These Days

The days around here lately have been filled and busy in the preparation for visitors and Christmas, whilst there is winding down in some areas of our life like work and kinder the other areas are winding up with shopping, present wrapping, menu planning and catch ups.

We have spent more days at the beach with lovely friends, making our Christmas puddings and baking, had dinners out, more crafting with the kids {oh the glitter!} and watched Riley perform at his end of year concert {which was heart meltingly, tear jerkingly awesome}.

I love this time of year, I can feel the excitement building and it makes me feel childlike once again. We have lots of things planned over the next couple of days/week, spending lots of time with some pretty special people which I'm looking forward too. Mostly I'm looking forward to Christmas with my gorgeous little ones, the are so SO excited, the first year they have really 'got it', so magical to behold.

This weekend we have a fabulous Mexican inspired feast planned as part of our Christmas celebration with my family. I cannot wait!

Wishing you all a happy and festive weekend!
