Remembering Loved Ones
Our traditional Christmas decorating day (the first Saturday in December) fell on Aiden’s dad’s birthday this year. It was a bittersweet day for us all as his dad died last December, a week after his birthday.
We bought a special decoration to put on the mantelpiece to remember him.
It was a different kind of day for us as well because KayCee is a full-time catering student and she has 2 part-time jobs working in kitchens.
She had to work on our decorating day so we had to wait until she came home before we could make a start.
It usually takes all day to decorate which meant the decorating took place over 2 days instead of one because of our late start.
I didn’t get as many photos this year, either. I managed to get 1 of Aiden who allowed me to put it on the blog (he hates having his picture taken!) but I didn’t get any of KayCee. She wasn’t up to having her photo taken after a very busy day at work.
First snowball of the year 🙂
I’ve wanted a ceramic Christmas tree for a few years so I was really pleased to receive this from everyone on decorating day.
Ella’s tall enough to put the fairy on without help. It made me a bit sad because they’re all growing up too fast.
Our treat trolley is one of our favourite things about Christmas 🙂
Our Christmases feel different now they’re getting older but we’ll get used to the changes and enjoy them in time.
