I don’t know about you but this past week flew past as we approached Christmas. I was grateful that all our plans of organising and prioritising certain things earlier on in the month led to a really relaxed week rather than rushing around shops last minute. Luke is always faithful to wake up early and nip to the shop for fresh staples before Christmas and this year was the same. I really do appreciate not facing that.
With Nathanael’s last week at school before the Christmas holidays there were lots of festive activities to be a part of, from coming home with snow globes and candy canes to having a full staged pantomime at school, he was really in a celebratory mood and was looking forward to Christmas even when walking to school.
We finished off the Old Testament at our Life Group and Judah got slightly festive with his attire!
We also celebrated Christmas a few days early on Saturday with Luke’s parents, the boys love spending time with their grandparents and we were so fortunate to receive life membership to the National Trust. I am already eagerly planning new trips if you are a member or have visited some National Trust places let me know.
On Christmas Eve we got to spend some time with our friends at church which was lovely! All of our children were very excited for Christmas Day and there is nothing more fun than kids with presents!
Later on Christmas Eve my sister and brother in law visited which the boys thought Christmas had arrived early. With gift exchanges made, the highlight of the day had to be Nathanael being equal parts thrilled and terrified of Don’t Take Busters Bones game.
It was such an exiting week, and I am looking forward to sharing the week of Christmas with you all too.
