For the first time since I was a little girl, there is the smell of fresh pine wafting through the house. We decided on a real tree this year. As soon as we walked into the underground real tree shop (aka Underground car park under Coles) We were both instantly taken back to our childhoods. It's so funny how smells do that! She is beautiful and fresh and all ours!
Gus has already started to 'get' Christmas. He knows how to place ornaments on the tree and then drop them to the floor in quick succession. And he loved boogieing to Michael Buble's christmas album while we finished the tree.
This is our first christmas in our place and it felt really lovely to dress her up. Here are a few shots.....
I am so excited for Christmas this year. Working in retail sometimes takes the joy out of the season. But I can't wait to see Gus's sweet face light up when he sees what's under that paper and ribbon!
Only 7 sleeps to go! What are your plans for Chrissy? Hopefully lots of food and pressies and family and laughter.
Love Lil xx
