The Christmas excitement has begun!

Ok, I have refrained from mentioning the C word for long enough! The children and I are so excited about Christmas, this weekend we kicked off the festive season by baking some festive cookies (look out for my blog post about them next weekend!)

We also went to a Christmas Party which was organised by one of the lovely School mums. Chester and Millie, along with all of the other children, couldn't believe their luck when Father Christmas turned up! 

Because the 'Book Advent' went down so well last year, I decided to do it again. So I spent a lot of time yesterday wrapping up 24 different Christmas books. This year I brought 4 new ones for us to enjoy, and of course I wrapped up my beloved childhood book 'Twas the night before Christmas to enjoy of Christmas Eve! 

This evening I have been busy getting all of the advent goodies ready. This year I was lucky enough to get the playmobil advent calendars on offer when we went to France, and my parents brought the children a wooden advent, which I have stuffed with sweet treats! 

I can't wait to see their faces in the morning, it really is a magical time of year!
