Flashback Friday : Putting Up The Christmas Tree 2013...

My youngest two are all excited for the weekend when we can go into the garage to sort out the Christmas decorations. On Monday I have been told by them, we will be putting tree up. 

I was thinking maybe we will wait a while this year, however after a trip to the shops today I had a change of heart., Seeing all the shops decorated, the Christmas music playing and every other shop seemingly selling Christmas jumpers I was finally getting into the Christmas season. I just wish my bank balance was!!

So once school is done Friday we will get the kids a new jumper, set up the advent calenders, then wait until Monday morning to trim up.

A few pictures of last year.

My Perfect Christmas Dinner with Family Outfit...


A few weeks ago Marisota asked me if I would like to style some clothes for the perfect event this Christmas. I love a nights out, shopping trips and visiting family and the best day of the year for me is Christmas day. I love to spend this day with all my beautiful family. Our eldest son home from university, the children all home together. Perfect. My favourite day of the whole year.


My Perfect Christmas Day would go something like this...

All kids awake, all deny they woke up first, all deny they woke anyone else up. Ok then all up check Santa's sherry drunk carrot for reindeer eaten. Living room door open squeals, shrieks, minutes of shaking Santa has been!!All corners of room taken up by one of our children's presents. Quick breakfast washed down with tin of chocolates and mince pie. (not the whole tin).

Phone up family, wish them a Happy Christmas. Hope they had a lie in, and have had a nice morning.

Quick check all presents have been opened. Me and daughter get dressed up, nice dress the more sparkles the better. Glittery shoes or this year sandals on and a little bit of ruby red lipstick. Remember Turkey is not in oven, quickly dash to start it off.

A glass of wine for the cook when making dinner, perfect start to the day. Big dinner with all the trimming, eek.. Brussels sprouts all-round!! A few hours later it is time to eat again, grandma and granddad is coming for tea...
