For the first time EVER, this Christmas , I had Christmas Eve off. Infact I had every day off, if you don't count my hugely demanding and pretty stressful job of a Mum of 4 young kids, but it was the first year I did not have to work at the salon, as a hairdresser. Battle with staff, Eftpos machines that think its a great day to stop working, cranky and highly stressed customers that have too much left to do , and people that think 3pm on Christmas Eve is a good time to decide to get a spontaneous haircut.
Not this time, yippppeeee!
So... we spent the day , getting ready and into the festive spirit.
It was lovely.
It started with some crafting. Simple Christmas baubles that we coloured in, ran a few stamps over and glued some pretties to, finished with some laminating.
Then some Christmas flowers for a few special people.
Ahhh a beautiful little vase with our flowers!
And we made a few bags of Reindeer food.
Set out Santas snacks
And the reindeers food and water bucket, all ready to be filled and put out after we returned home from a yummy dinner at my parents house!
On the way home from dinner (to try and settle a VERY VERY excited Stella) we went for a drive looking at some pretty lights, and sang some songs.
When we got home, the sleeping twins were put to bed, and Stella sprinkled the Reindeer food.
And made sure Santa could get in!!
And finally it was time for bed.
And we got to work, playing Father Christmas......
It was such a magical day with our beautiful family, its the stuff memories are made of!
