But I am actually a little bit excited already.
Maybe it is the planned trip to Fiji with the fam, my in-laws and s-i-l and kids? (It has to help I know).
Maybe it is the fact that Nugget and Doo Dah are getting older and more into the Christmas spirit?
Maybe it is because I took my own advice and have barred all things "Christmas catch-up" this year and have deferred seeing some people until the new year? What's a few weeks?
Whatever it is, I am liking it.
We kicked off December with the unveiling of the Advent calendars yesterday morning. This year I just bought some from Aldi but I usually do a home made one for each of the kids. The kids are loving the hit of chocolate circa 7am.
Last night we broke open the money-box we have been saving change in for the year, counted the loot and Doo Dah and I are heading off to the shops tonight to get a present for Nugget and the Minx. Next week, Nugget and I will buy for Doo Dah and Dew Drop. They are so excited and have been glued to the toy catalogues for weeks in preparation. Maybe that is why Nugget still can't sleep?
Doo Dah, the twins and I went to the shops this morning (brave I know) to get some final decorations for the Christmas tree
There's a whole lot of Chrismassy goodness going on at our place. What have you been up to?
