Whos looking forward to it? I cant wait.
We are putting the tree and decorations up a week on Monday, well when I say we, I mean me. Cos I am such a fussy cow it has to be done MY WAY.

i'm like that too!! the poor boys (6 & 4) have to do as they are told, or BIG trouble!!!
i have themes too- one tree is all silver / white with no tinsel, and the other has no balls (!), but things more suitable for the kids! like cadbury hanging chocs. oh. yes, sorry! they are for me too!! hahaha!
i think i'm gonna be off work xmas day, so when confirmed, i'll be like a big kid watching the kids open their stuff!!

I have butterflies in my stomach thinking about it. I love Matthew and Chloes faces when they open their presents, sometimes you can actually see the shaking with excitment. And I cant wait to see Tamzins reaction to all the lights. This time last year she was no more than the size of a pea inside me.

Ohhh I love Xmas!! I'm like a giant kid, I actually get too excited to sleep on Xmas eve
We have a real tree so it won't go up untill about 2nd week of Dec. Have had a fake in the past but I love the smell of the real thing, it makes the whole house smell Xmassy when you open the front door. I can't wait, mmmmm I want Xmas dinner now too!!!!

My hubby is soooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!
Our little boy is almost 2 1/2 years old now and he knows we're going to have a Christmas tree and that Father Christmas is going to deliver all the presents to all the good boys and girls!
I am looking forward to putting the tree up but not to having to glue all the decorations back together when they've been pulled to pieces by our little boy!!!
My hubby is going to have 3 weeks off work over Christmas which is going to be great for everyone, he is self-employed, so even when our daughter was born he was back at work a couple of days after.
"In the meadow we can build a snowman..."
I'm singing them all in my head at the mo!!!

I love xmas but not the shopping bit but it is spoilt a bit for me when people/shops start too early. I went to an DIY store 2 years on my birthday (can't remember why) and as I walked through the door the manager was setting up the christams grotto. I just thanked him for ruining my birthday and walk out. I haden't even made 3 staps through the door. My birthday is towards the end of August.

P.s I find boxing day is always the better more relaxed day.

i really cant wait! i wish it would come sooner. I had a xmas dinner when i was out yesterday i just couldnt say no, it was gorgeous!
Ive finished all my xmas shopping apart from oh's which i will hopefully finish tomorrow or the following week. Would love to wrap them all up right now, but i like to sit in front of the christmas tree with the lights and fire on listenin to xmas music, so i will be waiting a couple of weeks.
Ive planned out my whole day for december 6th, we are going to two xmas fairs and to see santa clause, followed by a nice meal out and then once tegan is in bed we will decorate the house ready for when she gets up on sunday morning, i cant wait to see her face!!
sorry to ramble on but im very very excited!!! xxx
