Countdown To Christmas

It took a whole afternoon to decorate our home last weekend, but now it feels really Christmassy. My boys are soooooo excited now that the decorations are up, it's non stop questions about Father Christmas and when he is going to come. I don't know how we are going to contain their excitement for another week and a half!!

It's going to be a lovely Christmas this year, we have my whole family coming to us for Christmas Dinner, so we need to make sure we're stocked up with lots of firewood to keep a roaring fire going all day. I am extremely lucky that my husband loves cooking as he is the Christmas Dinner Cook for the whole family so I get to relax a bit and make sure everyone is having a good time.

Tomorrow we are in for a real treat, we are taking our boys to a "Lapland Experience" in Kent (thankfully not the awful one that has been in the news lately). The boys are so excited, they will get to see the Elves at work in their workshop, visit the Gingerbread House, see real Reindeer and Huskies, go Ice Skating and get to see Father Christmas, it should be a wonderful day. Check it out at I'll be sure to post all the pics here within the next few days!

Here in house, in the Christmas, the kitchen is mine. My wife decorates the house and arranges the table, for the meeting of the family. I find that Native he is this, congregated family and much love. A happy Christmas for all.
