The countdown to Christmas!...

How exciting!! It's a week until Christmas Eve, and I actually can't believe it. This year, I just feel that everything has been so bloody manic, and christmas has just crept up on me and hit me in the back of the head so hard.

I don't know if it's the joys of having more then the one child now, or if it's because SO much has happened lately. I just feel that my life is constantly rushed. I'm making a promise to myself in the New year, that I will slow down and just take 5!!
Last Christmas, Dave and I were organised and done with the shopping way before November. This year, were having to pop into town tomorrow to sort out the last few bits. (I'm still yet to sort out a present for my mum and dad!!)

Now that Phoebe has finished at Pre School until the New Year, I feel like this will give me a bit more of my time back. I'm looking forward to enjoying this time off with Phoebe, and really making the most it.

So far, this Christmas season we have already seen Father Christmas a good 4 times!! We have done so many festive activities leading up to Christmas, I don't think she's ever been so excited.
It's just so much more fun this year, as Phoebe is now 4, and this year she truly understands the whole meaning of Christmas. she remembers previous Christmas', and this year at Pre School, she starred in her first nativity and she learnt all about baby Jesus. (That was the highlight of my christmas season with Phoebe! Seeing her with her school friends all dressed up)

Every morning she wakes up, and of course the first thing she remembers is her Trolls advent calendar. We open it together, and I show her what the chocolate is, quickly before she scoffs it!!

Although things have been so manic lately, I am finally getting to a stage now where I am just so excited for the day. Christmas is my favourite time of the year, but my gosh is it stressful!?

I spent one night last week writing out about 35 christmas cards for Phoebe's pre school class. I just have not stopped.
Thats why I'm excited to have Phoebe be finished with school for Christmas. Just to have relaxing mornings, and not worry about packing lunch boxes and remember certain forms to send back to school.

I'm looking forward to just switching off from all of that and enjoying my first C
hristmas with two children. Eeeek!

Stay tuned for my many christmas updates. And soon enough I may be brave to post my first youtube video!! Possibly showing you what I got for Christmas?
