Flashback Friday : Putting Up The Christmas Tree

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.

    This is so sweet. I love the fact they're dressed up too. It's hard to resist the lure of festivity, even if it has seemed to sneak up early this year!
