I can’t believe that this is Me & Mine number 12! The project has been running for a whole year and it has gone so fast! Thanks to Lucy I have 12 wonderful family photos to remember this year by.
I love Christmas Eve! My husband works so hard in the run up to Christmas and when he finally finishing work on Christmas Eve it is time for us to have some relaxing time as a family before the madness of Christmas begins.
He finishes work at about 3.30pm and we all have showers and put on our new pyjamas. (You have to have new pyjamas as Father Christmas is coming!) We then spend quality time as a family, playing games and getting excited!
Bob is obsessed by Christmas crackers, she takes after her Daddy! I bought some crackers that each had a little finger puppet inside and the box turned into a little theatre. We had a lovely time pulling the crackers and putting on shows. Bob also got an early present of Peppa Pig Snakes & Ladders which we had lots of fun playing.
Every year on Christmas Eve (even before Bob came along) we watch Santa Claus the movie. It is a tradition that my husband has continued from when he was little. This year we couldn’t find the disk. It wasn’t in the box so we watched Miracle On 34th Street instead.
We then left out some treats for Father Christmas, hung up our stockings and went to bed to read Christmas stories. It was a perfect evening!
My Me & Mine photo is far from perfect. I had just got out if the shower and hadn’t been near any make up, Bob wasn’t very well and my husband was exhausted. It is our little family on Christmas Eve though so that makes it perfect to me!
We have been plagued by tonsillitis this Christmas! Bob was ill all over Christmas and my husband and I now have it too. Many plans have had to be cancelled. Christmas was affected, my sisters 40th birthday plans were ruined and our New Year’s Eve plans have been postponed but at least we had our Christmas Eve!
Lucy who writes the wonderful blog, Dear Beautiful and is the brains behind the project, has put together a video to celebrate the first year of the Me & Mine project. I have just watched it and it gave me a lump in my throat! I am so proud to be part of this beautiful project!
As always, I will now send you onto another one of the bloggers involved in the project. This month I’m sending you to Katie’s amazing blog, Mummy Daddy Me. I love Katie’s blog, if you are unfamiliar with it you are definitely missing out!
I can’t wait to see your December Me & Mine photos! I’ve shown you Me & Mine now show me You & Yours!
