It’s the last day of the month and the last day of 2016 and I actually have my me and mine photo ready. I want to say that we took a lovely family photo in-front of our Christmas tree but Christmas day was hectic. So this month we have another selfie taken when we took the children to see Disney on ice Frozen last Tuesday.
December has been a very busy month for us, this year we have had two Christmas concerts to attend, two fates basically two of everything. Unfortunately Darren was unable to attend both Christmas concerts due to his shift pattern at work but we did get the chance to spend family time together at a Winter Wonderland break at Center Parcs. Ethan loves Center Parcs and we had a very relaxing weekend there. Little E also got to ride a pony for the very first time, she loved every minute of it.
As much as we liked our weekend away we did feel that it added an extra pressure onto our Christmas preparations. If we got the chance to go to Winter Wonderland again we would go nearer the start of the month.
The children have really enjoyed December, Little E has loved seeing all the Christmas trees and the Christmas lights are always a hit with Ethan. The best bit for me has been hearing Ethan sing his Christmas songs, and hearing them singing jingle bells together really melted my heart.
As I write this and think about how stressful I find December, I really think the children have loved every minute. Hopefully in the New Year I will get the time to catch up and share all the memories we made.
