Ho Ho Ho

We are very excited about Christmas in our house. Well G Kisby and I are anyway. I have tried to whip Mabel into a frenzy about it but she is still a bit young to get it. G Kisby has questioned why I would want to anyway, "she won't sleep for the excitement". Secretly my answer is, "who cares, neither will I, Father Christmas is coming man, this is no time for sleeping"

I have whipped Fee's boys into a frenzy for years. Particularly when I was but an 18 year old student. I do admittedly see the error of my ways now (and am slightly nervous about the come back in years ahead) but will still nonetheless text one of them at an inappropriate time on Xmas eve. Probably pretending I have just seen Santa whilst up on my night feed or something on those lines...

Despite not really understanding Christmas Mabel has participated well with her advent calendar. Well, I say participated. I spent forever wrapping individual Peppa Pig characters for each bag but lacking a full 24 I filled a couple of bags with a chocolate coin. So giddy was she when number 4 turned out so that for the bags thereafter she has been very openly ("no chocolate?" as Pedro Pony is thrown down in disgust) displaying her disappointment.

Admittedly Pedro has since been very much loved but still. 

And as a quick Wilf update. He is still a very smiley boy and I almost got a chuckle singing Kylie to him the other day. His cooing is just gorgeous and I am now only getting up once in the night to feed him which is soooo much better for my sanity. 

So we pick up the giant ham tomorrow (boxing day tradition that G Kisby and Al prepare a ham that gets bigger and more extravagant every year) and I have a couple of final wee things to do (like think of my 'song of 2012' and 'guilty pleasure', another tradition where we all choose songs for the Xmas dinner playlist) but the presents are wrapped and the bags are being packed for our trip to stay with Granny. Too exciting.

Ho Ho Ho... 


  1. Have a wonderful Christmas!
