It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas


It's December! Only the loveliest month, yeh? Not only is it the countdown to Christmas, but it's Jack the boys birthday month. Imagine. He'll be 3. A big 3 year old. What a blessing he is!

Jack was so excited about putting our tree up after seeing Nanny's tree last week. So, we clambered into the roofspace last night, dusted off the decorations, and Jack got right into the middle of it all. Many of the more delicate decorations didn't survive I'm sorry to say, but I was glad to see such enthusiasm! You can see we have lots of Queens guards decorations. Jack is obsessed with marching and 'the marching men' as he calls them. More on this some other time. He has also learned to whistle. You always know where Jack is, because where there's Jack, there's a whistle. He's dead good too.

Being a bit of an over thinker like his Ma, Jack is not real keen on the idea of Santa climbling down the chimney to leave him gifts. In fact, he says he doesn't want any toys at all if it means he has to see Santa. How do you expain this to a 2 year old? I mean, the concept is pretty terrifying. I haven't yet decided how to handle this. Any advice would be appreciated.

We've been opening the windows in Jack's advent calendars. That's right. The lucky thing has 2, count 'em, 2 advent calendars. One contains chocolate treats. The other has a nice picture. Guess which one Jack prefers.



Jack is wearing his choo choo train pyjama's from Jo Jo Maman Bebe. Check out Jack's personalised Fair Ilse stocking from Pottery Barn. Santa will definitely know who this belongs to. Jack wants it filled with lots of cars, trucks and tractors please. He says you can skip the bubble bath. But I bet a few chocolate coins wouldn't go amiss.

Fill 'er up there, Santy.

  1. What a cutie! Can't believe he is almost 3. I wouldn't worry about Santa, most littles are terrified of him and soon exchange the fear for fun!

  6. I love the bauble halo! If he doesn't like the idea of Santa down a chimney could Santa visit a porch or a garage or somewhere separate from the rest of the house?

  7. What lovely photos! He looks so excited :) You're going to have fun! And, don't worry too much about Santa, mine weren't too keen when they were smaller either - getting presents seemed to make up for it! #TheOrdinaryMoments

  10. Enthusiasm and christmas decorations don't always mix well. After last year's breakages, I made sure I unpacked the boxes this year. Live and learn. Beautiful photos. Like Sara says, I wouldn't worry about Santa anxiety. Most children go through that stage. #CreativeMondays
