorations on the tree herself and spent so long admiring every little detail once it had all finished. Christmas this year will be extra special now she is old enough to understand everything that bit more and really get excited!

We ended our weekend with belly's full of roast dinner and the fire on as we relaxed in our cosy, Christmassy living room with a glass of wine, very much ready for December to begin.
