I don’t know how, but Christmas always seems to creep up on me. I’m pretty good at planning and usually have presents ready well ahead of time. But this year, I’m not quite there yet and I have a feeling I’ll be wrapping presents very late on Christmas Eve.
Truth be told, I wish I could fast forward past Christmas, and kick start 2016! But I have my beautiful girl to remind me of the joys of Christmas, and seeing it through her eyes really is lovely. Her excitement leading up to the big day is so endearing and the innocence of believing in Santa is so sweet.
We’ve been doing Elf on the Shelf, and every morning Ava wakes up asking after our Elf, who we named Andy. Her eyes light up at the thought of him flying back from the North Pole after reporting in to Santa. I’ve been making a special effort to create funny scenarios for Elf Andy and she just loves it.
So we’re coming to the end of the year and I’m really looking forward to a break. We’ll be heading down the coast for a few days in the new year and I can’t wait. Bring it on! Do you have any exciting plans for the holidays?
