The girls, Hubby and I are sick with head colds, however, Little Man is as strong as an ox, and showed this when he had the mother of all tantrums and tried to stomp his way through his bedroom floor to the garage below. Before, what shall now be known as, The Epic Meltdown of 2016, we had gathered enough strength to do some Christmas decorating…
Despite Oscar The Christmas Cat being in full “this is my tree and no one can come within a meter of it” defensive mode almost immediately, we had a really great time. LM has a full understanding of what Christmas is, when Santa will come and the magic of it all. I got nostalgic over all of our decorations, many conjuring memories of past Decembers, and Hubby said it felt special to be celebrating in our new home as a family of five.
We’ve had such an eventful 2016 and I feel really fortunate to be able to say that this is the girls first Christmas. I feel complete and content and not at all disturbed by finding tinsel in Oscars litter tray already.
