Wishing you a very Merry Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas…….

Oh it is so exiting now! One more sleep to go.

I am finding it especially fun this year now that Sabre has a much better understanding and is so exited herself. In fact she is desperately begging me to fill up the mug with milk for Father Christmas as I type this….I am busy telling her that he might not like sour milk if we leave it there all day so it will be best to do it before going to bed tonight.

She has also “accidently” torn a corner of gift wrap of one of the presents under the tree, then exclaimed it must be for her because she can see pink. 

I just can’t wait until the morning to see her face when she discovers the trampoline that Father Christmas delivered her. We wrote our letter to him at the start of the week asking for one and she was a little concerned over how he would fit it in his sleigh but I assured her he would. Must remember to charge the video camera battery tonight to capture some fun tomorrow.

Today will just involve some preparation and cooking. Our actual Christmas day will be fairly quiet. We have my sister and brother in law here and will be doing a lunch. The morning will be a present opening, a big breakfast followed by putting together the trampoline….oh I hope this doesn’t take too long?  We aren’t able to do it tonight as Dan is working so hopefully Sabre will have enough patience with her other gifts to keep her busy whilst she waits tomorrow. We can then all burn lunch off by some exuberant jumping on the trampoline. Well….probably not a good idea for me this late in pregnancy……..hmmmmmmm then again…..

Table setting will be fairly simple. Just the ordinary dinner ware we use but add a few baubles and a bon bon and it is instant simple Christmas. We will probably have a relaxed afternoon of beaching and a refreshing drink somewhere before Dan goes back to work that evening and we can have leftovers for dinner. Ahhh my favourite bit of Christmas……..leftovers and a relaxed warm summer evening reflecting on the great day.

Sabre with Father Christmas at playgroup last week. At little unsure but at least she would get close to him this year unlike previous years.

Whatever you are doing today in your Christmas preparations  and for Christmas Day, Jemma and I are hoping that you all have fun and joy in doing so and that tomorrow you have the most lovely day!

 Ollie Rose will be remaining open of course….unless of course that trampoline jumping does get things moving around here and I deliver a Christmas baby!

    Aaah, pesky night work. Hope Dan enjoyed the day anyway. Scott is off for a while – he sustained a severe concussion after being kicked while loading a “client” into a van. He is ok, just needs time for his brain to recover. Hope Dan has some time off when baby number two arrives 🙂
    I adore the little reindeer plate/cup/toy – so so cute!
    Sabre looks super excited!
    No, we haven’t found out the gender of Baby #3….although I am feeling more temptation than I did with the boys…be strong be strong
