Our Elf on the Shelf Experience

Elf on a shelf………Eek excited much?????

I seen this everywhere last year and could not wait till Evelyn was old enough that we could join in on this brilliant family tradition.

So our little Elf will come to visit us from the North Pole on the 1st December and will get up to all sorts of things while we are sleeping, each morning we have to find where she is. Every night she fly’s back to Santa to report on all the things our family has been up to that day and if we have been naughty or nice.

Each day in December we are going to share all the mischief our Elf gets upto, so make sure to check out our YouTube channel to keep up to date.

Please find the link to the full December Elf on the Shelf playlist. 24 days of fun πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas!!!

Meeting Father Christmas at Chessington Garden Centres Grotto

We have been so excited about this day. HO! HO! HO! πŸ™‚

We recently took our girls to see Father Christmas at a Grotto, and Chessingtons wonderful theme did not disappoint as you can see from Evelyn’s reaction. We had such good fun and have some great memories of the visit.

We hope you enjoy watching our visit.

It was also our first attempt at car vlogging with a Go Pro Hero 5. We think it went ok :-S lol!!!

Christmas is Coming | Putting up our Tree

Christmas is coming…….

So it has always been tradition in our house to put our tree up the first week in December. I love decorating our tree and myself and John have collected decorations from different parts of the world and places we have traveled, so each year when we sit down and gaze at our tree we can relive all the wonderful memories we have created in these amazing places.

I always make John put on the Christmas music and we (ok maybe just me) have a little dance and sing along. This year it seemed extra special as Evelyn is at an age where she is really starting to get Christmas and the excitement of it all.
