Living Arrows 53/53 – Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I hope you and your family have had a wonderful festive period. We’ve lots of time together and at the time of writing this Thomas has been enjoying a few well deserved days off work too. It’s been a bit of a weird Christmas this year, knowing that we are almost finished living in our first home together. Also, Thomas had to go to work on a night shift on Christmas Day which wasn’t ideal. But what can you do?! Anyway, Christmas was really kind to us all and today I’m wanting to share a few photos with you! I can’t believe that another year of Living Arrows is over and this is my Living Arrows 53/53 post!

Living Arrows 53/53 - Daisy leaving treats for Santa

On Christmas Eve Thomas had already gone to work so Daisy and I left out the treats for Santa. We didn’t get to use the special plate my sister got Daisy when she was born because unfortunately, I couldn’t reach it in the cupboard! Nevermind – there will always be next year won’t there! Anyway, Daisy chose a homemade mince pie, carrots for the reindeer and a glass of orange juice, as milk is poison for Daisy!

Happy Christmas Eve! I’m so excited for tomorrow. I’m going to enjoy lots of time with my family, have great presents, enjoy good food and relax lots.

Despite Daddy and Daisy being card carrying members of the poorly house, all week long, they managed to redeem themselves enough here. Daddy was next door, talking to Santa (wrapping presents!) and Santa decided to pay Daisy a visit. It was a lovely moment and unlike last year Daisy didn’t suss anything out!

I know this is a little grainy, as I took it on my phone, but Daisy wanted to take a photograph. Here she is, ready for Christmas Jumper Day at Nursery. She sat down and did a few poses for me, which gave me a chuckle first thing in the morning! Her Christmas Jumper had Peppa Pig on and she looked adorable in it. Although just like me Daisy really feels the heat and wanted to take it off by lunchtime when she finished Nursery!

Living Arrows 50/53 – almost Christmas!

Happy Monday! What a great month it has been so far! Lots to look forward to, and only 2 weeks today until Christmas Eve! This means I’ve almost completed another year of Living Arrows and I already know I’ll be taking part in 2019. I love the chance to share a snapshot of Daisy each week and look back over all the photographs and posts to see how much she is changing. This weeks living arrows 50/53 post is now live!

Here Daisy was in a really cheeky mood. We were playing with a snowman teddy, that is holding a saxophone. He plays music but doesn’t have batteries in yet. Daisy was making her own tune and singing the words to ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’ which made me laugh. She’s got such a lovely personality and when she’s in a silly mood she always makes me laugh. At times like this, I can see so much of myself in her, as I love to sing and make up tunes! Being silly is part of the fun of a 2.5-year-old so I’m trying to embrace all of these silly, fun moments.

Living Arrows 49/53 – a bedtime story

Happy Monday! I hope the week ahead is a good one. I’m looking forward to lots of family time, staying on top of my schedule with work and feeling motivated. It has been a good fortnight for getting work done and organising my home, ready for Christmas! I’m so excited this year as Daisy is really taking a big interest in everything! I can’t wait to see her face on Christmas Day when we open toys and spend most of the day playing together. I’m really working hard at the moment to make sure I can have a break over Christmas and the New Year. This weeks Living Arrows 49/53 post is now live, I hope you enjoy it.

Tom snapped this photo early in the week last week and I didn’t see it until Thursday. I’ve got a wine close to hand and we are enjoying a bedtime story together. Daisy has really settled back into her bedtime routine lately and is loving stories now more than ever.
