Feeling Festive!

I normally don't get into the Christmas spirit until the beginning of December, but for some reason this year, I cannot help but be super excited! So much so, that I've even given in to the kids constant request to put up the tree and decorations this coming weekend!

The shops are full to the brim with Christmas gifts and decorations, my children have been practising for their Christmas concerts, the John Lewis and Coca Cola advert have now been broadcast, and we have also been reflecting back on some photos from the last few years, so I think it must be a combination of all these things, that have left me feeling fabulously festive!

The weather for this weekend looks pretty grim, and for the first weekend in a while, no one has anything planned, no football, no parties just pure family time. I have therefore taken to Pinterest these past couple of days to plan some fun craft activities to do with the kids, and I have also found some great Christmas baking ideas, and I literally cannot wait to have a full weekend of Christmas activities!

The plan is to put some music on in the morning, then do a good couple of hours crafting and painting together, before decorating the house early afternoon. After all that hard work, we can then cosy up on the sofa and watch our favourite Christmas films (Elf, Home Alone & Deck the Halls), followed with a day of baking & playing games on the Sunday. I'm so excited!

We also have some fantastic Christmas competitions coming up on the blog next week, that I am so excited to share with you all.

Are you feeling festive yet? What activities do you enjoy to do in the run up to Christmas?
