We have such a busy schedule most of the time that we decided weeks back that this would be the weekend we would set aside to go and choose our Christmas tree, decorate the house and just generally get ourselves into the festive spirit! We decided last minute to go with my sister, her husband and my new niece who’s only 5 weeks old to choose our trees and we ended up going for breakfast first with my Dad too.
When I was younger we always had a fake tree but when I met Josh his family always had a real one and I was very quickly converted to real Christmas trees. You just can’t beat the smell of a real tree when you come downstairs on a chilly December morning. Since Bella was born we have bought our tree from the same local farm shop so we headed back there for the third year in a row (how is this her THIRD christmas already!?.. Sob). I think subconsciously I insist we always go there for sentimental reasons. It’s sort of become a little tradition of ours I suppose.
After we chose our tree we headed home for the afternoon to decorate it whilst listening to some classic cheesy christmas songs on Youtube and we even cracked open the tub of christmas chocolates which was definitely the highlight for Bella 😉
Here’s a few of my favourite snaps from our first festive family day of the season!

I hope everyone else enjoyed the first weekend of December as much as I did and are now feeling nice and festive!
