It’s always fun to see the reindeer wreath go up on our front door. He made me smile when we returned home from the hospital with POD in 2010. Everyone loves him.
Daddy was away last weekend so the decorations were up earlier than usual. They look fantastic and POD is definitely embracing the festive spirit. The Christmas characters are often treated to a ride in her buggy – Father Christmas has already lost some beard as a result!
The hand-made advent calendar looks wonderful on the wall. POD has got to grips with opening presents on consecutive days now after accidentally unwrapping the wrong one.
Elf on the Shelf was introduced as a bit of fun for POD. She named him “Elf the Elf” but then settled on “Ben Elf”. Although she enjoys searching for him, the no touching rule doesn’t apply here and he’s often doing the splits!
We took the Eurotunnel to France recently and enjoyed a short break in Bruges. Those decorative displays in Europe never fail to make you feel festive! While we were there we also got to see the incredible Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival which is based on Disney’s new animation Frozen. Just brilliant!
Next Monday sees us return to the crystal grotto at Painshill Park where POD will meet Father Christmas for the first time.
