Christmas Magic

I love this time of year, so many magical memories being made and moments to share with our children, I just love the smells, smiles and fun that surrounds it.

So far, in the run up to Christmas, we have built a gingerbread house, which amazingly is still waiting to be eaten...


Also, this weekend, we took the children to the local garden centre to visit santa. He was the perfect Santa, jolly, kind and really took time to listen to both our children. They were both ecstatic to meet him, got to tell him all about what they wanted and they let us take as many pictures as we wanted.


Finally, because we all love the Christmas tree, I think it has to be my favourite part of Christmas, because of the smell, the lights, spending time decorating it, admiring its beauty but mostly because it is the place where all the presents go on the big day.


There are so many beautiful things to look at and remember, hopefully making magic for the children in years to come.

  6. Christmas time is just filled with magic moments isn't it? I love your gingerbread house, very artistically decorated, it wouldn't have finished the decorations stage in our house before it was devoured! It's great when Santa's are good and really pay attention to what the children want isn't it? Your tree looks wonderful! Merry Christmas.
