well it's that time of year. the Chrissy decorations have been up in the shops for a while, and Santa is having his photo taken with the kiddies at all the Westfield stores!
i have usually done all my shopping by now- i normally shop throughout the year, but this year hasn't worked out that way. i have had some fun shopping with friends and my fabulous cousin though. nearly done now! and then there's all the wrapping!
i have taken all the Christmas decorations down out of the linen cupboard ( and had a "linen cupboard" clean out at the same time) and am all ready for tomorrow when we put up our tree.
we have a bit of a family tradition in our home- lots of nibbles, Christmas music and of course a glass of bubbles while we decorate the tree on our chosen afternoon. the girls also choose a new decoration each year and love to choose their own advent calender with choccies to see out the 24 day countdown until Christmas morning.
they each have their own pretty stocking- one of which is pictured above.
i hope you also have fun during this hectic but fun season!
