Santa – Ho! Ho! Ho! Or Oh No?

Ho! Ho! Ho! Or Oh No?

I remember when J first met Santa, he was just under a year old when the local Inshore Rescue brought Santa on his sleigh to visit. J seemed rather fascinated by the big mans beard but other than that he wasn’t particularly bothered by the event. J has since continued to be fairly cool about the whole ‘meeting Santa scenario’, his first Christmas J seemed to have that many meetings with Santa at random parties and such like that by Christmas Santa was practically family!

E on the other hand is a different kettle of fish, it was certainly not love at first sight when Evfirst met Santa.…

#LivingArrows – The Christmas Isolation Unit 

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows brought to you directly from the ‘Christmas isolation unit’. Poor E is even more covered in spots today despite there being hardly any room left for said additional spots.

I have spent the day huddled indoors suffering with four wall syndrome whilst attempting to keep my little chicken and her big brother entertained with random Christmas crafts and activities. My apologies but this weeks photos may be a little on the dull side for obvious reasons.

We decorated the Christmas cake…

And We Coloured Christmas Pictures.

We also watched several Christmas movies, put together numerous Peppa Pig jigsaws, played a couple of board games including J’s current favourite, Labyrinth.…

The Holidays Are Coming And Chickenpox Has Come To Roost.

In the words of ‘Coca Cola’ “the holidays are coming”. The kids have officially finished for Christmas and we have one week to go before all hell breaks loose. Well actually hell has already broken loose in our household…

Party Time

As expected the kids each had a Christmas party to attend which luckily fell on the same day to dampen the flames of sibling rivalry. E wore a simple Christmas patterned swing dress which just so happens to match my own Christmas swing dress, yes I too was sucked into matching Christmas outfits for Mums and Babes.

J on the other hand had to go to school in his uniform much to his disgust and then change into his party outfit that afternoon.…

#MySundayPhoto – My Favourite Christmas Decoration 

As it’s Christmas I thought I ought to share my favourite Christmas decoration with you. This particular ornament was purchased last year whilst holidaying as a family in Disneyland Paris.

It was an amazing holiday filled with happy memories especially for the kids. Whenever we visit Disney we always keep a few pennies aside to purchase a few decorations for the tree.

This is my current favourite as it reminds me of our first holiday abroad as a family to the place where dreams do indeed come true. Each time I look at the tree and see this decoration I am instantly transported back to Main Street USA where we nipped into the Christmas shop to choose this beauty.…
